E is for Emerald Green



Good Afternoon! Earlier this week I met with a super sweet new client, Karen, to discuss her wedding colors and style.  My initial instruction is always to let your color pallet come from inspiration in your own life.  If you take a look at the colors of the dresses in your closet, the throw pillows on your couch and the art on your walls, you will get a big hint at what you love.  You can then translate that onto your Dream Board. Karen is a gardener and loves so many different flowers and colors it's hard for her to narrow it down.  Today while I was walking my pups, Hank and Luna, in the beautiful 70 degree weather I spotted a gorgeous tree with no flowers but gorgeous vines.  It's leaves are a brilliant green that screams "Spring is Coming!".  I was inspired to put together a green collection that Karen, and I'm sure lots of other brides, will love...
