Once upon another lifetime ago I touched on sourcing a wedding color palette from a non-wedding related image as inspiration. Its such a simple yet powerful way of going about the process that I wanted to breath new life into this idea along with how we can look for even more wedding related elements beyond just colors from a single image. An inspiration image can help you figure out far more than just your color palette, it can help direct you as far as the look and feel behind the styling of your wedding as well. From textural elements to a strong sense of theme, there is a lot to be learned from the images that draw us in.

July 4th is perhaps one of the most treasured and widely celebrated holidays we as Americans share. Not only does it represent the time our country defined itself, it is the very hallmark of everything that is Americna. There is a deep passion that comes with the fourth of July, be it military praise or the ability to enjoy our freedom, we love to embrace this summer highlight. When something embodies so much meaning it inspires beyond its core, as such gorgeous red white and blue weddings take a cue, crafting serious patriotic love, wedding style. Personally I feel a palette of red white and blue can go array easily. They are three very strong colors when put together, work with the wrong tones of each and all you have is a lot of noise. Work with the right variations of these hues and you have a red white and blue wedding masterpiece. Below is a collection of some of my favorites that took Americana love, a sprinkle of Patriotic beauty and turned it into sheer magic. Blooms, brides, cocktails & treats, you'll find a bevy of patriotic wedding inspiration that will tug at your Americana heartstrings!

When I was considering what exactly it was that I wanted to feature today, putting together just about anything drenched in pure green seemed so very expected. After a few moments of mauling spring weddings over, it occurred to me what pairs ever so beautifully with the deep earthy hues of green, leather. Both green & leather has a true organic life force feel, when the two are paired together there is a real salt of the earth power that is hard to ignore. Working mostly with jewel tones of green, those found naturally occurring, nothing to bold or extreme, there is a certain passive feel that emotes, a calm & cozy place. Each element has a feel of refinement & sophistication, all while being grounded and wholesome. This spring wedding inspiration board serves as the perfect bridge for couples looking for style & grace all while assembling a day that is filled with personality & charm.

Just this passed weekend I had the honor of putting together some centerpieces for the birthday party of a very close family friend. I ended up being really thankful for the opportunity to put these arrangements together for our friend, as her personal color preferences differ from mine and as a result, I stumbled upon perhaps my newest favorite Fall/Winter color palette yet! While earthy tones of red, orange & yellow are nothing terribly new for the season, it was the variations of each that I was able to work with and whats more, the gorgeous stems which happened to beautifully blend them all together!
