We’re pleased to introduce the first in a series of original Adirondack-themed inspiration boards! Naturally, our boards will show off the beauty of our region, local venues, and the talents of local wedding professionals. (Would we do it any other way? Of course not!) But which color scheme to choose for our first-ever board? We’ve picked one of our favorites, perfect for late summer: gold!

Gold Inspiration Board | Adirondack Weddings Magazine

In choosing wedding colors, many local brides and grooms seek to incorporate colors that are a natural part of the Adirondack landscape. Using a field of wheat as our starting point, we choose some of our favorite gold-toned photos to inspire you. The warm glow of gold brings out the natural brown hues of wood slabs, maple syrup, and birch bark (both real birch bark, and birch bark frosting!). To incorporate gold into your wedding colors, try gold candles, or an elegant draping of fabric across your reception tent or hall. Yellow-tinged peonies glow brilliantly in the sunlight. And don’t forget the power of color in your wedding attire! We chose a gold bridesmaid dress from Marks & Spencer that is stylish, adorable, and just a little bit retro. Short dresses are fantastic for warm summer weddings!

Are you considering including gold in your Adirondack wedding? Let us know! Like the board? Pin it, share it, and check back soon for more boards to come!

    What a beautiful inspiration board! I love the muted gold color scheme and rustic accents. Gold isn’t a color I would have originally thought to use for a wedding but it looks so elegant and timeless.

    How beautiful! The gold color scheme is just lovely. I especially love the draped fabric accents with the lighting hidden inside. It looks so magical!

    I agree Lilian, the lights appear very magical. :) The rustic colors amplify an elegant vintage look.

    I like the combination of maple with golden wheat for a color combo. Usually I am not a big fan of white, gold and brown together, but this post is changing my mind about that.
