My sister-in-law reached out to the [...]
When it comes to wedding design, I gush over the place settings used in the table decor. The way the layering, the details and the flatware all come together to create wonderful, beautiful look for your guests to be greeted with when they get to the table. Vintage place settings, wooden box centerpieces, succulents and flowers as favors, wood chargers - I love it all! What do you think[...]
In my mind, BHLDN can do no wrong. And when it comes to gowns, they always hit the nail right on the head.

Here are a few of my favorites in this installment of Coveted and Kept. Stunning[...]
