Year of the Wine

Well, lovely ladies, 2014 has been a year of magnificent celebrations and as we lift our glasses to ring in 2015, how about holding the bubbly and instead trying a robust red? Yes, I am so excited about the just-announced Pantone Color of the Year for 2015…Marsala.

Pantone marsala

This luxurious shade of red is named for the wine bearing the same name produced in the region surrounding the Italian city of Marsala in Sicily. And if the thought of strolling through Sicilian vineyards with your groom-to-be doesn’t conjure up visions of passion and romance…I don’t know what does.

Bouquet marsala

Not only is this hue rich, earthy, and bold, it can be used as a strong statement color (think bridesmaids gowns, centerpieces, and ties for the groomsmen), or as an accent color played up against softer tones of creams, peaches and greens. If you don’t want to entirely incorporate the shade into your bridal palette, why not try just a taste of Marsala with your shoes, nails or lipstick? Just a little can pack quite a punch.

Kelton and Alex

The Big Picture

Lovelies, I have to say, I have been blessed to work with such sweet families and down to earth brides, and Kelton and her groom, Alex, were no exception. From the moment we began planning it was clear to me that Kelton was enjoying every minute of the process – and that made it a dream event for me! This family was so gracious and their love and joy for the happy couple was palpable on the big day.

All the Details

These Auburn fans didn’t let game day interrupt their chosen date to wed, they simply offered the perfect solution: tuning in on the big screen during the reception! This was a huge hit for all the Tiger fans in attendance. And a “traditional” groom’s cake? Not for Alex, who insisted on offering guests his sweet tooth favorite: Krispy Kreme donuts. But don’t let the idea of football and glazed crullers fool you, the reception was anything but casual, with gorgeous floral arrangements dressing pretty much everything in sight.

Yes, the courtyard at the Fairhope Inn looked like a Secret Garden and the fairy tale effect was sealed when Kelton and Alex departed in a horse-drawn carriage, underneath clouds of white serpentine confetti tossed by the guests – a beautiful exit for a beautiful couple! Take a look…

The New Face of Wed With Style

Hello, lovelies! Autumn is officially here and while we’re still waiting on that first crisp chill in the air down here in Lower Alabama, I am loving the sight of mums on front porches, mountains of pumpkins at the farm stands, and of course, the breathtaking photos I’ve been browsing online of harvest-themed weddings and fall fetes.

 

I find this season to be full of inspiration, and over the past few weeks we at Wed With Style have harbored all of that creative energy into our new website. Today, I am proud to introduce you to our gorgeous new site and I hope that you will fall in love, just as I have. Please take a look and be sure to browse the galleries, including the items available for rental.
