The colour trend guru’s at Pantone are predicting that the most popular colour of 2019 will be Living Coral.
It’s said to have a playful energy, with warmth and it’s quite a mellow and cheerful hue.
“Just as coral reefs are a source of sustenance and shelter to sea life, vibrant yet mellow Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.”
I used coral and shades of tangerine and peach in a tablescape I designed once, with cookies for place cards. Those were a fun detail!
It’s certainly a departure from 2018’s regal Ultra Violet. Check out how much fun we had playing with that dramatic and vibrant colour!
What are your thoughts? We want to hear! How would you use this colour in your own wedding?
In the heart of Calgary’s East Village, overlooking the Bow River is the century old Simmons Building that is home to Charbar. We knew this 102 year old building with its exposed brick, wooden beams would be the perfect location for this styled inspiration shoot. I chose a love poem by E.E. Cummings because it evokes the really romantic feeling that I was going for with my design for the shoot.
For a more bohemian bridal look I selected this crop by Theia with delicate scalloped eyelash lace and long sleeves. Pearl & Dot Bridal Boutique and we decided to pair that with a flowy bridal skirt by Kathryn Bass Bridal. Blissful Paper Co. created the beautiful calligraphy paper banner for our love poem. This is a still image from the video by Cinderwood Films, just wait until you see the full video! Thanks to MaddPretty Salon for bringing out our model’s natural beauty. Beautiful blooms with lots of rich colours and textures by Foxglove Studio.
CreateLove Designs created our invitation suite and menus with floral designs. I had a style in mind for the table number, chair signs, place card names so I reached out to Custom Laser Works who even created a fun guest book alternative. (see down below). Bella Linens contributed lovely romantic lace on blush table linens as well as the draping and luxe candelabras! I just love this little wooden bar cart from Orange Trunk Vintage, which we styled as a desert and drinks table with their other lovely vintage pieces. Fancy some sweet treats by Modern Bake YYC? Oh how yummy these were! Bringing together this incredible team of vendors to collaborate on this inspiration shoot was so much fun. Thank you so much for all of your effort and contributions!
Holly + Brett are a truly unique couple, so their wedding had to stand out! Laid back, sentimental, and so much fun, their wedding incorporated their personalities into every detail. Find out what they swapped out instead of the traditional wedding cake, bouquet or guestbook! Instead of a traditional bouquet, Holly opted for handmade fabric flowers on her couture dress and to drape everything in flowers and greenery from top to bottom. Check out this pretty hanging greenery and ceremony vignette where Holly + Brett said their “I Do’s”
Fun details like this pair of vintage typewriters as a guestbook alternative, made Holly + Brett’s wedding so unique. Holly collected these items and created the banners for the reception decor herself. Holly carefully selected vintage pieces to create a warm and inviting lounge area. Brett worked on his 1960 Chevy Bel Air so that he could drive his Bride Holly away in it after the ceremony.
Brett and several of the couples’ friends and family showcased their classic cars between the ceremony and reception.
After a brief rain (considered to be good luck for many years of happiness) we spotted a rainbow!
Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Holly + Brett opted for a vintage popsicle cart from Family Freezed. The popsicle sticks were even personalized! To keep guests going through the night, Holly + Brett brought in a Food Truck for late night snack. I had so much fun, with you guys! It was a true pleasure to be involved in your wedding and to work with the following amazing team!
Marsala has been announced as Pantone’s prediction for the colour of the year for 2015. Compared to last year’s color Radiant Orchid, this year’s colour is a much more rich hue. It’s deeper and pairs well with metallics. **Just between us darling, that’s a little clue as to a certain wedding inspiration styled shoot that I may have in the works!
“This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty.” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute.
Will you be incorporating this rich wine hue into your wedding colour pallet? We’d love to hear from you!
Radiant Orchid has been announced as Pantone’s prediction for the 2014 colour of the year! It’s bright, and cheery, and it’s not just for spring! This shade pairs especially nicely with dove grey or with summer colours such as greens or a sunny lemon yellow. Fall and winter Brides can mix with metallics or muted tones if they feel this shade is too bright for their colour scheme.
“An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality” An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
