  1. This board makes me miss the East Coast so much! Also, that bouquet is ridiculously amazing!

  2. Nothing like a bit of nautical inspiration. Love the ideas you’ve suggested here.

  3. I have to agree–that bouquet gorgeous! It’s making me want to change my colors. You know, for the nonexistent wedding I’m having. 😉

  4. I just came across this and had to share it with my fans/friends. I LOVE all the elements you put together and since I’m a wedding officiant in Maine, these elements are dear to my heart. Thanks for sharing a bit of Maine!

  5. Hi! Love the boutonnière! Do you know if the florist made these or if they were bought online and a flower was added? Thanks!

    Can you tell me where I can find the anemone flower with the navy blue center?
