Real Wedding: Phil and Karen

My new photographer friend Shanni sent over these gorgeous images of Phil and Karen’s wedding and I immediately fell for the edgy city vibe of their wedding. I mean…it’s on a rooftop. In San Francisco. Enough said. But then, as I read the whole story about Phil and Karen’s wedding, I about fell out of my chair.

It turns out Phil and Karen had a gorgeous destination wedding planned for Cabo San Lucas. Invites were sent out. Flowers ordered. Officiant booked. Done deal. And then…the SWINE FLU threatened us all with inevitable death. So Karen did the unthinkable…she planned an entirely new wedding. In San Francisco. In…get this…ONE WEEK. So not only are you about to feast your eyes on a loft-a-licious wedding; you’re also about to get a grip on what one seriously organized and motivated bride can do in one week! Special congratulations are in order for this couple!

Peacock Chic

I’m currently lamenting the loss of our beloved monthly addiction: Domino Magazine. So much so, that last night, I started going through my archived copies. I came across a cover that I really loved and thought I’d do an inspiration palette based on the cover. The beautiful blue colors quickly lead me to peacock feathers, which I happily added. (MADLY in love with those earrings, by the way).

Quick note: For those of you, like me, that love to add gobs of candles to your tables, you ought to strongly consider the amber votives I’ve included here. They are a slight departure from the standard clear glass, and I’d choose them any day over the plain-jane version. I really think these add such a lovely warm glow to tables– quite irresistible, really.

Found this GORGEOUS ring from DiVanity Design after the fact and HAD to feature it. Swoon.

Fresh and Vintage

This beautiful aqua, green, blue, and yellow palette was actually inspired by the typewriter. My sister called me this weekend to tell me about the wedding she’d just attended up in Washington. Her favorite feature was the guestbook: a typewriter with one long piece of paper, where guests typed their sentiments for the bride and groom. My sister was disappointed that I’ve seen this idea done, but I thought, maybe all of you haven’t seen it. Here’s a super cute palette based on a typewriter I saw at Three Potato Four. Sadly, it’s already sold…but I’m sure some flea market or ebay seller out there has something that will do the job!
