Kathleen and Tyson in Peoria, IL

The couple's wedding featured a bold color scheme: "We wanted red, and lots of it," says Kathleen. She carried a bouquet of deep red roses designed by Enchanted Florist & Boutique in Peoria. Her 10 bridesmaids wore red satin dresses with black sashes by Badgley Mischka, also from Ultimate Bride. They accessorized with black satin opera gloves and carried nosegays comprised of red blooms. The couple worked with wedding planner Beth Maxwell of Save the Date to incorporate crimson into all aspects of the wedding. "We had a blast coming up with ways to use the color to create a cohesive look," Kathleen says. "Even the catering staff wore red tux shirts."
