This board is for Emily, who is having a wedding in a central California. The venue has a slight outdoorsy, country feel, but Emily doesn’t want her wedding to be overly rustic. Emily wanted something that would reflect a swing dance vibe, without looking like you’ve stepped through a time warp. She also mentioned that the property has a building designed to look like a retro ice cream parlor. I used a white and red striped soda straw as my main inspiration and, working with these points, I came up with the following board.

Mood: a little bit country, a little bit swing
Palette: white, red, some yellow and brown
