One of the sweet comments on my giveaway post was a request for more pink and green. I guess I consider pink and green so classic for a wedding, that I’m always a little afraid that an inspiration board in those colors will seem cliche. But, it’s a classic color combination for a reason – because it’s lovely – so I challenged myself to create a board that used pink and green and still seemed fresh. Here, the green comes mostly from the outdoor venue, and pale pink is in the flowers and other details, such as ribbons tied around glass stems. Vintage elements, such as antique spoons for dessert or coffee, clear drinking glasses, Victorian floral labels, and of course the historic venue, add an extra something special.

Mood: vintage charm
Palette: pale pink, cream, green

    First of all, I clicked through to see that lovely (not strapless, yay!) dress, and discovered it has a detachable overskirt. How smart is that?And second of all, I just wanted to sigh over how lovely your boards always are and how inspiring I find your blog. You know. Since I haven’t done that for 5 days or so. :)

    I love, love, love that plantation house! It’s gorgeous. We just don’t have things like that in the northwest, where a 100-year-old building is considered really old. And of course, the entire board is beautiful and dream-worthy, as always!
