    Bridal Color Inspiration: Romantic Mountain Styled Shoot

    Mountains, snow, whiskey, and fire. Add 11 local vendors and you have the perfect styled shoot. We are obsessed with this collaboration and even more obsessed with how beautifully Brittany Miller Photography and Palamora Events were able to capture simple, cozy love.

    Allure Bridal:
    A-line tulle gown, lace bodice, with beaded belt.

    For this shoot we took a traditional a-line tulle gown and toned it down with a neutral, cozy sweater. Of course, it wouldn’t be New Mexican without a Squash Blossom necklace. (sweater and necklace available at Turquoise Teepee)

    We love the color pallet that was chosen for this set up. Slate, peach, fern, reds, and metallics! It couldn’t of come together any better.

    When it comes to a wedding, it is okay to think outside the box and use several colors. The pink accent chairs are bold, yet subtle enough to allow the mixture of other colors and textures. Red was the perfect pop of color seen throughout. All brought together beautifully with sheer, slate drapery. You can rent these pieces through Knox Auctions.

    Can we talk about floral! As always, Calhoun Flower Farms did it again! A mixture of garden roses, blush stock, carnations, kale (yes, kale) eucalyptus, creosote and statice adorned this shoot. Floral is where you can really get creative with color. Opposed to fabric, flowers are light and add the perfect texture to any setting. 

    How cute is Susanna? Your local New Mexican flower farmer!

    This cute little basket included a bath bomb by Of the Oak and soap from New Mexico Soap. If you know good soap, you’ll love New Mexico Soap.

    Of the Oak makes all the goodness for your body. From lip balms, to deodorant, beard oil, bath soaks, to all the things apothecary.

    How good do these chocolate covered biscochos look?! Kudos to Amber Alvillar, 5th generation and owner of “Mi Abuelita’s Biscochos.” (You can get your hands on these here)

    Other small deets included these super cute greeting cards from Priq Candle Co. All hand-painted, all local. If you love these, you’ll also love her vegan candles! You can purchase here.

    We love how metals were used to add the perfect touch to this setup. Mixing metals is always okay as long as they’re combined with softer textures to balance them out. Velvet, wool, and mohair are just a few examples of textures that let metallics contrast and stand out on their own.

    You can’t even tell the snow is there from all the cozy feels this gives you.

    What a good looking bunch!

    Color Schemes To Fit Your Season

    Your color palette determines a majority of your wedding decor and wear. Depending on when your wedding will be held, certain shades will be more appropriate for the current season. We put together color combinations for each season that embraces the beauty that comes within the different times of the year.
    Take advantage of your season to make your wedding seamlessly beautiful, no matter when it may be.

    Winter

    Dusty Blues, Ivory, & Neutral Greens

    Brighten up your gloomy winter days with this gorgeous color palette. Dusty blue works collectively with this time of year as it embraces the cold weather this season brings. Add a pop of brightness with hints of ivory. Like pictured above, incorporate this color into things like your bouquet and accessories to give your color palette some classic illumination. Keep your color scheme natural with greenery. Since winter loses its fresh greens, this color incorporates itself beautifully as it gives your winter wedding the crisp brightness it could be missing. All of these tones photograph exquisitely in this weather, creating a whimsical and organic feel.

     

    Spring

    Indigo, Blush, & Eucalyptus 

     

     As Winter fades away, it’s time to bring in the beauty of Spring. With chic tones like blush, your wedding will have that feminine warmth this season offers us. Work with nature by incorporating eucalyptus. This leaf and color provide that muted green that compliments any type of radiant flower, allowing for your blush blend to stand out. Indigo is a great color to match with these earthy, light colors. Have your groom try it out! This color looks great on tuxedos as it opens the door for many light tones to pair it with. More than any other season of the year, flowers are your friend. Take advantage of the blossoming season, and let your love bloom with it.

     

    Summer

    Coral, Yellow, & Turquoise

     Keep your summer sunny and bright with these fun colors. Especially here in the Southwest, a pop of color goes a long way. Embrace the heat by creating a colorful scenery for your special day. The contrast the color turquoise brings to the warm tones of yellow and coral form a lighthearted ambiance that will surely have your guests feeling joyful. Don’t be afraid to be bold! Merge these shades with dull greens to not lose that elegance we all strive for on the big day. Reflect the season with your lively colors and stand out. 

     

    Fall

    Deep Reds, Navy, & Silver

     

    When we think of Fall, we think romance. What better way to embrace love than with red?! Leaves are changing and love is growing, allow for your colors to reflect just that. Deep reds grasp the beauty of autumn and invite the warm tones into your wedding with grace. Pair these classic shades with navy blue. This dark color compliments red without losing the magic of this season. Your groom will stand out, looking sophisticated and fashionable. Accessorize with silver to add that finishing touch of glamour.
