Beautifully Blue

When Pantone announced “Ultra Violet” as the color of the year, we weren’t quite sure if we would see it make an appearance. An illustrious and vibrant purple color, while we can certainly appreciate its beauty, blue seemed to steal the show when it came to Shadow Creek weddings.

There are not a lot of color palettes that we don’t appreciate. In fact, we are hard-pressed to think of any color that we haven’t loved seeing this past year, but we keep returning to blue as one of our favorites. What continues to amaze us are the many different ways this color can be seamlessly incorporated into event design. We have seen it in linens, bridesmaid dresses, centerpieces, glassware, escort card displays, suits, and a number of other ways that have brought blue wedding designs to life. There are endless options when it comes to blue, sometimes it’s more gray, sometimes more navy, but one thing is for sure, every color in between is always beautiful!

Take a look below at some of our favorite ways we’ve seen blue used in weddings this year!
