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!


The weather is finally starting to cool off in North Carolina and this gorgeous wedding in the foothills of Idaho is getting me in the mood for fall! Ashley & Brian’s closest friends and family all hiked up a path to the top of a hill in the gorgeous Boise Foothills (that happens to sit right behind the groom’s family home) for their intimate nuptials.  Brian’s brother performed the ceremony and asked all of the guests to step in close around the couple as they said their vows.  After the ceremony, guests rallied back down the hill and enjoyed a cocktail hour where gourmet appetizers were passed and everyone could enjoy an oyster bar along with the couple’s signature Mojitos.  The bold fall colors were such a lovely choice and look at their gorgeous dog keeping watch over the ceremony – he even has a matching collar!
