Some flower inspiration

December 7, 2008

Peonies and Polaroid‘s post on arranging her own flowers has me inspired!


Pageboy bride

November 21, 2008

I’m in love with the North Carolina wedding of the author of Darling Dexter–love the blue, orange and white and white on white themes, love the groom serenading the bride, and most of all I am ready to reproduce the bride’s hairstyle as my own nuptial do.  The only problem is that I’m currently sporting a shorter page boy style, so I’d really have to dig my heels in a grow my tangly blonde mane out… Is it worth it?  I think so, look how she’s wearing a headband that looks like ribbons tied in a very Shakespearean manner!

I think I’m responding to this hairstyle because it’s paired with the dress that the. bride’s. mother. made. And the dress is in the same style family as my grandmother’s wedding dress that I will be wearing.

And while I’m on the subject of cribbing styles from other bride blogs, you should really get yourself over to Molly’s blog These Little Moments. She has some great Ocean State pics of her wedding and her make-up schema is amazing.  Molly, what blush/mascara/eye liner are you using?  I’m thinking I’m going to have to leave behind my Benefit Dandelion, no mascara routine for the wedding.

More wedding inspiration!

Found these wedding pics on a great photographer’s blog (Stacey Doyle who is unfortunately not available on June 20).

Here is the kind of blue sash I’ve been picturing (the dress is lovely too!):

Love the blue and white hydrangea theme too…

An awesome RW&B wedding

September 21, 2008

Love the Americana vibe of this wedding from Once Wed:

Whata lotta seersucka!

There are SO MANY bicycles-built-for-two roaming my neighborhood these days: father-sons, girlfriend-boyfriends, but newlyweds are really the only people licensed to use bicycles-built-for-two (at least in my book).

I love shots taken at this time of the evening. Love that sky blue.

New job, new project

In the meantime, how awesome is this photo?

May 5, 2008

The lilacs are finally out, the circus is in town and another Ocean State bride has emerged (thank God because I was beginning to think it was just the ladies on “Chatty Brides”)! Her website is here, and she has a fab Ocean State proposal story! I have a few guesses about the beach where the proposal took place, but since she says that it was near some rocks Elephant Rock in Little Compton is my top guess.

Engagemental brought the new Whim by Cynthia Rowley line at Target to my attention, and today I headed over to find some great kitchen/party items and picture frames. There are even yard games like bocce ball and badminton for sale, and, my favorite game of all: croquet. My sister still will never let me live down perhaps my dorkiest teenage moment, when, for my 16th birthday, I planned a ladies’ croquet party, complete with Hoagy Carmichael tunes and finger sandwiches. I still plan (fantasy) croquet parties, especially when I come across croquet sets like the one in the Whim collection (which was at the store but not online yet apparently). LL Bean also used to sell a croquet set, but it does not appear to be online today either!

Speaking of croquet, wouldn’t it make a photogenic addition to a Victoriana-themed wedding? If you have any doubts check out this Winslow Homer painting:

Below is a real wedding from Brides that took place in California at a place called Meadowood, where “traditional croquet attire” is required!

Another bridal croquet look from wedding photojournalist David Crane.

And below is a photo of the Dunes Club, in Narragansett, RI with some croquet hoops already set up!
