When you hear Emerald, you think of words like bright, rich and vibrant. Emerald isn't shy. It's the kind of green that puts itself out there without being garish. It's one of my favorite colors. In fact, I used it in my wedding.

Emerald alone is very powerful. Personally, I love to pair it with gold and tan. It's a very elegant palette. I chose to use Emerald sparingly here. I didn't want to overpower the portraits. I used tone on tone embellishments to add interest. The butterflies represent the change that was about to occur in my life.
Though Emerald green is a jewel tone, pairing it with brighter blues, pinks or sunshine yellow helps keep it more fun and less formal.Choices in patterned paper and motif also play a role in how you perceive emerald green.
