Hot (and Cool) Wedding Colors | Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year

By, January 12, 2016

Pantone 2016 Color of the YearAlong with the New Year comes the announcement of Pantone’s Color of the Year! For 2016, Pantone broke from tradition for the first time in history, and made not one but two selections: Rose Quartz and Serenity. These colors combine aspects of warm and cool tones, creating a perfect sense of fresh balance and calm. We decided to show how Pantone’s winners can add to the wedding day fun, and create new possibilities this wedding season.

As you will see in the photos below, both Rose Quartz and Serenity make for dynamic and memorable wedding accent colors. The subtle, muted blues of Serenity are cool and tranquil, while Rose Quartz complements with its punch of pink vibrance. When paired together, the romantic, sunset effect will leave your guests enchanted. Both colors are great any time of year, and can be augmented by a variety of greens and purples, or splashes of silver and yellow. In addition, these hues can be found in the natural environment, creating a dramatic and artistic backdrop for wedding day images.

If you’re looking to add an elegant twist to your big day, we’ve gathered the perfect inspiration for incorporating these trending colors. Scroll through the images below highlighting Rose Quartz and Serenity, and make sure to pin your favorites :)

A Wedding at a Private Residence in Point Loma with EverAfter Events

By, August 01, 2012

It can be a wonderful experience creating your own wedding – and an even better experience when you have help!  At EverAfter Events, we work together with our brides and grooms to coordinate all the details, and celebrate the unique personalities of each couple.

Recently, we had the opportunity to work with Patrick and Sherry. They are an amazingly sweet couple who both just started their residencies here in town! Together with the couple, we planned the perfect wedding at Patrick’s parent’s home in Point Loma. The gorgeous antique-style decor was a perfect complement to the refined couple, and the elegant atmosphere of the day.

The ceremony space was set up in the backyard of the home, overlooking all of downtown San Diego. It was a breathtaking landscape for an intimate ceremony.

Sherry’s bridesmaids wore purple dresses that fell just below the knee, which were beautifully accented by purple and pink florals.

To change up the scenery, the couple chose to go to Balboa Park for some more bridal party and personal photos.

Dinner was held in the quaint roundabout in the front courtyard, which was surrounded by lovely florals and lush greens.

Gold tones were carried throughout the wedding. Gold chargers accented each place setting, as well as and personal menu cards that featured the couple’s elegant monogram. Each table was named after one of Sherry and Patrick’s favorite restaurants. What a fabulous event it was!

Unique Wedding Cakes by Cake Ball Love

By, July 05, 2012

I offer something different to the wedding industry — Cake Ball Cakes! I take a favorite of the modern dessert table, the cake ball, and incorporate it into something that is very traditional, the wedding cake. I like applying new and classic cake decorating techniques to create something fresh and unique. So you’re literally having your cake and eating it too!

I recently had the chance to work with Rachel and Ian, who celebrated their marriage at La Valencia in La Jolla.  Rachel contacted me to make a cake ball cake for her wedding, and I was given free range! Their wedding colors included several shades of purple, so they wanted a cake made of something chocolate and purple!

I had been wanting to tackle a cake ball cake with an “ombre effect” — colors or tones that shade into each other, graduated from light to dark — so this was the perfect opportunity! This is one of my favorite cakes I’ve made to date.  The graduation of purples juxtaposed against the backdrop of the amazing reception room is just beautiful.

One of my favorite details about this cake was the bride and groom cake toppers — the chocolate top hat in particular. I thought this looked so adorable.

I was so excited to see this photo, as I rarely get to see the bride and groom during the wedding. This couple looks so beautiful and completely happy.

I adore this photo. It’s always fun to see the “feeding” ceremony. There’s so much giddiness and a touch of mischief during this part of the reception.
