Palette Inspiration: Lavender and Lilac

With spring in full bloom, nature is a riot of color all around – and the options for a spring color palette can be overwhelming! No season offers more options for florals – from pastels to bright neon, citrus to bright white and natural greenery.

It’s a well known color secret that lavender and lilac are some of spring’s most beautiful tones, and mix fabulously with a variety of different event types – the trick is to blend them with contrasting shades, to create depth and dimension within your event design. (The look to avoid is a murple purple mash up where your wedding looks like it got caught in a jar of grape jelly). For example, you can blend lavender sweet peas with coral garden roses, as long as you keep the look cohesive, and anchored around your chosen shade. Here are some of our favorite spring inspirations for a pastel purple infused wedding that packs a punch:

Blogger Bride Series – Styling Your Engagement Shoot

I’ve always been a California girl at heart, with a love for the ocean and the golden sunlight that seems to only exist in our beautiful state. When Ned and I met, we were working in San Francisco, and our trips to southern California were frequent and joy-filled: so when it came time to style our engagement photo shoot, I knew exactly what I wanted it to look like. Working with FABULOUS photographers was a great way to ensure that our look came out exactly as we envisioned it – and starting with a pin-spiration board on Pinterest really helped me corral and curate all of our ideas into a single cohesive design.

Here are some killer inspirations from our golden hour engagement shoot:
