Taking a Break

Hi Ladies-

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days but I will be taking a break from blogging for awhile.  I am just way too busy with work, but I'm sure I'll be back when things slow down!

Inspiration 247: Golden Sunshine

I have something bright and cheery to share with you today!  Yellow and gold is the perfect color palette for a sunny summer day.  I can see this rich color palette working beautifully at an elegant beach wedding.  And the golden raspberries on the cake are a fun touch to add a touch of the color palette to your cake!

Engagement Inspiration: Bettianne & Nate's Cute Picnic Session

You probably know (if you read my blog regularly) that I love anything picnic themed and this engagement shoot is no exception!  Bettianne and Nate brought along a ton of great props that really made their engagement pictures super awesome.  Of course they are a super cute couple too!

Theme Thursday 44: Preppy Salmon

Loving these groomsmen in their salmon pants, so preppy!  Monograms also give off that preppy feel to me, as well as a simple but sophisticated short sleeved wedding gown.

Inspiration 246: Apricot, Pretty Pink and Milk Glass

Milk glass is just so unique and pretty!  In this board I paired it along side a cheery palette of both soft and bright apricot and a soft honeysuckle pink.

Inspiration 245: French Blue & Blush English Countryside

Last week seemed to be all about bright colors, this week I'm on pastels!  This board was requested by a bride who is planning a rustic wedding in Texas with a English countryside feel since both her fiance and her are English.  Her color palette is French blue and blush which I think works perfectly with the feel she is going for!

Monday Funday 25: Neapolitan Ice Cream

This board was inspired by the colors of Neapolitan ice cream!  After spotting this beautiful and delicious looking cake I ran with the color scheme to create a fun board using pink and chocolate brown.

Real Wedding: Meghan & Jeff's Cheery Wedding

I love the bouquets in this wedding!  Meghan used pink, orange, yellow and green for her color palette and each of her nine bridesmaid carried a bouquet of a single color of roses and gerbera daisies.  Many congratulations to Meghan and Jeff!

This is what Meghan had to say about her big day:
"Of course, we used the wonderful Cordele Photography to capture our big day.  We chose gerbera daisies and roses in a mix of orange, hot pink, and yellow.  Each of my nine bridesmaids actually had a different color (one of the three-yellow, pink, or orange), which was unique and a great idea by my florist (we used Harry Quints Floral Bouquet).  The girls' dresses were a lime green color and our cake had a similar color green ribbon around each layer with the mix of color flowers at the top.  My dress, as well as the bridesmaid dresses, were from J. Crew.  Everything seemed affordable and most of the choices we made were cost-friendly.  We were married at a parish in Belmont, where I grew up, and our reception was at the Renaissance Hotel in South Boston.  While the weather was HOT that day, the breeze by the water was beautiful.  One other accent that was unique to us was our choice of favors.  We chose to donate money to three charities important to us, and we put a frame on each table indicating the three foundations for people to be aware of.  The day was an exceptionally fun milestone for me and my husband-we have incredible memories of family and friends from last summer's big event, and still talk about how smooth the day went for us overall.  We were very lucky."

Real Wedding: Elizabeth & Chris's Backyard Wedding

Elizabeth & Chris had a lovely backyard wedding in Massachusetts last September.  I love how they incorporated just a few colors into their wedding party and then brightened up the reception but adding a few hints of other colors in.  And the table numbers were Ben & Jerry ice cream flavors, how cute!
