When it comes to creating an elegant wedding color palette, few combinations can surpass the enchanting blend of verdant green, rich gold, and pure white hues. This delightful mix effortlessly captures elegance, glamour, and the inherent beauty of nature, making it an exquisite choice for couples seeking a timeless celebration.
As you enter the Grand Ballroom of Crimson Hotel Alabang you’ll be greeted by an awe-inspiring sight: an arch adorned with luxuriant greenery garlands and delicate white pearl roses. This classic and timeless backdrop evokes a deep appreciation for nature, appealing to couples with a love for gardens and all things beautiful.
A Harmonious Blend of Earthly Connection and Fresh Vibes
Adding an extra touch of nature’s charm to the botanical scenery was the talented MC Pascual. Using garlands, Pascual expertly connected the setting to the earth, infusing the atmosphere with a fresh and invigorating vibe that symbolizes new beginnings. The addition of gold metal chandeliers and wooden chairs by Bella Banquets brought forth an element of glamour and luxury. Complementing the green and gold tones, the pastel brown tablecloth and pristine white roses provided a clean and crisp canvas, allowing the colors to shine in all their splendor.
“This setup was the perfect place to bring this mystical Italian inspired wedding to life. The architecture of the venue complimented the lush greenery with an assortment of white flowers. The overall vibe, you would think you were looking at a modern wedding day in the wine country of Tuscany. Beautiful white tulips embellished the reception, resembling the sweethearts’ unity, purity, and love for one another”, shares Pascual.
Gold-lined white plates by Shop Rent Gala exuded sophistication, perfectly harmonizing with the bouquets of roses adorning each table. The ambiance was further elevated by vintage candle holders, housing white candles that cast a gentle glow, adding warmth and intimacy to the surroundings.
