A girl can dream, can’t she?

I literally choked on my morning coffee when I saw these images shot by Jennifer Skog Photography. Uh…Now that I’ve nearly died, I’ll go ahead and stop for a moment while I catch my breath and recover from sensory overload.

*sigh*

Moving on. These images are from two separate events, neither of which were real weddings, but a girl can’t help dreaming, can she? Click on the links below for design credits. Photography by Jennifer Skog.

Aubergine & Aqua

You may disagree with what I’m calling these colors, but I’m sure you’ll agree that this color palette is BEAUTIFUL! I love when pairs of color really pop together. And the touch of gold in this palette softens the whole thing out.

Favorite find? The paper butterflies from Bella Celestina. For $1.25, you get 60 of them. HELLO! Can you even deal with that kind of greatness? Can’t you see these as escort cards? Or perhaps strung together on fishing line and hung from above? It’s too much. I can’t handle it. Now don’t get me started on the cake! Will someone PLEASE use this color scheme for a wedding or a shower? I’d die!

Day After Session: Doug and Christine

I ran across Tim Halberg’s photography the other day and couldn’t leave his blog. After finally ripping myself away, I emailed Tim to see if I could feature this newly popular “Day After” session he recently shot in Lake Tahoe. Not only are Doug and Christine absolutely gorgeous, but they infused so much personality into the session, that I just couldn’t resist sharing them with you.

I like to give a special thanks to Tim for sharing the photos. Also, check out some of Doug’s equally fabulous work here. The first shots are from the day after session, but I’ve included a few sneak peeks from their wedding. I made Tim promise me he’d send over the images from the rest of their wedding as soon as he has them up. I can’t WAIT to see the rest.

We’re Expecting!

Dear faithful {grey} readers! Guess what? We are giddy with excitement and more than pleased to announce that {grey} likesweddings is expecting! (No…I’m NOT pregnant!) BUT, a new project is on the horizon with a world of exciting ideas and inspiration, so while it isn’t a real baby per se (sorry to disappoint you!) the project is most certainly newborn. Give us just a little more time…we’ll be ready for the unveiling very soon. Until then, you ought to consider picking up one of these darling little cocoon sets for the baby in your life!

And the winner is….

I assure you our winners are chosen randomly…my roommate had the privilege of picking a number this morning, and she was thrilled to do so. (She says she accepts all bribes).

Bridal Shoot: Jeanette

Just spied this bridal shoot from Anna Page Photography. I think it is so romantic with a little vintage twist to it. These shots are just another reason a bridal shoot can be so fabulous.

Art with Heart

I LOVE this poster from Bread and Butter. Love the colors, love the typography, love the statement. Love it. This is another find I spied on the wall of a room featured on Design*Sponge. Oh how I love you, Grace Bonney.
