New Website Sneak Peek

Tomorrow is an exciting day! I've been hard at work updating the Laurel & Elm website to reflect the work we've done over the last year and how we've grown and changed! I'll be going more in depth on this tomorrow but for now, here's a little sneak peek mood board of what's to come! 

Can't wait to show you the finished version! Check back tomorrow to see! 

Laurel & Elm Featured on Mod Wedding!

This bright + modern styled shoot from way back in January has truly been the gift that keeps on giving! On top of all of the beautiful photos from Tina Jay Photography, it has now been featured on Style Me Pretty, Ruffled and now Mod Wedding! After all of the hard work that goes into creating a styled shoot, it's so rewarding to know that all of these beautiful blogs loved it as much as we did! Here are the talented vendors that we teamed up with for this shoot:

Choosing Your Exact Wedding Colors

Today I'm sharing one of my absolute favorite tips that I give to brides to help with the "big picture" look! After a recent trip to Home Depot to pick out some gray paint swatches for my new office, I was reminded of how helpful this is.

For all of my couples that don't have a handy pantone swatch book at home, head to your closest home improvement store and pick out your wedding colors in the paint swatches! Here's a handful of swatches I picked up for myself that are all considered gray:

This is crazy to me because some are clearly gray-purple, some are gray-brown and some are gray-blue. Had I just asked for "gray" paint, who knows what I would've come home with! 

Once you've picked out your favorite shades of your wedding colors, you can bring these swatches with you to all of your meetings! This ensures that every single vendor and detail - from stationery and floral to bridesmaids dresses and table linens - are on the same page with what "gray" is to YOU, the client.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's day everyone! It's no secret that greenery and gold details are some of our favorites at Laurel & Elm, so today we are sharing some of our best unintentional St. Patty's day inspiration!
