Wedding Inspiration Board: A French Orchard

Wedding inspiration boards are so much fun to create. In a previous post, I mentioned a contest at Style Me Pretty where I made a board for an imaginary wedding. I enjoyed doing it so much that I tried several more.

The painting “Orchard With Blossoming Apricot Trees” by Vincent Van Gogh became the inspiration for this wedding board. I love the colors he used, especially the white and pale pink blossoms and the blue touches in the tree bark.

I picture a romantic French orchard wedding with blossom-filled trees, white linen tables with paint brushes in jars as centerpieces. An artist could be hired to set up his easel and paint the bride and groom during the whole proceedings. To keep things from being too “saccharine sweet”, I would have the groom wear a swanky velvet jacket unbuttoned. The bride would wear blue, open-toed shoes to show off bright pink toenails!

  1. Martha! It’s stunning! I love how absolutely artistic your boards are. And you know how much I love white elements (have I told you my apartment is almost entirely white?). Just gorgeous!
