This incredible arrangement by Tage Andersen, via Twelve Chairs (I can’t read it, but it is a beautiful blog), inspired me to make this board. I haven’t seen Love in the Time of Cholera, but it is one of my favorite books by far, and this inspiration board is how I translate it into a wedding.

Mood: tropical refinery, New World elegance
Palette: mahogany, tan, green, gold
