2015’s Biggest Wedding Trends

Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 3.23.49 PM

 

The underlying word would have to be “fuse.” Couples are creating one-of a-kind events that speak individuality. Forget all the rules about “what we have to do” and bring on the fun and exciting of “what we want to do.” Couples are incorporating traditional elements and meshing it with elaborate art-deco designs. Inspiration for each of these events come from the individuals tying the knot. Binding together the vision of the couple creating a magical and elegant soiree for guests to enjoy. This helps couples feel hand-on and a sense of uniqueness. Guests can enjoy the intricate details and feel a sense of personal connection to the couple while celebrating this monumental day in their lives. Color palettes, vintage lace, dramatic cakes, classic elegance, seasonal blooms, farm-to-table trends and the list can go on. 2015 celebrations are all about compelling statement and speak non other than a sense of originality.

Wow, where has the time gone! Not only is 2015 in full swing, but February is just a couple of days away.  So many great events to look forward to and so many things to be thankful for. Every January, the Lenell team gathers and reflects back on the year. So many things come into play; highlights of the year, accomplishments, improvements, growth and the list go on. Each year we focus on what makes Lenell shine and we work on perfecting it. Amidst this process of mood boards, post-its and continuous flow of coffee we noticed a trend. We kept mentioning how blessed we are to have incredible clients. We are who we are and continue to be because of the supportive clients we have.  We are greatly appreciative of all of the love and support each and every one of them gives us. The principles and elements of Lenell stand strong and continue to bloom, flourish and harvest because of these superb individuals. We want to take this time and thank each and every person that has touched our lives. You have touched our lives so greatly and we are so very grateful. Looking forward to a fruitful year!
