Wedding: The Color Palette

The first decision we made about our wedding was...

Our Color Palette.  

Which we actually agreed on very quickly. 

So here's to some of the first things I'm sharing in planning our wedding. 

How exciting

 :) :) :) 

First came inspiration in the perfect nail polish colors. 

Couldn't believe not only did the man agree on love at first sight 

(with the colors of course)


he actually perfected it -

picking more of a sea foam/ mint green 

then the initial turquoise-ish color I picked out.

Post Its in the same color helped out too. 

Oh silly inspiration..

Then came some vision boards with those colors. 

These (

) pictures were perfect!

[the first a bit of a lighter palette than what the picture shows]

After that was the first test. 

Engagement shoot (pictures taken ourselves) to test out our colors. 

We were initially going to do it in Charlottesville.

But were happy to wait until we got to the beach -

woke up early and got to work. 

Sad looking at these pictures now after what just happened to the 

Jersey Shore, 


we approved the colors :)

Next came designing our Save the Dates

and I'm very happy we did them ourselves. 

They are so us!

We both love the rounded corners 

(we went where we got our christmas cards last year -



and the kraft envelopes with the "fake" calligraphy. 

It's hard to tell but the initials on the front and back (including the heart)

are with the UV spot coating that adds a nice little touch. 

And the inspiration continues - I think I've gone color crazy these days. 

Love, love, loving mint green and peach!

Happy Colors!

 Oh and PS..We got our cute little stamp for the back of our envelopes



I couldn't recommend the stamp enough - it is perfection.
