Big Top Love

June 21, 2011

Although circus themed weddings were all the rage a few years ago, they’ve seemed to make quite a comeback with the release of the beautiful love story, Water for Elephants. I myself have been reading the book and refuse to see the film until I’m finished! The amazing visual language and classic time period of it all is what inspired me to create this post. I know it’s not a look for everyone, but there’s no reason that little bits and pieces of it couldn’t be subtly incorporated into your own special day!

Good morning lovely readers! Here’s a little sweet inspiration to start the week. This board was inspired by the spectacular carnival carousel image in the first row. Love the soft colors… makes me think of cotton candy.

Peacock Feathers

December 9, 2009

I’ve noticed quite a few brides have been incorporating peacock feathers in their wedding decor recently. Peacock feathers have such a distinctive look, they can easily become an overwhelming element if they’re not used carefully. I think it would be lovely if a wedding is inspired by the rich colors and luxe feel of peacock feathers while the actual feathers are only used sparingly.
