signature cocktails • signature colors

i love putting chic idea tapestries together, but for this post, i couldn't decide between sharing my latest color inspirations or one of my favorite wedding elements: the signature cocktail.

so, i figured, why not both? after all, shouldn't your signature drink be a reflection of your motif?

orange and brown are classic combinations. this board features a tequila-spiked chimayo cocktail that not only coordinates, but tastes delicious. apple cider gives it a kick and its unique color.

sandy champagnes, muted golds and a playful seaside / beach theme keep the overall palette from seeming too formal. our starfish beach wedding invitation also blends well with the theme, staying upscale in a relaxed way.


for the daring couple who wants vibrant color, aqua and cherry are exceptionally harmonious. the pop of red against a calm blue background is at once fun, eye-catching, and sophisticated.

the cherry blossom wedding cake by amber in norfolk is stunning — and, it's vegan! it is also the perfect complement to our peony wedding invitation, lined with japanese cherry blossom paper.

the cocktail here is just as bold: a boston pops martini garnished with cherry pop rocks. can you stand it? so cool! like the palette, it's a choice for the totally hip.
