There is a dreamy aesthetic to the end of summer. September 23 marks the official day that summer turns into fall, but the transition is felt long before then. The sky turns golden in the afternoons and the pace slows, one last time, before everyone is back into everyday life mode.
Yes, the end of summer is like a deep sigh, a Sunday. It beckons us to gather with friends in our own backyards, to drink good wine, to gather the flowers before they're gone.
This mood, this hazy, dreamy, hopeful endless summer mood is what's inspiring our inspiration board today. Use it to fuel your own summer wedding dreams and get togethers.
