Jeannette and Matthew had a special story that they wanted incorporated into their wedding invitation – they were getting married the same day their parents had in 1983 (Sapp), and 1989 (Carco). The live oak tree on the invitation tells the story in its branches, and the brown and green color palette blend perfectly.
Drumroll……..I know you’ve been waiting for it……..the 2013 Pantone Color report for Fall! Because we’re already working on our fall wardrobe, right? No, me either. Anyways, here is the report for your future reference, as well as some shopping ideas (this year, the palette is for both men and women).
If you haven’t already seen the spring color trends on Pinterest, the Today Show, or various fashion blogs, emerald has been chosen as Pantone’s color of the year. A color that anyone can look good in! Here is the full report:

Creagh and Timothy’s invitation was my first one where I actually worked with a wedding planner, rather than a bride. It was a fun and smooth process, which was probably helped by the fact that the wedding planner is a friend of mine. The bride wanted a simple and elegant design. The finished product is absolutely lovely:
As we are ALREADY nearing August and the end of summer, fall is just around the corner (seriously, this summer has FLOWN by!). Pantone has chosen some lovely colors for this fall’s fashion trends, which again include the color of the year, “Tangerine Tango.”
