2017 Pantone Color of the Year Greenery | Quintessential Seattle Wedding Styled Shoot

Wedding Planning Seattle | Wedding Wise | Delille Cellars | 2017 Pantone Color of the Year Greenery

I hope you enjoy this first post in our series on GREENERY, the 2017 Pantone color of the year! Watch the blog for new posts all about this inspiring color!

When a group of Seattle creatives use the Pantone color for 2017, Greenery, without even knowing it....YES! What an awesome feeling!

Okay, here's a little background on this super fun collaboration.

I'm part of an amazing group of creative minds that spans states and countries, called The Rising Tide Society. They encourage community over competition across all creative entrepreneurial professions and believe that "a rising tide lifts all boats." I'm a big fan of their mission!

In spring 2016, they put out a challenge to all the the RTS groups across the country (and the world!) asking them to pull together in a city or area and design a styled shoot with all kinds of wedding creatives, even including multiple vendors per category!

The Seattle group rose to the challenge and the group of planners, including myself, brainstormed some theme ideas. I was absolutely giddy when one of my suggestions, "Quintessential Seattle", was selected by popular vote! We were really excited to showcase the beauty and uniqueness of this area we love so much.

One of the main colors of the shoot was featured in the really fresh greenery...that just so happens to be the new Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 -- also called GREENERY! Yay us! Our subconscious probably picked greens in that specific shade because we knew it was an important color.

Here are some favorite shots from the shoot. Did I mentioned there were 4 photographers that were all fabulous? So hard to pick favorites out of hundreds of great shots! I've selected some from each photographer to showcase below.

The following photos are from Kelly Lemon Photography.

The next group is from Karissa Roe Photography

You can thanks Alicia Lynne Photography for this next group!

Last but not least, are Catherine Straume Photography's photos.

I'm so thankful for such an inclusive group of wedding professionals in the Seattle area. Looking forward to the next time I'm lucky enough to collaborate with any of them! 

Watch the blog on THURSDAY for the next installment in our Greenery series!
