Inspiration for your road to the altar

I am so in love with this color palette that I think I just might use it as inspiration for decorating our new house! And to start off, I bought this amazing print from Anna Emilia. She is an incredibly talented artist from Finland…I can hardly wait for it to arrive!


You all are going to love Travis and Christina’s beautiful California wedding – I think it might be one of my favorites this year! Not only is the wedding gorgeous, but it was sent over from a pair of my favorite photographers, The Youngrens. The couple decided to offset the beautiful rustic setting with gorgeous teal bridesmaids dresses, and honored their venue at The Temecula Creek Inn with wine related favors. The bride’s father handmade individual wooden wine bottle stands for each guest – maybe the best favor I’ve seen in a long time! All of the stationery was handmade, and each table number featured gorgeous calligraphy and flourishes. And I am sure it won’t come as a shock but I love the green and white florals, created by the talented Magnolia Flower Shoppe. A huge “thank you” to The Youngrens for sharing their beautiful work! You can see more images from Travis & Christina’s wedding on their blog, here and here.

Jacques and Paige met in Germany, and fell in love nearly instantly. Paige loves the color green (my kind of girl), so when he knew it was time to propose Jacques bought her a peridot engagement ring. He purchased it in Munich, Germany, the country where they met.

Jacques is headed into seminary soon, so the couple planned their wedding on rather short notice. They opted for a simple appetizer and desert reception, which turned out to be a hit with their guests. Since there was not a lot of time to plan their wedding, the couple chose a venue that was beautiful on it’s own, so they didn’t need to add in a lot of decor themselves. Paige says, “Thanks to a magnificent location, we didn’t have to do much decorating, and what we did do, we did ourselves. The bulk of the decorations came from a thrift store, a dollar store, Ikea, Michael’s, and ebay and I had a fabulous group of friends do the decorating for me on the day of.” Paige bought her wedding dress at a consignment store. She says, “When I bought the dress, they told me that it was a designer dress that had been used as a demo at a wedding shoppe, so it had never been worn in a wedding before. The tag, however, had been cut off, so I don’t know the brand. Either way, it was (and is!) my dream dress…I just wish I had another occasion to wear it soon.”
