The initial inspiration for this board was the incredible turquoise chandelier – how amazing would it be to have several of those adorning your reception space? It is opulent, yet still somewhat modern, which is what I tried to do with this board. The combinations of turquoise and black, orchids and damask, I think make for an interesting look that is dramatic and elegant.

Mood: opulent, modern
Palette: turquoise, black, white

    I absolutely love your site! It really helped me get my wedding started and organized. How do you choose weddings to feature on your site? Where did you find your logo font? I love it!
