WATERY AQUA and SUNSHINE YELLOW
Well, like all good things, my blogging days are coming to an end. My husband and I are moving to the Philadelphia area next week, so I'm sorry to say this will be my final blog post here on the Bride's Guide. After nearly 8 years working at Martha Stewart Weddings I’ve come to know and love so many talented colleagues, contributors, and photographers. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such talent and make so many amazing stories! For every photo shoot or real wedding I've worked on, we've developed boards just like the ones that I’ve been posting here to fine-tune our vision. If you’ve kept up with the past few months of posts, you’ll probably note that I tend to gravitate towards watery tones. So, as a last posting, it seemed fitting to follow suit and post a mix of sunny summertime yellow and watery aquas, a pairing I have always loved.
Starting next week, keep an eye out for more palettes made by my talented colleagues—they are sure to inspire! In the meantime, happy summer and a fond farewell!
