Color of the Year 2015: Marsala

Pantone announced the 2015 color of the year as Marsala – a “full bodied and earthy wine red.” We love the dusty warm undertones of this hue as an accent color in all seasons.

Tanya and Jose

Perennial Patterns: It’s pretty obvious from this post that floral prints are a favorite of ours and they worked perfectly  for Jose’s floral tie, Tanya’s silk robe and their gorgeous invitations.

Contemporary Colors: We love Cornelia McNamara’s take on modernizing red by mixing traditional reds with pinks and fuschias.

Enveloped in Ivory: Tanya’s veil was  a show stopper. Every single image of it floating weightlessly behind her took our breath away.

Annie and Adam

Citrus Chic: We’re in love with his ombre palette of oranges, yellows and greens and with Cornelia McNamara’s creative use of fruit. Pops of citrus color were everywhere but our favorite use of this palette is a tie between Annie’s gorgeous bouquet and her rainbow of bridesmaids!

Elegant Embroidery: The unexpected details on Annie’s wedding gown perfectly complimented the sweet, sophisticated feel of this mid summer evening.

Sweet tooth:  Annie and Adam covered every base with a dessert selection that included a kumquat covered wedding cake, a Michigan cherry pie and Grandma Bernice’s Cookies.

October Inspiration – Cutting Edge

Another one of our favorite trends from fashion week – laser cut details are little bit edgier than lace, but just as pretty!

Kim and Will


Happy Hunters: Kim was the best sport about the rainy afternoon and threw on a pair of hunters to splash around in the courtyard and grab some amazing shots!
Poppy Punch: Lacey bridesmaids dresses, napkins, and roses added the perfect punch of color a neutral palette of blush and ivory.
“We all scream for Ice Cream!“: Kim and Will treated guests to an amazing ice cream sandwich bar with multiple choices of cookies and ice cream fillings.
