To incorporate the bold hues throughout their wedding design, lush rose-colored and fuschia blooms spruced up the outdoor ceremony and were incorporated into a wow-worthy hanging installation above the head table during their reception. Colorful roses and peonies weren’t just seen in the floral arrangements either—this playful floral theme was also used in the couple’s wedding-day signage, such as ceremony programs, invitations, menu cards, and more.
To really add some personalization, Jess and Jay also had a subtle nod to their dog, Frankie—thanks to their hot-pink champagne bottle escort wall, complete with a neon sign of the newlyweds’ last name. The La Marca champagne bottles, featuring an illustration of Frankie, doubled as favors.
