plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

How can you not love this color combination?

Betsy White

There is just something so modern and elegant about that majolica blue.  Dramatic, yet fresh.  Bold, but fun. Swoon. And I’m a sucker for slate.  Slate is such a great accent color and I wish more brides would use it.   That warm olive color?  It looks so delicious against the slate and majolica blue.

I’m begging you, please, PLEASE use these colors for your wedding and send me photos so I can lust over them.

And, for the record, I love our color choices and have no intention of changing them.



    This has been my inspiration picture since I got engaged in May! AHHHHHHHH! You just completely validated my vision!

  2. I mean literally. This. Exact. Picture.

    I have been looking for the perfect (affordable) navy dresses for the girls. And had to convince Steve that olive green is a fabulous color for a wedding! Mainly whites and greens for flowers!

    Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

    You have no idea how freaking excited this just made me!

  3. Oh and I originally saw it on Southern Weddings!

    I’m in love with dark blue and ALL shades of grey right now. For a girl who’s not even engaged, I spend a significant amount of time thinking about my someday wedding!
