r + l . wedding inspiration

I’m really excited to share this inspiration board for our wedding! We don’t want to have a theme but we’re drawn to the deep plums and grey neutrals in these images. (And by we, I mean I love them and Ryan just agrees.) While we originally planned on having our wedding at a local museum, we had cold feet about having a party in an unconventional location. The thought of having to coordinate everything the day of the wedding stressed us both out. We thought it would be easier to host the party in a venue that includes tables, chairs, china, etc., instead of having to rent and deliver everything seperately.

After some more research by my amazing sister and “wedding planner”, we found a beautiful location to get married! (We will not change our minds again, promise.) Ryan and I will be exchanging our vows outdoors with a backdrop of exotic plants and trickling modern waterfalls on our 11th anniversary, April 23, 2011.

Today I made eggplant parmesan for the first time. I’m still collecting family recipes and trying new things out in the kitchen. This collection of photos are inspired by my favorite color, and new favorite dinner. :) They leave me with the same happy feeling of pasta, merlot… and Ryan doing the dishes.
