Hello, inspiration! This styled shoot was featured recently on Every Last Detail and I am so excited to share the images of these beauties with you here as well .... the creativity by all involved is absolutely awe-inspiring, and there were so many beautiful details weaved into every piece. I tried hard to choose a favorite, but between the protea flowers or the stunning gown, the carefully hand-deckled edging included on the invitation or the delicate details incorporated into the cake design, I love every single detail.
A very popular color for weddings this year is Dusty Blue, and the number one question I receive after that is wondering if it should be paired with silver or gold. Although I believe a lot of that has to do with your personal preferences, I think there are some pretty substantial differences in the way the two metallics look with it, so today there are two inspiration boards for you to compare and choose your favorite!
Hi loves! Today I am thrilled to share details from this beautiful bohemian beach inspired wedding with you. You may recognize Sami and Drew from the previous post on their alternative guestbook Love Notes Wall that they incorporated into their wedding, but today I am sharing a bit more about their wedding, including their color palette as it is still such a beautiful combination together for so many beach weddings, especially here in Pensacola at Margaritaville and Landshark Landing! For Sami and Drew, I was both their wedding planner and designed all of the paper details, and we worked amazing as a team together. Our meetings were always filled with laughter and I think that so much of it has to do with the love that they have for each other, that they knew that at the end of the day, the most important part was that they got to marry each other and vow to spend the rest of their lives together. Because truly, that is all that matters.
Hey everyone, happy Monday! I had such an amazing weekend participating at the Bridal Show at the Pensacola Bay Center. The day before, I stopped by Target to pick up a copy of Weddingstar Magazine because a styled shoot that I was a part of last spring was published in it!! To say that I was excited was an understatement. There is something about seeing your work in print form that is absolutely exhilarating. They are sold at Target, Walgreens, and Barnes and Noble if you would like to pick up a copy of the newest edition!
One thing that I plan to do more of this year is share color palettes from real weddings and current designs I am working on for bespoke collections, so that it can help you to plan your wedding as well! The majority of palettes that I work with are not traditional - they have unique color combinations or elements that aren't expected, so I am really excited about this addition to the blog.
Oh my goodness, I am so excited to be sharing a few more details on this with you today! One of the things that will be changing for this blog this year is showing more of my current works in progress through inspiration boards with you, and this one below is one I'm currently designing paper details for. I'm already swooning! I am working with Shannon of Great Southern Weddings for her Bridal Workshop to design some paper details for a small group of brides on January 30th of this year. I don't want to give away too much yet, but if you are a local bride, this is not something you want to miss! Fiore of Pensacola and Aislinn Kate Photography will also be sharing floral and photography planning details, and Shannon has curated such an amazing event, so if you're engaged and interested, head to the link above for more information!
Hooray for Part Two of this Blog Post incorporating Pantone's Color of the Year for 2015, Marsala! When I was putting this grouping together and saw all of the different boards together, I knew that it would be better suited to be split into two different posts. So today, I'm bringing you four more ideas, that incorporate blues, pinks and greens into the marsala derived color inspiration. This color can be incorporated into so many hues - from the deeper reds to the rustier reds that I decided to design them with the deep burgundy and purplish elements that are in this same color family.
When I saw that Pantone had chosen their color of the year for 2015 to be Marsala, my mind instantly started swirling with ideas. There are SO many different color palettes that you can create using this color, and every single one of them screams romance. It may look like a bit of a rust red color, but I chose to use it as an inspirational color and design a few inspiration boards using the color hues in this color, incorporating the deep berry reds that are also in this color family, with burgundy, aubergine, maroons, and created a few different boards for you to use as inspiration for your wedding, if you'd like to incorporate this color!
