If you're anything like me, you absolutely love the holidays! I honestly can't pick a favorite. Halloween is super fun with all the crazy costumes and warm colors that fill the air. Thanksgiving just gives me all the good feels. I get to spend time with my family and the air starts to chill just a bit. Then Christmas comes around, and my inner five year old just squeals inside and screams "S A N T A !" Think Buddy from Elf excitement!
A couple of weeks ago, Adriana from Beloved Events + Design planned and coordinated a styled photo shoot that made me SO excited for all the fall colors. It wasn't "holiday themed," but you could totally use this color scheme to inspire you for the holidays!
Fernwood Cellars hosted us at their lovely property. It's a beautiful venue that's tucked away in the woods, and you don't even feel like you're 30 minutes from the bustling city of San Jose. Well there's no cell reception, so that helps! ;)
I definitely think that this table setting from William's Party Rental is an awesome inspiration for your table setting for any holiday events. This navy color scheme is a strong base to really make an impact, but it can go with all sorts of different colors to match your taste.
If you're someone of thinking of getting married in the "off season," think of all the deep, rich colors you could play with. Sarah from Dubon Floral Design used florals that played with the rich colors. The flowers she used were so pretty! As you know, I'm all about making a twist on the traditional, and she totally did that with these GORGEOUS floral designs!
So ladies and gentleman, think about all the fun colors you could use. Stretch that imagination and email me, so I can photograph your dream day!!
Adriana and everyone who made this awesome photo shoot happen-- thank you so much for your hard work and amazing creativity. I feel so lucky to be around people like you who like to push the envelope and go outside of tradition. I can't wait to work with you again.
