I was excited to see that Vera Wang has recently created a line of bridesmaid dresses for David's Bridal. They are nicely designed, inexpensive, and available in a wider range of sizes than most "off the rack" bridesmaids dresses. I think this is a step in the right direction for David's Bridal and bridesmaids dresses in general. There really aren't enough affordable and wearable options out there.

Congrats to the state of New York for legalizing gay marriage today! This is a great step forward for our country and for the many same sex couples wanting to legalize their union. Everyone should have the opportunity to marry whomever they want and to make their own dream wedding come true!

BHLDN is the new online bridal shop from the same company that created Anthropologie, so of course I was eager to check it out. There are lots of pretty, vintage inspired dresses, shoes and accessories. One of the neat parts is that they allow you to create your own mood boards on their site. Below is a mood board I created called Clouds and Petals. It reminds me of a gray day with rain drenched petals brightening up the landscape.

Gina and Garrett were married on February 19 at St. Peter's Chapel on Mare Island. They held their reception at the Gardens at Heather Farm in Walnut Creek, California. Below is a lovely video of some of the photos captured from the day by Alnie Figueroa of Purple Fig Photography (www.purplefigphoto.com). More photos to come! Enjoy!

I'm so excited about my first attempt at a wedding inspiration board. Here it is! I call it Country Peach. It's a mix of English countryside, vintage, and lace using a peach and green color combination. I'm sure there will be more to come, as I can see how this will become addicting! So much fun!

Weddings bring out the romantic in all of us, and nothing is quite as romantic to me as vintage lace. There are so many ways to incorporate it into your day, from a modern lace and chain necklace to a vintage lacy wedding dress. It could even be added to decor such as bouquets, tablecloths, or escort cards. Adding just a little bit of lace goes a long way, and it's a great way to add some depth to a more modern styled wedding.

Happy Holidays everyone! I thought I would share some lovely winter inspired weddings and images. I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season, however you choose to spend it! I personally love any excuse to celebrate. Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and Happy Winter Solstice!
These mini gifts would be great as wedding favors or even place cards!
A (hopefully fake) fur stole is a nice winter accent.
These wooden flowers have a cozy textural element. Incorporating cable knits would also be a fun idea.
Dramatic winter bouquets of Queen Anne's Lace.
A gorgeous lace covered cake.
