navy blue, red, and gold wedding ideas

Red October Photography “This shoot shows a classic color combination but with a modern twist. The navy blue is accented with gold throughout this editorial, and while the flowers are a classic ‘wedding white,’ they are displayed in a new way using terrariums as well as vases of various heights. The pop of color from the pomegranates used as place cards brings a fun twist to the timeless look!”

I adore the menu card in that invitation suite. Take a look at it below another look at it – it’s such a creative way to present your options to your guests and it’s all done in the classic color palette of navy blue and gold, yet with lots of creative, modern wedding style!

The details in shoot are just gorgeous! The bride’s gown is demure while still being utterly stylish (the lace cover-up is removable – making it the perfect way to transition from a formal ceremony to a more laid-back reception!) and the rainy day adds an intimate coziness to the space. The tablescape is visually interesting and very unique for this type of classic setting. And don’t get me started on that fabulous cake; it’s such a perfect addition to the entire editorial and a definite centerpiece to the wedding.
