{Rustic Romance}: Dusty Rose, Chocolate, Taupe, Camel + White

{Dusty Rose, Chocolate, Taupe, Camel + White}

Are you loving this deep shade of pink as much as I am? I hope so! Because it's yet another new addition to our color palette. Say hello to dusty rose! It's a shade of pink that has cranberry and mauve undertones. It's also in the same family as fuchsia and coral. I absolutely love how it marries with these various colors including taupe and shades of brown. For this wedding I imagined a rustic locale, somewhere off the beaten path. Somewhere like a farm or a maybe even a vineyard perhaps. {continued...}

Details We Love
Invitation Suite by Martha Stewart + Newlyweds in Love!

I love the idea of having groomsmen wear suspenders. My husband and his friends wore suspenders and it made for some really fun vintage looking shots . Especially, since most guys want to take their coats off during their reception. For some reason I've always been drawn to this look. Perhaps it's because it reminds me of Jack from Titanic. And I L-O-V-E that movie. Oh, to be Kate Winslet! Yes, I'm that girl! I also can't go without mentioning that gorgeous wreath! I've always loved the idea of hanging double wreaths on church doors. Oh, and who isn't loving the bride pictured? She looks stunning! I love her hairstyle and I definitely think it's very fitting for this romantic rustic wedding.

This is a great color pallet for either summer or fall- here you can see the idea of vintage our country- but a great modern design would be brilliant!

LOVE the dusty rose. Could you do more palettes incorporating it? And is there anyway you can include links to the original images you use for the palettes? I love some of the individual images you use on the palettes that I would love to find where they're from.
