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

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