How to Gather Inspiration for Your Wedding Design

As mentioned in this post, one of the things we love most about wedding and event planning is the design aspect. We love design, and we love creating inspiration boards and mood boards for each design project we direct, whether it’s an inspiration photo shoot, a wedding, or even helping someone with the design of a room in their house.

Coming up with inspiration can be daunting and overwhelming if you don’t have a plan. So today, we’re going to let you peek in on our inspiration process.

The Inspiration Behind Our Moody Ocean-Inspired Styled Shoot

The Inspiration Behind Our Moody Ocean-Inspired Styled Shoot

My love of the ocean is no secret, so when a few amazing local vendors decided they wanted to collaborate on an ocean-inspired shoot, my heart did a few flips. I designed a Mood Board to help capture the feel, look, and mood of the shoot and sent it out to all of the creative partners involved. I'm sharing that Mood Board with you today :)

Bespoken Bride: Meet Kristyn

Bespoken Bride: Meet Kristyn

Kristyn contacted me about planning her wedding a few months ago. Since she lives in Charlotte, we spent some time chatting on the phone about her and Jon, their wedding, and what she is looking for in a wedding planner. They're getting married this winter, and the thought of planning and coordinating a wedding at The Cliffs at Glassy in December sounded like a dream. Kristyn and I had a great conversation, and I've enjoyed helping her with her wedding. I can't wait for their big day; it's going to be beautiful. But for now...I'd like to introduce you to Kristyn :)

You're Not the Author

I posted a quote this morning on Instagram and Facebook, and it's receiving some attention. Since I'm getting a lot of "Thank you so much" messages from this one, I wanted to go ahead and post it here.

"Admit it: your life hasn't worked out according to your plan. Last month didn't work out according to your plan. Today won't work out according to your plan. All of this is true because you aren't the author of your story. You don't need to read a mystery novel; your life is a mystery to you. You and I don't have a clue what is around the next corner, let alone where we will be and what we will be doing a decade from now. But even though there is very little that we know for sure about our lives and we experience constant surprises along the way, we need not give way to panic. Yes, our lives are out of our control, but that doesn't mean they are out of control. No, our lives are under the careful administration of the One who has the wisdom and power to be the great Author of it all." -Paul David Tripp

I love that reminder.
