It’s been a month since I posted any inspiration boards, but they’re back! Lately I’ve found myself drawn to the idea of simpler, smaller weddings – think city hall ceremony followed by a dinner party reception at your favorite restaurant – so that’s what we have here today. But simple doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style – there are so many ways to add whimsy and personality to simple wedding plans without going crazy or over-the-top. Posters are an unexpected way to invite your guests to celebrate with you, and quirky hand-lettered envelopes add to their uniqueness. Pale pink candles make for chic centerpieces, especially when displayed in modern glass candlesticks that you can gift to your guests when they head home. And instead of traditional wedding cake, see if your reception venue/caterers will work with you to hand out small servings of cotton candy.

Mood: simple city hall chic
Palette: black and white, gray, barely there pink

Cristen and Scott from W. Scott Chester Photography sent over these sweet photos from Sabrina and Reg’s engagement session, taken at and near the couple’s Georgia home. Also, who needs special props and ensembles when you’ve got beautiful butterflies making cameo appearances…

Congratulations to Sabrina and Reg, and thank you to W. Scott Chester Photography for sharing these darling photos with us – you can see even more from this shoot over at their blog.

Oh, and stop by later today because inspiration boards are back!

Have I shared my love of 8mm film with you? I love the nostalgia of it, I love the sweetness of it, and I wish I could afford to use it for capturing everyday moments – which is why it’s so fun to see couples using it for love shoots! Meg and Ty (and their dog Norah!) hired Buzz Media Company to shoot this 8mm of them at a local winery, and they were kind enough to share it with us…

Congratulations Meg and Ty, and thank you so much to Erica and Mike at Buzz Media Company for sending this 8mm over for us to enjoy.

How wonderful that we get this day every year to take stock of those things we’re grateful for. There are so many things in my life for which I am grateful, and you, my dear readers, are one of them. Thank you for everything you do, and for helping to make Snippet & Ink what it is. And before everyone heads out for the beginning of the holiday feasting and family good-times, a mid-week, pre-holiday list of links for you!
