I have been on a crazy hunt for an inspiration board that sums up the wedding I have envisioned inside of my head. It has been very difficult and frustrating for me to put onto paper what I would like my wedding day to be like. Of course I should not complain that not one single person has been as creative as I to put the colors we want for our wedding together – but it has been done. Well, sort of… I found an inspiration board that ALMOST makes me dream real. I found the work of art on coco+kelley, a fun new blog that I discovered today during my lunch break. I likes it a lot. The blog’s creator held an Inspiration Board contest during her Wedding Week and a brilliant chica named Courtney won the prize! Yay Courtney!!!

Aside from the turquoise invitations, the montage of red, starfish, the beach, and one awesome bridesmaid dress that screams “I AM PERFECT FOR Caitlin’s Wedding”… Now, if I can only convince B to love all of the red I am on my way to perfection. We do want to incorporate orange, and a lot of the ‘pastel green,’ so Courtney’s montage is going to be exactly what she created it for – Inspiration. Yay!!! I can’t say, “Yay” enough – or maybe I say it too much.
