Today’s rustic elegant wine country wedding inspiration starts like any other of my inspiration boards – pretty, disparate ideas that add up to a much larger story – except that I got the chance to see this one come to life! Today’s Sonoma-inspired palette of aqua and copper with loose, organic florals took the leap from inspiration to reality last year at Oh So Inspired.
I never actually expected to win a seat at the incredible creative workshop for wedding professionals, Oh So Inspired, but all of my inspiration styling experience paid off when Honeybook held a contest for the Inspiration to Reality challenge. The design had to create a compelling wine country wedding look while incorporating Honeybook’s signature aqua shade. I wanted my design to reflect the unique combination of rustic and upscale that signifies the Sonoma wine country – unstructured, organic florals in natural shades of green and cream helped bring that vision to life, while hints of teal and aqua added modern color while metallic copper accents added elegance.
I could not have been more excited to have been chosen to attend Oh So Inspired, headed by Bay Area Wedding greats, Nancy Liu Chin Designs, Very Mary Inspired, and A Savvy Event, and attended by some of the most influential movers and shakers in the wedding world. Even better, I had the chance to see one of my inspiration board concepts come to life, through the Inspiration to Design Challenge that tested attendees creativity and wedding savvy.
