Combine gold and black elements with an urban chic setting for a unique vibe like the wedding inspiration board above, or really deck out your big day with style, elegance , and old world glamour like the inspiration board below. No matter which […]

the italian alps (real wedding)

Somehow Ana and Frederico’s Italian wedding photographed by Luca Faz Fotografo seems so perfect to share on the day after Christmas. It’s filled with good food, good wine, and an amazing celebratory spirit. This London couple has family ties to the village of Rumo in Northern Italy and decided to have a small and intimate […]

12 days of christmas: 12 drummers drumming

For the final wedding inspiration board in our 12 Days of Christmas series we’ve got 12 drummers drumming. What came to mind immediately was a marching band and that led me to thinking about New Orleans and how traditional it is to have a band accompany the wedded couple through the French Quarter. Mix that […]

12 days of christmas: 5 gold rings

Gold weddings are extremely elegant, decadent, and classy. Gold lends itself to lots of different styles and I love the oh so slightly rustic vibe of this wedding inspiration board. The hot chocolate favors in mason jars and golden pinecones add a little shabby chic country style to an otherwise utterly refined wedding day. View […]

12 days of christmas: a partridge in a pear tree

Welcome to day 1 of the 12 Days of Christmas series! For ‘a partridge in a pear tree’ I didn’t want to go too literal with the inspiration but you will find pears, pear shapes, and feathers in this board. The powder blue, gold, and white colors work really well for a luxurious winter wedding […]

silver lining

As winter approaches, consider an all silver wedding. It is timelessly classic and glamorous and with silver, go bold or go home. Splash silver all over everything from your dress to your wedding cake and even your four legged ring bearer! With that in mind, I’ve rounded up some extra silver details to love: glittering […]

dusk blue

If you love colors then I understand your excitement whenever Pantone’s color report comes out for the next season – and they’ve just announced their spring 2012 fashion color palette: What do we think? What is your favorite? I’m honestly having a hard time deciding but I think it might be dusk blue. The wedding […]

black and gold

One of my favorite details in this gold and black wedding inspiration board has to be the DIY spray painted animals. They are easy to make and add a glamourous touch of whimsey to reception tables! Check out the full DIY on Heodeza. They are just so fun at a wedding! I’m loving this gold […]

aqua, green, and gold

All of the items below would be perfect for a warm weathered get-away after your big day. My favorite? Definitely that green dress (and it’s super affordable too!) […]

the kiss

Yesterday was the 150th birthday of Gustav Klimt. Born on July 14, 1862, Gustav worked with gold leaf in some of his most well-known pieces, such as The Kiss (seen in this wedding inspiration board) and the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I (below). The golds, rusty reds, and subtle greens in his works are perfection. photo credits: gold wedding […]

the great gatsby (reader request)

Many thanks to my very well-read friend Melanie for requesting this board! I couldn’t have asked for a better source of inspiration. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of my favorite books out there and the new movie preview (seriously can’t wait to see this) was chock full of eye candy. I […]

gold and peach

Peach and gold is such a lovely color combination – I think I’m obsessed!

Accessorize this breathtaking look with a pair of peach colored earrings, a stunning (as […]
