{Wedding Style}: Color Me Inspired!

One of the things that I love most about inspiration boards is the fact that they have the ability to transport you to another place and time. A rustic image of a barn...a beautiful wreath full of texture...a creative dessert display...a gorgeous handmade clutch... When carefully curated by color and with just the right mixture of details, it's very easy to feel as if the wedding you're looking at actually existed. Inspiration is funny like that. It challenges you to imagine, to dream and to really see the possibilities when it comes to adding creative touches.

Inspiration boards have given me the opportunity to tie all kinds of ideas together through theme and color palette. They enable me to share my visions with you. And for that reason alone, I love them. What sort of details inspire you the most? Are you drawn to creative food displays? Bouquets perhaps? Or maybe you're seriously smitten with all things paper? In any case, I really do think that there's something to be said about wedding inspiration! The world of wedding planning has been changed forever. So what do you think about these Fall boards? Do you have a favorite?

You never cease to amaze with your rustic chic themes and getting the colors so right on . . .

I'm a purple girl so I adore the Plum palette, although all of them are lovely as always. The most inspiring details to me are pretty papers. I spent the most time on my wedding invitations & other paper accessories & I always like seeing other people's invitations.

oh each one is pretty special but the last one has to be my favorite of the group.



Marcela @ Wholesale Flowers Co. November 17, 2011

I am a purple girl as well, so the plum palette is perfect for me, but all of them are lovely!

Hey just found your blog, lovely stuff!

Maybe I'm missing something, but I think you should give credit and links back to the photos/photographers and ideas you are using. Not only is it a netiquette and copyright concern, but also it would help people looking for inspiration and where to find items, vendors, etc.

I hope you consider it, as a photographer I'd hate to find my own work used somewhere without even a mention or a link back to me.



Unknown November 17, 2011

the last one is my absolute fave, b/c of that bowtie (and the palette of course!)

The Perfect Palette November 17, 2011

love this site - always such an inspiration.

Kate/MagnoliaRouge November 17, 2011

Love them all.... the colours in the last one are gorgeous and of course I'm a little partial to the lavender one since those pics are from my shoot :-)

Much as I'm in awe of your color expertise, Chrissy, another huge plus of your posts is how expressively you write! So, it's always such a pleasure to visit your site. (Btw, the board with plum & lavender is sooo charming!)
