The only thing better than getting to be a bridesmaid in your friend’s wedding is when she welcomes you into the wedding design process and the two of you get to bring all of her dreams and visions to life. My dear friends Gabi and Tim got married in November, and it was one of the most colorful, vibrant days I’ve ever been a part of!

Everything about Gabi is colorful, from the way she styles her apartment, to the way she dresses, to her sparkling personality. When she and Tim moved to Atlanta recently, it seemed like a perfect fit for them. They blend so well into the vibrance of the city!

As soon as Gabi and Tim got engaged (okay, probably a little bit before that…), she and I started dreaming up ways to infuse their wedding day with their bright, fun personalities and styles. We dreamed up the perfect color palette of dusty pinks, marigold yellows, terra cotta, and accents of muted blue. The thoughtfully curated table settings, the custom leather escort cards, and of course the sunset-inspired bridesmaid dress palette were some of my absolute favorite elements of the day.

The only thing better? Seeing the smiles on Gabi’s and Tim’s faces throughout the entire wedding. Is it cheesy for me to say that? Sure, but it’s so, so true. Love you, Gabi + Tim! Cheers!
