There’s no reason pink has to be set aside for fall weddings; just pair it with a more typical fall color. Here I’ve used copper, and the pink almost ends up being more of an accent color, which I think works. Also, this color combination is a nice twist on the ubiquitous pink and brown, with copper’s ruddy metallic patina lending more complexity than a flat chocolate. How would you make pink work for a fall wedding?

Mood: feminine, complex
Palette: copper, pink

I’ve been lucky enough to live in some really wonderful places, including New York, and the only trouble with moving around so much in the last seven years is that it gives me more places to miss. Rather than a sleek, modern, minimalist take on urban, I wanted to go more classic. The two main points of inspiration for this board are the exterior of Aureole (one of the better meals I’ve had in my life) which is so unassumingly chic and so classic New York, and the bride in a trench coat – how cool and sophisticated do you have to be to pull off a trench coat over your wedding gown? I imagine an intimate candle-lit ceremony followed by an exquisite dinner party, and I love the idea of asking guests (however circuitously) to give favorite books in lieu of other gifts.

Mood: no fuss sophistication, urban classic
Palette: chocolate, brick, gold, white

Ever since Lisa Lefkowitz posted a darling kid shoot on her blog with some lemonade stand photos, I’ve been dreaming up a wedding board loosely based on that idea – of a lemonade stand. Not all-out lemons and yellow, but rather a rustic, slightly nostalgic look. To achieve this, I incorporated a worn wooden-framed chalkboard stand, a porch full of rocking chairs, a gold heart locket, and the charming old-timey typography that Jessica Hische designed for a lemonade label.

Mood: rustic nostalgia
Palette: yellow, green, touches of pale pink

I don’t claim to love the winter or anything, but I can appreciate how really beautiful it can be. And I couldn’t resist creating a winter wedding board based on this beautiful photo by Jacqueline Veissid. I love the combination of the stark white and bare branches with sweet birds and pops of red – perfect for winter.

Mood: winter chic
Palette: cool white, red, gray-brown
