I couldn’t let December get away without posting at least one inspiration board, and I knew it had to be a Christmas-y, winter-y one! Right now, I’m loving white and gold – it’s warm and rich, yet it can be surprisingly simple. Here, I’ve imagined decorating with wreaths on the doors and windows, pillar candles on the table, and whimsical menus and stationery. Instead of nutmeg, garnish eggnog with tiny flakes of edible gold. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, how about a gingerbread “town square” cake? A long-sleeved lace dress is a perfectly timeless choice for a winter bride.

Mood: winter warm, sweet and simple
Palette: golden ochre, eggnog white

Top row from left: Chez Panisse menu by Cynthia Warren (photo by Aya Brackett), gold wreath and eggnog both from Martha Stewart
Row 2: church photo by Mark Staff, pillar candle centerpiece from Martha Stewart via This is Glamorous
Row 3: gold frame and leaves from Matthew Mead, solitaire diamond ring by Blanca Monros Gomez, photo of vintage inspired lace dress by Angela Anderson via Ruffled, gingerbread house cake from Martha Stewart

    Beautiful board! The church is Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton SC and the photographer, Mark Staff – was my wedding photographer. Glad to see his amazing work on here. I am his biggest fan. I love Snippet and Ink – so beautiful.
