Pantone Inspired Styled Shoot

Every year Pantone releases their color of the year. More often than not, brides, event planners, and floral designers look to the new hue as inspiration for their event. This year TWO colors made the cut: Serenity and Rose Quartz. Dawn Temple, of Bellaria Designs Photography drafted a team of amazingly talented event professionals to show off their creativity centered around the two colors. Inspired by its rustic charm, Dawn chose The Stone House in Little Compton, RI to host this styled shoot. “Using the location of the Stone House and its grounds as the backdrop, I knew I could create amazing images, incorporating the work of my team. My images captured the romanticism of the location, flora, and other design elements,” Dawn explained.  The White Invite sent the vibe of the shoot with their whimsical Pantone watercolor invitation suite.

Rustic Roots Design created textural bouquets, floral crowns, and table garland in varying shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity. “Wanting to add in some other shades as well, we chose pink lisianthus, blue thistle, juliet and sahara roses, seeded and feather eucalyptus, blue hydrangea, dusty miller, white calcinea, lemon leaf, and pink tulips,” the team described.

How To Measure For Your Groom’s Suit

fur-and-glitz_0005

You thought picking out the wedding dress was the hard part! Just wait until it comes time to order a suit for the groom. The most important part of the process is to make sure you record the correct measurements. If you can’t make it to a tailor (FYI, they usually charge a small fee of $5-15), here’s how to take the measurements yourself.

Measure for the Suit Jacket. Start at the widest part of your torso (the area just beneath your arms and across the chest). Just don’t suck in when you measure — you want the jacket to be fitted, but not too tight.

Next, determine your height. This measurement (plus, the one across your torso) will help you figure out if you need a suit that’s short, medium or long.

Measure your waist to know your pant size. Your actual waist is where your belly button sits, so use that as a starting point when you measure around your torso. Again, not too tight!

Next up, do the inseams. For this, you may need someone else to help. Stand with your legs apart and measure from the crotch to the bottom of your shoe (this is so your pants don’t drag on the ground).

Measure your hips. You’ll need to wrap the tape around the widest part of your buttocks to get this right.

Last, but not least, don’t forget the sleeve length. For this, you should start at the seam of your shoulder and measure to about two inches below your wrist. That’s it!

5 Signature Cocktail Ideas for a Spring Wedding

crane-estate-wedding-photography-leila-brewster-610

Now that everything major is booked for your spring wedding, it’s time to focus on the fun parts! Case in point: Signature cocktails to serve your guests. The benefit of offering a signature cocktail is that it’s an easy way to cut back on the cost of a fully stocked (and open) bar. It’s also a stylish way to infuse your personality into the beverage options. Here, 5 cocktails that are perfect for spring.

A French 75. This light and fragrant drink is made from gin, champagne, lemon juice and sugar, a total crowd-pleaser for anyone that prefers drinks that aren’t super sweet.

A Pimm’s Cup with Lemonade. For this, you’ll need Pimm’s, lemon juice and simple syrup. Colorful straws are totally optional.

A Pink Grapefruit Mojito. This pretty and refreshing cocktail requires freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, limes, honey, sparkling water and white rum. Garnish with mint leaves and serve.

A Cucumber Gin and Tonic. To whip this one up, your caterer will need gin, tonic water, lime, sugar and cucumber slices. The light taste will wow your guests.

A Margarita. You can’t go wrong with this signature drink of spring (and summer). All you need to make it is tequila, triple sec and lime. (Just don’t forget the salt.)
