Sky Blue and Gold Velvet – California Summer Wedding Ideas

California is called the Golden State for good reason – in the summer, the rolling hills are covered with dry grass that is burnished the color of gold velvet under a clear blue sky. As our state gets drier and drier, I wanted to find a way to celebrate that stark beauty while keeping in mind the importance of conserving water and helping California get through the drought.

Sky Blue and Gold Velvet - California Summer Wedding Inspiration

This California summer wedding inspiration brings in that sky blue and gold velvet palette with rich, natural texture. The setting itself – a ranch or private estate overlooking the expanse of rolling hills – is one of the most important elements. The wild beauty of the surroundings sets the stage for an elegantly rustic wedding.

Looking for drought-friendly ways to plan your wedding? Select a venue that is making water-conservation their priority to encourage small businesses to do their part. Limit florals in your decor or work in drought resistant decor like succulents and air plants. Work with a caterer that is local, sustainable, and eco-friendly to ensure that your wedding feast is waste-free.
