Color Inspiration: Vibrant Violet

May 26, 2011 / 0 Comments

If you love purple, you are going to love this color palette. Deep shades of violet  lightly accented with white and peach combine to form a rich and vibrant color scheme.  We are pretty sure guests walked into this ballroom and said, “wow“.  View this entire wedding, Going to the Chapel, in the Preview issue, page16.

From the bride, Lauren:
We exchanged our own vows that we personally wrote in front of 125 of our friends and family with the most spectacular view as a backdrop. The weather was so incredible, you could see for miles…. it almost looked like a fake background. It couldn’t have been more perfect!

We were going to get married in September and wanted to use fall colors.  I loved the  green, orange and yellow color combo so much, we kept it the same for our August wedding.

Our favors were Colorado blue spruce tree seedlings (the same tree seedling that we used to plant in our tree planting ceremony).  We attached thank you notes with instructions to plant the tree and watch it grow, the same way our marriage will with time.Our favorite detail was having our dogs by our side.  We couldn’t have a wedding ceremony without our two dogs (kids), Kona and Buddy.


-Having Dan’s sister marry us made it much more personal than hiring someone to get to know us to perform the biggest ceremony of our lives.

-We performed a “tree planting ceremony” symbolizing the roots we planted on our wedding day and the nurturing and growth we will contribute to our relationship as time passes.

-My mom lives in Hawaii so she arranged to have my favorite flower (Hawaiian orchids) shipped in for the wedding.

-The bridesmaids were allowed to choose their own dresses as long as it was a shade of green.  They ended up working out perfectly!!!

-Instead of welcome bags, we made “Gondola Survival Kits” for the ride back down the gondola after the reception.  They included little flashlights, personalized match books, chocolate covered coffee beans from a local candy shop, a bottle of water, mints and small shooters of Bailey’s Irish Cream.

Our inspiration for this creamy color palette came from several weddings featured in the Preview issue.  Pure white accented with shades of beige, deep chocolate and light green create an understated elegance.  The perfect color palette for a chic mountain wedding.
