Board #567 | Late Summer Sunlight

Mood: playful, rustic, low-key
Palette: black, white, honey gold, green, tan

I love black and white as a way to dress up a rustic event – it seems sort of unexpected and even a little bit modern. Here it’s more black and tan, I guess, and the effect is warm and a little bit playful, especially with details like funnel cakes and a silhouette artist. Dahlias and sunflower centers tiptoe back and forth between summer and fall, and a rustic venue feels like the perfect place to be as one season transitions into the next…
