A Pop of Color Goes A Long Way!

A Pop of Color Goes A Long Way!

There are so many ways to incorporate color into your wedding and brides are doing it now more than ever! Before, brides were sticking to a basic two-color palette such as chocolate and ivory, red and black, or purple and silver. Today, adding additional pops of color can make all the difference in creating a vibrant color scheme.

Brides are steering away from traditional colors and heading straight for brilliant, bold colors! Recent trends are showing purples combined with blues, mint mixed with coral and lavender accented with an array of greens.

My advice about selecting colors for your wedding is to simply have fun with it! Pick up a few color swatches and see what goes together. And don’t limit your colors to just decor! Colors can be used all throughout your wedding; from incorporating hot pink accents to your departure vehicle all the way to having your bridesmaid’s cobalt blue bouquets match their shoes. Consider your venue with choosing your colors as well. If you know the carpet in your venue has an apple green hue, then consider the carpet when finalizing your colors. All and all, just have fun with it! Here are a few color trends that have been popular this year. Tell us what you think!

Featured Love :: Holley & Brent

Hi friends!  For Valentine’s Day 2014, I am so elated to share with you the love story of #TBB couple, Holley Thomas and Brent Johnson!  Holley and Brent are a super sweet, loving and adventurous couple (they love to travel!)  Take a peek at the story of how they met.

How We Met

Holley and Brent met in February 2012 while working at a local mental and behavioral health agency in Atlanta. Although they only worked together for a short amount of time, their brief interaction with each other left lasting impressions. Brent contacted Holley around the month of August with interest in booking a bounce house (Holley owns an inflatables company!) for his fraternity’s street festival, which was to be held the following month in September. Unfortunately, Brent never followed up with Holley about the bounce house. Holley (being Holley!), decided to ‘call Brent out’ on Facebook and ask him why she had not heard from him about the festival. Brent felt bad for ‘dropping the ball’ and decided to ask Holley out for dinner to Applebee’s.  This dinner created sparks and butterflies!  Months later, they knew they were truly in love when in January 2013, Holley decided to travel to the Delta Sigma Theta Centennial Celebration in Washington D.C. Brent missed Holley and Holley missed Brent! The two spent every free minute of Holley’s trip talking on the phone and discovering how much they truly loved each other. Their courtship continued until Brent popped the question!  Holley accepted Brent’s proposal and the couple is currently planning not one, not two, but three marriage celebrations in the summer of 2014!  We can’t wait to share their wedding story and images!
