If there’s one thing we’re looking forward to most about all the inspiration coming up in 2014, it’s color! Hot pinks and fuchsias tend to pop up in the spring, neons in the summer, rich purples and orange hues in the fall, and winter tends to shine with metallics. So where would shimmering iridescent colors fit in? After this styled shoot from Anne Brookshire Photography, we say, whenever! Here are a few beautiful ways to translate the iridescence of a stone into inspiration for your wedding…
Pretty, no? These colors are so neutral and can work for any season or party.
