Winter Beauty Color Palette

Happy Monday Pearlies!  Today I wanted to do a continuation of winter color palettes!  I just love showing unexpected palettes around the seasons.  This one embraces colors in nature coming together to create a beautiful natural element to a cooler weather outdoor affair.  I love the use of wood, metal, and glass with just a touch of colors to brighten things up.  Hope it inspires all of you that have upcoming winter weddings to get out there, and make it all your own.

Baby It’s Cold Outside Color Palette

Morning Pearlies!  And happy Friday!  It’s been a minute since I’ve done a color palette, and I figured I should continue on with the Christmas Spirit driving me around these days and dust off this oldie but goodie styled shoot from the PPB vault and make this off-the-beaten-path Christmas color palette…  Don’t just think the holiday’s means red and green.  Although there are a great use of those colors included in this gorgeous feature, there are also some awesome bright hues intertwined to make it one of a kind.  Be inspired…I know I am.

Thanks again for tuning in today you guys!  See ya next week…

Free Printable for your Christmas Themed Wedding Dessert Table

Good morning Pearlies!

With December 1st coming about tomorrow, it’s really got me in the Christmas spirit.  Well actually, I’ve been in the “Christmas Spirit” ever since November 10th, when one of our beloved Chicago radio stations started playing Christmas music.  Although, I do have to admit, it was kind of interesting driving around jamming to White Christmas when it was still up in the 70’s out here.  Regardless, now the chill is starting to set in a bit more, and rain, snow…or sunny and 70…I’m embracing it.

I also LOVE to offer FREE stuff here at PPB, and I haven’t done one of these in a while, so here’s a cute little free printable sign for your upcoming Christmas wedding…or just your home holiday dessert table.  I picture it in a sweet ornate white frame…just print it out, pop it in, and voila!  Instant table pretty!

Then Comes Marriage… Industrial Meets Natural Real Boho Wedding~ Trey and Laura

ker_1043

Hey hey!  Happy Monday Pearlies!  Today’s wedding is pretty much my dream wedding, and I’m so excited to share it with you!  The sweet couple has an awesome story and their fun and carefree personalities completely shine through in Every. Single. Image.  The bride Laura was sweet enough to share some details on how this momentous occasion came about.  Here’s what she had to say:

Trey and I met at a Halloween party 5 years ago. I stole his heart dressed up in a homemade Paula Deen costume. Trey was a zombie. I knew he was the one on our 3rd date when he surprised me by making baked ziti from scratch and roasting gourmet s’mores by his fireplace. It helped he had an adorable dog named Zoë that he treated like a queen. Living in Austin, some of our favorite things to do include seeing live music, finding awesome food trucks to eat at and being outdoors while enjoying fine specialty cocktails on a patio somewhere. Trey proposed at a quaint little spot called Canyon Of The Eagles. They have an observatory there and a meteor shower was in the forecast. Star gazed, Trey popped the question that night. From there we got to plan our laid-back dreamy bohemian wedding.

Best advice from Bride – create an epic playlist to get ready with your girls day of. Also, take a shot of tequila before walking down aisle.
