zodiac wedding: leo

Our zodiac series continues today with this marigold and terracotta wedding inspiration board for those born between July 23rd and August 22nd: Leo!

Marigold and terracotta wedding inspiration / zodiac wedding: leo

The lion is the symbol of the Leo zodiac sign and so naturally I thought of warm, golden colors like the marigold and terracotta hues in this inspiration board. Leos are confident, independent people who are also known to be social butterflies so a rooftop wedding reception is just the right venue for lion brides.

Leos have a zest for life, love to be the center of attention, and exude a warm spirit. They are natural-born leaders who enjoy the luxuries and finer things in life. Lion brides are the trend setters among us. They are the kinds of brides who would take traditional fall colors (yellow and red) and then spin that palette on its head to come up with a modern, chic, late summer wedding – just in time for their birthday!

  1. I’m a leo, so I headed right over here when I saw that my sign was next in the series. I LOVE this!!! I’ve never thought of putting terracotta and marigold together, but it’s such a beautiful and unique palette. And it’s perfect for a leo. I love that rooftop lounge area, and I am obsessed with that antique chair. I’ve been holding onto it to use in my mustard board, but you beat me to it!

  2. Such impeccably-chosen images (as always) to bring across another gorgeous palette!

  3. YAY! I’m a Leo too. This makes me feel like I have inherently awesome taste!!! LOL, of course, it’s YOUR taste, but hey, as a Leo, I like being the center of attention 🙂

    Great job Doll!!!
