I originally wanted to do black and white with pops of fuchsia but after discovering my love for my ivory and champagne colored dress I decided to go with pops of red instead.  I wanted to keep the colors pretty simple because our ceremony was going to be outside and I wanted the nature to be able to really pop in our pictures.

For flowers, we went with roses.  I wanted everything to be really romantic and for me nothing is more romantic than a red rose.  These pictures are the result of our color palette:

Flowers from the seating area for the ceremony
The bridesmaid bouquets

My bouquet, which was a smidge bigger than the bridesmaids’ bouquets and had pearl pins in the middle of each rose

See what I mean about the gorgeous nature around my parents’ house?

Dustin’s vest was the same as the boys only ivory instead of red

 My girls wore black dresses with red shoes and red Pashminas

The boys

With all of the greenery everywhere I am so glad we went with really simple colors because I feel like any other way would have looked out of control.  Even looking back now I still love the flowers and colors.
