Emerald {Inspiration Board}

Hello! I hope everyone has had a productive, successful, and happy week as we move into some weekend R&R. Over at Wedding Row California we've been quite busy wrapping up photoshoots, curating gorgeous weddings, and of course lots of coffee dates with our favorite industry friends - sooo, I'm definitely ready for that rest & relaxation! PLUS, this weekend might just be shorts and maxi dress weather...two items of clothing that are typically pretty rare around these parts. Exciting stuff. Anyhow, lets get to gorgeous. Historically, I've been a neutral palette-type of gal with the occasional burst of bright color - however lately, I'm really loving some of these bolder statement hues. Good thing, because apparently this Fall calls for an abundance of bold, elegant jewel tones - which I'm more than ok with. My favorite in the jewel tone family is 'Emerald', he's regal, chic, dramatic, yet can also be romantic when paired with the right accents. I wanted to share some Emerald inspiration complemented with touches of lighter tones in peach, gold, and, mint. Such a great contrast of sweet meets drama.

Pastel Wedding Inspiration

Do pastel colors and Easter go hand in hand for you like they do for me?  I'm a big fan of the bold, bright color trend this season, but have an equal respect for soft, feminine pastels.  With Easter coming up this weekend, it couldn't be more perfect timing to give some love to pastels.  Have you completely crossed over to the bold side or do you still have a long lost love for these soft hued babies?

Banana + Mint Inspiration Board

Today I wanted to put a twist on traditional color combo, yellow and green.  By muting the usual tones to banana and mint shades, we end up with a look that is a bit retro, a little vintage, yet still a very modern via the unexpected usage, i.e. mint dishware, banana bound books, and a nontraditional bridal gown.  What do you think? Any other color combo's you'd like to see twisted?
