English Garden Wedding Inspiration

Posted on September 7th, 2013 by annalemberger

Catch the last, warm rays of summer with an elegant English garden party inspired wedding. Plus, an English garden wedding might just help quell that anxious waiting for the new season of Downton Abbey. Imagine: happy faces of fragrant blossoms line the aisles. Plush, green grass blankets the grounds. More lovely, blushing flowers – rivaled only by the bride – burst out of every corner and detail from the bouquets to the cake.  Rose petals rain down on the new couple as they take their first steps as husband and wife. Delicate floral patterned gowns adorn the guests. Magical. And of course the hats. Don’t forget the over-the-top sun hats and parasols.

The British are especially particular about their gardens; so, to do the English gardening tradition justice, make sure to do your research on the best blooms for late summer and early fall. Try a fragrant perennial like lavender; it’s a great choice that you can use not only in your decor but also in your menu, as a garnish or flavor. Think, lavender cupcakes! For roses that bloom later in the year, go for – what else – an English rose variety.

Woodland Wedding Inspiration

Posted on October 28th, 2012 by annalemberger
Nothing sets the scene for a romantic wedding ceremony quite like a serene forest setting. One of the most beautiful weddings I have ever attended was an outdoor autumn ceremony set against the backdrop of Colorado mountains. Vows were spoken in an open meadow, which guests found with just a short walk through the woods and over a lovely stream.  It was peaceful, picturesque, and intimate. If you intend to capture the last beautiful days of fall with an outdoor ceremony or are planning for next year, consider some of these outdoor, forest wedding tips.

Cornucopia of Color: Pantone’s Fall 2012 Color Report

Posted on September 18th, 2012 by annalemberger

There is a magical moment, every year, when I wake up to nature’s color symphony; when leaves make their last stand in a shock of vibrant hues that shout “look at me!” before falling to the earth. Fall is so full of color inspiration it may be hard to know where to turn when choosing the perfect fall wedding colors. Fortunately, the color experts at Pantone have released their Fashion Color Report for Fall 2012 – a great guide for what is trending this season. While some of the usual autumn suspects are included, like Honey Gold, French Roast, Titanium, Tangerine Tango, and Ultramarine Green, there are some unique standouts. Olympian Blue is a bright choice that would pair well with Honey Gold or French Roast. Rhapsody and Pink Flambe are also quite lovely and add a feminine touch to any color scheme. But it is Rose Smoke that tops my favorite color list this fall. It’s like a soothing whisper – barely there, but oh so lovely.

Sage Wedding Inspiration

Posted on September 5th, 2012 by annalemberger

Throughout history, sage has been the go-to herb for curing several medical ailments and warding off evil spirits. One old saying even asks, “Why should anyone die who has sage in their garden?” A mighty herb indeed! Along with its amazing prowess as an herb, sage provides wonderfully earthy color inspiration for an autumn wedding. Pair sage with golden hues for an added elegance. Get creative with sage by including the fragrant leaves in the bridal bouquet and boutonnieres. Plus, you can feel confident knowing no evil spirits will be walking down the aisle with you!
