Greenery for your wedding

With St. Patrick’s Day on the horizon, I’m paying homage to one of my favorite colors—green. It’s a great hue to add to your wedding color palette. After all, it represents new beginnings. Adding lush greenery gives your wedding decor a natural, organic vibe. And it's on trend too with Pantone announcing it as 2017's color of the year. Here are some ways past brides and grooms I’ve worked with have incorporated green into their wedding color palette.
