I am happy to unveil the winning Inspiration Board from our contest sponsored by our partners at Diamond Rental! We really loved the simple elegance of the fresh green and earth toned color palette. Excellent job Haley! Here's a little bit about her inspiration:
"For years now, I have dreamed of having my wedding in my parent’s yard. It is one of the most beautiful places I know - complete with an iron gazebo with swings overlooking a pond that has three small waterfalls. Its meandering stone pathways that lead to open expanses of green grass and unique variety of trees make it a magical place! The colors I have chosen are green, dark brown and ivory. When I told my mom what my colors were and that I wanted to have my reception outside, she said, 'Great! We have green grass and green trees and lots of chocolate brown dirt in the flower beds!' I am happy that my colors will be an extension of the beauty of the yard. My plan is to dress my eight bridesmaids in chocolate brown and my maid of honor in green. My own gown is ivory and in it, I turn into a princess! I want the reception to be simple, yet elegant and I want my guests to feel as if they can linger and chat and enjoy each other and the yard. I plan on using ivory linens with green table toppers and beautiful glass hurricane lamps with candles on each table. Since my reception will be on a summer evening, my dream is to serve gelato in sugar cones and have guests hold sparklers over the heads of my husband and I on our send-off. I want a simple three-tiered cake with chocolate brown ribbon on each tier and a flower girl dressed in ivory waking around handing out wrapped candies to guests. I have decided to only serve desserts at my reception - along with the gelato, I want to serve small finger desserts and fruit - my only criteria is that they be beautiful and delicious! I can hardly wait to marry my best friend and love of my life and I look forward to a beautiful dream-come-true reception in my own back yard!"
Thank you so much Haley and congratulations! We are so happy for you and your husband-to-be!
