Minty Fresh Green

Everybody has had a love affair with green. It’s among the most soothing of colors, and is certainly appropriate for a springtime wedding. We’re in love, especially with a crisp mint green, and are celebrating the official arrival of spring a couple days early. Enjoy the inspiration below; we hope we’ve struck a nice balance between a soft mint to a less-subtle hue.     Credits: 1 Boutonniere by Tre Bella Flowers w/ image by Kellie Kano Photography via *** 2 Image via *** 3 Image via *** 4 Image by Flemming Leitorp of Bryllupsglimt via *** 5 Benefit eyeshadow via *** 6 Bridesmaid dress by Wtoo 7 Image by emily g photography via ***. 8 Photo by Smallpigart Photography via *** 9 Cake by The Landing West Coast Grill via *** 10 Allure Bridals bridesmaid dresses via *** 11 Bouquet image via Martha Stewart Weddings 12 Photo via *** […]
