Hi Guys and Happy Friday....let's take today and enjoy a few of the cafe's favorite inspiration boards from our beautiful friend Alisha of Weddings of Whimsy....thanks for all of the lovely inspiration Alisha!......Enjoy!! 

I have some gorgeous color-palette eye candy for you all today!  I am inspired by the refreshing hue of mint. It's kind of the more green version of sky blue... and it's amazingly versatile! I had about five different color combinations in my mind that worked well with mint, but as soon as I saw it next to my favorite hue of pink- the decision was made. Blush is exactly what the name says it is. Its three parts au-natural and two parts happiness. The perfect compliment to cool mint. The best thing about this combo is that I can picture it in a romantic, outdoor wedding just as much as I can see it in an indoor museum venue against stark-white walls. It is the perfect combination for those wishing to create an ethereal look to their wedding while still adding color.  So sit back and soak in this refreshing color palette and be inspired! ~ A

Tuesday, November, 1, 2011  |  Weddings

Good Morning everybody and a very happy first day of November! I am so excited to share this very special wedding with you! My wonderful friends Mr. & Mrs. Stells! 

Katie & David’s elegant Richmond wedding took place on October 9th, just a few weeks ago on what seemed to be the most perfect fall day of all time. They were married inside the stately Cannon Chapel on the beautiful University of Richmond campus, and celebrated with guests afterwards at Willow Oaks Country Club. I was so lucky to be a part of their wonderful day – my first official experience in wedding planning! –I could not have wished for a better Bride & Groom to work with!

When I first spoke to Katie about her wedding vision she knew she wanted something that would be remembered as timeless, elegant & classic. All adjectives that very well describe her graceful personality. (I have told her more than once that she reminds me of Kate Middleton…) With a color scheme of plum, gold & champagne, and a venue with as much romance & history as the couple themselves… we were off to a good start! The photography was done by Vera & Brian of Vera Pakizer Photography. I think they did such a wonderful job of catching the overall atmosphere of the day! Hope you enjoy the photos ;-)

Tuesday, September, 27, 2011  |  Inspiration

Good Morning Everyone & Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all enjoying your first week of fall, celebrating with Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and breaking out your coziest sweaters!  I have a pretty palette of color inspiration for you today, one that I think is just right to ease us into warmer autumn shades. I adore fall weddings, and I have quite a few that I will be [very happily] attending in the next few weeks. Though I love fall color schemes that showcase deeper colors, I am not fully ready to surrender my favorite lighter hues... which brings me to this elegant & playful, slightly french-inspried color scheme! 
I love the way this pinkish-purplish mauve mingles with the warm-but-soft apricot hues. And I love how this golden brown toffee shade pulls it all together in a perfect "let's get married in October" way! Let me know what you all think of it! As always, thanks a ton for reading!

Lacy, soft, frilly, ethereal, enchanting, inviting... all such lovely words. Today's post is all of these things. Inspired by the soft, ruffled layers of a peony. This is not so much a color palette, although these lovely whites and barely there blushing pinks make a lovely combo for your day, this is pure textural inspiration for all those die-hard romantics. What could be more romantic then ruffles, lace and tulle? One thing. A wedding that incorporates all three. Take a moment and let your mind wander around all the possibilities of romance in your wedding decor. Hope you enjoy the loveliness!

Tuesday, August, 23, 2011  |  Color Palettes

I was inspired earlier this week by an article in Martha Stewart Living  about jadite, old fashioned green glassware that really puts a pop in your decor. The shades of jadite paired next to any light shade of blue reminded me of seaglass... which brings me to this post! Calming blues and clear, glassy green... what could be a more lovely pair for a spring or summer wedding color palette? One of my favorite things about these seaglass shades are that you don't have to go crazy trying to match everything perfectly. As long as you stay within the same soft tones (no neon lime greens, please.) you will acheive this fresh, serene look.

Happy Friday, Everyone! It's Alisha here. I had a little bit of a break last week and it was so nice to have some vacation time, but I am back this week with another color palette! Today I have for you; Caramel Latte & Dusty Blue Details. It is a combination of pretty sky blues that have been a little toned down and faded, paired with golden and caramel hues. The combo is less committal than the aqua and brown palette that has become so popular. I call this the summertime version, things just seem better in the summer. :-) Enjoy!

It's another very lovely summer Friday at The Cafe, and my mind has been on the ocean all week long! Between Richmond's rainy day skies and these lazy beach day longings, I have come up with a color palette of calm, beautiful blues. You really can't go wrong if you mix different shades of the same color. I would love to see bridesmaids all wear a different shade of blue. So pretty and perfect for summertime! For a color palette of these blues, I like the idea of adding some gold elements, but if you are more of a silver or gray person, that would work well too in tying it all together. Hope you all enjoy your weekend and get a little time to gaze out into the ocean!!! ~ A

Hi Everyone! Coming to you all on a Thursday this week, but don't you worry, Friday is jussst around the corner! :-) For today, rest your eyes on a color combo that is energizing enough to help you make it through the week, yet calm enough to ease you into a restful holiday weekend! This soft yellow added to a dreamy barely-there pink makes the most beautiful summer combo! Add Khaki as a neutral and then things really pop! The result is simple, pure, sunny-day romance... Enjoy! :-)
