Lavender Escort Card Display

How simple, yet super elegant is this escort card display? Topped with calligraphy emblazoned escort cards, and the presentation is perfection.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend ahead!

Also, how is it OCTOBER tomorrow?!

Lavender French Macarons

I don't think I knew about Macarons until fairly recently. I studied abroad in France, and have been to Paris a handful of times, but I didn't really know about Laduree until after I moved back to the States. Last summer, I tried my hand at making my own macarons, and surprisingly they turned out pretty well. 

The Tartelette Blog has some fabulous macaron recipes which you can check out here. And how perfect would macarons be for favors or in lieu of wedding cake. (Although, I love me some wedding cake!)

Lavender Mason Jars

Between the light in this photo and the simplicity of the mason jars, my heart just swoons. Seriously.

Take me to Provence to sit at a cafe. Or to a little house in the country side and sit in the backyard staring at the lavender fields.

I think I need a vacation!

Perfect for a French Countryside wedding.

I want to go to France. STAT!

Style Board: French Country Wedding Ideas

If I were to go back and redo my wedding, I think I'd go the French Country route. First of all, I'm totally obsessed with all things French and have a special place for all things French Country. There's just something about lavender and the simplicity of life that just vibes with me.

So naturally, this morning, while I was perusing Pinterest, I couldn't help but look up French Country and lavender. And thus, this French Country Style Board was born. I can't wait to fill up with week with lovely and delicious French Country wedding ideas.

Delicious Endings

I've seen my fair share of useless and lame wedding favors. And I think wedding favors tend to get a bad wrap for being less than exciting. However, if I were to attend a wedding and receive a cake ball as a favor, I would be more than excited! It's actually happened before - great wedding, by the way. And being one for tradition, I couldn't just eat the cake ball during the wedding, but I waited until the car ride home. 

It was a delicious ending to a wonderful day.

Want to make your own cake balls? Check out this recipe by The Velveteen Baker.

Have a sweet weekend!

Ruffled Ombre Cake

I spotted these cakes on Pinterest this morning and couldn't resist sharing.

I'm not sure what it is exactly about the ruffled cake, but there's something just so pretty, yet simple about them. I've seen tutorials on how to do it, but I think I'll leave it up to the pros to ruffle up a wedding cake.

And this one is an ombre cake! How cool is that?

What's your favorite type of fancy cake?

Mixed not Matched Bridesmaids Dresses

For our wedding, I totally had the idea that I'd pick a dress color and have my bridesmaids choose their own style of dress. Sadly, in spite of my best efforts to give them a choice, they deferred to me. And my idea of bridesmaids with mixed dresses evaporated. It's okay because they still looked fabulous.

I came across this photo on Green Wedding Shoes, and it's the perfect picture of what I had once envisioned. 

What do you you think about mixed not matched bridesmaids dresses?

Tuesday Shoesday: Simple Black Pumps with Flair

How simple are these, but so gorgeous?

Typically, I don't much care for black shoes for a wedding, but these are just lovely. And they would definitely work post-wedding for any occasion requiring shoes with a little extra "something".

And I'm just thinking about how instead of buying brand new wedding shoes, you could do this with an already broken in pair of shoes. Breaking in my wedding shoes was a pain, and I ended up wearing flip flops once the ceremony was over!

Have a fabulous week! Anyone doing anything fun?

Engagement Session: Casual Day

When it comes to style, I'm definitely more casual than anything. The perfect outfit for me includes yoga pants, flip flops, and a comfortable tank. And if I have to go out with my husband, I'll slip into some jeans and a casual top. I'm not really a fashionista, though I'd admire the women who are. Every now and again, I require a short schooling in fashion designers.

But I do watch Project Runway.

This is a great outfit that would work for an engagement session, especially if you're the casual type like me.

Today and tomorrow will be "rest days" of sorts, since my Sunday and Monday will be packed. Sunday, I'm helping style a session (one of the projects I've been working on!). Monday, I head down to Austin for the day. And crazy me decided it would be a good idea to do a turnaround trip!
Casual Day

Comptoir Des Cotonniers oversized cardigan, €85
Abercrombie Fitch embroidered shirt, $24
Acne white linen shirt, $74
Old Navy bootcut jeans, $25
Tory burch flat, $195
LOFT cocktail ring, $20
Oroton cream shawl

What are your plans for the weekend?

Happy Friday!

Engagement Session: Casual Rustic

Personally, I'm not the type to dress up all fancy. I'm definitely more casual. I love this simple look of pairing a bit of a dressy top with skinny jeans and boots.

Engagement Session: Evening Glam

I think Polyvore has become one of my new favorite sites on the web. It's been super fun to think up outfit ideas, and I thought it would be perfect for planning an engagement session outfit. Sometimes it's hard to think of what to wear. And the possibilities are almost endless.

Playing around in Polyvore brought me back to the days when I played with paper dolls as a kid. I used to try on all the different fashions. So fun!

I thought I'd start off with a look that perfect for the fashionista, who loves a little bling and ruffles.

If you had an engagement session, what did you wear?

Seaside Wedding Ideas: Tablescapes

I'm ready for the long weekend, are you? It's been an eventful month already and it's only the second day in September. I have some projects in the works and I'm so excited about them. It's true that everything happens for a reason, and in retrospect, I'm so glad that job did not work out.

It's Friday, hooray! And I found this gorgeous seaside tablescape designed by Alchemy Events. Be sure to check out the entire shoot on their blog!

Seaside Wedding Ideas: Paper

So, it's September. How in the world did that happen. Part of me feels like it should still be the beginning of August. The good news is that the weather will finally start to cool...oh to you know 80 or so. Today's one of those days I really wish I was at the beach.

I love how both of these invitations suites would be perfect for a seaside wedding.

Happy Thursday! And Happy September!
