Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence Day! Maybe this is a little too predictable, and you may have already guessed it but it’s full on American style with reds, whites, and blues for the 4th of July! The theme may not be perfect for a wedding any other day of the year but if it’s today {ok or maybe over a “4th of July weekend”} you can pull it off. Outdoors is best, rustic is good, and fireworks at the end are a must. Happy 4th!

Vintage Americana

As promised, plenty of Americana traditions and ideas are coming your wedding for planning your wedding day with some 4th of July spirit so today we’re going vintage – vintage Americana! For a July 4th week wedding, this is a perfect way to incorporate the holiday and the overall spirit without going down the cheesy route {but don’t worry we have ideas on that too.. lots of bright reds, whites, and blues coming your way on Thursday}. So I envision the vintage Americana theme for an outdoor wedding, I like the idea of a barn reception, I think it gives the overall vintage theme right from the start but it’s the decor that can make this theme even more special. Using washed out reds and blues gives the vintage feel and choosing unique items like the adorable favor tags from Etsy (eighth photo), or the fun red parasols on the back of the truck (last photo) add to the overall vintage feel!

Fall Tennessee Brunch Affair

It’s day 2 of our fall week here on OTW and we have another Tennessee wedding (what is it with Tennessee + fall weddings??) This wedding, captured gorgeously by Wild Cotton Photography, seems perfectly down to earth from the small-town ceremony to the fun details, the bright reds that blend into the season and the beyond fabulous bouquets.

And this wedding wasn’t your traditional nighttime affair. The couple, Paul and Katie, decided on a brunch complete with mimosas and a bloody mary bar, mini-apple fritters from Dickson Donuts, brown-sugar bacon, bacon & leek shrimp and grits, pancake skewers and a biscuit bar that included Amish jams. As if the fall colors and details weren’t swoon worthy enough; the brunch pushes it just over the edge of fabulous on the wedding front!

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!

Board {#3} Hollywood Glam

With the Oscars yesterday, I couldn’t help myself from dreaming up a little Hollywood glam inspiration. Maybe it was because Jessica Chastain was, what, like the first star on the red carpet? Or maybe I’m just a big fan of her, but this is Hollywood glam inspiration – Jessica Chastain style. She wore a gorgeous fitted gold gown and deep red berry colored lipstick which is so Hollywood and ever so timeless. So you may ask, why the silver? Well I saw Amy Adams next, and her blue-grey gown looked like pewter to me.. The result makes for a beautiful, wintry palette choice.. gold, deep red and pewter.
