A Radiant Orchid Palette

I’ve been waiting patiently for Spring to do a pretty palette with this years color of the year {Radiant Orchid} and after way too many cold days I couldn’t wait any longer! It’s a perfect color for a warm weather wedding, full of warmth and body! Here’s my take on the lovely radiant orchid :)

Board {#21} Lavender & Olive Beauty and Bliss

Seems pretty fitting that Pantone just revealed it’s color of the year {Radiant Orchid} and here we have a lavender inspired inspiration board, but completely random I promise… and lavender is not quite Radiant Orchid anyway so guess I’ll have to put that one on the to do list! But in my opinion, lavender is infinitely the best shade of purple and paired with a light and airy palette {I love a pale grey and faded olive} it creates a perfectly Spring palette with enough color to make a statement but be far from over the top!

Lovely Lavender

It’s one of those kind of posts today, just because I love lavender that much. I don’t know what it is about this special little flower; and it’s even more puzzling when you take into account my long history with purple; I’d call us “frienemies”. To put it diplomatically, it’s just not my favorite. But there’s something about lavender that makes all that go away. It’s peaceful, friendly, fun and creative. It has more depth than your typical flower but it possesses the same delicacy. Think I’m crazy? Maybe… sometimes I do too but I promise you won’t regret adding a touch of lavender to your big day; whatever the form…

East Meets West – Maine Wedding Style

It’s a dramatic end to the week here on OTW with plenty of purple and gold details that blend beautifully to create a bold and dramatic Maine wedding captured by Casey Durgin Photography. The wedding, held at the bride’s family residence in Neddick, Maine started with a stunning backdrop but was a lot more than just a pretty picture. The details blended the bride and groom, Natalie and Rahul’s, backgrounds; masterfully pulling their different cultures into one fabulous day. Bright with colors, modern with details, and beautiful all the way, this wedding makes for a very happy Friday!

The Wedding Palette – Peaches and Plums

Happy Monday! Well it’s been a dismally cold weekend here in NYC so I needed a little something springy to cheer me up and start thinking about summery wedding and happy pretty things! So peaches and plums it is. My own take on inspiration for this fruity palette today using the.. yep, you guessed it, actual fruit as my guide. And from there just a little of this (plum garter?) and a little of that (a peach wedding dress or purple bridesmaids dresses?) all of which make today’s palette cheery, fun and very springy!
