Like many of you, I was curious to hear about the new Pantone color of the year. I’d heard mixed reviews about Ultra Violet and at first glance, I’ll admit that images of a certain purple dinosaur danced through my head. Keeping an open mind, I headed over to the Pantone site to see what they had to say about it:
A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.
Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own. From the Pantone website.
Ultra Violet, Pantone color of the year for weddings
Over the last few years, we’ve seen a lot of dusty neutral tones in wedding color palettes. While these hues are understated and elegant to be sure, it’s refreshing to see a punch of color amongst the wedding blooms. Perhaps this is what Kari from Emerson & Co and Janelle from Flowers by Janie had in mind when they planned this fall wedding inspiration shoot at Silvertip Resort. Lavender and purple shades were paired with mustard yellow and loads of fresh greenery. The final result was lively and organic, with a hint of drama.
Well done ladies and completely on point. I look forward to seeing more Ultra Violet at weddings as 2018 unfolds. Finally, here’s more from this beautiful mountain shoot, if you’d like to see.
