My baby sister is getting married! She seems set on doing most of the planning on her own, but she did give me a little direction so I could work on an inspiration board for her. They’ve picked Lyon’s Farmette in Colorado as their venue, and the date is set for about a year from now, so I went with a “late summer bounty” theme. Lots of deep purple fruit, foliage, and black and white gingham to keep things playful. You’ll probably be seeing a couple more inspiration boards made with Lora’s wedding in mind – hopefully she’ll end up using one of them!

    I love this!!! Congrats to your sister too. What a pretty venue… Reminds me of Bear Flag Farm in Winters, CA – I’ll be shooting a wedding there in a few weeks – very excited to share it with you.

    Very cool that your sister is getting married in COLORADO! That is where I am live! :) :) My little sister got married last weekend– and it was so fun. I loved going through the planning process with her. It was a great sister activity. Congrats to her!
