Hot (and Cool) Wedding Colors | Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year

By, January 12, 2016

Pantone 2016 Color of the YearAlong with the New Year comes the announcement of Pantone’s Color of the Year! For 2016, Pantone broke from tradition for the first time in history, and made not one but two selections: Rose Quartz and Serenity. These colors combine aspects of warm and cool tones, creating a perfect sense of fresh balance and calm. We decided to show how Pantone’s winners can add to the wedding day fun, and create new possibilities this wedding season.

As you will see in the photos below, both Rose Quartz and Serenity make for dynamic and memorable wedding accent colors. The subtle, muted blues of Serenity are cool and tranquil, while Rose Quartz complements with its punch of pink vibrance. When paired together, the romantic, sunset effect will leave your guests enchanted. Both colors are great any time of year, and can be augmented by a variety of greens and purples, or splashes of silver and yellow. In addition, these hues can be found in the natural environment, creating a dramatic and artistic backdrop for wedding day images.

If you’re looking to add an elegant twist to your big day, we’ve gathered the perfect inspiration for incorporating these trending colors. Scroll through the images below highlighting Rose Quartz and Serenity, and make sure to pin your favorites :)

Party Till Sundown – Daytime Wedding Inspiration

By, February 16, 2015

While daytime wedding celebrations feel different than nighttime events, they can be just as fun and beautiful. Daytime weddings offer many perks, including gorgeous natural light, warm sunshine, and bright blue skies. These conditions are especially beneficial at outdoor locations such as beaches, golf courses, and parks. Also, many venues offer mid-day discounts, as well as special brunch and lunch menus.

After a daytime celebration, there’s still time to enjoy a quiet reflective evening together, or even head out to an after-party. We’ve provided some inspiration for the wedding of your daydreams with this selection of recent photos :)

Today’s Inspiration: Inviting Wedding Invites

By, June 18, 2014

Wedding invitations are an enticing preview of the wedding, and the celebration to come. The invitation suite contains valuable information for guests, and helps to set the tone for the day. Whenever our wedding couples bring along their invites, we always make sure to photograph the suite, and capture details such as color, texture and presentation.

Invites can range from a simple card to a series of intricate paper-cuts or letterpress designs. As you’ll see in the photos below, wedding invites now come in any number of shapes and sizes, ranging from traditional to bold to flat-out funky.  With a creative and resourceful invitation designer, the options really are unlimited!

We “invite you” to have a look at some of our favorite invites from recent weddings.
