Summer wedding season is in full force here in beautiful Nova Scotia and I couldn't be happier! I love seeing what this year's brides and their vendors are coming up with for gorgeous ceremonies and receptions. I've been feeling inspired lately by one of my favourite summer hues - peach! I'm crazy about all things peach, from flowers and bridesmaid dresses to juice and pies. Absolutely love it all.

In this colour schemed, I've paired some peachy/blushy colours with some shades of olive green for a natural and minimalist look. The end effect is fresh and airy yet elegant. With rose gold so popular right now, it's extremely easy to find little trinkets to decorate with if you decide to DIY in this colour scheme, so that's a bonus!

It's all in the details:

  • An ivory cake wrapped in olive leaves
  • A peach peony bouquet
  • Rose gold charger plates

This summery delight of a colour scheme came to me as a request last month, and I'm so happy to finally be sharing it with you all tonight! When one of my beloved readers suggested a palette of navy, magenta, blush and cream, I was all over it. In fact, these colours are quite similar to what I ended up choosing for my own wedding a couple years ago!

Magenta is so fun and feminine as a wedding colour, and paired with subtle creams and blushes, it really pops in a colour scheme. Navy, as you may already know, is one of my favourite staples and I really think you can't go wrong with it.

It's all in the details:

  • A magenta and blush bouquet tied with a navy bow
  • A simplistic naked cake embellished with beautiful florals
  • Intricate navy and magenta details on cream-coloured stationery

Back in the fall of 2015, I was working on a my Disney series of wedding themes. I created colour palettes for many of the most popular Disney princesses (though there are a few I have yet to get to!). In November, I created a Belle themed collage in red and gold and if you look back on that post you'll see that I was very excited about the live-action film coming out in a year and a half. Well, it's a year and a half later and that movie was released today! I can't believe how quickly the time has passed!

To honour today's release of the live-action Beauty and the Beast, I've put together a new Disney colour scheme in shades of blue and gold. The overall feel of this inspiration board is quite different than the last - it's still elegant but feels more airy and subtle.

It's all in the details:

  • The "Be Our Guest" entrance sign
  • Gold candlestick centrepieces
  • A stunning blue and gold cake perched on a stack of books

This summery colour scheme is another reader request and I'm so excited to be sharing it with you. The goal for this palette was to bring coral and gold together in a fun and unique way. The bride presented me with the coral and gold leaves pictured in the photo below and let me run with it. I'm so pleased with the final result! This is one of those perfect summer colour schemes for the bold couple wanting a touch of elegance.

It's all in the details:
  • Gold polka-dotted vases
  • Coral and gold abstract triangles lining a white cake
  • A stunning bouquet of coral lilies

As summer slowly approaches, I'm getting busier and busier with special requests! This request came to me from a bride looking for a pastel blue, blush, navy and gold colour palette. These colours came together quite nicely and with Serenity and Rose Quartz as last year's Pantone colours of the year, it was pretty easy to find some inspiration.

My favourite part of this colour scheme is how it has these rich elements like gold and navy that kind of ground the look of the palette overall. The light blues and pinks don't end up looking washed out and they're giving an elegant flair.

It's all in the details:

  • A delicate gold jewelry box
  • Bold navy sequinned table cloths
  • Blush and navy stones set in gold
