Yes, I know – we’ve already covered how much I love green and white, and whenever I’m feeling pressed for a color palette, I challenge myself to make a green and white inspiration board that looks new. I’m not sure if this succeeds at that, but I sure do love the various shades here, and the old fashioned garden look. For any of you who are struggling with choosing wedding colors, I suggest that you strongly consider this simple palette. It will work in almost any venue, every season, and it can be made to look however you like, from romantic to traditional to sleek and modern.

Mood: old-fashioned garden romance
Palette: bottle green, olive, chalk

Well friends, I’m finally back! With an interstate move and a trip to check out wedding venues, I’m going to be quite the busy bee over these next couple weeks, so I might be a bit slow to respond to emails, but I will do my best to stay on top of things at Snippet & Ink! I know that for many, Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, so I wanted to post an inspiration board that conveyed that sweet and simple summer feel. Baskets of fruit serve as centerpieces, lunch is simple sandwiches and soda, and polka dots add whimsy. Enjoy!

Jocelyn Mathewes of Studio Mathewes Photography says that the best part of her job is that it feels like play – she loves being part of a couple’s special day, and getting to help them save the memories from that day. And Jocelyn’s love for her work comes through in the lovely images that she captures – see for yourself!

This is just a small sampling of some of my favorite shots, but you can see so many more over at the Studio Mathewes website, and their blog of course. Beautiful photos, Jocelyn!

Well friends, I thought I would have a little more free time (and a little more internet access!) on my trip this weekend, but it looks like I’m going to be a bit of a delinquent blogger until I’m back home in a few days. I hope you’ll enjoy these fun links in the meantime, have a wonderful long weekend, and forgive my lack of posting…

Ponytail bride.

How about a road trip in one of these?

If I were to raise chickens

Beautiful cut-paper invites.

Send someone a party in their mailbox!

So many things I love about this photo shoot.

I kind of wish I could sew and make my honey a love letter like this.

Sometimes eloping sounds just right.

DIY Louboutins?

A delightfully retro beach engagement shoot.

Happy weekend lovelies! I’ll be back soon!
