A Jaw Dropping Fall Wedding

I will admit, this bride has been a blog reader in the past (not sure if she still is now) and we’re friends on Facebook because of that. And when I clicked on a link to her wedding she posted this week I was bowled over. Like, yelled out loud “holy sh*t!” as I scrolled through the pictures by Jose Villa on Martha Stewart Weddings.  Talk about the most dreamy, fall wedding there ever was. As a wannabe/frustrated wedding planner (I considered the career for about a minute after getting married) I love inspecting all the details that go into events like this.   They relate greatly to interiors too– see the end of my post for a holiday tablescape based on this wedding!

Fashion Friday: A Blue and White Wedding

I’ve mentioned before that when pondering creative careers earlier on in life I seriously considered becoming a wedding planner. I absolutely LOVE every aspect of event planning- from the fashion right down to the paper goods.  So I had some fun today styling a wedding look for a pretty spring/ summer event from the bride down to the guests! I hope you enjoy it (especially those planning their own celebrations!)

I am obsessed with Lela Rose’s bridal gowns, and this one does not disappoint.  Simple, elegant and a forever classic it provides simplicity but drama (hello- check out the back of it below!)  I;d pair it with light blue shoes (as a fun “something blue”) and statement vintage inspired chandelier earrings and a sleek updo.  A white/green/blue-grey bouquet wrapped in hand-dyed silk ribbon adds a pretty pop of color.  For the groom, an impeccably tailored navy suit and striped tie does just fine. Maybe add a pocket square for a bit more “fashion”. :)

Fashion Friday: The Most Gorgeous (Gray!!!) Wedding Dress Ever

I saw this wedding in Martha Stewart Weddings while riding the train back from NYC (I had run out of magazines to read and rediscovered how fun and inspiring bridal mags are even after you’ve been married 10 years) and gasped out loud when I saw this gown. I’ve seen some pretty alternative color gowns, but typically in blush or other feminine shades. But GREY is not one I had considered and am now in love with. This gown the bride’s mother found at Bergdorf Goodman two months before the big day.  It’s by Alexandra Vidal whose work is incredible (you can see all her past creations on her website).

Wedding Weekend in Palmetto Bluff

This past weekend my family went down to Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina for my brother’s wedding and it was such a wonderful experience I had to share with you.  Palmetto Bluff is HEAVEN. Absolute HEAVEN. I can’t wait to go back with Andrew and Henry for a longer stay.  The homes in this enclave are bananas- almost Truman Show perfect.  A mix of cottage styles with lowcountry charm, I could have moved into almost any of them!

Every inch of the streets was even perfect- prom the street signage to the gas lanterns all over the property.

A Wedding You Just HAVE To See.

I saw the wedding of fellow Boston blogger Amelia Eichholz yesterday on Style Me Pretty and just about fell of my chair. This has to be one of the most gorgeous weddings I have ever seen.  Designed by the formidable event wizards of Bash, Please and photographed by First Mate Photo Co. (you can see even more pics on their blog) this event is perfection from top to bottom. Take a look…
