White Inspiration Board

Hello again. Well it has been some time now.  Besides having some computer problems, my fiancĂ© and I took a trip down to South Carolina to visit his family for Easter. We had a great time with everyone and especially enjoyed the warm weather. Our visit was long overdue since our plans to go down for Christmas didn’t quite work out due to the many snow storms in NY. One topic which was discussed often was our upcoming wedding. Speaking of weddings, an all white wedding is classy, modern and timeless. Also, you can easily incorporate hints of color for a little pop here and there. Take a look at this beautiful inspiration board.
