Spring Fling: Coral & Mint Wedding Colors
Melding a modern aesthetic with vintage decor and romantic personal touches is Kristeen LaBrot Events’ signature style. “I really love getting to know my couples,” says LaBrot. “I take notes of what some people may consider random—movies they saw over the weekend, restaurants they’ve tried. Even if it’s not wedding related, it may inspire me at a later time.”
Such details make wedding planning an art, and choosing the perfect palette is one of the first steps in bringing together the vision. “Coral and mint is soft and delicate without being overly feminine,” LaBrot explains. This lovely color combo is easy to make sing—from brightly hued shoes to the vibrant bouquet. LaBrot paired the muted orange and green hues with metallic gold for a subtle touch of glamour.
