High Impact Wedding Décor

Event designer Sasha Souza pairs a rainbow coalition of bright hues with black for a sophisticated take on wedding color and design.


“These are definitely not classic wedding colors. Bright hues juxtaposed with black are a complete 180 from what most people expect to see at a wedding," says Sasha Souza, event designer & CEO, Sasha Souza Events.  “The couple wanted their wedding to echo what they might choose for their own home. This let me approach the event design in a truly personal way."
