Board #303 | Espresso and Marigold

This wedding board was inspired by those incredible yellow-gold shoes from J.Crew with the guinea feathers. I can’t get over the color, the style – I love them! These colors would work equally well for a late fall or winter wedding, and though I went with a more vintage look here, I imagine you could go modern with this palette if you wanted to.

Mood: warm, vintage luxury
Palette: marigold, espresso
