Five Wedding Color Palettes We Loved In 2023

When creating each palette it takes a mix of the client's vision and our own to perfect the art. The couple shares their color palette and with that info we provide our expertise on seasonal florals from our farm. An arrangement is made taking into consideration size, texture, quantity, and color. Below are five color palettes that came together beautifully; complementing all aspects of each wedding from attire to overall venues.


Bright Pinks & Peach

Bright colors are not always the go to for brides however, this bride had a stunning vision. Keeping with the fun, saturated theme; the venue itself and beautifully laced dress added texture and dimension bringing this couple's special day to life.

Dahlias, celosia, stock and eucalyptus, all grown here at Sterling Fower Farm LLC, contributed to the beauty of these flower arrangements. This wedding took place in early October.

Venue: The Barn at Wesleyan Hills, Middletown, CT


Blush Pink and White

A softer palette is perfect when complimenting a bright dress. It creates the perfect combination of colors making for a truly elegant theme.

These bouquets included eucalyptus, dahlias, ranunculus and snapdragons that we grew.

Venue: Maneeley's Grand Lodge, Windsor, CT


Burgundy and Peach

This color palette is absolutley perfect for a fall wedding. We loved working with the amber glass bud vases in particular; they truly made the flowers pop. In addition, the elegant deep green dresses really made the burgundy colors shine.

This September wedding was done entirely with our Connecticut locally grown flowers. We used dahlias, zinnias, amaranth, eucalyptus, celosia and garlic chives to bring in lots of color and texture.

Venue: The Lace Factory, Deep River, CT


Yellow and Blue

This color palette is one of our more unique creations and it was show stopping. The combination of blue and yellow is not as often selected as other, more commonly used palettes however, it turned out to be a stunning combination; tying in the navy tuxes with the hints of blues. We loved how the bright colors of this late August wedding spoke to simple summer fun.

These flower arrangements featured sunflowers, marigolds, dahlias, delphiniums, bachelor buttons and eucalyptus. The muted color tones of the "queeny" series zinnias, which tend to feature hints of pale lime green, helped tie together the yellows and blues. We're proud to say that these are all our own locally grown Connecticut wedding flowers.

Venue: The Pavilion on Crystal Lake, Middletown, CT


Purple, White and Greenery

A patterned dress can be nicely complimented by a simple color scheme. Combining purple and white with greenery brought together every aspect of this rustic wedding in particular the barn, and woodsy setting. Pastels are very classic for spring and we loved how the flowers brought in pops of bright purple to liven things up a bit. This couple began planning their flowers with us in May 2021 for their May 2023 wedding, giving us tons of time to order custom seeds, bulbs and corms just for them.

Our farm grown flowers included ranunculus, snapdragons, dahlias, agrostemma, alliums, statice and dahlias.

Venue: Wright's Mill Farm


We hope you enjoyed seeing some of our favorite color combinations from 2023. It was very hard to choose just a few weddings to feature when all of the couples we work with are so creative and thoughtful in planning the look and feel of their weddings.
