Inspiration: Shabby Chic in Bloom

19 Oct

This is the very first style board I ever created. It was for my own wedding in Cleveland, OH. We got married on July 3rd, 2010 at The Club at Hillbrook, a beautiful old estate in the quaint suburb of Chagrin Falls. The stone mansion and beautiful grounds was the perfect setting for our ceremony and reception. We got married in an outdoor ceremony and had the reception on a covered terrace attached to the house. It was absolutely perfect. Our colors were gray, white and chartreuse green. Lace was a big part of the feminine details. We got married under a lace chuppa which our florist made from a tablecloth I ordered from England off e-bay! I collected white milk glass vases that the florist filled with pretty buds and placed all around the reception. Our centerpieces were white tulips, which I absolutely love. The girls were in light gray chiffon dresses of different style and carried simple bouquets of white stock (a very cost-effective but pretty flower). The boys were in light gray suits and black ties. Everything came together so nicely because I had a cohesive vision for what I wanted to achieve. Stay tuned for pictures from the actual wedding and you can see how a style board can really help bring a vision to life.
