Summer Scents: Lavender Inspired Wedding Details

I was fortunate to spend this past weekend soaking up the sun in Napa Valley to attend my good friend's wedding. While driving around the valley, the sweet smell of summer filled the air - and with it the smells of summer lavender. This little purple plant makes me so happy. It adds a softness to any landscape as an amazing smell to any room. J and I just finished planting different types of lavender in our backyard. I especially love the huge blooms of Spanish Lavender.

The color adds an elegant simplicity to any wedding. Lavender is known for it's calming ways, and used as decor, whether the color or the flower, adds a feeling of an outdoor evening wedding on a warm summer night, crickets humming in the background and a soft peach glow in the sky as the sun sets.
