Radiant Orchid Inspiration Board

This week, Pantone announced its 2014 color of the year and it’s absolutely gorgeous!  As a wedding/event planner I’m truly inspired and so excited for my 2014 weddings and events.  Pantone Radiant Orchid is the perfect combination of pink and purple creating a beautiful and elegant wedding dress that is also bright and playful at the same time. A wedding dress in such a shade will surely add a romantic feel to any wedding. Hope you enjoy a few of my wedding picks, and don’t forget to visit our Pinterest board for more orchid-hue inspirations ! Bethaina xox

Photo Booth at Vera Wang Event San Francisco

Happy Friday !

I wanted to share some of the photos we took at the Vera Wang Event this past Wednesday. We had so much fun getting styled by Vintage box 1947 gals with their fabulous headpieces and taking self-portraits in the photo booth station, which was set up by the talented Julie Mikos. Bethaina xox

Vera Wang San Francisco Holiday Party

Last night, I had a fabulous time at the  Vera Wang San Francisco Holiday Party.  I was able to get a sneak peek at the Fall 2014 Pink Collection. It was impossible to pick a favorite as all the gowns were absolutely stunning. The gowns were  breathtaking and reminded me of a table full of decadent dessert.   The 2014 Pantone Color of the year is Radiant Orchid, a gorgeous pinkish purple, and if I say so myself, the collection could of not been showcased at a better time. I had the pleasure of meeting amazing vendors all around the Bay, including Feast Catering, El Dorado Kitchen, Cake Bloom, MKT Restaurant and Bar, and lots more.  I also loved meeting so many talented photographers from the Bay Area who I hope to work with in the near future. Thank you Vera Wang, Mumm Napa and Wed Spring for hosting such a fun event. Bethaina xox

 

The 2014 Pantone Color of the year is Radiant Orchid

The 2014 Pantone Color of the year is Radiant Orchid! I’v got to admit that I’m thrilled that we’re going to be seeing this gorgeous pinkish purple everywhere now, especially for 2014 weddings. It’s the perfect palette for the bride and groom who do love bright colors and love making a statement. Radiant Orchid is such a pretty, warm energetic color and going to really be a fun color and absolutely perfect for every bride.
