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!

Terrain Styled Real Wedding

November 16, 2010


Anna and Chris had such a beautiful wedding, that incorporated both tuxedos and personal DIY style all in one event. Anna is a textile designer, so the couple utilized gorgeous quilts and fabrics throughout the event. The table assignments were listed on a giant framed chalkboard and a bluegrass band entertained guests during the cocktail hour. The couple utilized simple metal lanterns as centerpieces (genius) and had a local baker create pies made from family recipes. They helped develop the aesthetic and decor for the event from a designer at Terrain, which is surely why I love every bit of this wedding!

You’re going to love Lauren & Parker’s wedding! Not because they are cute enough to take home and put on your shelf (even though they are) but because their day was full of DIY details and so much happiness you can feel it resonating through their photos. Lauren is a friend of my cousin, so I was able to talk to her during her planning process and could feel her happiness all the way from California. She created the fabulous welcome sign herself, from scrap wood found in her alley, and wrote on it free hand with white paint (yes, really). For the escort cards, Lauren found three mis-matched frames at yard sales and thrift stores, and filled them with fabric covered foam board. She then bought tags from a craft store and then printed off all the guests’ names onto brown Kraft paper. She and Parker then spent some “tedious time” ripping out each name, to look less perfect than cutting them out. I would have never thought to tear the paper, but it is such a great result! The bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses in the same shade, and the groomsmen looked dapper in their grey suits and matching ties. All around an adorable event!
