April Showers...

            Hooray!  Today is finally a sunny, warm, spring day…I am so thankful that the skies are clear and happy! J Lately we have been totally bombarded by April showers and I am certainly hoping that all the rain will positively affect the May flowers.
            One of the most whimsical ways to infuse some style into your wedding is by whole-heartedly embracing the season that your ‘big day’ falls in.  Now I am not talking about candy jars with faux-hands sticking out of them for the fall (unless you are aiming for a frightening Halloween bash) but gathering inspiration from the gorgeous golden tones streaming through the autumn trees…looking at the early blooms of the spring to decide your color palette!
I absolutely adore the months of May and June because there are such wonderful changes occurring outside…bees are buzzing and flowers are blooming!  Beside the yellow tones of pollen swirling in the air, there are such incredibly lush colors surrounding you…like bright magentas, mixtures of greens, and the pure blue of the sky.  Take some of your favorite shades from outdoors and blend them into your celebration. 
Want to pull more from your chosen season…how about selecting a wonderful bloom such as the cherry blossom and creating a vivid floral inspired reception?!  Be certain to look below at what we have come up with!  What are some of your ideas for spring weddings…please feel free to share with us! Oh and get outside to enjoy the scenery while there is a break in the rain! J
