My neighbors’ garden is just full of blooms – blush-colored roses, dark purple clematis, plus a few things I don’t know the names of. It just feels like the time of year for lushness, which is what initially inspired this board full of blackberries, quince, and garden romance. Berry purple is such a sweetly rich color – if any color has a taste, I think it’s this one. Paired with plenty of greenery and it stays fresh, rather than cloying. I can imagine this look in any outdoor venue, especially one with an abundance of plants and vines.

    Beautiful palette. I like to fantasize that my wedding will be that well coordinated. Reaching a brief moment of “overwhelming” realization of what’s still needed for the big day.

    Stop. Breathe. Reboot.

    It’s all about the love.

    ~Thanks for your inspirations Kathryn!
