Throw Ring

Remember this engagement session that I was so enamoured with!?
Well, the photographer, kate headley, just posted a sneak peak of one of the details from their wedding. And it totally ties into their engagement session!
The couple's adorable dog was featured in their engagement photo {left}. An adorable cookie reflected the black lab with an orange throw ring {right}, paying homage to the couple's too-cute-for-words engagement pictures. Needless to say, I cannot wait for the rest of the wedding pictures!!!

White and Fluffy

A short little post for you today as it's Monday. My weekend was spent travelling {per usual}, attending my niece's soccer game, reorganizing my closet completing a penned & pretty order and doing too many loads of laundry. So I'll just leave you with this little gem of a bouquet. I am in love the fact that its a stunningly simple bouquet filled with texture. There once was one lucky bride that got to clutch this bouquet on her special day!

Just Beachy

My dear friend Debbie is getting married in Destin, Florida this coming June and has chosen Candice K to be her photographer! As I wait for Candice to post Debbie and Andrew's engagement pictures, I thought that I would share this recent beach wedding she shot. I'm not always a lover of dress shots, but the light coming through the window blinds and illuminating this dress makes it easy to look at and love.
The bride's hair, make-up, jewelry and bouquet all compliment each other nicely. Soft and stunning.

A lovely shot of the bridal party. I am always a fan of men in khaki suits for a beach wedding. It gives off the perfect formal-but-casual vibe.
A beach/destination bride cannot go wrong with a simple centerpiece accented by a sand dollar and shells {while in Rome...}. The starfish is an added bonus, in my opinion.
I am so excited for candice to photograph Debbie and Andrew's wedding. And if I could just request one thing, it would be that she would snap a picture of them like this:photos on the blog of candice k from the wedding of brittany and kevin

Poster Mat

Chris has constantly been telling me that we have too many pictures of him and I around our house. I justify it by saying that we have beautiful wedding and engagement pictures along with 4 years of documented memories that i just need to display. Besides, it's not like we have a child {or dog, for that matter} to take pictures of and display around the house!
Recently I saw this post at we met in a bar featuring the lovely poster mat from their wedding:

In my personal opinion, this has to be the next big trend {RIP picture mat}. Purchase a {wedding/love} print that you both love and want to hang in your home. Have your guests sign it and it's guaranteed to have a special place in your home and hold a special meaning for you both.
Naturally, Heather from we met in a bar, had a gorgeous instructional sign accompanying the marker jar to let her guests know they were welcome to sign the mat.
We had our wedding party and close family sign a picture mat at our rehearsal dinner {we had our guests sign a blurb guest book at our reception}. The signature mat is still sitting on the floor of our home office. I know, sad but true. One day it will find a home. I can't help but think that Chris would gladly let me hang a print, like the one above, before he lets me hang another picture of ourselves {picture mat included}. Le Sigh.
That being said, all you brides-to-be out there, jump on the poster mat bandwagon! I would love to see what poster you find for your guests to sign!

Long Live the Weekend

Monday can be hard to wake up to. So, I hope that you all thoroughly enjoy the weekend. Make it worthwhile by cuddling up to the one that you love and partaking in a glass of wine {or two}. Sprinkle in time with family, if possible, and catch a breath of the lovely fall air.

For those of you getting married this weekend. Live every moment of your big day, and get a little one-on-one time with your new husband. After all, who wouldn't want a picture like the one above!?

Nautical Wrap

Erin at Lucky Me! recently posted this lovely little eye candy of a fellow blogger {Aylee} that is planning her wedding with a nautical theme!

You all should know that nautical themed weddings hold a close little place in my heart as I spent my childhood summers at the lake and the anchor represented my sorority's ideals and beliefs. Once upon a time, I was planning a nautical wedding.

So, imagine my glee when this picture of Aylee's DIY bouquet appeared in my google reader!

I don't think that a bouquet could get more lovely! You cannot go wrong with hydrangeas, a nautical rope bouquet wrap and a bow to finish it off. Loves it.
