Inspiration for your road to the altar

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!


Sponsor Welcome!

May 20, 2012

First of all, a huge thank you to everyone for all the kind words about the new site! I am so happy to have you reading along and am excited for what is to come.  I want to take a few moments to welcome some fabulous sponsors to the blog (most of which have been with the blog for quite some time).  I am grateful to have their support and hope you will all check them out over on the right sidebar.

Novell Design Studio: If you’re looking for almost any sort of jewelry (but especially men’s and women’s wedding bands) be sure to check out Novell.  You can find so many different designs in several types of metals, and even customize your own made to order bands.

Wedding Futures: When my husband and I got married, we had already been living together for a couple of years so had a lot of the things you would typically register for.  If you’re in the same boat, Wedding Futures is a great alternative that allows you to start out with something you might need even more than new dishes – a down payment on a house, or even savings for your future family!

Anjolee: If you’re in need of any fine jewelery (earrings or other diamond jewelry to go with that gorgeous dress, perhaps) then Anjolee is a one stop shop.  You can find some lovely wedding sets, necklaces and pendants, and wedding ring sets all on their website.  Use the code listed on their ad to the right for a discount as well!

Gems by Emily M: I just adore Emily’s personalized jewelry – they would make perfect bridesmaids gifts or even a gift for a shower hostess.  She has a few Father’s Day options in the shop right now (a guitar pick for the musician in your life) so be sure to check out her Etsy store!
