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

Gold might be my new favorite accent color. It works with so many other colors – hot pink, peach, emerald green, red – and adds luxury to any palette. Inspired by the cover photo from the March 2006 issue of Domino, I’ve paired it with teal and white, and I think it’s a combination of colors that could work in winter, spring, or summer. Gold isn’t as neutral as gray or brown, and if you let it take over I imagine things could get pretty gaudy, but little flashes of gold? Mixed in with another color? Love it.

Mood: bright, shiny
Palette: teal, gold, white

You know I can’t go too many days without posting a green and white inspiration board! I can’t help it! Especially when I see a beautiful photo like the one styled by the lovely, talented Chelsea Fuss – creamy white with a touch of green. I decided to go with a really pale pistachio green to create a soft, clean palette for this wedding board.

Mood: soft, fresh
Palette: pale pistachio green, cream
