Classic Red, Ivory, and Sepia

We chatted the other day about wedding philosophies, and one thing that I touched on was that your wedding should stand the test of time.  On that theme, here is a classic red, ivory, and sepia inspiration board for you.  Notice the multiple ways that handwriting in red ink makes an appearance, subtly tying the elements of the board together.  Handwriting is so personal… such a great way to make your wedding your own!

What personal touches are you going to incorporate into your wedding?  How are you going to weave them into your event so they aren’t overpowering, but are merely simple, honest reflections of you?
