Real Wedding: Linda and Jason

Uh…I don’t know what to say about this wedding…because it is so freaking cute, I don’t even know how to handle it. I mean…if you have a super rad red leather couch as the feature of your photo booth, pretty sure you can do no wrong. This wedding shall be a road map to my own!

So unbelievably thrilled that Danielle from Skye Blu Photography shared these gorgeous photos with us!

Milk Pod Studio

As promised, I wanted to share a bit more of Milkpod Studio’s work. I can’t tell you how much I love fabric…all the texture and patterns really get my heart racing. So of course these bouquets and boutonnieres have me in a tizzy. These are definitely in the running for my bouquet, particularly because Milkpod Studio offers custom colors and custom orders!

Grandma’s Attic

I’m really feeling inspired by this couch. I’ve created a little vignette here for you that draws inspiration from Grandma’s Attic, with heaps of warm oranges and reds. There are a few ideas here that I hope will inspire you. First off, the rustic fabric bouquet, by Milkpod Studio. (I LOVE LOVE LOVE Milkpod’s work, so stay tuned later today for a full feature.)

Second, take note of the vintage tin. These make for GREAT centerpieces…either filled with flowers, or left empty and perhaps paired with a few more. Also LOVE the vintage suitcases, which are another super fun decorative element. And of course who doesn’t love a knit ruffled shawl? It a perfect completion of the look.

Fall Neutrals

If you’re not a fan of orange and red hues, but still love to embrace the fall season in your decor, find inspiration from fall neutrals. I’m particularly loving Fairyfolk’s felt oak leaf place cards, which double as favors. Heart it!

Real Wedding: Becky and Tyler

Can I tell you how lucky I feel that I get to post this too cute for words wedding? Oh my. Please note my new fave trend: pies. Forget the candy buffet and give me some flaky crust and warm berries. Mmmmm…. Way to go Becky and Tyler on such a charming wedding!

Special thanks to Trever Hoehne for letting me share his glorious photos!

Head Gear: The Hippie Band

These headbands, adorned ever so bravely across one’s forehead, are all the rage. If you’ve got the gumption to pull these off, then look no further than Ice Cream Candy, whose collection of handmade headbands have me reaching for the credit card. How cute would these look for an engagement session? Or perhaps bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or dancing and leaving at your wedding? Come on! I dare you!

Real Wedding: Preston and Tara

Preston and Tara’s love story, in a nutshell, is as follows (courtesy of Kristen Leigh, their amazing photographer): Bride born in Paris, raised in Brazil, Australia, Europe and America, becomes lawyer.  Meets attractive, dapper man lawyer at a wedding (I’m guessing they were the only two not dancing? haha kidding).  They fell in love and planned a wedding.

This wedding is SO MUCH FUN. I really love the vintage carnival theme! Special thanks to Kristen for sharing these images with me…I feel like such a lucky blogger! Check out her blog to see more photos!

Married: Sam and Matt

I don’t need to tell you how much I love Trever Hoehne’s work. When it comes to capturing light, he just can’t be beat. This wedding is rather lovely, with all of its mustard yellow. And the bouquet? I swoon!

Engaged: Brandi and Lee

Happy Monday! I’m back from a week of wine tasting and fancy Napa food. Yum. (Though my boyfriend was tiring of unrecognizable ingredients on menus. He’d rather have a club sandwich, apparently…read: NOT a foodie.) Anyhow, we’re back up and running and I’ve got so many things to share with you this week! Be sure to check back at 2 o’clock for a lovely mustard yellow wedding! It’s got me feeling all fall inside!

I wanted to start off with a little cake. This engagement session by She and He Photography is so super great, I couldn’t resist sharing. Both Brandi and Lee are chefs, so they wanted to do something fun that also represents their personalities. They decided to decorate a cake…and I can’t tell you how much I love the result!
