TUESDAY WEDDING TIP! by Utah Wedding Photographer, Melissa Kelsey

WEDDING COLORS I shot Erika and Porter's wedding on Friday.  They were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.  We were walking around, doing shots of just the two of them when I saw this wedding color palette inspiration.  This post will be a teaser for Porter and Erika and Tuesday Tip all in one!

 Erika and Porter's wedding colors were sage green and chocolate, which I always love since my brand color is apple green.  However, this grey wall and the yellow leaves just struck me and reminded me of the next hot wedding color-yellow.  Yellow with chocolate or yellow and apple green would be scrumptious.  I'm a big fan of a fabulous pop color with an elegant neutral.

This photo inspired me to do a Wedding Colors tip.  So, here you go!


So, sophisticated.  I can see this with monograms for a modern, elegant look.  There's a scene in the movie, Thorougly Modern Milly, with Julie Andrews (a must see) with a fabulous dancing and singing scene where the room decor and all the outfits are all in some variation of yellow and grey.  More fabulous inspiration!

 Some other totally cool, somewhat unexpected wedding color combos:


This is a combination you don't see a lot and I can see it busting onto the scene in the near future.  It's fresh and would work fabulously with a modern or vintage theme.  Can't you just see a 50s pinup era theme with this wedding color combo?

This would be a gorgeous, unique color combination for a fall or winter wedding.  You could incorporate peacock feathers and even bring in some robin eggs (faux, of course) to bouquets, centerpieces, and decorations.  This brings to mind English hunting style, plaid Ralph Lauren scarves, and riding boots.  Oh, scrumptious!  It was really hard to find photos of what I described (same thing happened when I was planning my wedding!), but thankfully I found some that have the peacock and teal idea thanks to http://tastefullyentertaining.blogspot.com
