Introducing the color everybody’s talking about: Marsala! We’ve been swooning over this deep burgundy-red ever since Pantone revealed it as the new “it” color last week. This sophisticated shade would make the perfect addition to a rich, romantic palette, a lovely complement to a jewel tone scheme, or even a nice accent to an organic, woodsy aesthetic. Check out our Marsala gallery for some great ways to infuse your wedding decor with what Pantone calls a “hearty yet stylish tone.”

Inspiration for your wedding decor can come from anywhere – and a favorite movie, especially a classic film like the1952 Gene Kelly/Debbie Reynolds favorite Singin’ in the Rain, is a great place to start. We love how the creative Savannah-based vendor team, lead by Morgan Gallo Events and Azelle Photography, took this idea to heart by creating a style shoot full of Old Hollywood glamour and a touch of whimsy. Of particular note are the bright color palette, old school-meets-modern lounge area, raindrop-inspired details at every turn (love that cake!), and the vintage umbrellas hanging above the dance floor. Who said that rain on your wedding day is a bad thing? Check out the stunning, inspiring photos below – plus a bonus video from this gorgeous shoot.
