{School Days}: Navy, Gray, Red, Yellow, Chartreuse

{Chartreuse, Red, Yellow, Gray + Navy Blue}

When Janna wrote to me about the sunset ceremony she was planning on her parents front lawn in rural Wisconsin, I was instantly excited about putting together an inspiration board for her. She provided me with so many fun little details. She told me that her family's home was in the country where there was views of rolling hills and trees as far as the eye could see. She said that her guests would be arriving by school bus at 7, and would be invited into the party with fresh fruity beverages and lawn games like croquet and golf.

To add to the fun, Janna wanted there to be a fun photo shoot set up with silly props like over sized glasses, hats and fake mustaches. The ceremony would take place at 8 and would be followed by a pie buffet and dancing until the wee hours of the night! In this inspiration board, I paid attention first and foremost to the things she spoke about. The school bus for transportation, the fruity drinks, and the crowd pleasing lawn games. To add my own touch to the party, I gave groomsmen a casual look by having them wear the gray vests that Janna had talked about along with good old fashioned blue jeans. A little preppy, a little down home...the perfect compliment to the bridesmaids navy blue dresses. Guest went home with red lollipops and personalized thank you notes from the bride and groom.
