Purple and Gray: Modern and Sophisticated

I am in love with the purple and gray color pallette. These colors can be as soft or as bold as you like. The key is to not overdue the purple. Purple is a color that can be easily overdone so use it sparingly and in the right places. Here is how I would use it.

Spring 2010 Colors: Your Spring Wedding


Well it is that time of year again...New York Fashion Week and with that the color gods give us the new hot colors for the upcoming season. Pantone Fashion Color Report for 2010 has been released and I like the palette a lot. So brides, if you are still trying to decide on the colors to design your wedding look no further. I love the pink champagne and tuscany colors. I think I feel an inspiration board coming on.

Bridesmaids Dress = Cute Second Wedding Dress

So you've got a little extra money in your wedding budget and you want to change into something a little more comfortable after the ceremony, but you still want to be the stylish, fabulous bride you are...why not choose a bridesmaids dress?
Designers have made shopping for bridesmaids gowns so easy, by allowing you to play with color of the dress by simply clicking the color. That way you can see which dresses come in white or ivory. A lot of the bridesmaids gowns have been designed to be also be worn by brides as well. Visit two of my favorite bridesmaids collections Bari Jay and After Six to play with your favorite dresses.

Below are gowns from the Bari Jay collection. Aren't they gorgeous?

Favorite Wedding Shot Friday

I love how photographers creatively make a dress hanging on a hanger not look like just a dress hanging on a hanger. This shot is from the fabulous Whitney Elizabeth Photography.

SJB Weddings & Events Real Wedding: Huntersville, NC

I was so excited to get the message from Stepanie at Indigo Photography telling me they blogged some of the images from Christine and Bobby's wedding. When I found out Indigo Photography were the photographers I was so happy because I knew the images would be amazing and based on their blog post they did not disappoint.
Christine and Bobby were married in July and it was one of the sweetest ceremonies I have ever witnessed. Bobby surprised his bride with a live performance from one of their favorite bands Glory Dive and the look on her face was priceless. We enjoyed working with this couple and the wonderful mother of the bride.
Well, here is a sneak peek of this fabulous couple and when I get more detail shots I'll be sure to post them here. Read the full blog post from Indigo Photography here.
