olive branch wedding inspiration board

I’ve been wanting to put together an olive branch themed wedding inspiration board for some time now – it’s just such a classic! Of course I couldn’t help but think of Van Gogh’s The Olive Trees, so I included it in this board. In Italy olive branches (and trees) represent tradition and the world over we all know that the olive branch means peace. Both of these meanings are perfect for a wedding!

If you love the look of this wedding inspiration board then you’ll also adore: tuscany.
