Artistic Watercolor-Inspired Wedding Ideas

Lush watercolor details and fresh greenery enhance the natural beauty of this joyful Pacific Northwest celebration held on the cusp of summer into fall.


“Our groom, Kory, loves greenery, and his sweet bride, Katie, happily obliged. From there came the idea to use watercolor as a primary motif," says Aleah and Nick Valley of Valley & Company Events. “We focused on shades of emerald, navy and sky blue splashed with gold. Momental Designs’ watercolor designs and decor added an extra dose of wedding magic."
