Theresa and John’s Connecticut River Museum Wedding

January 18, 2011

Inspiration Board

Location: This board was created for Theresa and John’s Fourth of July wedding at the Connecticut River Museum in Essex. Essex is a quintessential New England town, with the most adorable main street, lined with antique stores, gift shops, restaurants, the Griswold Inn (a historic inn) and one of my favorite wine bars in the state. It is the perfect location for guests to stay, all within walking distance to the venue.

Mood/Details: When I first met with Theresa and John they described the mood as whimsical and fun, with unexpected personalized details, eclectic, and crafty. Theresa is a fashion designer so I knew that we would have a lot of fun in designing their wedding day. I was blown away by the DIY projects that they incorporated to fill the event with the most incredible details.

Colors: The color palette reminded me of the perfect summer day, bright accents of yellow like the sun and varying shades of blue and turquoise like the water. Lots of detail, layers of texture, and vivid pops of color!
