Not too long ago, Erika over at the fabulous and inspiring Urban Grace Interiors featured Snippet & Ink on her blog. While she and I were emailing back and forth, she thought of a fun challenge for me: create an inspiration board based on a fabric sample. So here is the fabric sample…
…and here is the board. A slightly beachy, slightly nautical, very preppy Hamptons wedding in navy and green.

Mood: preppy seaside
Palette: navy, green, white

Vivacious is the best word I can think to describe Kelly. She is one of those people who has this energy that just makes you want to be around her. She is fun, outgoing and hilarious, so I think pink is a fantastic color choice for her wedding. I also thought I’d include some fun details, like a stack of donuts in place of a cake, and sparklers as a send off.

Mood: fun, vibrant
Palette: shades of pink, ivory

We finished up last week with a French flea market wedding, and we’re starting this week with what I imagine a chic Paris wedding might look like. Mostly white, with some black and gold. The Greek island, Italian courtyard, French styled boards are making me think I want a European vacation…

Mood: chic, sophisticated
Palette: white, black, gold

I saw these wonderful invitations on Bird and Banner, and then Pam over at Housemartin posted her gorgeous bouquet that she designed for Oregon Bride, and they inspired this board – a French flea market wedding. Paper ephemera, vintage fabrics, loose floral arrangements, pastels…

Mood: French flea market, shabby chic
Palette: pastel pink, green, orange, blue….

Chesney emailed me with a special request, and since she was kind enough to serve as a guinea pig for the first Snippet & Ink inspiration package, I thought I’d share it here. She and her groom eloped to Japan, and now they went to have a ceremony and reception here that includes friends and family. They are looking for a traditional Southern wedding, in a cherry blossom pink and celadon green palette, that incorporates some Japanese elements. They are folding 1,001 paper cranes themselves for hanging around the dance floor! Here is my interpretation of their event.

Mood: sweet celebration
Palette: cherry blossom pink, celadon green, ivory
