The Colors that Inspired it All

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?


  1. Oh my gosh! This is one of my fave combos Miss Doxie! Did you see the paint chips I pulled (entry from Sunday?)

  2. I did! it made me smile because I have aqua and red paint chips that I carry around in my purse :D
