Inspiration Board: Chocolate Twist

It's still Spring and in no way am I attempting to hasten the year, but our upcoming holiday season is going to be filled with weddings! I'm working with a couple planning an early November wedding who've chosen to design their event from the foundation of "chocolate" (one of the most elegant staples of wedding color palettes). To complement the deep browns and golds of their color scheme, the bride and groom may elect to infuse Burnt Sienna and perhaps a hint of Merlot. Here's my first inspiration board for this couple's nuptials.

(NOTE: The photos from LaCour Photography happen to be from a wedding I am very familiar with. The bride and I were among a small group of women who planned their weddings together, on the Internet, nearly corresponding each and every day. And her special day was SPECTACULAR! Even 5 years later, we still keep in close contact. One of our nearest and dearest celebrated a baby shower just yesterday, which we attended and enjoyed wishing her all the best with her baby-boy-due-in-June.)
