Vineyard Wedding in Shades of Plum

How many states do you know that has world class beaches, shopping, amusement parks, AND vineyards? Not too many states coming to mind, do they? Here in Florida we are lucky to have all of those, and so much more. People often forget that we have a number of great wineries here, perfect for an end of summer wedding. This week, I channeled the beauty of wineries from around the world, with shades of plum purples, to create this week’s vineyard wedding idea board. Here’s what I had in mind:

Rustic Sunflower and Navy Country Sunset Reception

“Never look directly at the sun. Instead, look at the sunflower.” This quote resonates seamlessly with this week’s wedding and party idea board. Picture a rustic country soiree, with lots of lanterns filled with candles, and vibrant sunflowers everywhere you look. Hints of navy help balance out the bright yellows in the sunflowers, and add pops of color to the rustic elements.

I’d love to see this summer celebration take place outside on a beautiful country property, perhaps with rolling hills and a vintage barn a little off in the distance.  If you felt so compelled to, this party idea board could easily transform into a rustic country wedding filled with the same sunflowers and navy blue elements. A natural branch altar adorned with sunflowers and navy ribbons would be all you need to add. And I’ll be the first to say I’m not normally one to choose country anything, but sunflowers have always been a favorite of mine. They have such a happy energy that they seem to radiate out, naturally making them the perfect flower to be at the center of this event design. I can only imagine what the ambiance would be like after the sun sets, as the candles are all flickering and enhancing the glow of the sunflowers that are everywhere you look. I bet it would be magical!

Relaxed Cabin Engagement Party {with a Moose?}

This post is for the SUPER chilled, incredibly relaxed couples who love the mountains. The couple that is most comfortable in jeans and a comfy shirt, and are up for hiking any day. The nature loving couple that doesn’t need all the fluff and formalities, and just wants to ENJOY the moment.

I’m picturing this couple’s engagement party at a beautiful cabin in the woods. It’s chilly out, plenty of snuggling is going on, and warm comfort foods are in abundance. There are fires going, and conversations flowing. Families and friends are meeting and getting to know one another, and everyone is relaxed and having a great time.

Oh, and there are moose accents. That’s right, I said it. Moose ACCENTS. Because who doesn’t love a cute moose cookie? Honestly… what else would you tie this soiree together with? I almost picked bears because they are also high up on my list, but the moose won.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Wood Grain Spring Wedding Ideas

Hello and HAPPY Wednesday! This week’s inspiration board was inspired by the grain in wood. I envision a magical forest wedding, mid-morning with the sun shining. Fabric bunting in beige and light blue decorates the area. The guests and bridal party dance the evening away in a clear tent with scattered tea candles everywhere.

This is what I had in mind:
