Inspiration to Actuality

Posted by on Jul 1, 2010 in Decor & Details | 5 Comments

After posting on our “Inspiration to Reality” shoot for Style Me Pretty, it got me thinking about examples of Inspiration to ACTUALITY.  Working with clients on design for their weddings, a lot of the time we are interpreting things that they tell us and say vs. the things that we can see that they, the client, really likes.

For our client Sara, we met multiple times for fittings and tastings and design consultations and every time Sara would be wearing pink.  Though she was certain that she wanted no part of pink for her wedding, I made her an inspiration board of images she had liked and the three of us agreed, YES, this was her style.

Here is her inspiration board:


And here is just a glimpse of the “Reality” of the wedding itself as shot by Karen Wise.  It’s just a glimpse into this wedding that I’m sure I’ll share soon, but it’s a great example of how making an inspiration board can really help you fine tune what it is that you like and give you an awesome road map for your event designer (or yourself) to create your dream day.

    I have to share those bouquets with my friend. She is doing pink accents with navy and those would just be AMAZING. Thanks for sharing. I know she will be inspired by them. Can’t wait to see more of the “reality” of the wedding.

    I love the glass chairs, quite glamorous actually,looks like something out of a magazine. The decor and table settings are quite fabulous. The candles truly complement the elegance of the whole wedding event.
