Board #320 | Garden of Joy

I had a request a little while ago that I post some more pink and green inspiration boards, so I wanted to go ahead and do that. But I didn’t want to be too obvious, so I went with a richer pink and a deeper green in creating this wedding board. I think it achieves a good balance of formal English gardens and flirtatious sass.

Mood: formal (and sassy!) English garden
Palette: hedge green, raspberry punch

    So pretty! It would be so cool if you had these inspiration posts organized by color so we could easily go back through them to see the different looks.

  • Anne says:

    Kathryn, your mood boards, the real life weddings, and all other posts on your blog, make me want to get married all over again! To the same man, by the way. Thank you!

  • Katie says:

    Kathryn has tagged the boards with colors and other categories at the bottom of the post so that you can click on the color to see similar ones OR you can search for more specific things up top. I would know, because I spend quite a bit of time oggling over how lovely and pretty the boards are. Thanks, Kathryn!

  • Peonies and Polaroids says:

    Gorgeous gorgeous colours. And you used one of my pictures! I want you to know that when you do that, it’s the highlight of my blogging career!

  • ABC Dragoo says:

    Thank you for using a photo and linking back to my blog! It's always a thrill to check in on Snippet & Ink and see that you've been inspired by something on mine! YAY! I love your inspiration boards.

  • citysage says:

    There’s that gorgeous Polly Wreford shot! I love how you’ve incorporated it into this incredible board. That image of the car driving down the avenue of flowering trees makes me long for spring; and it’s not even officially winter yet!

    You’ve outdone yourself as usual Kathryn :)

  • Renee says:

    I usually am not wild about pink, but you always manage to make EVERYTHING look pretty. This pink is so rich and sophisticated, so different than the pastel girly theme I was think of when I think of pink.

  • I agree with Renee, I love this rich shade of pink – it comes across as elegant, not super girly. Actually, it is making me want that bouquet on my desk right now so I could stare at it while I work!

  • Jena says:

    This is definitely one of my favourites!
    I love the pink punch with flowers.
    I love the pink blossoms on the trees.

    So gorgeous! I really love those deep pinks! Wow. You guys never fail to make me say wow out loud.

  • Rynette says:

    I’m really digging the cake and the boutonierre. Not a big fan of pink…but it looks exceptional!

    I don’t even have a wedding to plan yet, but you better believe it will begin with that crepe myrtle entrance! thank you for inspiring me as always!
