Red and Aqua Weddings

Call it aqua, turquoise, or Tiffany blue.  Pairing this color with a bright red makes a color combination that can be fun and whimsical, or surprisingly elegant. 

 If you find other sites that show red and aqua weddings, email me at liza0828 at gmail dot com so that I can include them.  Also, if you use any of these photos, please give proper credit.  Click the link to go directly to the sites where I got the photos and inpsiration boards.  Enjoy!
