Color Story of the Month
Blue is the most popular wedding color. We are departing from egg shell blue and driving a very saturated blue.
Think cobalt, Yves Klein. The type of blue that pops up in Miro and Calder paintings. A blue that can be found on the streets of the Mediterranean, Latin America, and North Africa. We paired blue with a clay pink. The pink you find in rocks, sunsets and wild roses. Together, an effervescent Sahara mood that can be transcribed to so many wedding themes from Ojai to New York City to the Mediterranean to Arabia.

Emotion | It has positive affects on the mind and the body. As the color of the spirit, it invokes rest and can cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming and exude feelings of tranquility. It can be cooling in nature, and helps with balance and self-expression. Electric or brilliant blues become dynamic and dramatic, an engaging color that expresses exhilaration.
