A Rain Washed Garden Wedding to Kick Off Spring

I’ve been so thrilled that California’s rainy winter has stretched into a rainy spring – it makes my rain washed garden inspiration perfectly of-the-moment! The gray skies and misty days called to mind the soft green and blue shades of this ethereal inspiration for a rainy day wedding!

A Rain Washed Garden Wedding in Pale Blue and Green to Kick Off Spring!

It’s not the first time that I’ve been inspired by rain – I’ve always found something about it to be incredibly romantic! That may come from growing up in California in the middle of a drought – I still get incredibly excited on rainy days. I wanted to capture that atmospheric beauty in today’s board. Overcast skies and gray clouds give everything a muted, dusky hue, which I wanted to incorporate with a palette of pale blue and fresh green. Natural details abound – blooming spring flowers in loose arrangements create the feeling of a garden, bursting with new growth for spring. Raw, organic textures from natural wood and overgrown ferns give it an elemental, earthy quality, while silk chiffon and floating ribbons capture the ethereal beauty of spring.
