Classic Black, White & Gold Wedding Inspiration

classic-black-and-white

 

The day after Labor Day officially signifies the end of the loose summer schedule and I happily shift back into a routine.  Currently, I’m working on a wedding suite with the requirements of classic and minimal.  I’m struggling a bit with the design because the traditional notions of classic wedding invite aren’t really up my alley.  I do love a good challenge, though, so I’m anxious to get the ideas going.  Whenever I am stumped, I design an inspiration board for the wedding that my invitation could be heralding.  I love the clean lines in the dress and cake in this board, so my lettering and font selection will be clean and void of swirls and swashes.  I definitely want the design to be interesting, though, so some kind of variation is needed.  The jury is out on adding a floral element.  If I do, it will be for the envelope liner.  What do you think?  What does classic + minimal say to you?

Sun-kissed California Wedding

Nothing signifies the closing of summer to us inlanders more than a sun-kissed California wedding.  The neutral palette against the greens is one of my favorites, all beautifully captured by Emily Susan Photography.

A Romantic Naturalist Wedding Inspiration

This has been the most unusual summer here.  While there  have been a string of hot, hot days, most of the mornings have been chilly.  As we head into the early moments of fall, the weather is amazing.  Perfect for me.  We’ve had more rain storms than normal (my thank you’s being shouted to the heavens) which have left me feeling more inspired than ever.  Today’s board is a toast to an inspiring week and a hope that we all savor the fleeting moments around us.

Forest Bridal Shoot // Sneak Peek

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of working with Evelyn Eslava Photography and Nicole of Soil and Stem on a styling project.  Maybe you remember this board that I designed for a post over on the lovely Coco and Mingo blog?  Evelyn loved the board and asked me if I’d style a shoot based on that board.  Of course, I couldn’t resist!  And, I can’t resist sharing a peek at the team’s fabulous work!  (More to come in September!)
