Wedding Inspiration with Tangerine Tango

tangerine tango inspiration

If you are a big fan of color trends like me,then I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Pantone declared Tangerine Tango as their Pantone Color for 2012. While I’m not typically a fan of orange, I think this shoot today has totally changed my mind! Concept + styled by the lovely Kristy Rice of Momental Designs, this shoot involves watercolors + Tangerine Tango ideas for a gorgeous modern wedding. Kristy sketched and created the entire Trellis pattern for Envelopments and then designed the entire shoot around it bringing in custom made fabrics, chairs, paper chandeliers and of course a variety of stationery pieces. I just love all the hand painting that goes into Kristy’s work and this shoot goes to show it’s not only for the paper – the cakes, the chandeliers and even a paper flower bouquet with hand painting – simply stunning! Gorgeous photos thanks to Swoon Over It Photography.

Did you know that with Dessy Group you can customize their dresses with the exact Pantone color swatches?! How rad is that + super perfect to find the exact color of dresses you are looking for your wedding day. The dress above is from the Tangerine Tango Pantone swatch! :)

From Kristy, Overall the look is meant to be a mix of clean and organic but not overly fussy or feminine. Versatility is key and communicating the many faces of the Trellis pattern was important. The table itself was set with minimal fluff, where stationery and watercolor spatter place settings as the focus. The color palette is monochromatic at first glance with unexpected pops of complimentary tones here and there. Custom pattern fabric were used in upholstery throughout. Small cafe chair seats, large overstuffed lounge chair, etc…

The cakes were all made in collaboration with Truly Scrumptious. Trellis was hand painted + deconstructed on each.

A Festival Inspired Backyard Wedding: Visra + Chris

giant pink tent, wedding

Visra + Chris live on an amazingly beautiful property in Woodside, CA and wanted to share their love of their home and property with all their family and friends on their wedding day. These are two easy going people with fast paced jobs – he’s the VP of a little site called Facebook and she’s a filmmaker that travels around the world. They wanted a mellow burning man/concert type of celebration where guests camped on the property for 3 days which I completely love! ”Tent city” was made up of numerous tents on the property and guests were welcomed to camp out for the weekend – Visra + Chris even had a special wedding night tent (the gorgeous pink tent above made of pink fabric + wood overlooking a mountain range where they put their bed and spent their wedding night “camping”!). Outdoor sinks with antique mirrors were set up along side the outdoor showers. Vintage rentals were also brought in to complete the homey and woodsy feel.

The most amazing part of the day had to be the triangular dining table. Visra + Chris spent 6 months with artist Drew Bennett designing + building the dining table for their 200+ guests. The idea was to have all the pieces connected so that their family and friends could sit down and share the dinner at one table. Their wedding also had fresh produce + oysters that were brought in for munching, mixologist’s mixed top notch cocktails, and 2 bands and DJ kept the party going into the wee hours of the morning. Visra + Chris truly had the wedding at home that they dreamed of…unlike any other. Big thanks to Jenny Kim Photo for the gorgeous photos + to the ladies of Sitting In A Tree for the wedding planning + design.

Instead of registering, Visra + Chris asked guests to bring an unwrapped book for their ever expanding collection. Guests shelved the books on a rustic bookshelf.

Win a Bachelorette Party at Paws Up!

bachelorette-party-paws-up-intro

A little over a year ago, Jason and I were invited to spend a few nights at The Resort at Paws Up in Missoula, Montana (you can read about our stay here). We had such an amazing time and loved sharing the resort on GWS as a perfect honeymoon spot.

However, after thinking about it, The Resort at Paws Up would also make a super rad bachelorette party! In addition to the camps, they have lots of gorgeous estate homes that would be just perfect for a girl’s getaway. And – the best part is that we’ve partnered up to give away an AMAZING BACHELORETTE PARTY WEEKEND! The giveaway is for 3 night and five girls (you and four of your closest friends). You will be staying in a  Wilderness Estate as seen below. You will also get to pick from all their amazing activities and they are throwing in 1 half-day activity per person for the giveaway (excludes hot air balloon + guided fly-fishing).
