Entries in autumn wedding (1)


autumn inspiration

autumn is my favorite season of the year. it is the season of abundance, boasting deep colors, fibrous textures and a bountiful harvest. 

needless to say, when tina and reed chose an autumn date for their wedding i was thrilled.  the bride and groom wanted their intimate wedding, hosting 25 people, to be part classic, part elegant, a little bit rustic and excessively rich in detail.  combining the splendor of the season with raw northwest textures, locally harvested flowers and vegetables and luxuriously chic fabrics created the perfect ambience for this couture autumn wedding.

this posting will showcase a bit of the design process featuring the color palette and some  of my water-colored sketches i used to propose my ideas to my client. the next entry will have the images from the actual wedding itself.
