Board #12 – Magnolia beauty

I had a special request this week from a former classmate and friend of mine to put together a board inspired by magnolias with the colors being green, gold and white. I find this color palette especially near and dear because it hearkens back to my southern roots. I grew up climbing magnolia trees with all of my cousins in my great uncle’s front yard and that is a fond memory of my childhood. I think to pay the proper respect to this great southern bloom, one must have a grand southern affair complete with a historic venue (perhaps a plantation home or old courthouse?), classic tuxedos, and beautiful ecru engraved invitations. I even love the idea of the calligraphy being in a beautiful, deep emerald tone. This is absolutely one of my favorite palettes I’ve created and I commend the bride for devising such a unique and heritage-driven theme for her wedding.

Board #11 – Shades of purple and grey

A friend of mine (from why back in elementary school!) requested a board with black, white, grey, and shades of purple. This is a pretty formal and muted palette, so I kicked it up a notch by throwing in a striped motif. Stripes are great because you can incorporate them throughout the wedding, from linens, to attire, to invites, to the cake! Enjoy!

Board #10 – Neutral Beauty

For this board, I decided to tone it down a notch from my typical style and lean towards a more neutral palette. If neutral is done right, it can be really beautiful. I always love to add at least one pop of color – in this case, a pale coral-pink. My personal favorite pic is the groomsmen shot – Leslee Mitchell does beautiful work and 2 of my good friends were groomsmen in this wedding.Inspiration Board #10 Neutral beautyclockwise from top left: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 /
