Color Palettes

Raisin, Tangelo and Kiwi

June 22, 2010

Hi there! Sorry for the late post today… been busy, busy busy!

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a palette with deep, rich colors. I think this one would work well for a Fall wedding or even a modern, elegant evening wedding in the summer…

Classic Finds: Glam Picnics

June 18, 2010

Sarah from Classic Bride is back with us every Friday to share a few of her favorite finds, inspiration and ideas for chic, classic weddings. Here’s this week’s find:

picnic wedding

What’s not to love about picnics? The heirloom quilts, the classic gingham, the home-made treats, the wine {which is always in abundance at my kind of picnics (o; }, the cloud-watching … it’s all so idyllic. Even the standard picnic basket emits a huge amount of cheer. So why not translate those happy feelings into a wedding? We’ve seen the theme carried out in e-shoots time and time again and it works like a charm each time … I’m loving the idea of little quilts spread about a lawn standing in for tables and loads and loads of cozy pillows standing in for the chairs … maybe a spontaneous game of croquet could come about after the cake cutting?

Re-Introduction: Love Logo #23

June 16, 2010

This design was added to the collection back in February so it’s not new… I just wanted to share a couple photos we recently took.

I love the vintage-looking, ornate wedding logo. Actually, I almost didn’t add this design to the collection… I knew I liked it but I wasn’t sure if brides would. Surprisingly, it’s been one of the more popular wedding logos this year! Here’s a closer look at Love Logo #23:

Regal with excellent posture, this design uses words like “connotes,” “prim” and “proper” when speaking of your wedding.

(Logo can be purchased separately).
