We've been playing around with the idea of eloping... it just seems silly to spend so much money, especially at this point in our lives where we could use it for much greater things (like a house!). Our families have been incredibly supportive... "just do whatever makes us happy." Oh, if it was only that simple! So if we don't elope... we hope to be married on the farm where we rented a little loft in the barn and lived together for eighteen months following graduation, and where Mark proposed. It's an eighteenth century plantation, on the banks of the Potomac River. Absolute perfection. We only moved a few months ago, and it already feels like a dream. This place will always have my heart, and I would love for our families and friends to join us there to celebrate our love. Many (most) of them have never been there, since it's three hours from our hometown.
Here's my current inspiration board... that will likely changed twelve more times before the actual day.

So whatcha think?
Colors -- grayed jade (thank you Pantone!), ivory, and gold. I hope to save some money by doing our own flowers (I may be crazy to attempt this?), and keeping things simple, minimal, but quality. We're trying to keep our guest list to the bare minimum to keep it intimate (and less expensive), and are looking at about 125 at the moment. Not too bad, I think.
I would love to hear any advice! Did you elope? Did you love it, do you regret it?
I've put all these wedding thoughts on the back burner while we've debated on what to do... but I have to admit that making this inspiration board and seeing pictures of the farm in spring (and perhaps the 3 cups of coffee I just drank ;) has me really excited!
Happy Wednesday, friends!
