Sometimes the simplest inspiration boards take me the longest time to make. I spend more time choosing perfect individual elements, since the palette or theme might be pretty traditional. For today’s garden wedding inspiration board, in the ever-popular palette of pink and green, I’ve used Sally Holmes roses (my mother’s favorite), and bows (on the veil, the invites, the bridesmaid dress, the groom’s tie, the favor cones). Lemonade and garden chairs are perfect for a backyard setting…

Mood: sweet and classic
Palette: garden green, pale rosy pink

Top row from left: veil from Martha Stewart Weddings, letterpress invitation and calligraphy by Laura Hooper, bouquet of Sally Holmes roses and thyme-infused lemonade both from Martha Stewart
Row 2: bud vase with roses from Martha Stewart Weddings, green polka dot favor cones from Wedding Style Guide, photo of vintage short bridal gloves by Wildflowers Photography via Green Wedding Shoes, photo of groom with white jacket and pink striped bow tie by Jose Villa
Row 3: cake centerpiece with sugar flowers by Perfect Endings, pink wedding cake with classic piping from Martha Stewart Weddings, garden chair with Panama hat styled by Chelsea Fuss and photo by Lisa Warninger, pale pink bridesmaid dress with bow detail from J.Crew

    Love this! Perfect for the season! The ballet slipper pink climbing roses in the backyard are blooming and I was just reading about thyme infused lemonade in Real Simple. Keep up the great work!
