Posted on January 13th, 2014 by annalemberger

The color experts at Pantone have named Radiant Orchid the 2014 color of the year. These color lovers chose Radiant Orchid for the way it “emanates great joy, love and health.”  Those are certainly wonderful traits to infuse into your own wedding!  Orchids are wonderful inspiration for any time of year but especially for a warm, summer ceremony. And nothing says summer like soft sand between your toes. Orchids make the perfect beach wedding flower, from bright boutonnieres to blooming, fragrant cakes.  If you can’t have a destination wedding in Hawaii, just close your eyes and inhale that radiant orchid smell and you’ll be transported to an island in no time.

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.

The color experts at Pantone have once again put out a decadent palate of color inspiration. The Spring 2013 Color Report brings a wonderful mix of soft hues and surprising bursts of brightness.  Poppy Red is one of my all-time favorite colors, and Greyed Jade is already making an appearance in spring fashion. Overall, the collection feels like a refreshing outdoor walk on a sunny spring day. With a nod to nature, I brought floral and feather elements into this week’s inspiration board.

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.
