Wedding Suites

This week, Cara, our Bridal Project Manager, ponders the allure of a winter wedding and throws together two thematic palettes: silver and cranberry.

While I was dreaming of a white Christmas (which I got, yay!), I also dreamed of a winter wedding. The season is so romantic and sparkly, couldn’t it be amazing? Imagine falling snow, twinkling lights, glitzy decorations, dancing the night away at the ball, you and your beloved in a horse-drawn sleigh arriving at your castle…

Oh, did I get a little carried away there? Maybe. But even without a castle, a winter wedding sounds magical. When we got engaged, I thought of a New Year’s Eve wedding almost immediately. (I even considered going for it this year, but that didn’t last long! Planning a wedding in two months didn’t seem possible, given that I can barely plan what to eat for dinner tonight.)

I’m still thinking a bit about doing a winter wedding next year. I keep seeing indoor settings that are just stunning, like a high-ceilinged lodge or loft space decked out with white candles, fresh green boughs and warm lighting. Or a quaint church with gold accents, crimson flowers and a lively band (Love Actually, anyone?). Of course I imagine all this with snow outside, and the chances of that in Seattle are slim. And trading my faux-fur stole for a North Face rain jacket just doesn’t complete the picture in the same way. 🙂

I put together the collages above, inspired by the beautiful colors of the season and two gorgeous gowns. It’s interesting how different they feel–which do you like best?

Did you have a winter wedding? If so, I’d love to hear the details!



Over at, we’ve got gold fever! Luxurious gold tones lend themselves beautifully to fall and winter weddings, but we’re in love with one combination in particular that makes gold the perfect choice for warm-weather weddings: seafoam and gold.

Not quite blue, not quite green, seafoam is the perfect romantic summer wedding color! Gilded accents like gold place settings and sparkly trim bring the colors alive…we’re especially smitten with ranunculus and dusty miller for the florals in this scheme, bringing a bit of rustic romance and tying it all together!

{ 0 comments } here again, back to share another of the most beautiful and popular wedding color schemes of the season! Whether or not you’re an unabashed (or perhaps secret?) fan of the Fifty Shades novel series, we can’t deny that it has inspired our love for the color grey paired with…anything! One of our favorite pairings this season is Lilac and Slate.

For the Francophile in all of us, a lilac-and-slate color scheme whisks us away to the French countryside! Elegant décor dotted with lavender sprigs, free-flowing champagne and a getaway in a vintage car. Oh, how we can taste the Ladurée macarons now…
