Hello and happy New Year! One of my plans for 2016 is to continue with The Chronicles of a Boho Bride and each month share an incredible wedding or styled shoot that used Bohemian Mint watercolor wedding stationery. Since January is a cool (read:freezing!!) month, I thought this shoot had the perfect “cool colors” palette: teal, olive, and gold with minimal splashes of pink and peach. This combination of colors is quite unusual for a wedding but I love it nonetheless. Plus, it’s giving me some serious boho vintage vibes!
This wedding had a lot of quirky elements, including feathers, succulents, metallic candle holders, and other fun little decorations. It had a ton of vintage gold pieces- from silverware to vases, to lanterns. Oh, and let’s not forget to mention the vintage olive-colored hot rod!
This shoot as been featured on multiple national and local wedding blogs, including Xaaza Style, 7 centerpieces, Sweet Violet bride and The Westchester Wedding Planner. Thank you!

The brief for the shoot was a “chic vintage inspiration with 1960s vibes and a teal-olive-gold color palette. I love teal, so I started with an ombre brushstroke invite with a feather accent. I liked the feather so much that I decided to continue the theme to the menu card as well. I also designed a fun little card with one of my favorite quotes ever: “To love and to be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.” I love quotes, so I guess I am a bit cheesy like that, lol.
This color palette is very vintage- I love the teal coupled with gold, olive green and pops of pink to soften the palette. I can see these colors in an elegant barn venue setting! What do you think about this color combo?
