Happy 4th of July!

Happy Fourth of July! America is 238 years old. These were pictures from a fun styled shoot I did with the fab British photographer Celine Chaplin while we were living in London, it was a fun mix of the best of America (flags, Coca-Cola, cupcakes, picnics) and Britain (tea cups, cucumber sandwiches, flags, vintage postcards and the Beatles in the park). Looking at these again make me think how cute a fun patriotic e-session would be! Hope you have a happy Fourth!

Pretty Chic + Boho Dresses from Candela NYC

I recently discovered the clothing line Candela NYC and thought some of their dresses would make the prettiest bridesmaid, casual, boho wedding dress, pre-wedding party (think showers, bachelorette, and rehearsal dinner) or even wedding guest dresses! What I truly love about the line besides its obvious prettiness, is the re-wearability factor. Every single one of these dresses can be paired with a jean jacket or cardigan and worn again as a casual or cocktail dress. Oh and did I mention they are having a killer sale with most dresses under $250?? 
I just adore this long, off-white, off-the-shoulder, lace bohemian wedding dress! It just screams Jessa from 'Girls', would be perfect for a beach or destination wedding - with coordinating light blue lace bridesmaids dresses.


These pretty pleated dresses are flattering to most shapes, totally re-wearable and are reversible! The blue reverses to a lavender color and the pink to an off-white.


This pretty lace number comes in the same color as Pantone's 2014 Color of the Year - Radiant Orchid, and it strikes a perfect balance between formal and casual. It also comes in a peacock blue and ivory.


How about this lovely number with the killer back bow detail? Bow dress, $275 sale price

 This pretty, silk chiffon blousant sleeve dress with grosgrain ribbon waistband can be worn on or off the shoulder and comes in ivory and blush.



And ending with a little more boho, embroidery and sheer - the lovely, long Emma (also coms in black) and short Jane dresses!

Classic Springtime Elegance

I was feeling inspired by spring flowers and colors and put together my first inspiration board in way too long! Shades of peach and pink mingle with gold and deep emerald green for a sophisticated and classic yet fun palette. Have a great weekend everyone!

Marry You Me Empire State Building Wedding Picks

The annual Empire State Building Valentine’s Day Contest is fast approaching! Couples can submit a creative proposal by December 5th detailing their personal love story for the chance to have their dream wedding at the iconic building itself. RedEnvelope and Pro Flowers have been asked to lead the design team for the three winning weddings. RedEnvelope asked me to pick five of my favorite items from their wedding gifts selection as inspiration for their designers. Being a lover of An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle, weddings and romance in general, I jumped at the chance! There were so many great gifts that it was hard to narrow it down to just five items, but here are my picks below. I went for a mix of modern and classic traditional for a touch of glamour:

A canvas timeline of your important milestones as a couple.


LOVE the glow and the luxe golden look these give off - so romantic!

First off, it's a steal at $27.95! A touch of classic typography wood art to hang at the wedding and later at your home.


So chic, and a great way to remember a loved one or the one you are about to marry :)

Inspiration Board: Cranberry + Gold

Hello again! There will be some exciting changes happening to this site in the very near future as I re-vamp the site to add information about my wedding planning services, a portfolio of past weddings I've done and more. But most importantly the blog will still be here! I wanted to share this inspiration board I did that felt very fall/winterish. The deep cranberry color matched with a warm gold is just so season-perfect. It's a palette that's moody yet light, deep and elegant, playful and classy.

Tuesday Shoesday

It's been far too long since I paired some pretty shoes with lovely wedding related eye candy. The colors in this bouquet are soft but have an unexpected pop of color coming from that coral pink garden rose. It reminded me of pairing a white or ivory wedding dress with an unexpected burst of color from your shoes, or the soles of your shoes in this case, which (bonus!) you will be able to wear again more often than white or ivory shoes.
