Dusty and rustic, that sounds like quite the combination, doesn’t it? But I promise it was gorgeous – just like dear Hallie. Hallie and I schemed about all things vintage, wooden and full of charm. She adored dusty blue tones and luscious pops of pink. We aimed for softness, without being too pastel. She loves bows, lace and lots of girly enchantments which contrasted nicely with the rustic vibe of her barn venue.
Before bringing the day to life, we of course plotted and schemed and dreamt up an amazing mood board to help us define exact what their celebration would look like. I know some people find it somewhat pointless, but to me I think it’s an invaluable tool. Hallie (like most brides) had 169 pins on her Pinterest board and while they were all beautiful, there was such a range and plethora of ideas that it really needed to be focused and narrowed. You can read more about why I insist on creating an inspiration board here.
We sought to combine her favorite things, making sure that the design remained balanced between glamorous and aged elements, old and new and fit perfectly with her something blue.
