I know this palette isn’t especially original, but I still find it utterly lovely. A variety of sweets and flowers, a stack of books in lieu of the ring pillow, the bride in a gorgeous chocolate gown, and a lovely little box of found objects add whimsy to this romantic wedding board.

Mood: romantic, whimsical
Palette: chocolate, Tiffany blue, ivory

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.

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?
