Color Me Beautiful: Parisian Stripes

Comments: 0

Oh, Paris, the city d’amour! There’s just something so classic and romantic about Parisian stripes.  Reminiscent of old black and white films, glamorous ladies, and the streets of France, black and white stripes can add elegance and edge to your wedding.  Since they do tend to make a bold statement, we recommend choosing just a few elements to incorporate this chic pattern into.

Parker and Scott’s Memorial Day Wedding

Comments: 0

Easton Events

Parker and Scott were married at Grace Episcopal church the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Having grown up attending Christmas Eve service at Grace Episcopal and Christmas day at Keswick Hall, Parker always knew where she wanted to be married! With picture perfect may weather and a room filled with whites and pinks the night could not have been more magical.

Color Me Beautiful: Color Blocking

Comments: 0

premier event planner

The bold hues of summer continue this fall with saturated color blocking everywhere!  We love the combination of two bold solids cozying up together. The key to not looking messy?  Keep it tailored and avoid heavy makeup.

We think this modern trend lends itself well to wedding details, decor, even wedding party attire.  Choose two strong colors, or three if they are within the same color family, and find places within your decor to align them in a striking way.  Keep everything else neutral.  Or incorporate the trend by choosing color blocked shoes, bridesmaid dresses, or paper goods.

Color Me Beautiful: Summer Berries

Comments: 0

wedding inspired

The season for ripe, juicy berries is upon us and we are getting inspired by their bright hues and delicious sweetness.  From raspberries atop a five-tiered wedding cake and strawberry-garnished cocktails to baskets of berries as a parting favor, these fruit concoctions will add a fresh, summery flavor to any soiree. Berries aren’t just for eating either; we love them styled in bouquets and centerpieces.

Color Me Beautiful: Come Sail Away

Wedding inspired Virginia

Summer weddings on the sea are some of the most gorgeous events.  With the rolling waves and soft beaches as a backdrop, not a lot can obscure the beauty of a nautical wedding.  We love subtle nods to the sailing life like groomsmen in Sperry Top-Siders or an anchor imprinted on an invitation or program.

A beautiful (and sweet!) alternative to flowers, fruit can act as a colorful addition to a wedding bouquet, boutonniere, or tablescape.  In-season citrus and peaches in the summer or apples and pears in autumn and winter bring a fresh, natural vibe to an event.  And who doesn’t love a few juicy berries atop a beautiful wedding cake or in sweet, personalized containers for a delicious send-off at the end of the night?

Color Me Beautiful: For the Love of Lavender

Comments: 0

Easton Events

As spring begins to bloom, we can’t help but be inspired by one of nature’s prettiest gifts: lavender.  Soft and delicate, lavender is both aromatically enticing and aesthetically pleasing.  We love seeing this color incorporated into spring tabletops and flowy gowns.

Color Me Beautiful: Art Deco

Comments: 0

Easton Events

Linear prints, geometric shapes, and clean design are all emphasized in the art deco style that we so love for 2012. Originating around the time of the flapper, art deco has come to symbolize modern sculptural design as seen in the Chrysler Building from the late 1920’s to the Etro runway in 2012.  Art deco continues to influence the event and wedding worlds in embellished gowns, t-strap heels, and styled tablescapes.  What’s not to love?

Color Me Beautiful: Pastel Palette

Just in time for a fresh spring color palette, the Elie Saab 2012 Couture collection revealed a wide array of rainbow-hued pastels.  We are seeing baby pinks, soft yellows, and light blues making appearances in gowns, heels, and florals for spring.  To keep your pastels looking modern, we suggest pairing a softer color with a brighter (dare we say, neon!) shade, like mint green and bold coral.
