Green Wedding Inspiration: Romantic, Ethereal, and Timeless

September 30, 2014
Romantic, ethereal, and absolutely timeless... These are just some of the words that come to mind when I see this kind of event styling. Green has long been a favorite color of mine. But when mixed with beautiful details like these? Yeah, my love easily escalates to obsession in about .2 seconds.

I love the simplicity. I am drawn to the romance of it all. I can't get enough of this lush, leafy look that we're seeing here on the invitations as well as on the wedding cake. Soft neutrals make the perfect compliment to these gorgeous shades of green. Wouldn't you agree?

Oh, and I can't go without mentioning this wedding gown by Samuelle Couture. Um, can we all just take a second to swoon? I mean, I don't think I've ever seen a more gorgeous gown shot. I was definitely smitten the second I saw it. Let's just say, I would have totally said yes to that dress. Anyone else?

So tell me... are you drawn to green? And if so do you like the way it works with these simple neutrals? And if so, what ideas would you mix in to make it yours?

Apple Orchard Wedding Inspiration

September 29, 2014
Every single year I find myself falling for apple cider and ale, boots and bonfires, sweaters and scarves, layers and leggings. Not to mention my love for front porch sittin', fall festivals, crockpot cooking, cozy flannels, and the beautiful colors of the changing leaves.

But the one thing I look forward to most has to be our annual apple pickin' trips up in the North Georgia mountains. Because what's not to love? Not only is it the perfect excuse to slip into my favorite pair of tall boots, but it's just the sort of outing that gives you those warm and fuzzies for the season.

You see, weddings really are the perfect time to incorporate some of your favorite seasonal pastimes. And guess what? There really are so many ways to incorporate this theme into your wedding day. Take a peek at these creative ideas! 

From apple cider donuts to a bobbing station, as you can see there really is no shortage of cute ideas. I also am so in love with the idea of an apple picking party! How cute are those kraft envelopes with the red and white gingham liners? And the chalkboard inspired invitations? So super cute with a theme like this. Oh, and I can't go without mentioning those caramel covered apples on little branches by Camille StylesSuch a cute idea and definitely steal-worthy!

As you can see, my obsession with this season is still going strong. Now, excuse me, please, I need to go pour myself a cup of warm apple cider.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star: Blue + Gold Wedding Ideas

September 26, 2014
Say hello to my new favorite color palette. Midnight blue and glittery gold sure do look like they were made for one another. Wouldn't you agree? And with so many gorgeous and elegant ways to bring these colors to life, it's no wonder I had a tough time narrowing down the images I wanted to use for this vision board.

I'm loving all of these star details and those glittery, twinkle lights. I've always been a fan of those. Very whimsical.

Oh, and who isn't loving the idea of using spray painted bottles as vases? Hello inexpensive centerpiece idea! Can you tell that my DIY obsession has been growing leaps and bounds here lately? Yep, I was a DIY bride myself and I couldn't love this creative idea more. So simple. So lovely.

These are the sort of colors that make me want to throw a party! What do you think? First off, would you want to come to a party that looked like this? And secondly, are you liking the way these colors work together? And if so, what kind of ideas would you incorporate to make it yours?

Metallic Fall Tablescape DIY - Easy & Affordable

September 25, 2014
     

Planning a fall wedding or party? Well, then this metallic beauty crafted by The Bride Link and Custom Love Gifts is a total must-see! And lucky for us, JoPhoto was there to capture all of the pretty! 

Lindsay, of Custom Love Gifts, is the queen of DIY design, so Haley of The Bridelink just knew that she wanted to team up with her to create this fall tablescape full of elegant DIY projects. From the Designers, "Our goal was to show how to achieve an elegant tablescape for fall using easy and affordable DIY elements. We wanted to make the gorgeous tablescapes seen on the front of Pottery Barn and Country Living attainable for the everyday person."

Minus the china, flatware, and the lovely floral centerpiece, everything seen on the tablescape was purchased at The Dollar Store or a craft store. A variety of metallic spray paints was the key to turning the once wooden candlesticks and orange pumpkins into an elegant array of Fall decorations. Get ready to be inspired!

More from the Designers, "We purchased the sorbet bowls from the dollar store and finished off the tablescape with a little moss and foliage (easily found from a backyard.) A tiny gold pumpkin sat atop each place setting in a simple glass sorbet cup.

These colors. Can we all just take a look at these magnificent metallics? Here, they used a mix of gold, silver, bronze, and pewter metal finishes and combined them with the prettiest white, ivory and soft cream colors. I mean... can this be any more charming? I think not. So festive, so charming, so absolutely beautiful. Pumpkins were painted in a variety of different metallic shades, while candlesticks of varying heights prove to be both eye catching and elegant.  

The hutch was filled with items for a mini Fall dessert bar, including mini mason jars, homemade apple butter favors dressed in satin and lace, spiced apple cider mini mason jar mugs, and Apple and Cherry pie in a jar favors, all by Custom LOVE Gifts.

And these florals. Whoa. Okay, so this floral design is insanely pretty. Major props to Melissa Timm DesignsI'm blown away by all of the beauty.

You see, stunning decor CAN be created on a budget with a little creativity and lots and lots of metallic spray paint!
