The Power of Pantone

January 27, 2016

Inspired by Disney’s live version of the classic fairy tale “Cinderella” as well as the dreamy Pantone 2016 color of the year combination, we wanted to create a look that felt romantic, feminine, a bit whimsical, and completely timeless.  This team designed everything around the Pantone colors of Rose Quartz and Serenity,  silver, and that classic “Cinderella” blue that we all know and love, which created the most beautiful contrast against the stony grays of Airlie’s Spanish steps. They the chose silver accented place settings and candelabras that paired perfectly with the dainty paper goods designed by Twila & Co. Cakes in Art created a stunning dessert table featuring a duo of cakes and French macaroons, and the flowers designed by Succulents & Saffron brought in just the right amount of whimsy to really bring this a fairy tale to life!! Enlightened Styles crafted the perfect makeup for our gorgeous bride, who looked like a true princess in the gown provided by Ava Laurenne Bride. Every single detail of this magical day was captured by Stephanie Messick Photography.
