As you might remember, Cranberry made it to the top of my Top 10 Colors for Fall Weddings list this year. And I'm hoping you can see why? Rich, romantic, and absolutely elegant, this is the kind of color that I'm happy that we're starting to see more of. It's just got that 'wow' factor. And for that reason alone, I'm in love.

Attention Fall brides: Can we all just look at how amazing these orange tones look with these gray tones? Definitely a perfect palette. Definitely. The intensity of the orange is perfectly balanced by the coolness of the gray. Wouldn't you agree?

Are you a blue-lover at heart? Well, navy blue is a no brainer then. It's got that effortless sophistication thing down pat. Plus it's super easy to style since it's a very popular color when it comes to fashion and decor. Those bridesmaid dresses? I'm loving how they incorporated so many different looks!

Ever since Pantone announced emerald as their color of the year for 2013, I have not been able to get enough. I love emerald because it's just got that regal feel to it. Plus it's really fun to incorporate into art deco inspired looks too. Which is admittedly, one of my favorite design esthetics. 
   
So there you have it! Just a few of my all time favorite color palettes for Fall weddings! I hope you guys have a lovely day. I'm off to tackle my ever growing to-do list. This Fall has me busy, busy, busy. But I wouldn't have it any other way. 
But before I go, tell me which one of these colors are you liking best? I always like to hear your thoughts!

A Feathered Fête: Design by French Knot Studios

September 22, 2014
Today I have something really exciting to share with you guys! What's so exciting, you ask? Well, it's the start of a new series here on The Perfect Palette. And it's something that I think you're really going to like. 

Love styled shoots? I sure do! I think the reason I really like them is the fact that they really give us wedding pros the opportunity to get creative! For me, whenever I start to think about styling an event, it all starts with an inspiration board. Not only is it an really easy way to start to visualize your concept, but it also allows you to pull ideas together in a way that no other tool can, really.

And so this new series of mine is all about sharing the finished styled shoot along with the inspiration board that inspired it. Starting off with this fabulous, feathered fête designed and styled by my friends over at French Knot Studios and with gorgeous images by Rach Lea Photography.

With this inspiration board, you will see how French Knot Studios took this feathered concept and brought it to life. From this peachy-pink color palette with touches of bold black, to this wonderfully modern, chevron motif, it's easy to see what a wonderful job they did with this feather-inspired design of theirs.

Things to look out for: Polka dot linens, chevron tabletop decor, handmade chandeliers, pretty pink single tier wedding cake, and fancy feather details throughout.

French Knot Studios really did an amazing job with this! From this amazingly beautiful, ombré wedding gown, to this gorgeous invitation suite by Minted, it's easy to see that they really had a lot of fun with this! I'm obsessed with the polka dot linens an the feathered chandeliers. So much whimsy, so much creativity, such a fun use of color!

And can we all just take a second to look at these florals? Whoa. I don't know about you, but I'm about to go on a pin-fest with this one. So what do you think? Do you like seeing the inspiration board along with the final production? I, for one, really love seeing the behind the scenes sort of stuff and it's inspiring to see how they brought their ideas to life!
