Color Palette : Passion for Peacock

Eye-catching, yet tranquil. Elegant, yet trendy. It's not hard to see why peacock inspired weddings have sprung up everywhere. This color palette is inspired by the teal greens and muted blues that adorn the beautiful bird. By avoiding too many peacock themed items and incorporating the colors as accents to classic cream and white, the look is clean and chic without being over the top.

In the Details : Cupcake Toppers

With so many brides opting to use cupcakes as opposed to traditional wedding cakes, it's no surprise that a whole new genre of cake toppers has grown around decorating these sweet treats. Cupcake toppers are as varied as the little cakes they adorn. When artfully arranged on platters and tiers, these dressed up mini desserts can be the hi-light of your reception table.

Trend Watch - Short and Sweet Bridal Gowns

From knee length to tea length, short bridal gowns are back in a big way for Spring and Summer. While most brides opt for floor skimming and beyond, short gowns make perfect sense for afternoon events, garden and outdoor weddings, second weddings, and brides looking to insert their own personal style taste. Loosing the length doesn't mean you're loosing style - as this collection of gowns demonstrates. Short can be very chic indeed.

In the Details : Ribbon Wands

A bride always wants to make a memorable entrance, but the exit is just as important. Ribbon wands are a unique, whimsical, and colorful way to send the newlyweds off with a "wave of good wishes" - a term coined by Pebbles Catto, owner of Living a Fairytale

Color Palette : Sorbet Bliss

While "tangerine tango" may be the official color of the year, for spring weddings I'm thinking sorbet orange. This softer version of the popular power color is delicate and refined while still retaining the energizing qualities and radiant feel of it's bolder cousin. When mixed with other citrus inspired hues and refined by hints of classic gray - you have a color combo that's a sure win for the season.

Alexa + Galen : Angel's Knoll Engagement Session

Alexa and Galen's love story is one that truly makes me believe some people are just destined to be together. I love the idea of two imperfect people finding one another and coming to the realization that together, they are perfectly matched. As Alexa told me, "we have so many things in common, but more importantly, all of our insecurities that make us quirky or sometimes impossible to be around are what bring us so close together.

The couple were engaged in December 2011 after a whirlwind romance. "Our engagement story isn't extremely romantic or without some hiccups, but if you knew us you'd realize that it is a perfect 'us' story." And you can see it captured in their eyes in their beautiful Angel's Knoll engagement session. Read on for more of their love story...

R.E. Style Feature : I Am Maryann

For today's Rew Elliott Style feature, I am pleased to introduce I Am Maryann, a custom jewelry company with a message. The design is simple and elegant - two charms, three words - but the message is powerful. With a line consisting primarily of necklaces and key chains, her products are perfect for brides looking for special and meaningful gifts for their bridesmaids, spouse, or wedding party members. I love that you can choose from one of her ready to go "I AM" statements, or customize your own purposed mantra.

Color Palette : Bride's Blush

For me, few colors are as delicate and refined as classic blush. It evokes a vintage quality and romantic feel that are so perfect as the backdrop for many wedding venues and themes. This inspiration board combines blush with classic ivory and gray for a timeless feel. From the rhinestone shoe clips to the conservatory reception venue and classic wedding cake design, the overall feeling is elegant and understated.
