Chesney emailed me with a special request, and since she was kind enough to serve as a guinea pig for the first Snippet & Ink inspiration package, I thought I’d share it here. She and her groom eloped to Japan, and now they went to have a ceremony and reception here that includes friends and family. They are looking for a traditional Southern wedding, in a cherry blossom pink and celadon green palette, that incorporates some Japanese elements. They are folding 1,001 paper cranes themselves for hanging around the dance floor! Here is my interpretation of their event.

Mood: sweet celebration
Palette: cherry blossom pink, celadon green, ivory
