Iced Coffee Wedding Inspiration | Pantone’s Top 10 Colors for 2016
categories: Floral Inspiration, Reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration

Iced Coffee, one of Pantone’s top 10 colors for 2016, is a color we like to call the ultimate neutral wedding color-this soft and creamy hue can play the starring role or support brighter & deeper colors and it’s just a more modern version of the chocolate brown that we saw a few years ago. Grab your favorite cup of creamy cold brew and enjoy our iced coffee wedding inspiration!

Pantone describes Iced Coffee as a transitional color that will take us through the seasons…With its natural earthy quality, the softness and subtlety of Iced Coffee creates a stable foundation when combined with the rest of this season’s palette.

We’re digging the many tones of iced coffee and abundant sparkles these bridesmaids are wearing!

Shannon and Randy’s pink and white Tucson wedding was an outdoor affair that embraced the perfect Tucson weather and legendary sunsets. You’re going to love the elegant decor, breathtaking views and sweet color palette.

Shannon’s bouquet was comprised of gorgeous pink and white peonies and included mementos from each of the couple’s grandmothers

Pink and White Tucson Wedding Ceremony: The couple wed at the Secret Garden Lawn where a stone fireplace served as the backdrop, white drapes were installed to create an intimate atmosphere and peonies and flower petals softened the overall look

Pink and White Tucson Wedding Reception: Decorated in blush, ivory and gold, both the cocktail hour and dinner reception were located on the patio; the evening featured sweet pink and white floral arrangements, wine influenced details, and a gorgeous 4 tier cake. We think the wooden box containing blank wooden hearts and markers for guests to give advice to the bride and groom is such a neat touch!

We are so in love with the bouquet and boutonniere designed by Frostings Event Design and Rentals; not only did this full-service company design the flowers for the wedding, they also designed the entire event and provided the rental items!

A Fun Destination Wedding | Tucson Bride & Groom

Kristi and Michael, who hail from Texas, focused on having a fun destination wedding in Tucson and they succeeded! The couple began the weekend with a southwest inspired welcome dinner that boasted a food truck, signature cocktails, a DJ and lawn games.

We really love the thoroughly Southwest theme of the welcome dinner- the sarapes used as table runners provide festive color and desserts such as  tequila lime cupcakes made it extra fun.fun destination wedding _Tucson Bride and Groom_Amanda Rockafellow Photography_Rehearsal dinnerfun destination wedding _Tucson Bride and Groom_Amanda Rockafellow Photography_Rehearsal dinner (2) fun destination wedding _Tucson Bride and Groom_Amanda Rockafellow Photography_Rehearsal dinner (3)

The revelry was followed by a completely beautiful wedding day that featured a color palette of muted metallics and pops of raspberry.

We have a serious crush on Kristi’s bouquet!

Fun Destination Wedding Ceremony: We wrote our own vows and did a salt ceremony-blending of two salts as one…our ceremony was very touching because my mom passed away 10 days before the wedding. We had a tribute chair for her and honored her throughout the event.

Fun Destination Wedding Reception Details: Our guests signed individual rocks that were placed in a large vase as our guestbook. We had an outdoor seated dinner and the cake cutting and first dances (including my husband and his daughter) were also done outside.  We had [our guests] lead us inside for the dance party with sparklers.

Adding to the fun destination wedding weekend was a post-wedding brunch where guests and the couple noshed and reminisced about the previous day’s events. Watch the couple’s wedding film to see more of this fun destination wedding (there’s funny right off the bat, sweetness around 0:41, and joy throughout!)

Congratulations Kristi and Michael and thank you for sharing your fun destination wedding with us (Kristi and Michael’s wedding was featured in our Winter Spring issue- click here to see the feature online)!

Wedding Favor Idea: Annie B’s Caramels
categories: Cakes and Sweets, favor and gift ideas, Stuff We Love!

Recently, we were lucky enough to experience first-hand the unbelievable deliciousness of Annie B’s Caramels. You already know we’re huge proponents of edible wedding favors (honestly, who needs another mini picture frame or seashell soap???) so Annie B’s was spot on by sending us their gooey, buttery, and richly satisfying caramels. They generously sent us a tin for our enjoyment and we recommend you go ahead and get one for yourself but keep in mind, Annie B’s offers adorable 10 piece gift bags- a fabulous wedding favor idea!

Trust us, your guests will heart them (the caramels have little to no chance of lasting beyond the ride home) and you’ll be remembered for giving wedding favors that everyone loves rather than pretends to love!

Wedding Favor Idea _Tucson Bride and Groom_Annie Bs Caramels (3)

Here’s the big daddy tin of caramels; ours came with chocolate, original and sea salt. Sea salt was a favorite among the adults in our house- it actually has delightful flakes of sea salt throughout- and the kids loved the original flavor. They’re probably hoarding some in their rooms right now!

Wedding Favor Idea _Tucson Bride and Groom_Annie Bs Caramels (3)

One of the secrets to Annie B’s perfect flavor is that the owners promise to maintain the cozy family-owned culture and careful small-batch cooking that make Annie B’s caramels and popcorns so delicious. The story about how Annie B’s current owners acquired the company is the cutest…read about Tom & Carol and Amanda & Justin right here.

There’s not much more to say about Annie B’s other than, this is a great wedding favor idea and ORDER YOURS NOW!!! Did we shout that at you? Oh yes, we sure did.
