One of my favorite things about Snippet & Ink is that I get to put together boards for all kinds of events. Here is an example of a board that, even though I might not choose it for myself, it’s so fun to imagine.

Mood: formal, classic elegance
Palette: black, white

Cami wrote me to request some help in pulling together a board for her April wedding at the Atlanta History Center’s grand ballroom. Her bridesmaid dresses are brown, and she wants mostly white and green flowers with splashes of pink. There are so many wonderful ways to pull those colors together, so I used the photo Cami sent of her venue as the starting point. What an incredible space! The nicest thing about having a venue like this is that because it’s so beautiful on it’s own, centerpieces are really the only decorating that needs to happen.

Mood: ballroom elegance
Palette: white, brown, green, pink

Since it doesn’t look like I’ll be flying out of the Bay Area any time soon (can we talk about the overturned semis, closed bridges, and crashing debris?), I thought I’d post a board. This is for my sweet friend Michelle who is marrying my other sweet friend Michael in a southern wedding early this summer. I like Michelle’s choice of colors – ivory, olivey green, and coral. I tried to put together a board that is classic and incorporates Southern elements like magnolia flowers and sweet tea.

Mood: classic Southern style
Palette: green, coral, white

If the Barbie Dream House had a garden, this is what a wedding there might look like. I am loving the reclining bride and the pink sugar cupcake.

I cannot get over the gorgeous centerpiece by Michaele Thunen (by far one of the most talented people that I know) that really is the central element in this board. And how wonderful would it be to have lemon pies and blackberry tarts in lieu of the traditional wedding cake.

Mood: elegant countryside
Palette: yellow, purple, greens
