fall inspiration.

I had a lunch meeting today with the fabulous Rachel from Apple Brides.  We discussed the upcoming inspirational photo shoot she asked me to style, and I am so excited about all of the ideas swarming around in my head.

Since she first asked me about a week ago, I haven't been able to stop thinking about a fall-inspired shoot.  As many of you may already know, I'm prematurely ecstatic for fall.  These are the things I think of most when I think of fall that I plan to work into the shoot...

1.) Rich, classic, solid, yummy clothing.

2.) Back to school - which means books and desks.  And apples for teachers.

3.) Rich and deep colors - I plan to go with a plum, lavender, mauve-ish and pumpkin, burnt, rust-ish orange palette.

4.) Football.

I told Rachel I don't think I can work the football fetish in - and to not worry that I might try!

I put together a mood board for her in an effort to capture the vision I have in my mind, so we can share with the various vendors that get involved to give them an idea of the overall look we're going for.

Middle row: flowers | suitcases | flowers
Bottom row: umbrella bride | apples | books 

What do you think, friends?  

Wanna jump on the prematurely-ecstatic-for-fall bandwagon with me?  

There is plenty of room for you.



  1. Okay, I am not ready for summer to be over (because we hardly had one here in Oregon), BUT you just made me crave fall in a big way. I think you should incorporate pumpkin spice lattes...just saying. Can't wait to see the finished product! :)

  2. Love the candle surrounded by cinnamon sticks. I can smell fall already! The soft, fall tones are really nice and soothing as well to match the cinnamon smell. Can't wait to see the final product!

  3. oh my I ltoo love the candle surrounded by cinnamon sticks.. i can only imagine how that would fill up a room!
