Kodachrome Wedding

Mama P says I was born in the wrong era.  Perhaps she is right. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the music of the 1980’s and the 1990’s, but I have a deep love for the music of the 50’s, 60’s and 70′.  Simon and Gar, CCR, the Beatles, and Janis Joplin played in the Pretzel car all the time growing up.  My favorite song, Kodachrome by Simon and Garfunkel.  I soon discovered that Mr Pretzel shares my love of this song. We love to cue it up on the iPod and sing like idiots.  To us, the song embodies fun, vivid color.

When we started to select our color pallet, I had a hard time eliminating colors.  My favorite color is Turquoise/Aqua.  But I also am partial to green, bright pink, and orange.  With the exception of orange (it makes me look ill) I wear the other colors a lot.  As I struggled to pick one or two colors- Mr Pretzel solved my problem. Use them all!  Duhhh  why didn’t I think of that?  We started to refer to our wedding as a Kodachrome wedding and our vision of it started to come together.  Check out my inspiration board:

Are you limiting your color pallet to one or two colors?  How has music influenced your wedding decisions?

Lyrics to Kodachrome :
When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school
It’s a wonder I can think at all
And though my lack of education hasn’t hurt me none
I can read the writing on the wall

Kodachrome
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away

If you took all the girls I knew when I was single
And brought them all together for one night
I know they’d never match my sweet imagination
Everything looks better in black and white

Kodachrome
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away
Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away
Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away
Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away

Mama don’t take my Kodachrome
Mama don’t take my Kodachrome
Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away

Mama don’t take my Kodachrome
Leave your boy so far from home
Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away

Mama don’t take my Kodachrome
Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away
