{A Seaside Wedding}: A Palette of Blue & Yellow

July 27, 2010

{Navy Blue, Blue & Yellow}

Lately I've really been loving the color navy blue. Especially when paired with the color yellow. For this wedding, I wanted to bring to life the idea of a wedding by the sea, one that spoke to sort of a preppy nautical theme. I imagined this wedding & reception would take place on the beach. Fun patterns of stripes and polka dots really make this look pop while creative table settings & bright bold color really make this wedding stand out as unique.

I absolutely love the idea of incorporating subtle nautical symbolism and who doesn't love the looks of that charming little seaside chapel? As the wedding came to an end, the couple took to the sea on a sailboat that had a sign that read "and they lived happily ever after"

{Spring Fever}: A Palette of Chartreuse, Chocolate Brown & Ivory

July 25, 2010

{Chartreuse, Chocolate Brown & Ivory}

When trying to figure out the perfect palette for her wedding, Alaina had just one request... That the main color be chartreuse! She wrote to me about her plans, her love for the color and most importantly the way she wanted her wedding to look and feel! She told me she wanted her personality to shine through and that she wanted the overall wedding to feel sweet, quaint and fun all at the same time! So off to the drawing board I went..and here you have it... a palette of chartreuse, chocolate brown, and ivory! I don't know about you, but I just love how these colors play off of one another. Plus, who doesn't love polka dots? It's fun patterns like these that will make your wedding stand out as unique. We paired table decor from our friends over at Object Spendlor with invitations by Wedding Paper Divas. Throw in chocolate brown bridesmaids dresses and handcrafted accessories & you've got the makings of a charming affair!

So how are you feeling about this chartreuse palette? I am admittedly a tad smitten with this look! Maybe it's the way these colors perfectly compliment one another! Maybe it's the polka dots...Whatever it is, I seriously heart this! Any brides-to-be out there who are considering chartreuse? Do tell! xo

{Coral, Taupe, Ivory & Gold }

Who says you can't have your wedding feel both formal and fun all at the same time? Who says that modern design can't feel elegant and romantic? On a day when memories are most precious, this is a time to break outside the box and stop playing it so safe when it comes to decor and color! Having a wedding ocean side? Throw that expected palette of blue & seashells display to the curb and try stepping into a palette of coral, taupe & gold.

{Tropical Escape}: A Palette of Green + Yellow with a Touch of Burnt Orange

July 14, 2010

{Green, Yellow & Orange}

Today's palette is all about breaking out of the box and not being afraid to use those bold and vibrant colors! For this wedding, I wanted to create a color palette that would work perfectly for a bride who invisioned a unique and modern look for her wedding day. In her emails to me she spoke about how excited she was to gather her friends and family and how she so looked forward to creating an outdoor space that had both a tropical and sort of a safari feel. A romantic soft palette was not what she was hoping for. She spoke about wanting to see things pop! So off to the drawing board I went... and here you have it! A wedding that exudes modernity and fun at the same time all while keeping things looking very polished. {continued...}

There is something so FUN about this palette. Any brides-to-be out there who are considering these daring colors? Or maybe you're thinking about using a emerald green color as your primary color?

{Happy 4th of July}: A Palette of Red, White & Blue

July 2, 2010

{Red & Blue}

Happy 4th of July weekend! I hope you all enjoy these red, white & blue inspiration boards that I put together! I don't know about you, but these colors instantly get me feeling patriotic! These images stir up such warm and fuzzy memories for me. What's not to love about the 4th of July? I just love grilling out with friends and family...and then making our way to the town square to see the parade. And then when night falls... taking in all of the colors from the fireworks display. It's definitely one of my favorite holidays!

I hope you all have a great & safe 4th of July weekend and that you find something fun to get into!
