Charming New England Affair

It’s finally Friday and I can’t help from feeling like it’s been a long summer week. But this gorgeous wedding by Green Pear Photography is making it just a little bit better.

From the photographer: Chelsea and Chadwick were married on very hot May day in New Hampshire at The Bedford Village Inn. The gardens and rustic New England look of this location made for some colorful photographs which beautiful shades of yellows, greens, pinks and tans. The bride chose this location because of it’s elegance but she also loved the look of the exposed beams and silos. The bridesmaids dresses are the shade “dusty shale” from J.Crew and the groomsmen wore tan suits with brown ties but the groom wore an ivory tie. Her DIY details included the escort cards, guest book frame, card box and dancing shoes.

Art Deco Inspired

Because I couldn’t kick the recent revival of art deco in part driven by The Great Gatsby, and even though I already put together this little inspiration board, I wanted to think a bit more on the theme… but this time with less emphasis on flashy gold accessories. So you may find this to be a muted version of our Great Gatsby board but hopefully more “useable” as mainstream wedding ideas!

Happy Thursday!

Dress of the Week – Roland Mouret

Happy Wednesday! Just a quick one today to sum up this gorgeous gown by Roland Mouret. Because where do you even start? I adore the neckline and bodice, the transparency of the deep v-cut plunge covered elegantly with the floral lace. And then there’s that gorgeous slit skirt… it makes this dress even more unique and fun, perfect for our dress of the week!

Emerald Inspiration

Have you heard emerald is the color of the year? Probably, since I’m about 6 months late {and I’ve only mentioned it myself a few times!} But that’s beside the point. As we’re getting into the depths of summer I wanted to winter it up a bit with this deep green – perfect for a {non-summer} wedding! But if you’re planning your summer 2013 wedding now you’re a little late anyway right? So enough with the banter, just some ideas on a modern emerald wedding!

Country Meets Modern

Is it really the second week of July? Somehow I’m still in shock by this but that just means we’re in full summer swing and full of lots of summer ideas and weddings.. starting today with this gorgeous Nashville, Tennessee wedding by The Collection. The couple, Briel and Rob chose Nashville for their wedding location since that’s where they got engaged and it was a good halfway location from both of their families.

From The Collection: Briel & Rob wanted a country meets modern look because they wanted their wedding to reflect the everyday moments that are intimate and homey. The didn’t want traditional though – Briel wore a short front long back mermaid dress. She wore a corsage and carried a crystallized clutch in lieu of carrying a bouquet. During the wedding the guests were seated in a semi circle. The bride and groom’s first dance was an elaborate choreographed ballroom routine to three different songs that represented their courtship. The reception was kicked off by a flash mob on the dance floor. And as their late night snack, the bride and groom served Chicago dogs in honor of where they currently live.

Nothing like a good Southern summer wedding to kick start another week!
