Fancy This...

Inspired Intern: Drift Away… (in blue)

February 3, 2011

I’ve noticed that the nautical theme has been popping up more and more in fashion and home decor. Looking at the colored stripes, sails and anchors helps me think of beaches and the ocean… somewhere far, far away from where I am now! I decided to do a two-part post today because there is just so much out there to be inspired by! I broke them down by color – first up: nautical blues…

TONYA’S FAVORITE DETAIL: In keeping with the Caribbean theme of the wedding, one of our favoritedetails was the Mudda Sally and Tuk Band that performed while leading the wedding party from the ceremony area to the reception.

STATIONERY: Tonya and Brent chose the Anna Beth stationery suite, including Save The Dates, Wedding Invitations, Wedding Programs and Thank You Notes. Although the Anna Beth suite is typically printed on Ecru paper only, Tonya chose to do a paper swap and had it printed on our White Deckle Edge paper instead. Turned out great!
WHY DID TONYA CHOOSE THIS INVITATION?: It reflected the simple garden elegance we had envisioned for our wedding.

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT: The impromptu pool party that happened during the reception! Brent was tossed in by some of the groomsmen and other friends (after getting the ok from my mom). The rest of the wedding party soon followed and ultimately, so did I (after a wardrobe change, of course)!

Wedding Inspiration

A Pre-Wedding Fiesta

May 20, 2010

As I mentioned yesterday, I designed an inspiration board for Cyd over at The Sweetest Occasion which in turn inspired yesterday’s freebie printable template. In case you didn’t have a chance to check out the board, I thought I would share it here as well. Enjoy!
