Ivory Wedding Inspiration

StylingStartsHere__chrisjenn_photos_SSH007_low

This lovely little shoot was taken out at Sand Canyon with Melissa Robles of Styling Starts Here and Chris + Jenn Photos.  ISn’t the background SO pretty?! For the design here, I was going for a beautiful and slightly modern take on the rustic flowers.  I wanted to create something classic and elegant, yet still suitable for an outdoor backdrop.  I used white hydrangeas, soft ivory astilbe, craspedia, amazing ivory/green garden roses,  with accents of millet and ferns.

Pinterest my current obsession…my reason for insomnia…my place for inspiration.  I love it. I use it to get ideas for the house, baby’s first birthday party, what to wear and of course all things weddings!  I find it to be a fantastic tool when consulting with Brides, as their is always a picture of the very exact thing that I am looking to describe! I find that it really helps the non-visual person in explaining just what it is that they are looking for.  It is also great, because there is SO much beautiful creativity out there that it is constantly inspiring me to get better and think outside of the box in all aspects of my design.  Could it get any better?!

One word…YES!

And it just did a few months ago!  This fabulous new site called Lover.ly is like Pinterest but purely for Weddings, whether you are planning your wedding, dreaming about your wedding, you work in the wedding industry or just plain love weddings, it’s the place to be.  All of the fabulous images you see on the wedding blogs are compiled onto this lovely little site with links back to all of their original posts or credits listed for who did the work. You can save all of your most favorite images in “Bundles” and organize them however you wish and you can make it public or private, which is awesome…I have talked to so many brides who wouldn’t pin before Pinterest had the option to make things private because they didn’t want everyone to know what there wedding was going to look like!  Genius! I highly suggest you go check out what they’ve got going on…they add new images daily and they are all AHHH-mazing!
