Emerald Wedding Inspiration

succulent bouquet

We can’t get enough of the Pantone’s color of the year – Emerald! This lovely shoot was sent over by the talented Kristy of Momental Designs and was a collaboration with Envelopments® to showcase the beautiful pattern used in this shoot (also created by Kristy) – Fiore. An artful spin on a classic Florentine look, this pattern speaks in watercolor and pencil line with a slightly whimsical voice. I love all the watercolor details (and those stunning green bouquets above by Papertini!) in this shoot along with the modern direction with touches of paint spatter + pencil sketched textural elements. Thanks to Swoon Over It Photography for the photos.

Bridesmaids dresses from Dessy Group in Pantone  (yep, you can purchase bridesmaids dresses from Dessy in any Pantone color!) matched shades of emerald.

They created a mod king’s feast look on the table with a runner installation featuring gorgeous green produce, white hellebores, lilac, italian ruscus, eucalyptus and amaranthus. Hanging above was a gilded antler chandelier decked out with hand painted paper leaves and flourishes reminiscent of Fiore shapes.
