Pantone’s 2015 ‘Color of the year’

by

Introducing…Marsala

Year after year, color enthusiast look to Pantone to release their color of the year. Their 2015 pick has been named and that color is Marsala. Panton describes it as “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”

Now we LOVE a rich red or purple and Marsala does not disappoint. We love the earthiness and its full bodied rich mix of red and brown tones. It is very pleasing to the eye and can certainly be used as a bold accent color for your wedding or event. Bridesmaids dresses, the Bride’s shoes, lips and nails as well as the folder for invitations would go very well especially for a fall/winter wedding. It’s warm tones will draw guests in and make them feel cozy.

Happy Planning!

Frozen Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Inspiration from Disney’s Frozen

I know I m late to the party but my daughter and I finally watched Disney’s “Frozen” a few days ago. I wasn’t sure if I would like the movie because to be honest, if I heard “Let it snow” one more time I thought I would scream. But we both thoroughly enjoyed it and by the end of the movie I was a bit teary eye. LOVE the theme of unconditional love, especially that of family. Now being a wedding and event planner, I was most mesmerized by the part of the movie where, after running away, Elsa creates her ice castle and dress. I could totally imagine a wedding taking place in there with its large stair case and open floor plan. Yes, we are still talking about an animated movie but it inspired me to create something frozen.

While doing a bit of research to curate some of my favorite frosted ideas, I came across this totally gorgeous Winter Wonderland styled shoot on Elegant Weddings Magazine’s website. There is a great amount of inspiration for your “Frozen”, Ice Queen or Winter Wonderland wedding.

Happy Planning!
