Our Pinterest Friday find! DIY Jenga guestbook wedding idea. The sign “Build Memories – Sign a Jenga Piece” was made from a wood board with decal letters.

Jenga Wedding Guest Book

The sign “Build Memories – Sign a Jenga Piece” was made from a wood board with decal letters. Just buy the jenga game and spread the wood pieces out on the table with 5-7 thin point black sharpies so your guests can write on them. Use a big fish bowl to put the jenga blocks in when they were done. We just love this idea!

Laura & Parker: Romantic Outdoor Wedding

It is one of the best things to see a wedding day that coincides so beautifully with a couples personality. It could not be more true of Laura and Parker’s wedding and the ease of simple beauty and sweet accents they sprinkled throughout their day. Laura has a soft and easy going way about her, so it was no […]

It is one of the best things to see a wedding day that coincides so beautifully with a couples personality. It could not be more true of Laura and Parker’s wedding and the ease of simple beauty and sweet accents they sprinkled throughout their day. Laura has a soft and easy going way about her, so it was no surprise when she chose this whimsical, romantic Hayley Paige gown to walk down the aisle in. She opted for a delicate, lace hair flower in lieu of a veil and paired it with a fantastic statement necklace.

The wedding was held was held at the stunning Carrigan Farms, where the natural beauty of the outdoor space was paired with bright pops of color throughout the decor and flowers. Laura’s incorporation of the floral printed bridesmaids dresses was one of our favorite highlights! We are so honored that we got to be a part of your big day – congratulations Laura and Parker!

Hayden Olivia Refreshed and Rebranded

We worked with the oh so talented Angela of Saffron Avenue to create a timeless, clean, and sophisticated new logo and brand design that would be versatile and memorable.

We worked with the oh so talented Angela of Saffron Avenue to create a timeless, clean, and sophisticated new logo and brand design that would be versatile and memorable. She took our vision and made it a reality. The combination off the peony, blush, gold and black together with the bold patterns and clean fonts are the perfect balance. We loved the design boards and color stories she produced and we could not be more thrilled with the overall outcome! Enjoy!

The Equestrian Bride

What is not to love about a bride on a horse?! The choice for Olyvia to do her bridal portraits with her horse, Lyric, seemed like an obvious choice. She has been riding and showing horses her entire life and it was only natural to include one of her greatest loves into the portraits for her […]

What is not to love about a bride on a horse?! The choice for Olyvia to do her bridal portraits with her horse, Lyric, seemed like an obvious choice. She has been riding and showing horses her entire life and it was only natural to include one of her greatest loves into the portraits for her big day. We love that Olyvia didn’t just pose with Lyric (the perfect name for a show horse!), but that she actually RODE him in her couture Ines di Santo wedding dress! The risk was completely worth the reward and Julie with Old South Studios magically captured the beauty of this bride and we do not think it could have been more perfect!

Olyvia, you looked regal and we cannot wait to share the photos from your wedding day!

Gorgeous wedding shoes are such a valued part of the bride’s wedding day look, but can sometimes be one of the hardest accessories to find to complete your perfect vision. There are many trends we have seen coming in the boutique this year and we thought we should spotlight some of our favorites! What would be your choice be?!

Sparkle

All Over Sparkle. It is your wedding day – glam it up! These shoes are fashion forward, yet still neutral and will go with most any dress.

Left: 100mm Fifi Strass Aurora Boreale Pumps by Christian Louboutin

Right: Champagne Glitter Peep Toe Platform Pumps by Jimmy Choo

Wedges

Wedges. Who says you cannot be cute and comfortable on your wedding day? Wedges give you the illusion of having on a heel, while still giving you great support to be on your feet all day.

Left: Hedy-II Textured Metallic Wedge by Badgley Mischka

Right: Ellyna Peep Toe Wedge Pumps by Nina

Kate Spade bow

Sparkly bows. Bows are a top trend in wedding gowns, and the bow effect extends to the shoes. These adorable peep-toe shoes by Kate Spate will add a that perfect finishing touch to complete your look.

Color

Shoes in color. Brides are showing a pop of color with their shoes, in pretty contrast to their dresses. It is a great way to incorporate your “something blue” or just to add that element of surprise!
