Hot (and Cool) Wedding Colors | Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year

By, January 12, 2016

Pantone 2016 Color of the YearAlong with the New Year comes the announcement of Pantone’s Color of the Year! For 2016, Pantone broke from tradition for the first time in history, and made not one but two selections: Rose Quartz and Serenity. These colors combine aspects of warm and cool tones, creating a perfect sense of fresh balance and calm. We decided to show how Pantone’s winners can add to the wedding day fun, and create new possibilities this wedding season.

As you will see in the photos below, both Rose Quartz and Serenity make for dynamic and memorable wedding accent colors. The subtle, muted blues of Serenity are cool and tranquil, while Rose Quartz complements with its punch of pink vibrance. When paired together, the romantic, sunset effect will leave your guests enchanted. Both colors are great any time of year, and can be augmented by a variety of greens and purples, or splashes of silver and yellow. In addition, these hues can be found in the natural environment, creating a dramatic and artistic backdrop for wedding day images.

If you’re looking to add an elegant twist to your big day, we’ve gathered the perfect inspiration for incorporating these trending colors. Scroll through the images below highlighting Rose Quartz and Serenity, and make sure to pin your favorites :)

On the Boardwalk, down by the sea…

Kelsey and Kyle are getting married at a private vineyard estate in September, so they wanted to take a completely different direction with their engagement shoot! To provide a nice contrast with the rustic feel of their upcoming fall wedding, we headed down to Pacific Beach for the engagement shoot. This was the perfect location to keep it casual, while adding a bit of an edge.  We had a blast photographing this super fun couple playing around on the boardwalk, walking on the sand, climbing trees, and exploring Belmont Park as the sun went down!

The two of them were all about laughing, which made the session light-hearted and memorable.  Judging by Kelsey and Kyle’s engagement shoot, this is going to be a fun wedding! Let us know what you think about their happy-go-lucky P.B. photo session.
