Lovely Lake Michigan Wedding by Paul Retherford

I absolutely love the colors used in this Lake Michigan wedding. Pretty navy and lime green made the perfect destination wedding palette for this super adorable couple. Peggie and Sam, two New York City love birds, took their vows at the Beachwalk Resort in front of their closest family and friends last September. Lucky for us, Paul Retherford from Paul Retherford Wedding Photography has decided to let us in on the lakeside love fest.  We thank you Paul!

Color Palette: Gold, Seafoam Blue, Green and Orange

After seeing the strikingly beautiful photo (top left), I challenged myself to come up with an inspiration board using this photo for you lovely ladies.  I surprised myself how the colors gold, seafoam blue, green and orange actually came together so easily and amazingly well.  These colors remind me of a casual chic lakeside wedding, blending in the colors of nature all around.

I would image it would take little decor (a budget saver) since the trees, natural flowers, and streaming water would be enough to create a breathtaking scenary for you and your guests.  Although the pops of orange and green are often seen used for fall weddings, with the softer creams, golds, and blue hues, I can still picture this to be a perfect palette for a spring time, April or May wedding as well.

What do you ladies think of these colors together?
