SO! We’ve got a super gorgeous Valentine’s Day free printable AND giveaway coming up (!!!), but we thought we should kick off the week with a ridiculously pretty wedding… mainly because this is a wedding blog, not a Valentine’s Day blog.  And it’s easy for we bloggers to lose sight of that during the holidays.  [...]

{#1} VALENTINE’S DAY DIY PROJECT #1 | Mini Heart Cupcake Toppers by Andrea Gray Harper!

Morning friendlies!  Hope you guys had great weekends.  If you’re from the northeast, then that’s directly correlated to how well you bundled up, because it was colder than the devil’s heart this weekend.  Shocking, I know.  And we get to look forward to, that’s right, ANOTHER  snowfall this Tuesday!  Yes!  Isn’t it fabulous? Anyway, guess [...]

FASHION IMPOSSIBLE | I FOUND IT! | The cutest white reception dress you ever did see. Also, parking lot weddings?

So, it’s Friday.  Which is awesome.  I love Fridays for all the usual suspect reasons; they still evoke in me a gleeful “no school for DAAAYS” internal response, physiologically speaking.  (I feel a digression coming on…) Which reminds me, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but a recent study done at some college somewhere provided [...]

REAL WEDDING | Kent + Mallorie | French Country-Themed Backyard Farm Wedding + Tomorrow’s Giveaway!

Let’s start off with just a taste of why I LOVE this wedding, excerpted from the bride’s write-up: My husband and I were introduced by my brother over e-mail. They are both military officers and were serving a yearlong deployment in Afghanistan. My future husband, Kent, and I e-mailed frequently for the duration of his deployment. When we [...]

WEDDING MONOGRAMS | Wedding details gone wild! … Or at least a little overgrown. Also, I’m going to freeze my nips off tonight, but at least I’ll be eating cake.

So, it’s Monday peeps!  How about that?!  I know it’s not the custom but I’m pretty pumped about this whole Monday thing.  Let’s forget for a moment the fact that tonight involves having to brace the bitter cold that is NYC’s current weather pattern, and let’s also put aside the fact that this weather is [...]

WEDDING SHOE + SUCCULENT LOVE | A little Kate Spade goes a long way, baby.

I’ve recently jumped headfirst back into a Fiona Apple kick (past two days) and it’s kind of awesome.  I used to listen to her ALL THE TIME (ohhh boy if cars had recording devices…), and there’s nothing better than taking a little break and returning to an artist over whom you once obsessed.
