Pink, Gold, and Gorgeous


Today’s inspiration board was designed for another real bride–again, it’s one of my favorite parts of being a wedding blogger! I went to high school with this bride, and since she has always had such amazing style, I wasn’t surprised at all that her wedding plans sound gorgeous! She and her military fiance are throwing a pink and champagne colored wedding at a gorgeous Virginia venue overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. Her plans are full of sentimental details and ways to give back–she’s even planning to donate her gown to Brides Against Breast Cancer after the big day! Here’s what I put together based on her ideas.

Blush mismatched bridesmaids, a few gold details, whimsical cupcakes, and a luscious bouquet–gorgeous, isn’t it? I also couldn’t resist including this crown-topped cake since the bride was a Zeta! It’s the little things, right? :)

Love, Lisa
