Inspiration #130- Shadework

Balloons, mismatched bridesmaids, and bow ties! I'm loving the colors in this board lately, especially the magenta-ish purple! The touches of yellow are fun too, I love the sunny element yellow brings to any color palette.

Favorite Photo Friday #17- Urban Jungle

There are many elements that I love about this photo. First off, I'm enchanted by the contrast of the urban, garage type building with their formal attire. Of course, I adore the mismatched bridesmaids dresses and I equally love that the groomsmen are just in vests.

Theme Thursday #22- Scrabble!

I'm really loving all these quirky, kitchsy touches I've been finding lately! The use of scrabble tiles as a wedding element is ingenious. I especially love it as a place marker for smaller weddings.

Inspiration #129- Chalk & Pearls

Ok, I have to admit I have a new crush... on chalkboards elements in weddings! I think they are such a fun, inexpensive, unexpected and eco-friendly touch! Pearls are a very classic element so I decided to combine them with the modern touch of chalkboards to come up with this board.

Inspiration #128- First Signs of Spring

I love spotting the first signs of spring! There is so much beauty to be found in the first few robins and daffodils that you find, knowing that the lovely spring weather is here to stay. This inspiration board uses sunny daffodil yellow and soft robin's egg blue for its color palette.

Inspiration #127- Pick Me, Pick Me... No, No, No! Pick Me!

These boards were requested by a bride who is trying to decide on which accent color to use. So do you prefer navy + gray with kelly green accents or navy + gray with hot pink accents?

Monday Funday #4- Fun with Citrus!

Love the fun tights in this board, they are definitely a fun touch!


Inspiration #125- Bay Side Wedding

Wow, I can't believe I've created 125 (well really more since I don't count the theme Thursday or Monday fun day boards!) inspiration boards!! I'm thinking about having another give away when I reach 150 so stay tuned for that :]

Anyway, this is a requested board for a bride getting married in Morro Bay who didn't want to go with a beach-y theme. Her color palette is gray and blush pink and I thought adding some pearl jewelry would be a fun hint at beachy-ness without being theme-y.

Favorite Photo Friday #15- On the Lake...

Um... yes please! These pictures make me want to get married near a lake, and take pictures on a boat. They are just so sweet and lovely! Go check out the rest of the wedding here.

Theme Thursday #21- Viva Las Vegas!

Being that I spent last weekend in Vegas for my best friends birthday I thought it was fitting to have a Vegas themed board! I especially love the custom playing card favors and the save the date!

Inspiration #123- How Sweet it is

I went with a sweet treat theme for this board after seeing this on Style Me Pretty. I stuck with their aqua and red color scheme while adding a few pops of pink along the way!

Monday Funday #3- Christian Dior Runway Inspired

I definitely adore this color scheme! Bright pink, turquoise and black really pop together! I am also a big fan of the small hints of black and white patterns found in this board.

Inspiration #122- Peach, Gray and Cerulean

This was a requested board :] The bride wanted to use pale peach and shades of gray with hints of cerulean blue. She also wants to incorporate a slight 50s flair, which I think the wedding dress in this board really fits.

Inspiration #121- Cold Hands, Warm Heart

This board was inspired by the cute snowmen picture in the bottom left corner found on I Heart Love. It's really fun to find inspiring images that aren't directly related to weddings and make a board around them! I went with a snow white, dusty pink, champagne and gold color scheme for this board and I think it turned out great! I'd love to hear your thoughts/comments/feedback :]

Bouquet Love #3!

Loving all the colors and flowers used in these bouquets and the centerpiece too. They just feel like spring to me! I also love the brides birdcage veil and one strapped dress.

Monday Funday #2- Invitation Inspired

This board was inspired by the whimsy and colors of an invitation created by The Wedding Paper Divas. What do you think? I love the colors, patterned bridesmaids dress and the brides fun turquoise jewelry!

Inspiration #120- Thumbprint Tree

One of my favorite guestbook ideas out there right now is the thumbprint tree, so I made a board off a very cute one I spotted. I'm also loving this combination of kelly green and rich jewel tone purple. I think this color scheme would work well in any season!
