Vineyard weddings are so timeless and beautiful, yet I haven’t done very many vineyard inspiration boards. I thought I’d use one of my new favorite fall colors, aubergine, and use it in this formal, rustic vineyard wedding board. Grapes, violets, an intimate candlelit dinner. Change the floral and harvest elements slightly, and this venue and color scheme could work in any season.

Mood: formal, intimate, vineyard
Palette: grape purple, vine green

I know we’re descending into winter, but I couldn’t resist the cheery inspiration of this gorgeous bouquet by The Green Vase and the Pierre Deux pattern. Not to mention both of the darling dresses from Flora & Henri. So spring it is. Though I didn’t fully embrace the bird motif in this board, it certainly lends itself to that. I hope this gives you a little smile whether or not it’s snowing where you are.

Mood: country spring sweetness
Palette: French country blue and yellow

We’ve had flurries twice so far, and the temperature is way down, so I thought it might be time for a winter wedding board. I’m not quite ready to go all out with snowflakes and pinecones; instead I thought I’d ease into the season with fresh green in the form of wheatgrass centerpieces and a moss wreath, and bright white in the form of cable-knit details. Winter weddings lend themselves to being more formal than in other seasons, but I wanted to keep this one playful with things like pinwheels, cupcakes and and a gold polka-dotted dress.

Mood: playful, winter
Palette: grass green, white

Elizabeth Dye‘s darling “cupcake” dress inspired this gold and white wedding board. I imagine a sweet garden ceremony, followed by a simple luncheon, and of course cupcakes for dessert! Gold can be so over the top, but in doses, and with a vintage touch, it is nothing but charming.
