From the rolling hills of Irvine to the awe-inspiring beaches along the Pacific, this county offers a variety of idyllic settings for you to explore. Here are five reasons why you should consider taking your celebrations to Orange County:

Here are some beautiful Orange County venues hand-picked by our experts at Wedgewood Weddings:

When incorporating a vibrant color palette into your wedding, always keep in mind the importance of balance. For instance, if you’re using a bright statement color as an accent, try to use softer and more muted tones in other areas. This will create a visually pleasing look that is both colorful and tasteful.
You can also bring in a variety of textures, such as faux fur throws for lounge areas or velvet table runners, to add depth and interest to your aesthetic. Adding unique or unexpected elements is a great way to make your wedding memorable and fun. In addition, use white or ivory as a neutral base color for linens, so that your vibrant colors will stand out and really pop.
