Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.
I was recently asked by Valerie over at The Wedding Shoebox to design an inspiration board for my own wedding, if I were to do it all over again. I have to admit, this was challenging. I see so many amazing images/ideas on a daily basis, and I’m so inspired by so many different things, it was a bit hard to focus. A definite A.D.D. moment.
Nonetheless, I pulled it together and this is what I came up with. Hop over to my In Her Shoebox post to read more about the thought process behind the board.

I’m not sure if anyone ever gets married on Thanksgiving weekend but it occurred to me that it would probably be a lovely time for an intimate Fall wedding. Since families gather together to celebrate anyway, it could be a great opportunity to also celebrate a new union with family and a handful of close friends. Warm, rich Fall colors, an intimate setting, a hearty meal at a beautiful estate table and lots of love… sounds like a great way to start the holiday season.

Here in the South, the weather stays nice pretty late into the Fall which makes it feasible to have an outdoor wedding even in early November. I actually went to a friend’s wedding around this time last year (November 1st, to be exact) and it was 72 degrees – just perfect for their lakeside ceremony.
If you’re in the South, I think a wedding in a formal garden, filled with sculpted evergreens, stone statues and architectural details would be lovely and unexpected for a Fall wedding.
