Can we say double the wedding inspiration? For the first time ever this year, PANTONE Color Institute® unveiled a blend of two shades as the 2016 Color of the Year – and with spring’s arrival, we can’t wait to see these pretty pastels in full bloom across our historic Charleston venues.

Rose Quartz is a blush pink hue that’s soft, feminine and composed, while the tranquil blue Serenity is as cool, breezy and relaxed as it sounds.

Our PPHG event experts consider both shades on their own a perfect “new neutral” to pair with any range of colors, but it’s the combination of the two that PANTONE® says makes this year’s palette distinctive:

“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”

And what couple wouldn’t mind a little extra calm on the big day?

Warm up your winter white with these soft, airy and elegant hues, inspired by a few of our favorite real weddings from Patrick Properties.
