A Pigeon Themed Wedding!

Karrie from Posh-Paperie sent me some details from an adorable wedding she worked on. I’ve seen lots of bird themed weddings, but never pigeon! Did you know pigeons mate for life? What a perfect theme for a wedding. The wedding took place at the Darlington House in La Jolla, California with a color palette that included all shades of blue (primarily navy) with pops of red as bright, cheerful accents. With a vintage feel, the stationery by Posh-Paperie set the tone for the style of the entire event. Planning was done by Carter + Cook Event Co. and the photography was by Sean Walker Photography (with the exception of the very last photo of the couple by Krystal Adele ). Their event was elegant, but also fun…complete with a delectable dessert bar (cupcakes by Cupcakes Squared), a “DIY” vintage polaroid photo booth, and “Izze” sodas in every color of the rainbow.
