Can you tell that I'm slightly obsessed with the color yellow? Yep, it's true. Okay perhaps its more than slightly obsessed. The truth is that I absolutely love yellow. It's so loud and in your face. Yellow is the color the makes me the happiest. And I just love all of the fun ways you can infuse yellow into your big day.

The bouquets that I incorporated into this board have to be one of the prettiest I've seen. I just love the soft feel of the composition. And don't you just love that chapel!

Inspiration Board # 269: Chocolate + Cream

June 25, 2009

{Chocolate Brown, Ivory + White}

Chocolate brown and ivory are two colors that marry so effortlessly won't you agree? I just love the simplicity they exude when paired with one another not to mention their richness. Looking for the perfect palette? Perhaps you should consider these colors! Natalie wrote to me and told me all about the rustic mountain wedding she was planning for next fall. Finding the perfect palette was easy for her she said. But figuring out a way to infuse her colors into their big day? This proved to be a bit more of a challenge for her. {continued...}

In my design, ladies wore chocolate brown chiffon gowns and carried bouquets of ivory blooms. I just love how the use of just one flower in bouquets makes for such a bold statement. To coordinate, the bride wore a single flower in her hair. This came across as both unique and romantic! The most special part of this board very well might be the lovely wooden structure that the two married beneathe! I just love the rustic simple feel that this has! Guests left this with specialty cupcakes & with memories that would last a lifetime!

{Red, Cranberry, & Plum}

Cranberry & plum are simply two colors that I would never have expected to like together. To my surprise, they really are a fun combination! That's why when I got the request to pair these two together again, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to get to work. The bride wrote to me and told me all about the summer farmhouse wedding she was planning. Charming details like a signature cranberry cocktail set the tone for this casual and fun affair. Ladies wore tea length cranberry dresses while groomsmen were styled to coordinate in purple gingham shirts. {continued...}

{Sunflower Love}: Chocolate Brown & Marigold

{Chocolate Brown & Marigold}

Chocolate brown & marigold really are gorgeous colors together. I just love the way they balance each other out. Marigold is bright & cheery while chocolate brown has a rustic feel about it. In my design, ladies wore chocolate dresses and yellow scarves. Perfect for a fall wedding, the bride carried a bouquet of sunflowers. Sunflowers were also used in centerpieces which came across as charming and fun. {continued...}

The ceremony took place in a mountain top log cabin chapel which was both rustic and very fitting for the fall. Groomsmen were dressed in chocolate brown tuxedos and wore striped ties which made the guys look both handsome and fun. In lieu of the traditional wedding cake, the newlyweds served apple pie and ice cream. Guests went home with jars of homemade honey and a sweet thank you from the bride & groom.
