Fall In Love…(Annie and Eric Part II)

My friends, Annie and Eric, find themselves continually enticed by what they’ve learned about having a destination wedding held in Mexico…That said, they are still considering staying local for an autumn wedding next year.

Wanting to give her a fair dose of inspiration – I created this board for her (below) to compare to the board I shared in my last entry.

While I absolutely adore traditional fall colors, I wanted to create a look that was a bit unexpected and special…worthy of the chic couple.

Taking a cue from warm tones of candlelight, I suggested a color palette of deep espresso, rich burnt oranges, softer apricot hues and champagne/ivory tones. Additionally complimenting those colors, I love the look of metallic gold and copper accents paired with bold peacock tints.

I told Annie that I saw copious amounts of candlelight, amber perimeter lighting and varied floral designs.

Autumn designs can look gorgeous with a more eclectic viewpoint – so incorporating varied woods, rusted urns and candle stands along with vintage metallic pieces would set the tone perfectly…Also, while we love the feel of a raw, rustic setting, we would also want this wedding to have an urban chic air about it – honouring the fantastic city we live in!

Whether they choose a Chicago autumn wedding or a tropical affair – Annie and Eric have plenty of style that will allow them to create the wedding of their dreams, perfectly suited for them.
