lindsay and jp inspiration to reality, part 1

every wedding that i design begins with some sort of inspiration. sometimes it is a texture, an image, or a color, while other times inspiration might come from a specific mood, magazine clipping or even something random from someone's house.

this inspiration board below is what i used to design a wedding for lindsay and jp.

lindsey and jp wanted a fun wedding that was bright and cheerful and had the ambience of a relaxed, care free evening. they also wanted it to be thoughtfully put together, being very intentional about every detail.

this story board was the perfect answer as we looked for inspiration. the colors were happy and bright yet still distinctive and unique for a wedding.  we loved the pattern and coloring of the blue tile contrasted with the spiky yellow flower, the fun mood set with the couple having a great time in the car, and even the tone set by the image of the girl in the turquoise tights.  i was especially drawn to the bold yellow block of color that served as a background to the words in that image.

the next couple of blog entries will show how we took the inspiration set by these images and the playful tone that was conveyed and turned  it into reality for the actual wedding.
