For Niamh, who grew up in and around vineyards, her wedding reception would be a celebration of the look and feel of wineries. For her Los Gatos Mountains reception at a winery, we created a stationery suite, including menus, place cards, table numbers and signage, inspired by the elegance of wine labels.

{Designer Secret} A winery look doesn’t necessarily need grapes. Instead think deep rich colors, like burgundy, chocolate brown and eggplant purple. Think traditional shapes and classic Italian or French patterns and prints.

For Niamh’s wine label inspired reception design, we used classic shapes and a monogram.

Even though purple seems like the perfect color for a winery wedding, Niamh’s color palette actually started with green.

“You can ask anyone who knows me what my favorite color is, and it is usually unanimous that “GREEN” is the first thing they say,” Niamh says. “Maybe because of my pride with my Irish heritage, or the fact I think it looks good on me! But the idea of really pale shades of green would have just washed my fair skinned bridesmaids out.”

“So I went to Home Depot and took a look at different shades of green, and what colors went well, and I loved the deepness of the purple, and the fun of the lime green! And it works well with the winery theme because of the purple grapes and green leaves.”

“And I really didn’t want a formal wedding, I wanted a wedding that reflect the fun couple Mike and I are,” Niamh says. “And I think these colors really helped convey how much fun our wedding day will be!”

“My bridesmaid dresses are from BHDLN, and we found the only purple dress at the time, and my bridesmaids loved it, couldn’t argue with that! My favors are in little lime green boxes, tied with a deep purple ribbon, and I really brought the colors through the linens and napkins, helping the flowers to pop! “

“For my flowers I really wanted a clean modern feel, no roses, nothing traditional, and I think my florist and I really wanted to focus on deep plum purples in orchids, hydrangeas, and in greens, succulents, kale, and even some fruit and vegetables.”

When you are planning your wedding colors, Niamh suggests remembering who you are and exploring.

“My advice would be figure out what type of event you are doing, see what would look nice at the venue, and find fun colors,” Niamh suggests. “Look in magazines, go to your local paint store and look at paint chips, they really do have every color, make them contrast. And most importantly, pick something that represents how you are as a couple.”
