Baltimore Wedding Beauties

When brides take risks and add unexpected color to their wedding, I always think it pays off big time (although I'm totally partial and love all things bright). Maybe to some it can be a bit startling at first, but then it really brings that lighthearted pure happiness to an occasion meant for both. So when we were asked by our Baltimore bride Nicole, to use pinks, blues and greens for her earrings and hairpiece - of course we were pumped!

For projects like weddings, we like to include our brides along on the process as much as they'd like. I just think how excited I get when I see the before and after pictures of projects, and like to think that everyone enjoys it as much as me... After we gather all the materials, we'll send a photo like this one to our bride to make sure the colors look good to her. It's also a great way for us to document what specific pieces we are going to use for each project.


Using her adorable Anthropologie Pond Reflections bridesmaid dresses as inspiration, we created two pair of sterling silver, hand-hammered hoop earrings with navy and green petals and accents.


For the bride, she wanted a touch of pink, and a sterling silver chain chandelier-like design with navy and green accents. I even made a simpler pair for Nicole in case she got cold feet and wanted something a bit smaller and subdued, but she went for the bright pair! (so happy she did)


To pull the look together, we created a sweet hairpin with bright white satin ribbon, a hint of white polka dot tulle peeking out, a beautiful white fabric flower garnished with the same petals and accents from the earrings. Should be a nice pop of color paired with her beautiful white gown and dark hair. Love summer weddings!

Thanks Nicole!
