#Inspiration: Ceremony Aesthetics

Though I absolutely love writing, I know my last few posts have been very word-heavy. So! To move into a more eye-pleasing post, let’s go to another #Inspiration board, eh?

Today’s topic is on our ceremony decor and ritual. I have been going back and forth on ideas for decor at the ceremony, which is in our church, and finally made a decision on what I want to do.

While talking with Lia, I realized there was a lot more I needed to decide than “lots of greenery with some pops of pink peonies.” She was spouting out floral names left and right, and I probably was looking at her as if I had never heard English before. I have a lot of studying to do before the wedding, but the images below are an overview of our most basic ideas when it comes to our floral centerpieces.
