Avalon’s Inspiration Board – Chocolate and White

From Avalon...

We were married on 08.10.07 in Tilden Regional Park in Berkeley, CA and used a dark chocolate, white, and aqua color palette. We let the natural setting around us infuse the wedding with different shades of green. We wanted our wedding to be simple, elegant, and special, which is what led me to choose these nine pictures in particular.

Top Row:

Wedding Invitations by Chewing the Cud

One of my favorite readers, Viola, sent me some photos of the invitations that she recently designed for her wedding. They are so unbelievably great, I just had to share them with you...

The invitations were in one part inspired by To Kill A Mockingbird...the couple's all time favorite story. The second row of photos is a fake book club poster, with "readers questions" on the back. Things like "Who's the spa junkie, Phillip or Viola?" followed by information on nearby...

Wedding favors by Cutie Pie Cookie Co.

I love, love, love the Cutie Pie Cookies that Brooklyn Bride featured the other day!!!

You can customize them however you'd like, starting at $3.25 per cookie. You just provide them with the image and...voila! Instant favors. They will even package them individually, so that you can just adorn them with your own cute label or bow. They are...

ScanCafe

My friend, Damon, recently emailed me to let me know about his awesome new company...ScanCafe.

Here is how it works...you sift thru all of your old photos, negatives, slides, anything really. You package them up in a box then print a UPS label from the ScanCafe site (they pay for it) and drop off the package at the nearest UPS. Once they get it, they upload all of your old photos into your own personal database. From there, you choose the...

Wedding Colors

Most of the questions that I get tend to revolve around color palette dilemmas. While your wedding colors are certainly important…they are by no means the only element that will dictate the feel of your wedding. The length and style of your ceremony, the guest list, the décor, the food you serve, the music you play, the dress code…these are all things that will ultimately create the ambiance of your wedding. The color palette will serve to ENHANCE these otherwise important elements.

Wedding Dress Trends

The Runways, 2007

Trendy. Perhaps the last word on earth you should think about when choosing your wedding dress. Well, sort of. Wedding dresses, in my opinion, should fit the following description…

Something timeless. Something flattering. Something that makes you feel jaw-droppingly beautiful.

And sometimes, that perfect dress just happens to be an “of the moment, oh-so-now” creation. So, let’s take a moment to review the season's biggest wedding dress...

Wedding Photography by Brook Schwab

If you haven't yet seen the work of Brook Schwab...you really need to. Her photographs are incredibly vibrant and stylish, without seeming staged in any way.. .

I devoured Brook's site last night and found so many of her pictures over-the-top inspiring. Even if you aren't in Houston, you can still look to these pictures for ideas on colors, styles, fashions, anything really. It is always good to look for inspiration in...

Inspiration Board Contest II, Day 6

The last day of our Inspiration Board Contest is here! And may I just say...what a lovely job everyone has done. I originally built this site for a few reasons...the first simply being that I wanted to continue to surround myself with all things pretty. The second though, was to help brides (and wedding junkies) see that weddings can be so much more inspired than what you might see in a magazine or on a massive website. The best weddings are those that forgo the "rules" and instead, bring...
