May Bride


My sister and I had a book of celebrations from around the world when we were little, and one of our personal favorites was May Day. Both of us grew up never losing that special affinity for ribbons and spring flowers, so I couldn’t resist putting together this inspiration board for her today! I think the result is modern English countryside feel with lots of muted pastels and a little bit of whimsy, and I would love to see it come to life in a real May wedding.

What do y’all have planned for this month? I’m finishing up school this week, going to Syracuse for a long weekend, and graduating on the 17th!

Love, Lisa
