Make this classic color combo entirely your own.
When it comes to planning a wedding, there's a tendency to lean towards timeless, classic design elements. After all, you want to love your ceremony and reception photos forever. But choosing a standard color palette and design scheme can leave a couple feeling somewhat uninspired. So what are you to do? That's where Chris Hessney, owner and designer of Hessney & Co., and planner Laura Remmert of Laura Remmert Events come in handy.
Hessney and Remmert took a popular wedding color palette—navy and white—and reimagined it for today's modern couple. With calligraphed details from Sara at Ink Revival, place settings from The Tabletop Company, rentals from Party Rental LTD., and one stunning wedding dress from Samuelle Couture and Spina Bride, the finished look is equal parts classic and new.
"We wanted to move away from the classic, bold navy and white, nautical colors if you will, and add modern plates and flatware with peach blooms to complement the color palette," Hessney says. For Remmert, designing this tablescape meant thinking about a couple that's one part city chic and one part relaxed country. "It's for the city girl who loves country weekends," she adds.
The designers add that this look is at its dreamiest for a late summer or early fall wedding, but it could easily be transitioned to work any time of the year by tweaking the floral color palette and adding in-season accents.

A Place at the Table
Antique flower frogs were used to hold place cards steady at this outdoor reception. Their brassy hue paired perfectly with the gilded ink used on each card.
Dried hydrangeas, greenery, and grass were tied together with trailing black ribbon. The loose, textural bouquet was an unexpected finishing touch for the bride's feminine look.
