Board #469 | Nest and Petal

It’s been awhile since I posted a rustic barn inspiration board, and since it finally felt like spring here yesterday, I thought that today I’d post one that combines those two things. A lucky horseshoe motif on the invitations hints at the country location – and maybe set up a horseshoe pit for your guests to enjoy during cocktail hour. We see so many autumn barn weddings, but white flowers, blossoming branches and chocolate quail eggs (in a little nest!) mean Spring, which I think is a nice “theme” for a slightly formal ranch wedding.

Mood: rustic, elegant spring wedding
Palette: nest brown, petal white

    I am dying over the first pic (top left). I ride competitively, and never imagined a barn reception could be so lovely. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    Wow, seriously, I know I say this all the time but this one is totally one of my favorites. I love the rustic chicness with the soft, neutral palette. Absolutely incredible.
