Pastel wedding palettes are exceptionally popular these days, however, in choosing a look that's trendy, it's also possible to overdo it and forgo timeless elegance in exchange for fads that will eventually appear dated and perhaps cheesy. Fortunately, Kurtis + Danielle's Vancouver Island wedding avoids any hint of cheese and instead evokes a classic look using contemporary elements. By opting for muted pastels (nude bridesmaid dresses and the most subtle peach florals), subtle undertones of gold, and strong contrasts (a black suit for Kurtis, and dramatic dark locks and lashes for Danielle) the look is timeless and refined without appearing stiff and formal--perfect for a summer wedding on the West Coast.
