Peach & Sage

Posted on

Last week we held a beautiful wedding in our Ballroom and I absolutely fell in love with the color scheme: peach and sage. After a bit of research, I was delighted to see that these colors are actually trending for 2014, Fall 2014 specifically. With rich orange tones paired with a hearty countryside green, what’s not to love?

As the seasons begin to cool, darker hues of hunter and cranberry will be more the rage, but don’t discount their lighter cousins for an elegant and feminine touch. Include touches of chocolate, hints of coral, and accents of copper or brass for additional individuality! Read More

Aqua, one of the season’s hottest colors, is a reflection on all things aquatic. It is no wonder that the power of water has captured the attention of many couples seeking wedding color inspiration. The color is both soothing and intense with ranges from bright turquoise to rich indigo.

There are so many fun ways you can incorporate this theme into your wedding, and it would work perfectly for your something blue! Pair with pale pink, ivory, or gold, or think outside the box and try an unexpected pairing with poppy red or lemon. Aqua is so versatile, your choices are virtually limitless! Read More

The wedding season has been in full swing here at the Shadowland Ballroom. With over thirty beautiful weddings completed this summer, we saw a lot of new and inspiring ideas pass through our walls and want to share them with you!

1. Unique Table Numbers

From bride+groom photographs to open seating, table numbers are no longer 1, 2, 3. Our bride from the wedding shown below is an English teach and decided to letter the tables rather than number — how awesome! Read More
