I'm putting some of our "real wedding" projects on hold because Halloween is so soon, but I don't want you to think that our actual wedding isn't the main event!
I thought I'd give you a quick peak at how I'm imagining our wedding day, starting with our colors.
Despite my chronic indecisiveness, choosing the color story for our wedding was a pretty simple task. I knew I wanted colors that would carry through the airy, fun, almost whimsical feeling that I'd like our wedding day to possess. I wanted something modern but not too "out there."
I didn't have to go far to find the inspiration for our color scheme:
In fact, I get to see our colors every day!
I know it's not the greatest picture of my kitchen, but if you look closely you can see our wedding colors. The walls are a beautiful pale, minty aqua and there are plenty of red accents. This has been my favorite color combination for as long as I can remember. I love that while it's a modern palette, it wouldn't be out of place in a vintage setting.
Can you tell that I love these colors together?
Immediately I typed "Aqua and red weddings" into a Google image search. The images that I found made me gasp! I was hooked. Thank goodness Mr. D liked the combination, too!
So, without further ado, meet the colors of our wedding, aqua and red:
I put together a quick inspiration board of some of my favorite examples of the colors together.

I'm so excited to be able to incorporate my favorite colors into our wedding and I think they'll look beautiful in our venue's garden setting. Also, I'm loving the buttons... do I smell a motif?
How did you come up with your color scheme? Was it an easy decision?
