Monochromatic Florals & Chic Bridal Fashion at Imperial House in Park City
Tonal hues create a fresh palette for modern celebrations.
“Yellow is so underused in wedding flowers, and it’s such a shame!” says Ashley Beyer of Tinge. We couldn’t agree more; the sunny hue is cheerful and optimistic, and it represents friendship and loyalty—a fitting wedding hue. Beyer chose yellow as her own floral palette when she tied the knot with her husband, Curtis. She rekindled her love affair with yellow to create this bouquet and coordinating arrangement (pictured above and below). She kept the palette muted and sophisticated by using buttery shades and earthy, mustard tones rather than saturated, primary ones. She also incorporated white blooms with yellow centers for a pop of color and interest.

MADE YOU BLUSH
Call it blush, pale, or millennial pink—the color is popular for modern celebrations, and for good reason: the hue imbues a sense of style, grace, and romance. Pamelyn Covey of Sage Floral used subtle pink and cream tones to create this spring-like bouquet and arrangement. Taking advantage of nature’s bounty, she plucked some of the blooms straight from her own garden; the stems include flowering crab apple branches, bare magnolia branches, tulips, ranunculus, anemone clematis vine, garden roses, lilac, astilbe, and sweet pea. “I wanted the arrangement to look like a little garden patch that was bursting with new life,” she says. “Flowering clematis vines wrap around budding magnolia branches, tulips tumble over the vessel’s edge, and ranunculus reach up to catch the last rays of sunshine.”

CORAL ME MINE
Bold, warm colors such as coral are associated with energy, vivacity, passion, and optimism. Usher these same qualities into your marriage by incorporating coral tones throughout your big day. Jessica St. Thomas of St. Thomas Floral Design chose a coral palette as the inspiration for this sophisticated bouquet and arrangement. “I wanted to stay within the palette as much as possible while exploring different options and hues through texture,” she explains. “I chose blooms with double petals, different shapes, and unique centers.” Those stems include coral charm peonies; light peach sweet peas; Juliet garden roses; hyacinth; ranunculus; nandina; parrot tulips; double tulips and lisianthus; and burnt sienna dogwood and heuchera leaves (also known as coral bells).

Lavender represents enchantment, while purple represents royalty—what better colors to create a magical wedding day? Kati Wagner of Tulips & Thyme employed the power of purple and a variety of seasonal stems to create this elegant, lilac-hued bouquet and arrangement. Her regal ingredients include picotee hellebores, clematis, bicolor columbine, sweet pea, dusty miller, garden roses, and Dutch double tulips. “These serene, ultra-femme hues can be paired with crisp whites for a modernized look, gold for a formal fête, or wood and clay vessels for an earthy feel, perfect for rustic and outdoor soirées,” says Wagner. “Lilac can also be an ideal addition to a neutral palette for a refreshing alternative to blush.”
