Shades of Emerald and Amethyst Wedding Inspiration

Thursday, August 16, 2018 Portsmouth, Virginia

Inspired by classic aesthetic with a twist of modern beauty, jewel-toned shimmers take centerstage in this gorgeous wedding inspiration photographed by vendor fam Caitlin Gerres Photography. To honor her great-grandmother who sadly passed away last year at 100 years old, the color palette of emerald green and amethyst purple emerged from a handmade knitted blanket given to Caitlin as a young child. (It'll squeeze your heart when it makes a cameo below, too!)

With copper hues dotting the sweetheart table in the flatware, chair legs, and place cards, the metallic shines perfectly with the rich velvet details of the table runner and furniture on the porch of the Woman's Club of Portsmouth. Pair that with the modern dove gray wedding gown and the transition into autumn, and it's swoonworthy everything!

Styled by Misty Saves The Day, we are especially loving the touch of Pantone's color of the year, Ultra Violet, taking a peek in the anemone boutonniere the groom wears and the hand-painted emerald wedding cake with golden brushstrokes and white sugar flowers. As you get inspired by this loveliness, pardon us while we just snuggle up in heirloom blankets on luxurious vintage armchairs. Fall is coming.
