Meet the Couple

Sara + Steve are just so in love, you can see it in how they interact and how they look at one another.

The two lovebirds had met through a mutual friend a few years prior to dating.  After meeting for coffee one day though, Sara and Steve really felt a connection.  Not wanting the coffee date to end, the two talked for hours and hours.  It was obvious that sparks were flying and soon began spending more and more time together and fell madly in love!

Their Proposal

So utterly romantic!
This past summer, in Venice, Italy – one of the most romantic cities on the planet… surrounded by iconic canals and beautiful architecture, this is where Steve declared his love and popped the question to Sara. 

 

 

 

 

While planning the colour pallet, I felt inspired by Rose Quartz, one of the two Pantone Colours of the Year for 2016.  I chose Navy to balance out the soft femininity of the Rose Quartz/ Blush.Bridal Bouquet with succuletsCarla of Carla Lily Flowers put together the gorgeous textural posy for our Bride-to-be turned model, Sara.

Rose Quartz + Serenity: Pantone Colours of 2016

Every year, fashion designers and event planners alike eagerly await a certain exciting announcement.  The trend predictors at Pantone announce their predictions for the Top 10 Colours of the year as well as naming a single much anticipated colour of the year.  It is really a self-fulfilling prophesy though, because industry professionals accept this prediction as a fun challenge, and come up with new and exciting ways to showcase this colour.  Hence the trend prediction often becomes a trend setter.

For the first time ever, Pantone’s colour of the year trend prediction is actually a combination of two colours; Rose Quartz + Serenity.  A move that they say “Challenges traditional perceptions of colour association” transcends cultural and gender norms and is calming, all about balance.    The others listed in Pantone’s Top 10 Colours of 2016 are Iced Coffee, Fiesta, Green Flash, Limpet Shell, Snorkel Blue, Buttercup, Peach Echo and (my fave of the bunch) Lilac Grey.

We’re still all about 2015’s colour Marsala, and just between you and me, we may have found an excuse to play around with this gorgeous wine coloured hue, so stay tuned for an update on that!  (UPDATE: click link ^ to see the photos!)

What do you think about the Rose Quartz and Serenity pairing; Love it? Or leave it?  I decided to create a Pinterest board dedicated to the tranquil colour duo.

Do you plan to incorporate Rose Quartz + Serenity into your 2016 or 2017 wedding theme?  We would love to see how!
