70 degrees and sunny today! I love you all, but I’m putting my laptop away for a few hours and sitting outside by the lake with a book.

So excited about two new websites – jewelry and hair pretties!

What to wear to a summer wedding.

Retro-inspired love shoot.

Inspired by this terra cotta and navy palette.

Gia Canali’s vintage photo processes, via Style Me Pretty.

Perfectly modern and elegant invites.

Sassy bright veils!

Cut paper is the prettiest.

Owl as wedding accessory?

Have a lovely weekend!

Napa Valley might seem like a wedding cliche, but there’s a reason for it – California’s wine country is classic, gorgeous and romantic, and I thought it would be a nice way to end this series of regionally-inspired boards. I obviously haven’t even begun to cover all of the possibilities with only seven boards, so I’d love to hear your ideas. What regions do you have in mind? How would you play up that region in a wedding?

A rustic, quaint log chapel, a bride in cowboy boots, horseshoes, s’mores, and a mechanical bull – all perfect elements for a wedding in Wyoming. And how about a boutonniere made from a hand-tied fly? Incorporate wild grasses into your bouquets and centerpieces, and wrap vases with birch bark, or maybe use vintage fishing creels in lieu of vases.

Mood: summer in the mountains
Palette: barnwood, wild grass, aspen

In this Midwestern wedding board, pale pastels work well with golden wheat. Cross-stitch invitations and quilts play up folk-art traditions. Overall, a charming and low-key wedding in the heartland…

Mood: feminine folk-art, rustic charm
