Shades of Blue meet Shades of Gold and Brown

October 25, 2010

{Slate Blue, Powder Blue, Gold, Latte, Chocolate Brown & Ivory}

Shades of blue combined with gold and shades of brown really makes for a pretty palette. Soft, yet not too feminine. This palette strikes me as perfect for any season really. Admittedly, I started this one out with Winter or Fall in mind, but I can definitely see this being a pretty way to use blue in the Spring or Summer as well. I love the simplistic nature of the centerpiece design, the handcrafted jewelry, and that gorgeous paisley necktie for the groomsmen. Oh, and who isn't loving that handcrafted 'thank you' sign? It's so fun and creates a perfect photo opportunity! What a perfect photo to include in thank you notes!

{Happy Harvest}: Chocolate Brown, Burnt Orange & Ivory

October 19, 2010

{Chocolate Brown, Burnt Orange & Ivory}

One of my favorite Fall color combinations has always been burnt orange, chocolate brown and ivory. Maybe it's because these colors just seem to really compliment one another, especially during this season. As most of you all know, I myself had a Fall wedding! I love it when a wedding strikes a balance between elegance and fun. I think there are so many ways to achieve this in a Fall wedding. For this wedding, I combined the idea of having a wedding at a pumpkin patch up in the mountains with a reception to follow in a nearby rustic barn. I love the idea of using alternative venue options for Fall! Farms, barns, any rustic setting really. Some of the ideas that I'm loving for this wedding are having the guys wear brown converse shoes and the ladies wear orange flats! Oh, and who doesn't like the looks of that casual buffet? I also really love those adorable flower girl dresses! {continued...}

{Give Thanks}: A Palette of Latte, Chocolate Brown, Burnt Orange & Ivory

October 15, 2010

{Latte, Chocolate Brown, Burnt Orange, Ivory}

Fall is a great time to spend a little extra time with those closest to your heart. Thanksgiving is a time to remember the special people in your lives and to offer thanks for all that you've been blessed with. I love the idea of finding and taking wedding inspiration from seasons and holidays. And what better holiday to take a little inspiration from than Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving decor typically has such a warm and cozy palette. I love blending latte, chocolate brown a hint of burnt orange and a touch of ivory. I think that this palette has such a warm yet rustic feel to it. Some of the ideas I'm loving include the gorgeous place setting, the festive Fall wreath displayed in front of the buffet and the beautiful texture that letterpress so effortlessly communicates. Simple, romantic, and timeless, this palette is perfect for any bride who is wanting to make a lasting impression on her guests! Oh, and who isn't loving the idea of serving up good old fashioned pie in lieu of wedding cake?

{A Spooky Soiree}: Orange, Black and White

October 11, 2010

{Orange, Black & White}

When I received the request to put together some Halloween Inspiration, I have to admit that I was excited! Because who doesn't love Halloween? Halloween for me, brings back so many memories... I remember the feeling of trying to come up with the most creative costume each year... I remember running around my old neighborhood door to door with childhood friends, and most of all I remember coming home with a pillowcase full chocolate & sugary goodness! {continued...}

This board is for all of you who are getting married this Halloween! In my design, I incorporated all of the fun Halloween motifts. Starting out, I knew I wanted the board to feel fun & festive but at the same I wanted there to be an element of sophistication. Some of my favorite ideas in this board include the creative dessert displays by Williams-Sonoma! Peanut butter balls, caramel apples & Halloween treats never looked so good! In addition, I really love that spooky centerpiece idea! Oh, and check out vintage looking bridal gown!

{Apple Orchard 'I Do's'}: Apple, Burlap, Wheat & White

October 5, 2010

{Apple Red, Burlap, Wheat & White}

Red is a color that you definitely expect to see at a Winter wedding...but what about using the color red in a Fall wedding? I happen to think that pairing red with a soft and natural color like latte makes for a truly special palette. I love the idea of using this palette for a Fall wedding out on the farm, or better yet an apple picking farm! I've always loved the idea of saying 'i do' in an apple orchard. {continued...}

Bridal Party Attire & Apples in Burlap

I think the idea of sending guests home with burlap sacks full of apples with an apple pie recipe attached is just so charming or what about jars of apple jelly? Oh and who does not love the idea of adding a touch of wheat into bouquets, centerpieces or even place settings? Such simple yet charming ideas! So what do you think about the idea of using red for a Fall wedding?

{A Warm & Cozy Wedding}: Chocolate Brown, Latte & Ivory

October 2, 2010

{Chocolate Brown, Latte & Ivory}

I'm really loving this warm and cozy palette. Chocolate brown and latte go hand in hand and well...there is just something so timeless about this wouldn't you agree? It's so perfect for Winter too. Winter is a great time for using lots of texture. I love the textures found on the bride's coat, the texture of the wood door that is being used to hold old rustic keys for an escort card display and who could resist the texture of a fluffy marshmallow? Cozy, romantic and definitely elegant too, this palette would also be stunning in the Fall. I'm loving how natural this palette feels. Far from being considered modern, this palette takes you back to a simpler time...a time where romance is alive and tradition still lives.

So what do you think? Are you loving this warm and rich blend of colors? I happen to think it's the perfect palette for either Winter or Fall. It's colors like these that make me feel all kinds of cozy. Kind of makes me want to curl up by the fire and drink a latte!
