It’s been about 3 weeks since we had our first 2012 spring wedding and it was truly a great one! So with the help of the talented Bryan Miller we put together an inspiration board inspired by Melanie and Michael’s wedding.

Melanie and Michael are a down to earth couple, so it only made sense that their color palette was a reflection of their personalities. Their dusty earth tones choice, helped compliment the wedding venue, Rancho Buena Vista Adobe, as well as encompass a romantic spring theme. In addition, to the spring theme, the couple wanted to integrate a sense of greenery. They decided to give their guests a planet conscious succulent, each in a Terra Cotta pot – it was a great personal touch and a gift guests could enjoy for years to come. The two main colors Melanie and Michael incorporated throughout their wedding were mint green and the blush peach. As you can see, the mint green emerged in the floral decor as well as in the nail color of both Melanie and her Bridesmaids. The peach appeared in the gorgeous Bridesmaids dresses and the adorable ties that Michael and his Groomsmen wore. In addition, it was the main color the florist, Kiyoko of Cherry Blossom Floral Designs used throughout the venue. Melanie and Michael were truly picturesque newlyweds in their beautifully designed spring wedding.

Brides, if you’re looking for a vintage-spring color palette this could be it!

We didn’t lie, we told you we would be back talking about our Spring Photo Shoot. This time, our photo shoot is published on A Paper Proposal. Thank you to Sarah Kohler for featuring us.

Of course, the photo shoot wouldn’t have been such a HUGE success if it wasn’t to the vendors who were part of our team.

I am usually not a fan of bright colors (or any colors as a matter in fact). I am usually seen wearing black, gray or a tan-like color. When it comes to laundry – I hardly do a load of lights or whites, HA!

But this new up and coming wedding trend I love. So much so that I, a girl who no colorful outfits will be taking this into consideration when shopping for summer attire.

The color is, TANGERINE. Really, the color is super gorgeous and makes this brunette skin of mine glow. Of course, this obsession isn’t complete without logging on to Pinterest and “window shopping.” There are so many pins for outfits with tangerine incorporated into them and they are giving me endless ideas! Below are a few favorites of mine. Of course I’ll be wearing these looks once the weather gets warmer and I get a little bit tanner. ;)
