Desert Safari Wedding Inspiration {Blog Around the World} #14

Today is a special day in the wedding blogging community - Alicia from The Charity Wedding recently helped organize a styled shoot using the theme of a Vintage Desert Safari and I was so lucky to be given the opportunity to design all the paper goods. All the photos from the shoot you will see throughout the day are by Fancy Fin Photography. Throughout today, bloggers across the world will be showcasing a photo from the shoot and sharing some tips, advice, or just some pretty-eye candy for us all to enjoy. Please be sure to visit all the blogs to make sure you catch all the goodness.

And, here is my Desert Elegance in Lavender, Green and Tan for you today - I created this inspiration board based on the top left photo from the photo shoot. I loved the bow in the back of the brides dress and her bouquet is just gorgeous with the lavender roses. I immediately wanted to do an inspiration board for an elegant themed wedding in the dessert instead of the typical rustic look that you might think of.
