Literary Inspiration

Calling all bookworms, March is National Reading Month! To celebrate we have gathered book and literature-inspired images to help start taking your ideas from the page to reality! From Shakespeare to Great Gatsby your favorite book can be a great place of inspiration. So if you're a bookworm like us, we know that you will love the idea of adding literary charm to your wedding day celebrations. 


The Ocean Blue: Literary Color Inspiration Board

We just finished reading this elegantly rendered and heart-wrenching story. Now that we have finally stopped crying, we are inspired by the romance that takes place in an equally beautiful and desolate location.

The color palette of the ocean is understated and elegant, a great design approach for a wedding. Finding the balance between the harsh and soft, the masculine and feminine, is how to successfully design an elegant affair.

So we hope you are inspired by this new twist on nautical!

 


The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
