I Love Love Mood Boards // Neutral Color

It's been a while, but I am inspired and back at it, creating content for you, my brides and friends seeking inspiration for pretty weddings and gatherings!  Today's mood board is a personal one.  This weekend I put together a giant inspiration board, out side of the computer, with actual magazine tears, to inspire my personal and professional brands.  You see, I have always been a maximal kind of person.  I am a collector and a lover of things and color.  But there is a piece of me who is been influenced by the minimal movement.  I have paired down, developed a look a little more sophisticated than my former, loud vintage prints.  This mood board is inspired by my personal style, classic with a twist, where modern and bohemian meet, the colors are colors, but they don't scream, they speak softly.  I just rattled off a bunch of oxymorons, but I think they all accurately describe me and this mood board.  

This Week We Love Loved...

At home, I'm in the throws of planning my son's first birthday party, and of course going overboard with handmade decorations, then piled a mini photoshoot on top of that.  But at the office, we have a bit of down time, so I have been getting back to my blog browsing and absolutely soaking it all in.  Hope you enjoy my favorite picks of the week, they are happy, colorful and full of whimsy, just like I like it!

I'm obsessing over this flowerless, super affordable centerpiece alternative, from Green Wedding Shoes

And Something Turquoise had a slam dunk with a wedding that beautifully captured a bounty of personal details. 

Hope you have a happy weekend! 

This Week We Love Loved...

Anyone else feel under water this week?  Cue the hand raised emoji.  I want the joy of holidays to last all year, but I want the rush of December to end as quick as possible.  I did find a few minutes to check out the pretties from the blog world. 

This simple bouquet by Celeste Green looked stunning at this couples surprise(!) San Francisco/Big Sur wedding, over on Once Wed

Velvet green wedding party and perfectly done holiday decor made the perfect backdrop for this DIY Christmas wedding on Something Turquoise

Can't get this Haley Paige gown out of my head.  Check out the rest of the pretty celebration on Green Wedding Shoes

Also from GWS, a real wedding dream team came together for this insane "smoke bomb" styled shoot. 

This Week We Love Loved...

It suddenly became fall this week on the East Coast.  Soup's on, mums are popping up and it's pumpkin-flavored everything!  and on the wedding blogs things are a little moodier.  Here were some of my favs of the week.  

A fall bouquet by Foxtail Florals that's a perfect balance of happy and moody.  See more Green Wedding Shoes
