Board #322 | All is Calm, All is Bright

I thought I’d get in the holiday spirit with a week of winter wedding inspiration boards. Today’s board is not just a warm and wintry wedding, but it’s also a new look at pink and green. I imagine this wedding taking place at home in the depth of a snowy winter, with lots and lots of candleglow, and touches of greenery in the details. Greet guests with miniature cups of hot chocolate and marshmallows. Set the ceremony up at the fireplace – even if it’s not a working fireplace, you can fill it with large candles, line the mantle with them too, and light those. Give your attendants cardigans (personalized with their initials) to keep warm.

Mood: warm, light
Palette: pastel pink, pale yellow, boxwood green

    Oh, I just love it – everything about it! This might be my new favorite save Little Prince (nothing will ever beat that for me, I don’t think).

  • Lucy & Madi says:

    How beautiful! I love the whole concept, lots of snow and candlelight=magical!

  • annabelle says:

    Absolutely beautiful. It’s the soft pink and green spin-off on festive winter that Blueprint Mag was going for last December (remember the sparkly pink tree?), but you’ve captured it perfectly here. Btw, my mom was tickled to death with the three green/orange boards you emailed, so thank you again, Kathryn!

  • Kate says:

    Just when I thought I was tired of pink and green. That’s spectacular. You are such a talent! You have a great eye. You should really starting charging and make people inspiration boards to help with their planning. I know I’d pay!

  • Veiled Vows says:

    Wow, this is probably my favorite board. That is really hard to say since I love all of them so much but it is so romantic and simple!

  • sweatergirl says:

    I’m so excited! A full week of winter inspiration boards?! Count me in!

  • Jennifer says:

    I really like this. I want my home to look like this board lol. Too bad I live in Georgia, where snow is a very rare occasion.

  • ZenadiaDesign says:
