Autumn at Longbourn
Though it is the middle of summer, today I'm continuing a series I started a few months ago based on the people and places in Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice".
This board was inspired by Longbourn- the Bennett family home. I see this wedding using the colors and textures of the season and the country local to set a tone that is both traditional and organic. The moss green and brown color of the bridesmaids gowns, added to the russet and bronze tones of the flowers comprise the hues of a farm at harvest time. The glass and silver of the formal table settings for the reception add refined touches. The food would be simple, but rich; much like a traditional harvest feast. This is a cozy home wedding at is most elegant.
