After weeks of cluttering my hard drive with photos and vintage inspiration boards from numerous, scattered wedding blogs, I found that not only was a cohesive, gorgeous wedding style not magically coming together on its own, but that I was confusing myself to a ridiculous extent. I have a problem. I fall in love with photos. As a photographer, that’s great. As a bride to be trying to pull together a wedding style, not so much. I was being drawn to way too many different looks. And lets face it, there are SO many gorgeous wedding looks out there! Picking just ONE is difficult! (And even more so for the artistically minded). I was completely lost.
So in an attempt to de-clutter both my mind and my desktop, I decided to draw inspiration as I should have from the start – from the things my fiance and I love. Not just images I love, but the things in our life that we are both truly inspired by. We both love books and music. I love classic elegance and vintage details. He loves modern simplicity. I love the ocean. We both love color. Things started to come together…
Our blue, grey, and chartreuse, anthropologie-inspired soiree was born. Think classic, Jane Austen elegance with pops of modern color and hand crafted details.
And Christmas lights. Lots and lots of Christmas lights…
