{Vintage Ice Rink}: Light Sage, Camel, Silver + White

November 8, 2011
{Light Sage, Camel, Silver + White}

Although I'll always be a big fan of bright and bold color, there's no denying the beauty of a sweet and subtle palette like this one. It's soft, it's understated and it's definitely all the things that Winter weddings are made of. A snowy landscape provides such a pretty backdrop for this nature inspired palette. I'm loving how peaceful this one feels. I think the idea of having a chapel wedding followed by a quaint reception of close friends and family sounds so nice. In terms of decor I'm picturing subtle nods to a bird theme. See the lovely pear presentation on that cake stand? I love how the pears are nestled in those little nests...

Details We Love
Snowy Chapel + Newlyweds

It's creative details like those that stand out to me as unique and beautiful. I love how this has a vintage feel to it, but at the same time it feels so absolutely timeless. It's classic beauty mixed with nature and all kinds of Wintery goodness. Don't you just want to jump inside this palette and make a snow angel or two? I sure do...

I surprisingly really like this winery and subdued wedding palette. Like you, I'm a fan of bright and bold, this actually could be something that works for me.
