You can tell I’m in the wedding home stretch, the last few posts have featured other peoples photos! I feel bad about that, but I have so much work to do, no time for adventures & photos!! I’m just trying to gather all my final prep for the wedding, and gathering last minute inspiration around the web.
Sometimes, though, I get so bogged down visually – this morning I fell down a rabbit hole looking at this tumblr – SO MANY PARTIES. So many of the same, same, same thing. So pretty, but – !!! Really? It’s like one giant never ending wedding. Which actually would be amazing, but I digress.
My original inspiration for the wedding came from the Tasha Tudor book “A Time to Keep.” I have to keep checking back in with it before I get swept up in a tide of mason jars and calico bunting. I need to stop thinking so much about detail and work on the wedding the way I work on ALL my art – in a state of meditation, not thinking too much but trusting instinct and reaching for the threads that call to me.
I want to watch Hook because I keep thinking about the Lost Boys.
Not really traditional wedding inspiration, but I think it’s so, so much better for me to get inspiration from random sources – looking at weddings nonstop makes it difficult to discern what truly resonates and reflects us as a couple, vs. “ooh! shiny! pretty! want!” which is basically what my brain melts down to after about 5 posts of weddings.
& I’ve been returning back to some of my own work for inspiration – this nest was big enough for 2 people and suspended in the corner of a gallery –
How about everyone else out there? Do you have an inspiration process? Do you prefer abstract or literal inspiration?
