Inspiration Board: Berry Farm Wedding

I'm sharing my latest inspiration board today, which I  recently guest posted for my friend Melissa of The Loveliest Day. I adore the idea of a summer wedding around a berry theme, and seeing how we are in blackberry season here in Oregon, I felt super inspired to do a blackberry farm inspired board for a wedding. Berries not only provide great desserts for weddings, but also are amazing for color palette and floral inspiration. For a berry inspired wedding, these mason jar printables from Paper Crave via Cottage Industrialist are simply divine (these would also be great for barbeques, kitchen showers, baby showers, etc!) I love the idea of using unripe raspberries as boutonnieres, in bouquets and centerpieces. Use fresh berries in signature drinks like blackberry gin fizz or berry lemonade, in cardboard berry baskets as favors, in desserts like mini chocolate blackberry cupcakes, berry pies or for decorating cakes. A rustic farm setting at sunset makes for a perfect venue for this berry fete.

I am barely breaching the banks (holy alliteration, Batman...) of wedding planning, but I seriously cannot wait to incorporate all the inspiration that's coming from you!
