Love & Candy

Five years ago, on halloween, Chris & I became "exclusive." Three years ago, on halloween, Chris proposed & the wedding planning frenzy kicked into high gear. I was and still am the luckiest girl. Hence, my new{ish} little personal blog, lucky knot.

To all of you that have been following along since my post on engagement post the day after halloween three years ago & to those of you that have just joined in, thanks for reading! I hope that your halloweens are filled with as much love & candy as mine have been!

Texturized Bouquets in Plum and Pink

Janie Medley never ceases to amaze me with the bouquets she creates. I was a bride with a monochromatic white bouquet. While I still love it, there will always be a part of me that wishes I would have interjected a little color into my bridal bouquet.

Our wedding colors were raspberry and plum. I certainly think that this little beauty would have been a lovely substitute for my white bouquet of dahlias and mums. The textures in this bouquet are unbelievable....something that can only be achieved with the perfect mixture of more than 5 different flowers and bits of greenery here and there.
I do believe that those tall white beauties are milkworts. I would now consider them a must in each and every spring/summer bridal bouquet.
If you prefer adding more pink than purple to your day, Janie has created an equally beautiful pink bouquet.
It may just be my favorite pink bouquet of all time. Must be the abundance of texture and the inclusion of milkworts that put it over the top!

Escort Card Coasters

I share a lot of my favorite paper goods over at my other blog, Penned & Pretty, but I just had to stop by and share this one with you.
maemae paperie has some of the most awe inspiring invitations that I have ever seen. So it was no shocker that I loved these coasters that she had a hand in making.

For all of the details, check out this post. For now, here's a quick run-down. These coasters were used for the escort cards at Jan + Ben's wedding. Betsy {love, love, love}did the calligraphy, The coasters were hole-punched and tied with either a peacock feather, a bleached peacock feather, or a jewel {each indicated the meal choice of the guest}.
If I were a guest at this wedding, these coasters would immediately have gone into my purse in order to fully enjoy them for days/months to come in my home! Congrats on a beautiful product maemae & Betsy!
