Happy Friday! Last in our series about Picking the Palette is some inspiration for pretty neutral weddings accented with bright colors. This is a very beautiful yet very easy color palette that is fun yet sophisticated. Use the accent color in beautiful or unexpected places like on your shoes, the sash on your dress, or in your floral arrangements. I have recently been loving grey and yellow weddings, but you can go with any neutral paired with a complimentary bright such as nude and pink, blush and navy, or beige and green.
From time to time, we will be featuring vendors that are known for being the best of the best. Our very first dream vendor is Jose Villa, photographer extraordinaire. He captures the unique feel of each and every event he shoots, and the result is a collection of photos that are breathtaking reflections of love, joy, and beautiful details. This post is going to be very photo-heavy because every single one of his images is absolutely to die for, and I simply couldn’t narrow it down any more than this. I’m going to let this small sampling of his work speak for itself, because it has a lot to say.
This bunting is so easy, you can make enough to decorate an entire room in a couple hours. We made this bunting for Mollie’s glow-in-the-dark neon party, and you can see in this picture how it was really a centerpiece of the decor. The bunting truly transformed this room into a party space. The best part? The whole project cost less than $20!
Steps: 1. Decide how long you want your bunting to be and how many triangles you need to cut out. We made about 100 yards to fill up three rooms, and had plenty left. We cut out three triangles from each sheet and spaced them about 3-5 inches apart, so we cut out about 450 triangles. That's about 140 sheets of paper!

This couple is just too darn cute for words. The bride beamed all day long, and the look on the groom’s face said it all. The wedding was a celebration of two very different cultures- the groom is French and the bride is Chinese. Language differences didn’t stop this from being one of the most beautiful and joyous events we’ve ever seen.
Tabletop decor gets a lot of attention during the wedding planning process, but not very many people give much thought to what goes on above the tablescape. High-impact overhead decor can transform a basic space into an unforgettable one. Cafe lights, florals, lanterns, fabric, and even ribbon can make your theme and vision come to life in a beautiful and sometimes more cost-effective way. Lights, paper lanterns, and ribbon are much cheaper than decking out the tabletop with sky-high centerpieces, and hanging vases require less flowers to make a statement than centerpieces do because they are so unexpected. When you bring decor upwards, it allows you to go more minimal on the table.
