Golden Autumn Weddings

Everything glows in the golden light of autumn sunshine. If you’re planning a fall wedding, consider choosing a deep yellow like goldenrod, marigold or mustard as part of your color palette.

One beautiful way to work with a strong, striking shade is to use unusual blossoms while keeping the color scheme very simple. In this wedding, we used an abundance of bright yellow orchids for the bridesmaids’ bouquets, miniature yellow calla lilies for the groomsmen, and for the adorable flower girl, we made a perfectly round bouquet of yellow mums. Each mum held a tiny pearl in its center. For the bride, we stuck to white. Read More

Bridesmaids 2.0

With the focus on the vintage-look, pink has really made a comeback as true sophisticated color that can be perfect for weddings.


Now what if you wanted to do a more traditional and fancy wedding? Or, what if you wanted to incorporate brighter or richer hues of pink than those that are the main-stay of the vintage look? There are ways to do this without succumbing to the days of Molly Ringwald Fashion Pictures Photos(unless you would want that look), or with your flower girls and bridesmaids looking they are wearing the same outfits designed for a preschool tea-party (unless you would want that look as well- no judgements here).
