Going Back Home - Korcula Inspired Wedding

I went back home for three weeks in July. It felt amazing. It always feels good to be home, to be surrounded by lifelong friends and family members. It is such a wonderful feeling running into someone you are related to on the street; I don't get to experience that in Canada.

The island of Korcula is a magical place. White stone houses, red rooftops, cobble streets, and aqua blue seas. I always dreamed of getting married here. Everyone has their own place under the sun and this is mine. Below are a couple pictures from the island and some ideas on how to incorporate colors/textures that Korcula inspires in my imagination in your wedding decor (white, light blue/aqua, pinks, corals).
