Wedding colors seem to come in waves. And about three years ago we were in the middle of a purple movement. I got bored of the color really quickly as there seemed to be very little variation in shade, design and I even had two weddings in a row wearing the same bridesmaids dresses. This royal Grimis hue was not causing my creative juices to thrive.
When Mattie and I began discussing her color scheme, I had a couple of flashbacks with she started talking about shades of amethyst. But then she added dove grey and moody mauve and I got really excited. She had this really sultry, in depth vision of pairing dramatic pewter and black accents against a classically soft spring color palette of lavender and lilac. I certainly shouldn’t be surprised that Mattie had such impeccable tastes, she’s a wedding planner herself and has some gorgeous work in her portfolio (check out Spark & Wildflower). I made the personal flowers and a topper for the cake and left the rest in Mattie’s very competent hands. I simply loved how beautiful this wedding turned out.
