We had two events for our wedding celebration: an open house in California and then the actual wedding in Costa Rica. Jason and I chose coral and purple as our colors- but we weren't really strict with it, we also threw in other colors that went well with those two colors.

For the open house, I chose coral, purple and aqua for the decor:

Then for the wedding, we told our wedding coordinator and florist that we wanted coral and purple to be the central colors and they could throw in any other colors they thought looked good. And they did an amazing job!:

The centerpieces
The florist was even able to use the banners from the open house
These lined the path to the beach

This is the overhang thing (what are they called??!) that we got married under.

And this is my bouquet. I let my florist handle all the details of it and she did an awesome job. I loved it.
