midnight in the garden of good and evil

This southern gothic styled wedding inspiration board was created for Ashley of Blush Love Wed. She certainly threw me a challenge when she requested something based off the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which I (still!) haven’t read yet. I did some research and decided to go with a southern gothic […]

where the wild things are

It got pretty pink and girly around here yesterday with think pink so I thought we’d rough it up a bit with a Where the Wild Things Are wedding! This classic picture book by Maurice Sendak isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when one starts looking for wedding inspiration, but it would make […]

anna karenina

Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy, is the (tragic – but you can ignore that bit for your wedding) love tale of the married Anna and the oh-so-handsome Count Vronsky. 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 […]

the great gatsby (reader request)

Many thanks to my very well-read friend Melanie for requesting this board! I couldn’t have asked for a better source of inspiration. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of my favorite books out there and the new movie preview (seriously can’t wait to see this) was chock full of eye candy. I […]

james and the giant peach

I loved the book James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. Little James, who is oppressed by two evil aunts, escapes on a giant peach with magical insect friends – it’s the best! And let’s imagine for a second that little James grows up and gets married – this is what I think his […]

anne of green gables

“Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive–it’s such an interesting world. It wouldn’t be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There’d be no scope for imagination then, would there?” – Anne of Green […]

great expectations

She was dressed in rich materials–satins, and lace and silks — all of white. Her shoes were white. And she had a long white veil dependent from her hair, and she had bridal flowers in her hair, but her hair was white. Some bright jewels sparkled on her neck and on her hands, and some […]

parisian pinks

“…but for all that, she was still a girl at heart and loved pretty things.” – Shades of Milk and Honey, Mary Robinette Kowal. We all know that pink is for girls and blue is for boys, and I’d always assumed that was ‘nurture’ instead of ‘nature’ – society just made it that way for […]

The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro is a heartbreakingly romantic book (and movie) that tells the […]
