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.
