Get Inspired!

2009 Inspiration Boards
Jason and Jackie

How fun are these?! Oh they’re fun! Did they take FOREVER?! YES.  But I loved designing them and piecing together colors and details of each couple’s big day! I wish I could have done ALL of the 2009 weddings but I’m coming to find out that even though there should be more than 24 hours in a day…that’s really not going to happen anytime soon so I have to stop somewhere!


This is what I wanted to do! I love reviewing the year and showing off some awesome shots that I love but I also wanted to show off  my 2009 weddings and allow them to inspire other brides! So I created inspiration boards for a few of the numerous awesome weddings from this year! I’ve realized as a bride-to-be just how important the advice of other brides can be!  My hope is that sometime in the future, the blog with host a Q&A post featuring past Inspired Designs brides that are pros at the whole planning process now!  It’s so helpful when you’re trying to figure out caterers and venues and DJ’s and florists and bridal party attire! Whew! It’s a little OVERWHELMING! (can you tell we’re in the midst of hard core planning right now?!)  But it should be fun and it shouldn’t be something that you dread.  So! Here is some inspiration from my 2009 weddings!  Notice the colors, the details, the dresses, all that fun stuff!


If you’re a bride-to-be and you’re in the middle of the planning whirlwind, take a break and just enjoy looking at some neat ideas and cool color palettes! And maybe an idea or two will catch your attention! Enjoy!


Jason and Jackie were just married December 5th! I think I’m a fan of Christmas weddings!

Jeff and Lauren had a BEAUTIFUL fall wedding in Downtown Fredericksburg this past October!  I love the oranges and reds and yellows!

Up next is Justin and Jess from September! This wedding is a great example of how to handle the rain! You should have an umbrella on hand because they are life savers for portrait time!  Justin and Jess had such a simple and classic color scheme to their wedding party! I loved that the guys didn’t wear jackets!

You can never go wrong with a beach wedding. You’ll always have a theme! I love the soft color palette of Chris and Alayna’s wedding!

Brandon and Chrissy‘s March wedding was full of new ideas! Orange and Olive! Who would have thought? Those two colors looked great together!

You gotta’ love Frank and Charity! Charity did an awesome job coordinating the colors of the wedding with the guy’s uniforms. The venue even matched! Red roof!

    Hi! I just saw your post from the [b] school with this link. Great inspiration boards. I attended architecture school before transitioning to photography and we always did these. Maybe I should learn to incorporate more of what I was trained in into my photography biz. Who would’ve thought?! Beautiful work, by the way, from each of the weddings!
