Purple, Aqua, and Chartreuse


You may have learned by now that I have a soft spot in my heart for unexpected color combinations.  Today’s board was inspired by the photo in the top left – a whimsical garden palette of purple and white with hints of aqua and chartreuse.

Clockwise from top left: le souk via the style files, Love and Splendor, the Knot, Marisa Holmes via The Bride’s Cafe, Carrie Patterson via The Bride’s Cafe, Trista Lerit Photography, Kenzie Kate, A Little Sussy, Impressionen, Amy Squires Photography, Wisteria via White Aisle, the Knot

How cute is that puppy?  His face just makes me giggle.

As is usually the case, after creating a board, you come across something completely perfect!  These invitations by Laura Hooper are absolutely exquisite.

And this floral composition photographed by Kim Calakoutis would be amazing with this color scheme!

  1. I love it! My favorite color is purple and the bf’s favorite is blue, and I think this color combo would be a great way for us to use colors that we both love (instead of me running off with purple and hot pink…what a girly girl I am!)

  2. I’m super pumped for your week of purple. A client just informed me yesterday we’re doing purple for their wedding, so I will be following along and saving inspiration for her.

  3. This makes me think of the Northern California coast. You can have a beach wedding with this, but it’s such an unexpected color combination.

    You know girls, some fun weekly themes might be regions. Planning a wedding by region, etc. The Northwest, Southwest, California, Midwest, Northeast, East, Southeast, oh the possibilities! It could go on for weeks. You could plan a wedding for every state!

    My wedding was all shades of purple, Tiffany blue, and black and white polka dots. It was fun and playful. I mixed in a little bit of hollywood glam for another spark of interest.

    I love this color combo! I am going to use this one for my wedding! And yes, more about those shoes. I would love to find them.

  6. Yes! Please tell me where you found those shoes! I am getting married in March and haven’t had any luck on finding green shoes!

    Hey!! Love those green shoes. I’d love them for a wedding of my own in October. Do you know where they can be found?
