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!

Runners up: We'd

like to offer runners-up free custom design services in addition to the 25% off

we are offering to all entrants!
