Color Palettes

Soft Teal, Cameo and Ivory

These soft colors would work well for a classic, romantic wedding. A beautiful Ivory wedding gown could be complemented by bridesmaid dresses in Cameo (a pale orange tone) and bouquets featuring the same hues. Soft Teal ties would be a lovely accent against ivory or khaki suits for the groomsmen. A deckle-edge wedding invitation printed in Taupe ink on Ecru paper would work beautifully with this palette.

Puppy Love No.1

November 25, 2008

Ok, so I’m a huge dog lover – a complete sucker for those sweet innocent eyes and wagging tails. My two pups (a black Lab and brindle Bullmastiff) are well aware of my weakness and use it to their advantage every chance they get :)  It’s great to see when couples include their four-legged kids in their wedding celebration…I mean really, what could be more precious?! Here’s a little Puppy Love roundup in honor of these furry family members…
