Rustic Elegance

Do you use pinterest?  It can be a wonderful tool.  We love to curate inspiration/mood boards for weddings and personal styling projects.  Pinterest can provide inspiration and help you narrow down the overall style and feel you want for your event.  The key is to not look at the images in a literal sense (you can’t duplicate everything), but rather, to take the inspiration and create your own unique event.  If you are using a wedding planner or wedding stylist, a pinterest board can give them a good idea of the style and feeling you are drawn to visually.  One of the best ways to curate a pinterest board for your wedding is to pin things that mean something, make you feel something, or that inspires you.  Then once you have pinned what seems to be a mountain of images go back and fine tune your board, eliminating the items to create a highly curated board that represents the feeling for your wedding.

Blue Mountain Lavender Farm

Today we ventured over to Blue Mountain Lavender Farm in Lowden, Wa.  They have a lovely little farm minutes from Walla Walla, Wa and Milton-Freewater, Or.  They have a lovely little shop full of handmade lavender goods, honey, and the base for their refreshing lavender lemonade.  We were able to take a look at some of the lavender we will be using for an upcoming Wedding in July.  I am excited to see the lavender bouquets against the soft grey bridesmaid gowns.  Blue Mountain Lavender Farm offers U-pick options and/or Pre-Cut options for fresh flowers, weddings and events.  Lavender is perfect for the DIY bride looking for a fragrant flower with a country/wildflower feel.
