Paul + Carolyn, Wedding Day Tips from a recently married couple!

We spent a glorious summer evening with the lovely Paul and Carolyn a few weeks ago. Besides having impeccable style and being all around #couplegoals, this sweet duo has also been together for 10 years and married since 2016! They met in college and when Carolyn went to see Paul and his band play a gig, he shouted her out in front of everyone! They've been by each other's sides ever since and have a sweet fur baby named Tucker. Even though they were married a few years ago in Houston, TX they were kind enough to offer us some major wedding day tips for all our future brides! 

According to Carolyn the best ways to make the most of your wedding day are to:

  • Create an environment for everyone to enjoy so think of it as more of a big party and celebration of your love! 
  • Dance with your guests instead of a formal greeting! 
  • Make a traditional wedding unique and fun with your own twists.
  • Confetti. Lots of confetti! 

Bonus: Have your husband's band play at your wedding!

Styled Sunday - A Springtime Pantone Inspired Shoot

Back at the end of 2015, we put together a shoot showcasing the 2016 Pantone Color of The Year. We were so excited when Pantone, for the first time ever, announced not one, but two colors for 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity. When it comes to the more feminine tones, we're big lovers of the more muted and matte variations so I knew INSTANTLY that highlighting Rose Quartz and Serenity in a styled wedding shoot had to happen. This spring, we hope you fall in love with this dazzling display of styled simplicity.
