Originally I pictured a rose gold, gold and white color scheme for my wedding. It would be perfectly wintery, not at all holiday and everything I ever dreamed of.  Things started to change towards the end of January 2013 (yes, only 5 weeks into my engagement).  First, West Elm, one of my favorite stores for home goods, started a “Pin it to Win it” sweepstakes featuring the color indigo. My mind started to waiver.

Indigo…how hip!

Then Rihanna wore the most incredible indigo dress to the 2013 Grammys, along with some phenomenal extensions, and a killer bod , oh and then there was the song. I absolutely loved the song. I Instagrammed it. My mind was officially changed.

Once I had decided on my color scheme, which was now white, indigo and silver, I had to think about the decor of our space.  Kyle and I had decided on “Black Tie Optional” as a style for the wedding.  Given that we aregetting married in (basically) a warehouse, I wanted to emphasize the juxtaposition of formal attire against an industrial background. I call it Bohemian Black Tie, I don’t know what you would call it.  You know what’s really hard sometimes? Distinguishing between rustic and bohemian. Enter, Emily Carter.  This woman, my florist, is a wedding-saver. She is so much more than a florist. I can’t tell you how many times I have mentioned something to her, for example using twine to tie the napkins at the table, and she has responded that my thought, while well intentioned, does not go with my overall scheme.

Thank you, Emily. You’re right. It doesn’t! I can’t wait to share the actual wedding day photos with you all, but for now here are some of the photos that inspired my wedding decor. So Bohemian Black Tie, right?!
