It's been a pretty fantastic summer with lots of fun travels and exciting life stuff. One of my most special moments was getting engaged in June to my longtime love - my oh my! I am super happy about marrying this cute guy. :)
Now I have to admit, while I love design, writing about design, window shopping design, taking photos of design, I really have never "designed" my ideal wedding.The only wedding thing I have ever really bookmarked was when I tore out a wedding ring from a magazine years ago because I thought it was so pretty. (And guess what, that's the ring my sweet guy got for me! Seriously, it was a total surprise and I still can't believe it!!) So now I am looking at planning my own wedding and I think I am getting into it now. I approached the planning the same way I love with a small space - what do I *love* about it? How do I want to *feel*?
My fiance and I are having our wedding in the late Fall and we are inspired by the season and harvest tones - merigold, pumpkin, saffron, ivy. Of course we do love deep grays and gold tones too so - voila - our color palette was created based on the season we love most - Fall. A few other goodies that we love - cupcakes, salt, pretty flowers, mixing design styles, mixing textures, color and, of course a little Veuve. We are looking at a historic venue but we are definitely not formal so we'll be adding in some of our rustic chic style on a budget. I see a lot of small space DIYs in my future. I put together this digital snapshot to share a few ideas that I am thinking of for our wedding weekend. More to come... :)
