Trend Alert: A Black Spring Wedding

As Friday {finally} rolls around it’s way past time for the weekend! And we’re ending the first week in April on a high note with a fun trend for a spring wedding… a black color palette! You heard it right, a black color palette! I especially gush over this idea when it’s black for a garden wedding; there is something about the combination of garden and the elegance of black details… from a black chalkboard welcome sign or menu, a black cake, a black wedding gift card collector, I think you get the idea. Happy Friday!

Elegant Bentwater Yacht & Country Club Wedding

Today we have a huge treat of a wedding with so many gorgeous details and prettiness I don’t even know where to start! The wedding, held at the Bentwater Yacht & Country Club in Montgomery, Texas started with a ceremony on the water, was filled with beautiful blue details and elegant touches, and the whole affair was captured flawlessly by Jackie Ray Photography. There isn’t much else to say here except to just admire the lovely details!

Dress of the Week – Collette Dinnigan

Happy Wednesday! Well even into day 3 of April it’s still feeling like winter here in New York, but that’s not stopping us from choosing this beautiful (and summery) dress of the week by Collette Dinnigan. Where to start with what we love on this one.. from the top down, here we go: The intricate neckline, the embellished top, the almost not there belt, and obviously the gorgeously full tulle skirt… all of which makes this dress a perfect option for a Spring or Summer wedding (if we ever make it to Spring or Summer…)

Board {#6} Coral, Grey + Shades of Pink

Pretty in shades of pink plus a little coral and pale grey is what’s getting me out of bed this morning! Lots of colors perfectly {we think} blended together for a bright palette. This is a combination that makes you think twice. Well.. four times? One for each color maybe; because you usually don’t actually see such a variety in one palette – generally it’s just in the bouquet. But this is one thing on the Spring agenda that I think we’ll see a lot more of. Drawing on the idea of ombré anything… (that fading of light to dark on dresses, in bouquets – seriously anything these days) is where the idea for a combination of pinks and a sprinkle of coral came in. The result? Well I’ll let you decide…

Backyard DIY Garden Wedding

April officially equals Spring in the wedding world and prices are starting to heat up as Summer is just around the corner. This is always that time where we know budgets are out the window… Which is exactly why I wanted to kick off the wedding season with a beautiful and intimate garden wedding full of DIY handmade pieces like the wedding programs, the bride’s bouquet, and boutonnieres proving that a Spring/Summer wedding can be stunning – and not too expensive. The wedding, by Sincerely Liz Photography, was held in a peaceful outdoor garden, the colors – blue-grey patterned bridesmaids dresses blended with pale yellow touches here and there screams spring, but the DIY work pays off here; striking that just right balance of gorgeous and realistic!
