How I Stay Inspired During Wedding Season

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant:
if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."

― Anne Bradstreet

I don't know about you, but I find my deepest creative inspiration in my natural surroundings. Long after a hike, I take the sights, smells and sounds with me! 

As we begin a very busy season, I wanted to build time into my schedule to find creative inspiration to fuel me to do my best work for our dear clients. So, this past week, I grabbed my garden shears, a tote, and the pup, and went on a walk.

While walking, I collected greenery that caught my attention. When I arrived home, I sorted and styled these pieces to study texture, color, lines, styling, and composition. I had so much fun and feel ready for "go time!" 

While on my walk, I noticed how small and delicate the buds and leaves looked. What looked like vines would soon be strong branches, ready for any weather. After a hard winter, I love this season of fragile tenacity and look forward to personal growth during the busy months ahead. What do you do when you need to feel refreshed and inspired?
