Succulents & Cream

Modern wedding themes, with their sharp lines and muted colors, can often feel simplistic and cold.  But add a bright color into the mix and a couple can transform their contemporary nuptials from a bleak futuristic to a warm contemporary fete.  This is exactly what Kristin & Rob did for their Monterey, California nuptials.  Filled with succulents and accents of grey, cream, & yellow, this adorable couple’s wedding day was anything but cold.  Further, special details gave the day a loving air – Kristin honored her father’s memory with a charm on her bouquet; guests were served a delicious lemon …
