Meet The Romantic Marsala Wedding Color Palette

Like the warm, rustic beauty of boundless Tuscan vineyards bathed in golden sunshine, our romantic marsala color palette infuses an ambiance of eternal passion and romance throughout your wedding day.

Anchored around the earthy red-brown depth of marsala-hued flowers like roses, peonies, and dahlias, the palette takes shape with the mystery and dark romance of deep berry pink and black. Blush wedding flowers create grounding contrast, and accents of gold, white, and sage add delicate balance.

Combined together, these colors embody warmth, passion, and timeless beauty with a refined, classic style–just like you.

Setting the Scene for Your Romantic Marsala Wedding

Follow us on a journey through your romantic fall nuptials in a stately countryside villa. With unmatched beauty as far as the eye can see, the exquisite decor adds refined elegance with help from Ling’s Romantic Marsala color collection.

Surrounded by peaceful countryside breezes whistling through goldenrod fields and gentle pastures, you arrive at a grand drive leading up the hill to your wedding location. Mature trees planted when the home was built generations ago surround the estate. A vineyard meanders down a hillside beside the villa, the grapes plump and shining in the morning sun like rubies.

The main house has all the vintage charm of majestic manors from ages past. Hand carved doors, chiseled stonework, gilded mirrors, and ornate wallpapers carry a patina that comes with graceful aging in a home well loved.

Framing the entryway to the house are tall, arching installations with marsala and blush wedding flowers, greenery, grapes, and branches–an extravagant, welcoming addition to the already impressive villa.

You take a walk through the garden where your wedding ceremony will take place later in the day. Fenced by tall, ageless Italian cypress trees, the garden is bursting with early autumn color–especially the roses and hydrangeas.

The sun shines bright in the cloudless sky, and a cool and gentle breeze blows through the temperate air. It’s the perfect day.

A Warm Marsala Welcome For Guests
