A friend is getting married on the beach in North Carolina, (soon!) and had lots of ideas. When I was in a similar situation it helped me to make an inspiration board, and so I made some for her as well.
The bride has a beautiful beach-front location for her ceremony, and a reception on the pier (pictured below). She has a stunning gown, and her bridesmaids will wear teal dresses, her groom and groomsmen will wear black suits.
She knew that she wanted a wedding that was fun, romantic, and reflective of who they are as a couple and the location of the wedding.
Here is what I designed:

A wedding with a theme is a funny thing. If you’ve ever seen an episode of “My Fair Wedding with David Tutera” you know what I mean; nearly any theme can be executed, how well it is done is in the details. And, I love working on the details.
If you, or a friend, or a friend of a friend is getting married or throwing any type of event and needs help turning their ideas into inspiration, let me know!
