burnett’s boards got a makeover!

You may have noticed already but Burnett’s Boards has had a little makeover! I think she’s looking great and I owe it all to the amazing Jordan Brantley.

Many months ago I started thinking about rebranding… something a little more chic, a little more representative of the unique wedding inspiration that you find here. I started looking around for a graphic designer but soon became overwhelmed by how many great ladies there are out there with serious talent, so I stalled.

But when this fabulous rooftop styled shoot showed up in my inbox and I realized that the girl rocking the sparkle dress (in the rain no less!) also designed the gorgeous paper goods in that shoot, I immediately knew that she was the designer for me!

This rebrand was inspired by one of my favorite paintings by Minneapolis based artist Michael Carson. His work is so lovely and his pieces have an ethereal, quiet strength to them while maintaining an effortless chic quality.

Jordan created a custom painting and when she sent it to me it knocked my socks off. I still can’t get over the fact that Burnett’s Boards has its own piece of artwork! Isn’t it spectacular? I love how she was inspired by Carson’s wet paint technique – the little drips and visible brush strokes – it’s amazing and it was such a wonderful surprise.

While the surface of Burnett’s Boards has changed the structure still remains the same. You can still find every wedding inspiration board (organized by color) here and an index of all the posts on this blog (in alphabetical order) here. And of course, my wonderful sponsors who make this daily adventure possible can still be found in The Shop and Vendor Guide.

I hope you love the new look and I can’t thank Jordan enough for her brilliant work on this site (and for not saying anything about the fact that I showed up to all of our Skype meetings in my pajamas).

It’s really reflective of all the chic, creative goodness that is BB. Can we talk about how phenomenal that palette is?! Also, I’m so jealous that you have your own piece of artwork! I think Jordan should do some abstracts of Oliver…
