Pinterest has come ALIVE with color! 2014 is set to be bold and bright in the wedding world! The pantone color of the year is…..orchid! And we are excited!! Blush, pale pinks and nudes are still set to be a popular choice, but we are loving the orchid palette! Here are a few of our favorite examples that we have stumbled upon on Pinterest! 

This reception setup is stunning! Love the little sparkle in the linen!


This bouquet is to die for!!




The subtle touch of color in the menu is a nice touch with the simple gold accent.


How about this cake?


These details are all just so beautiful! We are very excited to see what our couple decide to do with this color palette! 

What do you think about this color choice for 2014?

I love this industry because it is a happy time and I meet some of the best people!  My right hand, assistant, Mel is originally from Mississippi but spent most of her time growing up here in Eastern NC. She is very creative and has a great eye for design. We make a wonderful team! We really enjoy what we do and I think it shows when we are there on your special day. We get our jobs done, help make dreams become realities…and have fun while we do it!


This one was near and dear to my heart. My little sister’s boyfriend at the time, Andrew, came to me and said he was planning to propose to my sister!! He had already asked my Father’s permission and was all set. He was originally thinking something on the beach, but the forecast wasn’t looking promising that whole week. He mentioned the aquarium and we both jumped into action! The staff at the Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium are great to work with. We played it off like we were just going to the Aquarium as a family, (I even brought our Mom along) and we timed it out perfectly! We had to be in front of the shipwreck by 12:35 to be able to witness the “scuba diving session”. My sister, Sara, was totally unsuspecting and so was my mother! The scuba divers jumped in and next thing you know everyone in the packed aquarium was staring and saying “awwwww”. Sara turned to look and Andrew took that moment to get down on one knee!! It was SO great!! Here are a few pics I managed to snap! Enjoy!

They are planning to get married at The Islander Suites October 2014.
