I have to admit, this trend might be one of my favorites in the wedding world right now. I am LOVING the barn meets elegant wedding feel- with the rich wood tones, fresh green nature in the background, and homemade feeling to the decor. Ali and Jared tied the knot in June, and we had the privilege of planning their wedding. Enjoy these gorgeous photos, taken by Erica of City Lights Studio.
Well as you've noticed, we've been on a little blogging hiatus. But I have a good reason I swear! On April 25th, my husband Eric and I welcomed our new baby girl Evelyn Clara into the world. :) So I've been quite busy since then recovering and settling in to motherhood. She is a wonderful baby, very good-natured and independent already. And the sleep deprivation is getting better and better every week as she sleeps longer and longer (never in my life did I think I'd be so happy to sleep 4 hours in a row!). I'm getting back into the swing of things now, so my blogging frequency should pick up again in the next few weeks. We have a really fun wedding this weekend- very backyard elegance with pies instead of wedding cake and strawberry centerpieces- so I'm looking forward to that. Hope all is well and welcome to summertime!
(Want to see more photos of baby Evie? The lovely Lindsay DeDario did her newborn shoot, and she blogged about it here. Check it out!)
Kate Spade is a favorite designer of mine, with her crisp lines and use of bright colors. If you're looking for a preppy clean look for your wedding day (and a short dress!) check out Wedding Belles, Kate Spades new bridal collection. She also offers bridesmaids dresses, and tons of cute, colorful shoes and accessories.
I've been seeing a lot of gorgeous wedding images featuring boats lately, and I'm kind of in love. :) Plus, we have a fall wedding this year with a "lagoon" theme that we're considering using a boat as part of the decor, so I love to find more inspiration photos. From canoes to row boats to sail boats, if boating is part of your life then why not incorporate it into your wedding photos?
I thought this was a really cute idea for decor at a bridal shower (or, if executed correctly, a wedding). Photos of the couple are attached to ribbons, mixed with flower pomanders hanging on a window. This decor could be hung anywhere in your event space, and could be done horizontally as well. The little bags holding flowers along the windowsill are adorable as well!
