And now for the winners, from Hello! Lucky..

First Place Winner: Joanna – Rustic garden casual theme inspired by the nature of the
Chesapeake Bay:

My ideal wedding style is rustic garden casual. We are getting
married a year from June at an Inn outside of St. Michaels, MD, which
overlooks the water. The Inn dates back to the 17th century and has
been renovated, but still reflects the colonial style of this historic
fishing town. The barn on the site has yet to be renovated and the
fading red paint on grey, old barn wood is a perfect place for

The Inn itself is pale yellow, so it’s guiding our color choices.
Our other color inspirations are blue as in the Chesapeake Bay and our
treasured blue crabs and green for nature. Right now we’re leaning
towards mostly ivory with pale green, yellow and blue accent colors.

I’m a “green-collar” worker, so I’m excited to incorporate as many
environmentally friendly options into the wedding as possible. Natural
elements also work well with the wedding colors. I want to highlight
the Chesapeake Bay through its stunning nature – birds, flowers and
other wildlife. Also, since most of our guests will be coming from out
of town, we want to make them feel at home and let them know about all
of the fun things to do in the area, like shopping for antiques,
crabbing, bike rides, and the Maritime Museum. My fiancé and I are
still in the inspiration stages now, but I’m excited to pull together
our dream wedding.

love the image the 17th century yellow inn and old red barn, and the idea of
incorporating design elements inspired by the flora and fauna of the Chesapeake
Bay. We also love Lynn’s vision of having a green wedding and would love to
incorporate natural and recycled materials into the design!
