it’s such a pressure these days [especially with pinterest] to create a wedding event that’s aesthetically pleasing, fun, and original. it’s easy to reuse ideas found online, but everyone always wants something just a little different to set themselves apart. we’ll save that topic for another day, but for today here’s an example of how i drew wedding inspiration from a piece of artwork. it’s really not hard to come up with some great ideas by using something not wedding-related as your inspiration. this painting by Kathryn Markel [below] inspired me to create this boho / modern wedding inspiration board today.

sharing 4 of my favorites on this monday!
i was so inspired seeing this illustrator collaboration from paper fasion in genlux magazine. you can check out the rest of the series on their blog – it’s fantastic! these cupcakes from happy living are so pretty and perfect. i love this post + instagram by whitney english of how the struggle is part of the story and i’m also obsessed with this boxed set of oscar wilde note cards.
navy blue and white stripes will always be one of my favorite patterns – simple + classy. you can dress it up and dress it down. it looks good in your house, good on paper…you can’t go wrong! this inspiration board has some of my faves right now:
 this striped day dress from anthropologie comes in 2 other colors!
 west elm’s chef’s stripe cotton laundry bags are perfect for traveling
 i’m obsessed with these nautical notebook by pei design
 the hamilton striped canvas tote is one of the only handbags i’m liking from michael kors this season
 for the fellas that like skinny ties, this textured ribbon stripe shirting necktie from general knot & co. could be just the addition to your spring/summer wardrobe
i love the idea of bringing out the natural greens in a wedding. if you want a really clean wedding, i’m an advocate of lots of white, and accents of green + natural kraft tones. whether you’re getting married in a greenhouse, plantation or at a country club there are so many ways to focus in on the green details besides the grass.
i pulled together this inspiration board for those of you that want a fresh look for your wedding. if perhaps you also love the outdoors or enjoy working with that green thumb of yours, this is a perfect way to go!
