marbled grey and auburn

Marbled grey and auburn wedding inspiration board

Marbled grey + auburn isn’t a common wedding color palette – but I think that it is an absolutely gorgeous one. Classy AND unique – what’s not to love about that?! For a wedding color combination with so much stone-like and cool hues it’s important to provide a balance and warm things up a bit. […]

pewter and merlot

Gray pewter and red merlot wedding inspiration |

This pewter and Merlot colored wedding inspiration board was inspired by the jaw-dropping bold red and berry styled shoot earlier this week. I’ve been on a red-loving kick ever since then! While the styled shoot I mentioned was bright and had touches of gold, for this wedding inspiration board I wanted to tone down the drama […]

board game wedding: battleship

vintage industrial red and gray wedding

Since the zodiac wedding inspiration board series ended last Thursday, I thought I’d start another ‘every Thursday’ series since I think everyone (myself included) really enjoyed seeing those! The inspiration this time is classic board games and today’s gray & red vintage industrial board is based on the game Battleship. I know what you’re thinking… […]

urban grunge

Orange and grey urban grunge wedding ideas

I’ll admit that I had a hard time naming this wedding inspiration board. I floated between urban grunge and grungy prepster (not intended as an insult!).

estella and pip (+ styled shoot)

grey wedding inspiration board

The story of Estella and Pip in Great Expectations is definitely one of my favorites and creating inspiration boards from my favorite books is how this blog got started.

les miserables

Les Miserables themed wedding

So normally when you’re picturing your dream wedding, Les Miserables isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Bear with me though!

Despite the somewhat gruesome outcome of this story (I don’t want to spoil it here if you haven’t read it), it would make  for a romantic […]
