Last year, when coco+kelley asked me to make some color predictions, one of my palette picks was deep red and peach. I don’t know how successful my prediction was, but I sure do love the look, and I’ve been meaning to create an inspiration board with it ever since. Romantic without being overly sweet, and sophisticated without being too serious. And that cake is one of my very favorite things ever!

Palette: cranberry-apple red, rosy peach, buttercream

Love the combo - peach is one of our colors already, now I'm tempted to add some hints of red into our already-bursting-at-the-seams palette.

What a great combo - and it is very romantic with a significant sexy zing, too!

Reminds me of a Shakespearean romantic, yet moody & intense all at the same time!

I LOVE this palette!!! (I know I'm seeing this late) I've been searching for the perfect palette with red for my fall wedding (without doing the same ol' fall colors as everyone else) that was still romantic and you just put into pictures what I was thinking! Thank you so much! One question- do you have any idea where those shoes came from?? I LOVE them and think they would be the perfect wedding shoes (I wanted red)... now if only I can figure out where to get them. Thanks!

In case anyone else is as interested as I was- the shoes are poetic licence from a few years go. Too bad they are impossible to find now! :(
