Sunset Inspired Wedding Details ♥ Inspiration Board & Etsy Spotlight (Twofer!)

During one of my sojourns in the land of Etsy,  I stumbled upon a bounty of colorific creations being sold by paintallnightstudios, a darling little paint shop.  The images below, painted by Robert David Bretz, are a just a handful of the many lovely works of art I found to be so inspiring that I decided to put this post on double-duty!

I have a special place in my heart for anything that plays upon the splendid spectrum of the setting sun.  The above paintings – alone, a wonderful way to add color to the walls of your venue – inspire a palette of reds, oranges, yellows, blues, greens and browns.

With that in mind, I gathered up a great number of details to complement this color palette; you can find each and every one of these in the wonderful world of Etsy.

(Note: just hover over the image for the Etsy shop name and a more detailed description of the item.)
