Don’t you just love Kaylah and Harrison’s southern Virginia style? This bride certainly knows how to rock a pair of cowboy boots! Kaylah and Harrison met in a dentist office…well, Kaylah’s the dentist and Harrison was in for a cleaning, and it was love at first smile. Kaylah and her mother created created a lot […]


Proteas have to be my favorite flower right now – I absolutely love the structure of them! So modern and mildly weird 😉 Proteas are native to South Africa and have been growing in popularity (some say that proteas are the new succulent) so you can find them pretty much anywhere now. Incorporate them into […]

all buttoned up (real wedding)

A couple of months ago when I published a button themed inspiration board Casey Fatchett tweeted that he had just shot a REAL button themed wedding! I couldn’t believe my luck when he submitted James and Summer’s gorgeous DIY wedding. All of the details at this wedding are thoughtful, creative, and completely outstanding. Summer and […]

Food trucks are all the rage and many big cities have fleets of gourmet food trucks to choose from. Opting for a food truck reception is a fun and modern way to have a more intimate wedding reception at the location of your choosing. This way, you aren’t tied to an indoor dining hall, and […]

Mismatched bridesmaids dresses are a very popular trend right now, and an easy way to get this look without all of your girls appearing too differently is with pastels. Have each of your bridesmaids wear a different pastel color and you’ll put it off! (via) (via) (via) This picture makes me laugh every time I […]

tender shoots

This wedding inspiration board was inspired by Pantone’s tender shoots, one of the hot new color predictions for spring of 2013. But, it also combines a few more from Pantone’s color report: dusk blue, linen, nectarine, and lemon zest. I adore this fresh color palette – it’s so perfect for a spring wedding! Tender shoots […]

judy jetson

I can’t say that I was ever a Jetsons fan, but I do love the retro futurism vibe of the show. Don’t be afraid to go all out ‘quirky’ on your wedding day – if you and your groom love a good themed party and grew up watching The Jetsons, have a Jetsons themed wedding! […]

antlers and arrows

Animal heads and antlers are a growing trend in the wedding world and I love it! But, if using real antlers and such makes you a little squeemish (example here and here), then make sure you check out the faux animal heads from White Faux Taxidermy ☜ seriously. I’m obsessed. images via White Faux Taxidermy’s […]

sea foam, coral, and yellow

Ever notice a detail in a wedding and think ‘omg! I want to do that!’ and then you set it aside because you’ve never done anything like that before and it just doesn’t compute? Well, I’m here to urge you to look a little closer at the details you’re crushing on – there is always […]

the girl next door

There is something so romantic and ‘hollywood movieish’ about falling in love with the girl next door, growing up, asking her to marry you, and having an intimate lakeside cottage wedding. There must be a movie about that somewhere, I just can’t think of it. Intimate, home style weddings lend themselves perfectly to unique floral […]


A report from the Food and Drug Administration claims that 45 million Americans have tattoos and that 36% of people between the ages of 25 and 29 have a tattoo. That’s a lot of ink! I thought it was about time we had a post dedicated to inked brides everywhere; the ones who wear their […]


Nothing says ‘let’s celebrate’ quite like confetti and incorporating confetti into your wedding is a fun and festive way to go. One of my favorite confetti trends is called ‘the confetti blow.’ Actually, I’m not sure if that’s the technical term or not, but that’s what I call it! Basically, your photographer takes a picture […]

Seersucker is a thin, puckered, all cotton fabric that you will usually find in striped or checkered patterns. It is absolutely perfect for summer and spring weddings!
