Board #129 | Ariella-Inspired, Part One

Each of the three boards I will post today draws its inspiration from one of three arrangements by Ariella Chezar that appeared in the Winter 2007 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, in a spread called “Centerpieces with Fruit and Flowers.”

This board was created for Cole, a bride with a distinct and original idea of what she wants for her wedding. With a bespoke tweed suit for the groom, and a blend of Edwardian and roaring 20’s style for the bride, a love of birds and books, and a band composed of the couple’s friends, I wanted to pull together a board that would reflect the couple’s unique style as well as the rustic venue. Ariella’s centerpiece, which includes plums, pears and roses, seemed like a good focal point.

Mood: distinctive romance
Palette: red, purple, green, brown

    I stumbled upon your blog, and have to say I love it! I noticed the picture of the Blue Dress Barn, which I did a wedding at last year–it’s such a unique locale!
