i know a gal. and she's one of the best.

if you can believe it…i can be pre-tty…oh, what's the word? bitchy. yes, that's it. bitchy.

only sometimes.

but this gal, she just knows exactly how to put me right back in my place.

and that my friends…that's special.

i certainly don't think it's "special" at that particular moment.

more so like i want shoot her a dirty look and play a quick game of passive-aggressive.

i'm a real sweetheart.

i digress…she's one of the best. she's also getting married this summer.

there have been all sorts of ideas tossed around. two venue changes. multiple color pallets. a wedding dress here…a wedding dress there.

i thought i'd snazzy up a board for my gal in hopes of creating a clearer picture of what she wants for her (and his) big day.

true to form…she's not in love with the board. there are some images that need to be adjusted to represent an evening summer cocktail party. don't worry gal. i'll get it done for you!

but how could i not post this board? i think it's lovely.

mood | late summer, simplistic preppy

colors | ivory, greens, navy, natural wood + golden lighting

row 1 | dress // envelope // whiskey // tie
row 2 | wine // artichokes // cork // chair
row 3 | j.crew // berryhill // cake // boutonnieres
row 4 | suit (that's jake gyllenhaal, i just cropped his face off. swoon.)

as always…i'm taking requests!

are you planning a party? a wedding? a shower?

i'd just love to toss around ideas with you to create your own custom board to help you pull off a beautiful celebration!
