I Love Love Mood Boards // Modern Romantic Inspiration

You guys, I have an exciting projects in the works and this mood board is step one.  Mood boards are actually always step one in my process.  After my our initial client consultation, I get started right away putting together a mood board.  The board can always shift and change, but it's great to have an agreed upon visual north star, depicting our favorite elements. 

This mood board, for my special project, is a beautiful combination of romance and modern details.  The client is looking for decor that is heavy on the greenery and florals, with lots of beautiful personal touches.  The color scheme is romantic with some unexpected touches of blacks and greys.  And the feel is a joyous alfresco celebration that perfectly combines vintage and modern elements.

I Love Love Mood Boards // Moroccan Inspired Wedding

I returned from Marrakech just over a week ago now, and as you can imagine I brought with me all kinds of inspiration.  Some physical, some in photos and some in my travel-lusting memory.  On first sight, the city seems dull and dirty, then you come upon a beautiful door and behind are the most exquisite, colorful details you've ever seen from floor to ceiling.  And the next thing you know, someone is serving you mint tea.  Marrakech a magical place filled with the kindest people, amazing color and of course, beautiful, hand-crafted things that you need to bring home with you (I did anyway).  On the Moroccan high, I put together a mood board that encompasses all the most beautiful parts of the city.

5 Glam Camp Wedding Details

Camp weddings make me happy.  I was a camp consoler one summer and it changed my life.  Ever since, there is a special place in my heart for summer camps and the nostalgia and happiness they evoke.  But not every camp wedding has to be mason jars and canoes, here are five details to make a fabulous, glamorous camp wedding.  Okay, I'll go ahead and say it, "glamping" wedding.

1. a pretty backdrop.  Love that this one combines natural elements with beautiful floral arrangements and lanterns, but pretty lanterns. 

2. a beautiful flower crown.  I know this detail is a little predictable, but look at this image.  It's glamorous and natural and so so pretty.  Bonus if you work in some jewels. 

3. escort cards with a nod to traditional camp activities.  I'm so impressed by the creativity of Michelle Leo Events to come up with an unexpected camp element with a glamorous twist. 

4. A woodsy cake.  Whether its a naked cake bursting with flowers and berries, or a birch tree inspired treat, a lovely cake is a must!

5. and what camp night would be complete without s'mores?  This s'mores bar, styled by Kathryn Wolle is probably the prettiest I've ever seen.
