For our first Industry Influencer series we are excited to announce our interview with Allison from Engaged & Inspired today.
There were so many moments that lead me here, each of which built on top of each other and put me right where I am. But the short answer is that I became a part of this industry over 4 years ago when I started up a little blog called Engaged & Inspired. That blog gained some traction and, well, here we are!
Experiencing wedding days. So much goes into planning a wedding and it isn’t always easy for the couple, but when the ceremony starts and the festivities begin, well, nothing beats that moment.
I try not to look too far into trends. I try to create awesome weddings that are free of trends as I wouldn’t want a couple to look at their wedding photos 5 years later and have it outdated. That said, I’m totally loving the flowing organic trends that are happening with flowers right now, and the crazy amount of foliage. It was time for bouquets to loosen up and centerpieces to have a little bit of a raw edge to them.
I am lucky enough to work with so many couples who pull me out of my comfort zone and inspire me to create great designs in many color palettes. But my go to color palette always involves gold, bright colors (who doesn’t love fuchsia?!) or a little hint of blush pink or mint green.
Humm. I think about this a lot seeing as I do a lot of weddings at the venue I was married at. I would love to say that my personal wedding style was something bold and daring, but I tend to heavily gravitate toward soft colors, romantic lines and whimsical details. I just love the timeless look of simple and beautiful wedding that isn’t overdone with details.
There are so many good ones! I can’t just pick one.
Air of Affection – Wedding Invitation
Until Ever After – Foil Stamped Wedding Invitation
Floral Dreams – Wedding Invitations
Enjoy it. I’ve worked with a few brides (and honestly, I was one myself) that obsessed over the details and had a very specific look in mind when it came to designing and setting up the details. I have always found that being that type of bride are really hard to make happy. You have to plan everything down to the detail and then literally let it all go on the day of. The more you micro-manage and care about every single inch of your wedding, you won’t be able to enjoy it like you should. Letting it all go and just being in that moment with the people you love, that is what a wedding is all about. Sometimes that gets a bit lost in all the details! So really, enjoy it!
We’ve fallen head over heels for Pantone Mauve Mist, an ethereal mix of lavender and light pink. It adds a different twist on the traditional romantic palette and works across classic and modern wedding invitations and save the dates. Pair it with a little (or a lot) of gold details and it’s sure to be a sweet soiree.
This week’s color, Pantone Mauve Mist, is a hue that would work equally well for a summer or fall wedding. The toned down pink with a hint of lavender, looks fresh and airy when paired with whites and crisp green, or can be more subdued when paired with a palette of deep neutrals.
Abbie and Matt will be married on July 12, 2014 and today she is sharing her inspiration behind her wedding invitation choice.
Invitations convey the tone of your wedding and give your guests a glimmer of your style as well. When picking out invitations, we wanted to make sure that we found one that complemented both of our personalities and showcased our wedding’s aura.
Below are our top four picks for our winery wedding:
I love how these invitations fold out like a book. Their rustic appeal also complemented our wedding’s venue (a winery) perfectly. If we had purchased these invitations, I most likely would have added in our wedding color by customizing the black writing for Tiffany blue.
I was drawn to these invitations by the overall fancier feel that they seem to take on. These invitations have a beautiful damask pattern that I am constantly coveting. I also love that they can be customized to our wedding color (Tiffany blue) if desired. Finally, the ability to use pocket folds with them makes them extra desirable in that they automatically showcase a fancier vibe.
This invitation & response card set completely stole my heart. Honestly, if the wedding was only about me, this probably would have been the one ordered. They are fancy and fun at the same time. I am in love with the fact that they can be used with pocket folds (I believe that they make any invitation a lot more glamorous). However, they did not fully fit the future husband’s personality or our wedding colors in a way that I loved so I had to pass. That said, I am hoping to use some of the Effervescent Sparkle pieces somewhere else in our wedding as I find them so very beautiful. They remind me so much of the chandelier that will be hung above us as we get married and would add a fantastic touch somewhere later on in our wedding paper journey.
These invitations and response cards screamed out to me as a perfect fit. They have the perfect combination of classic appeal with modern characteristics. The invitations are unique in that they fold like a book (something not typical of most that we receive). They are also a completely fabulous representation of our wedding’s overall theme: rustic chic. I love that we are also able to utilize more of our engagement pictures with this invitation and response card set. In addition, I’m a complete sucker for anything that is monogram-esque (the front cover of these lovely pieces are perfect!). Furthermore, once made with our wedding colors, it came to showcase both our personalities and our wedding style perfectly. We are ecstatic with the finished product and I cannot wait to put them all together for our guests!
