Inspiration for your road to the altar

I adore these faux bois invitations from Magpie Paperworks!  They even include a custom sash that you can choose from three options of natural fibers.  And don’t miss the wording – who wouldn’t want the phrase “is madly in love with” included on their invites?  Perfect!


Beth and Michael both work in book publishing and hosted their gorgeous fall wedding at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center in Connecticut.  Despite some rain on their wedding day (good luck, right?) it’s clear from the gorgeous images that their joy wasn’t dampened at all.  Aren’t those dahlia’s gorgeous?

I am so thrilled to welcome a new sponsor to the blog – the lovely jewelry site Brilliant Earth!  Not only do they have gorgeous jewelry and engagement rings, they are incredibly responsible both ethically and environmentally and offer “beyond conflict free guarantee” so that you know their diamonds are properly sourced and meet the highest environmental standards.  They have both men and women’s rings and you can customize your design so that you can essentially design your ring yourself.  And if you are looking for something even more unique?  They have a fabulous selection of antique engagement rings (my personal favorite)!  Be sure to check out their website and keep them in mind for your jewelry needs – it always feels so nice to help support an ecologically responsible company!
