Pink comes in so many shades – blush, fuchsia, mauve, hot pink – and the flower world offers lots of variations of this romantic color. So when Shruti and Alec came to us to design their Calamigos Malibu wedding, we couldn’t wait to use the wide spectrum of pinks available to us.
First, the ceremony: We built a clear, modern mandap with acrylic and bordered the top with a mix of pink and ivory flowers. We also swagged a beautiful pink-mauve chiffon fabric along the top and sides of the structure.
The ceremonial garlands for bride and groom featured purple-white and soft pink carnations, along with perfect stripes of deep green.
At the reception, tall centerpieces displayed a variety of pinks – roses, spray roses, touches of deep cranberry amaranthus – with surprising counterpoints of blue hydrangeas, a subtle addition that added depth. Purple orchids dripped down from the arrangements for extra drama.
And last but not least? The horse! A beautiful white horse carried the groom during the baraat, and we tied a lovely posy of flowers to the steed’s braided tail.
There’s nothing prettier than pink, and we had a blast designing this stunning wedding!
