The Color Story: Rose Gold

Sarah Seven Blush Dress

How many of you caught yesterday’s fun Color Story feature, conceptualized by Rachael of lace and likes?

We’re lovin’ this feature because it really shows how to use color in an interesting way, and teaches us that sticking to a platte or vibe is the way to go. For a cohesive look, don’t pick too many hues, but you don’t have to settle on too few either. As you’ll see in Joielala’s pretty captures below, layering blush, lilacs and magentas was key in bringing this rose gold scene to life!

Vibrant Hummingbird Nest Ranch Wedding: Sue + Matt

Humming Bird Nest Ranch Wedding

Sue + Matt’s laid-back attitude and sense of humor led them to throw a wedding that was pretty much pure fun! Everything about their day conveyed their excitement + enthusiasm for each other – and for throwing a good party, too! From the whimsical and creative decor full of gold dinosaurs, origami shapes and sequined tablecloths, to the ferris wheel, food trucks + giant sprinkle cake, we have a feeling your day just got a little better + brighter now that this wedding is a part of it! Let’s hear more from Sue about it all:

We met at film school and bonded over our love for movies and dinosaurs (Jurassic Park of course!), so it was easy coming up with a theme that screamed us! I had seen a ferris wheel at a wedding a couple of years back and knew I always wanted one at my own wedding. Lucky for me, Matt loved the idea and didn’t object! We wanted it to be fun, bright and classy. Matt loves bright colors, so we incorporated that into all our decorations. And I love sparkly things so we added hints of gold and sequins throughout the night.

Jaime (from Wild Heart Eventswas great to work with because all I had to say was “colors and dinosaurs!” and she sent us so many great ideas, most of which were incorporated into our wedding! And thanks to Rebecca of Birds of a Feather for the gorgeous photos!

Sue: So much advice so little time, I feel like I could write a book! The three main pieces of advice I would give is
1) Don't plan your wedding for your guests. This sounds snarky, but I don't intend it to be - your pocket and sanity will thank you. Your day is about celebrating the love between the two of you. Guests who have RSVPed yes to your wedding, are attending not because they want to see you put on the most glamorous wedding ever but because they want to celebrate you.
2) Make sure your vendors are being taken care of. Make sure your photographer, your videographer, your wedding planner etc. all get a chance to eat! They're the most important people helping you put together your special day.
3) Liaise with your coordinator and your vendors and know your "schedule" for the day. Unfortunately, we forgot that we were supposed to take Bride & Groom shots during cocktail hour, at one point I actually thought to myself "been roaming around for 30 mins now... people who say you don't have time to breathe at your own wedding are liars!". Little did we know our wonderful photographer, Rebecca, was looking for us everywhere... Good thing we managed to sneak in a few shots before dark!

Matt: Plan ahead plan ahead. There's nothing worse than leaving everything to the last minute. Have your honeymoon and getaway car planned and ready to go at least a week before your wedding, so you're not scrambling the day before.
Most of all, enjoy it all. The most helpful advice we got from friends was to sneak away for 5-10 minutes during the reception to soak it all in, we got to enjoy our little moment together in view of our reception!
