Now Trending: Navy Blue and Pink

March 31, 2014
So today I thought it would be fun to revisit a color palette that has always been near and dear to my heart! I don't know what it is, but I've always been drawn to the way that navy blue looks with shades of pink. Today, I've paired navy with the prettiest shades of pink I could find. Patterns have always been such a great way to add visual interest. And with this round up of stripes and polka dots, I'm feeling all kinds of inspired.

I love the idea of dressing your bridesmaids in navy blue dresses like these and then accessorizing with pretty pops of pink. And I don't know about you, but this beautiful wedding invitation had me at hello. Rounding out this look, I made sure not to forget to include a pretty cake. Wait, okay, scratch that... this cake is worthy of being called gorgeous! And those bouquets? Ahhh! So pretty if you ask me. So what do you think? Are you liking the way that these colors play off one another?

Macy's | Registry Must-Haves!

March 27, 2014
So today I'm excited to bring you my seventh installment in the series I've been putting together in partnership with our friends over at Macy's! As you might remember, I've been asked to put together a list of my personal recommendations and registry must-haves! And of course I couldn't wait to start sharing!

Now, as a reminder, these recommendations will be items that were on our actual registry or they're things I wish we would have included. So without further ado, here's the next of my favorites!

Fancy flutes. Need I say more? I'm especially loving this pretty lavender set by Vera Wang! Marrying a classic pattern and beautiful lavender hue, these limited-edition Duchesse Encore crystal flutes toast the 20th anniversary of Vera Wang in luxe, modern style.



Because what's not to love? I love that this Vera Wang Wedgwood set is also a part of a collection that includes gorgeous crystal vases and bowls. Such a stunning collection perfect for pulling out for all of those celebratory moments you'll have together!

Crystal never looked so beautiful. Am I right? Want to know how you can let your wedding guests know that these flutes are on your wishlist? Well, lucky for you, you can easily add these to your Macy's Registry! Don't have a registry with Macy's yet? No worries. Registering is easy! Simply follow {this link} and you're good to go!

Jessica and Joey - Colorful, Heartfelt, and Handmade

March 26, 2014
      

Jessica and Joey’s outdoor wedding at the Smith Barn has me feeling totally inspired in the best way possible! Captured by the talented Dream Love Photography, just one look and I knew that this was a wedding that I had to share! From the vintage velour furniture on the lawn to the gorgeous and colorful bouquets, there was something pretty around every corner.

Decorated with twinkling lights and colorful pendants, the Smith Barn proved to be the perfect place to celebrate! Colorful, heartfelt, and oh-so pretty, I'm loving all of the handmade elements that were incorporated into this impossibly pretty wedding. For instance, instead of a traditional wedding cake, these two decided on a decadent dessert table full of different sweets and baked goods. The guests could hardly keep from sampling the table before it had been announced!

From the bride:

The best thing about our wedding day was absolutely everything. Every person was so full of love; it was palpable. I especially loved seeing guests’ reactions to our old family pictures on the gift table. It was the most intimate feeling seeing all our family and friends mixed up in pictures of each other. Advice I’d give to a bride planning this kind of wedding is to think of the wedding as an extension of your personality. It’s not a wedding - it’s YOUR wedding. Instead of deciding on a color scheme, incorporate all colors and patterns that “speak” to you. When everything comes together, you’re guests will feel “you.” The most important goal for us was that everyone felt love and had fun. If you’re asking yourself “do I need to spend a lot of money on this?” decide if it will benefit the group as a whole. No one will notice that you spent $400 on your shoes, but lawn games and a killer DJ will keep people smiling and busy all night.
