autumn garden wedding

Autumn garden weddings are simply beautiful. The colors in this inspiration board are warm, romantic, and totally reminiscent of the fall season. Plus, I love brides who step out of the box and choose a wedding dress other than white and the one in this inspiration board is perfect. It could also work for a […]

sunset

If there is one thing (aside from rainbows) that we get a lot of out here in Hawaii it’s beautiful, jaw-dropping sunsets. The colors of a recent sunset that I watched off of my lanai the other evening (and sadly failed to photograph) inspired this wedding inspiration board. The warm pinks, peaches, and soft yellows […]

the velveteen rabbit

I’m not sure what it was when I thought of one of my favorite childhood books, The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams, but the color ‘light yellow’ immediately sprang to mind. I think it has something to do with the beautiful original illustrations that that book has by William Nicholson or the fact that my […]

12 days of christmas: 7 swans a swimming

Day 7 of our 12 Days of Christmas series brings us ‘swans-a-swimming.’ One trap that I’ve seen some brides fall into is that they can take their inspiration source a little too literally. At first glance, this wedding inspiration board doesn’t read ‘swans’ – but when you take a closer you looks you see a […]

lego wedding

A lego inspired wedding is a fun and cute way to tie the knot. I wouldn’t recommend going totally overboard (as in constructing an arch to get married under out of legos), but lego themed touches here and there like on your wedding invitations, the groom and groomsmen’s boutonnieres, and atop the cake are darling. […]

kitten

This light yellow, kitten themed inspiration board was created for Storyboard Weddings. Jessica, the blogerina behind Storyboard Weddings thinks it’s hilarious (or crazy) that I walk my kitten on a leash (no joke), so when she asked for an inspiration board I couldn’t help but create a kitten themed wedding. You can view the original […]

marfa, texas (real wedding)

Sometimes I run across a real wedding that is just too special and too perfect not to share bits and pieces of it with you. Emily and Colby’s Marfa, Texas wedding made my heart sing. Everything about it is so amazing! The antlers (lord knows I love me some antlers at a wedding), the bright […]

yellow and gray

Gray and yellow is an ever popular and always trendy color combo for your wedding. It has to be done ‘right’ though – both colors should be muted as a base, sprinkle in some ivory and creams, and then pump up your palette with pops of a brighter yellow. photo credits: outdoor reception area, paper […]

burgers and beer {guest post}

Loving the idea of a ‘summer fun’ poolside wedding with burgers and beer! Use yellows, dusty blues, and browns for a retro mod vibe and of course, rubber duckies as escort cards could steal the show.
