My Wedding Inspiration Board {Black, White + Kelly Green}

Apologizes for the late post! I’m actually in North Carolina preparing for not one but almost a dozen shoots! Get ready for some absolutely fabulous ideas coming soon.

So, when I’m not running Pizzazzerie, I’m planning my WEDDING!  The date has been SET (June 23, 2012) and decisions are being made. A lot of you have asked if I plan to share some of the wedding planning details here! Though some will be kept secret, I do plan to share my vision, inspiration, main ideas!

One thing I find absolutely essential is having a clear vision of the type of event you want to host so when I thought about my own wedding, I knew EXACTLY who to go to for help. My friend Chris of Postcards + Pretties is my idol at creating inspiration boards. She graciously agreed to take my scattered vision for my wedding and turn it into an i-board for me!

VISION: Black and white stripes + Kate Spade meets Kelly Green + Southern Flair + Classic Elegance

I adore the touches of southern elegance and the subtle black and white striped detailing. A lot of people have asked if puppydog Henry will make an appearance at the wedding and sadly no, I think I’ll have a lot of other things to focus on besides my sweet but rowdy puppy. The reception will be held in a historical mansion on the grounds of Cheekwood Botanical Gardens so I look forward to the beautiful and rich kelly green paired with the garden’s natural colors! Excited! 

Thank you Chris for designing such a gorgeous + perfect inspiration board to help me carry out my wedding vision!

  1. oh love it! That parasol is stunning! The bold black stripes will be a great touch to have through out!

    1. Thank you Laurel!!!! I love the parasol too, wonder if I can find one like it? That would certainly be neat! :)

  2. Sooooo… the new puppy will be the ringbearer???? ;)

    1. Hahahaha, if only he’d behave. He’ll be romping with other doggies during the wedding weekend :) We’ll miss him though!

  3. I can’t wait to see how you take this color scheme and overall vibe and execute it! It’s gonna be preppy, Southern, and fab!

  4. Sarah/ Dreamers Joy Events & Design says:

    That’s gonna be one gorgeous wedding! I love the green and black & white color scheme! :)

  5. Wow Courtney!! This is Beautiful!! Love that parasol also!! Think I could get away with just walking around Murfreesboro with one of those…lol…yeah probably not! I love the black and white stripes on the favor boxes and on the flowers. It’s going to be a perfect color palette for Cheekwood also! Can’t wait to see more.

  6. You’re going to be such a lovely bride + your wedding is going to be gorgeous. Love this unique color palette + the overall style!! Not something you see every day. Great board.

    xoxo, Chrissy
    The Perfect Palette

  7. I had a black and white wedding too and I just love the classic traditional feel, I opted to use silver and I am just drooling over your choice of green!!! I am so dang happy for you Miss Courtney, as we all know, you will be the most beautiful bride and I can only imagine the endless cheek-to-cheek smiles you will bless your guests with. Much love and happiness Courtney!

  8. I love this Courtney! Great job Chris! The green will be just beautiful at that location too… Can’t wait to see how it all turns out!

  9. I love Chris’ inspiration boards and this one is gorgeous. The parasol is just perfect. Loving this color combo

  10. I love the inspiration board. I just did a wedding a month ago that was black, white, and green. We did granny smith apples and french inspired black & white striped ribbon all over. You cannot go wrong with those colors!

  11. Gorgeous! So classy and filled with pizzazz! :) Chris is the Goddess of Board isn’t she?! Consider doing some pre-photos with your pup. He will be older and less crazy by then. Trust me in several years when he is gone, you will be SO glad you have those!

  12. WOW the ideas from this board really get your juices flowing. How excited you must be Courtney. I absolutely love the color scheme!
