Board #319 | Waitin’ on a Sunny Day

After spending the day driving through the drizzle and fog of the Pacific Northwest, I was really in the mood for this warm and sunny inspiration board. A casually rustic wedding in late summer or early fall, with picnic baskets and pie and cocktails. And a fabulous feather in your hair! How are you keeping warm with winter setting in?

Oh, also! I managed to mis-label one of my images here and can’t find the proper source, so if you know who made the sweet tree card, leave a comment so I can add a link.

Mood: warm, rustic
Palette: iced tea, yellow, cream

    Wow that board is great, love the ideas!

    As a bride-to-be ever since my fiance proposed to me with a gorgeous diamond engagement ring from I have been dreaming of a rustic or backyard wedding.

    The palette you put together really inspires me and helps me decide on what we want our wedding party to look like in the summertime!

    I’m waiting for that sunny day as well over here in cold Ohio! Brrrr… Awesome color scheme!

    The cool brown tones coupled with the orange hues… is a calming addition. Makes me want slice of pie and cup of hot cocoa!
