Board {#6} Coral, Grey + Shades of Pink

Pretty in shades of pink plus a little coral and pale grey is what’s getting me out of bed this morning! Lots of colors perfectly {we think} blended together for a bright palette. This is a combination that makes you think twice. Well.. four times? One for each color maybe; because you usually don’t actually see such a variety in one palette – generally it’s just in the bouquet. But this is one thing on the Spring agenda that I think we’ll see a lot more of. Drawing on the idea of ombré anything… (that fading of light to dark on dresses, in bouquets – seriously anything these days) is where the idea for a combination of pinks and a sprinkle of coral came in. The result? Well I’ll let you decide…

Board {#5} Passionate Red and Cotton Candy Pink

Monday’s always start better with some color and today with a little winter storm on the way to NYC, I wanted lots of bright colors… along the lines of reds and pinks to create a pretty {Valentine’s Day?} wedding palette. Well obviously we missed the memo on V-day but that doesn’t mean these colors can’t be used in a palette for a spring wedding. I love little details that blend pinks and reds without making them obnoxious. An elegant mix to create the perfect passionate red and cotton candy pink palette!

A Little Valentine’s Day Love

Sharing some love here on OTW today for a very fun Valentine’s inspired shoot by Christin Rose in a cozy little cafe in LA. I love the vibrant (and non-red) colors, the goodies and the overall vibe… this would make the perfectly non-traditional Valentine’s Day engagement shoot. Any takers?

Christmas Countdown: The Beautiful Blush & Cranberry

On the 6th day of Christmas we’re back to the palette with something a little different because sadly I am sick of seeing my own red and green ideas every single day… So we’re taking a hiatus..back to red on Friday though!

Today we’re doing a spin on the reds and pinks with a lovely blush pink and cranberry Christmas (or winter) palette! I always like doing wedding posts that I would love to use at my own someday wedding and on the 6th day of Christmas this one makes the cut! I’d love to see the girls in long blush colored dresses, and my inspiration is coming from this gorgeous White by Vera Wang wedding gown (first photo) – a toned down version of this would be perfect. If you’d prefer short dresses, how about mix and matching styles (eighth photo) to put a fun spin on the norm. Also on the fashion front, a shoe splurge..love these pale pink Christian Louboutin classic pumps (third photo). For fun, you can find awesome handmade bridesmaids gifts like this adorable purse in the perfect palette for today (seventh photo) and for our final fashion pick..how cute is this flower garter (thirteenth photo).

Moving onto floral, keep with the cranberry palette here for a wintry look (second, forth, ninth, twelve photos). This gives a vintagey-elegant feel but keeps it seasonal. For the food… a few touches can go a long way. Like what? Try a signature drink…love these cranberry margaritas (fifth photo). On the sweeter side and back to blush, these angel food cupcakes with pink icing (sixth and tenth photos) are to die for! And finally the paper… of course, invitations with tones of blush and cranberry (eleventh photo) to keep everything consistent and in our case….hopefully Christmasy too!

A Key West Inspired Affair

Well with the cold weather coming our way and it being only Thursday, it’s time for a bit of sun to get us through to the weekend.. A lot of times we hear about destination wedding locations but today I wanted to highlight some ideas inspired by the lovely little city of Key West – this time I’m not necessarily suggesting to make it a destination wedding; it’s more about the ideas. And when I think Key West I think pretty colors (pinks mainly), bright blue skies with a hint of old world charm so that’s what’s inspiring me today..
