Inspiration Board #53: Moody Pink & Lace

pink&lace

Pink and lace is so feminine a combination, I love the idea off balancing the look with a location that has a bit of a dark and moody side. A forest or a long table setup in a grove of trees would be oh so pretty…

Inspiration Board #51: Modern Red & White Stripe

I love a wedding with a graphic design element and these extra wide red and white stripes are just that. I love the timeless modernism of stripes, plus this color palate just seems so energizing and fun. I picture this wedding taking place at a beach and the ceremony arch would be a take off on this old red and white cabana. The bride would rock some serious red heels and dance the night away.

Everything about this photo is pure perfection: the color, the styling and the photography well, pure genius courtesy of Elizabeth Messina! I seriously might need a print of this photo to hang somewhere in my house.

PS Sorry for disappearing yesterday, I’m finalizing details on 3 weddings and its been a little chaotic here. I’m hoping to keep up with the blog these next two weeks, but don’t be surprised if I’m MIA for a few days…


Inspiration Board #49: Springtime Blues & Yellows

May 03

blue&yellow

Continuing my obsession with all things spring, I designed this board based on the photo in the lower left corner by Polly Wreford. I love the blue and white pattern dress, the casual bouquet of daffodils, and the blue gingham ribbon. I picture this wedding taking place at a family friend’s home, homemade lemonade would serve as favors, and a yummy lemon granita would add be a tasty palate cleaner in between courses of gourmet comfort foods. Stunning acacia and ranunculus would serve as centerpieces and the couple would make their getaway in an old blue bug.

Inspiration Board #26: Aqua & Green

June 15

I love the vibrant color combination of aqua and green. Its so fun, whimsical, and in a garden setting the colors just work for me. I picture this wedding with vintage touches (antique glass, bird cages) and over-sized garden pots.
