Today I have a unique post and treat for you (and me too).  I’ve joined with some other bloggers from across the globe to participate in ‘Blog Around the World’ – each of us has a different photo from the same shoot and we’re each posting our own blog post inspired by that photo.  It is such a cool idea and I can’t wait to see what each blogger, who I admire and am constantly inspired by, comes up with!  Be sure to check out all of the posts, which are listed below.

This is the photo that I was given:

I decided to build an inspiration board around this photo, showing my interpretation of a vintage safari wedding.  Before I share it, here is a little bit from the organizer, Alicia.  
Hello Lovelies! I am Alicia from The Charity Wedding and I am excited to present another round of Blog Around the World with some of my favorite wedding bloggers! I recently helped organize a styled shoot using the theme of a Vintage Desert Safari. Each blogger will be showcasing a photo from the shoot and sharing some tips, advice, or just some pretty-eye candy for you to enjoy. Be sure to visit all the blogs to make sure you catch all the goodness. Thanks so much to all of the participants!
