The Difference Color Can Make
Lots of wedding porn/blogs start with an inspiration board - what do you like or what's your vision. Those boards look like something out of Martha Stewart - kinda not the feel we're looking at. Cubes proposed for the first time at Spurious Causality and we explored the Neverwas Haul shortly after. That's driven/influenced the overall feel for us - hence one of the reasons we chose Swedish American Hall in SF (built in the early 1900s).

We had our cake tasting last night and that got me thinking about whether hydrangeas or dahlias or a combination of the flowers (both are in-season in October) would go best with our cake choice (the raspberry frosting is pink/rose colored).

Personally, I like the contrast lent by having a combination of flowers. The cake with raspberry frosting and a mix of red/pink/blue/bluish-purple flowers looks great. The Swedish American hall has warm tones inside, if I'm remembering correctly, and autumn is full of those warm reddish tones. So, the contrast of blue touches here and there is super appealing. Like peeks of that brilliant blue sky outside. And the sky is always brilliant blue in October around here.

Thank you for your feedback! Cubes and I really appreciate it. We're leaning towards the combination of dahlias and hydrangeas as we have more flexibility. The hall where everyone will gather after the ceremony before dinner looks out onto market and it'll be early enough with Daylight Savings that everyone will be able to enjoy the beautiful skies.
