Theme Thursday: Inspired by Shakespeare

| Inspiration, Theme, Wedding Ideas

Happy Thursday!

I keeping along the Romeo and Juliet theme this week, so today’s theme is inspired by Shakespeare!

This wedding would be over the top luxurious + classy. With brass details, luscious florals and glamorous calligraphy, this wedding would be fit for a Capulet.

Pretty, don’t ya think?

Sing like you think no one’s listening…

| Inspiration, Music, Wedding Ideas

3 years ago I danced to my favorite song with my husband on our wedding day, and a year ago it was my first Music Monday.

As cheesy as it sounds, some of my favorite memories of dating my hubby are the days we just laid in bed listening to music, taking naps and dreaming of spending the rest of our lives together. He even used to write me love notes with the lyrics to this song on them – one of those notes is what made me fall in love with him.

Here’s one of my favorite lines:

Happy Wednesday, my loves!

Theme Thursday: Stitched

| DIY, Inspiration, Theme, Wedding Ideas

Happy Thursday!

You know that I like to be a bit crafty, so today’s theme is one of my favorites.

I love how the color palette for this Stitched theme came together – the colors work so
well together and the feel of this wedding is super fun.

My vision for this theme was to have the stitched thread look throughout, and I feel like that vision was accomplished, complete with stitching on the invites (a reoccurring dream of mine), stitched details on the cake and stitched table numbers.

I’d love to help plan a wedding like this someday.

I mean come on, candy button favors? What could be more perfect?

Theme Thursday: Vintage French Inspired

| Inspiration, Theme, Wedding Ideas

Today’s theme is inspired by French pinks and grays with a vintage feel.

I’ve never been to Paris, but I’d love to travel to Europe someday just to experience the lovliness and snap photos along the way.

For this theme, black and white accents with swoops, swirls and lace are perfection. A pale pink dress paired with Chanel wedding shoes is to die for.

Customized pink lemonade bottles as favors would be super adorable.

Oh, and I have a big announcement coming on the blog later today! Make sure to check back for the details.

Theme Thursday: Old World Travel

| Inspiration, Theme, Wedding Ideas

Today’s theme is for all of you jet setting couples out there. There is something so beautiful about vintage globes, old leather suitcases and lush florals that create this   sophisticated theme.

I’m in love with the color palate of browns mixed with an aqua and a sort of apricot/salmon color, and old maps are the perfect accent in your decoration.

For the bride – a couture gown and designer heels to match. Every girl’s dream 🙂

Did you check out that chocolate cake?

I’d definitely redo my wedding day to have a cake that looked as decadent as that…

Theme Thursday: Love Letters

| Inspiration, Theme, Wedding Ideas

 As I was putting this theme together I realized that this is a very Valentine’s Day focused theme… oops! I’m about a month early but oh well.


A Love Letter themed wedding would be absolutely gorgeous – with hand written invitations, lots of lace and pops of coral and red you can’t go wrong.


So intimate and romantic. And those Valentino shoes are stunning!
My favorite part about this theme is the color palate.


Sometimes red can be a hard/harsh color, but not in this sense.


Paired with coral, creams and browns it is really toned down and becomes a stunning accent. Yes?


What do you like best about this theme?  Write it in the comments below.

Just an FYI – I’m partnering with my friend Tracy Matthews who creates custom wedding jewelry in NYC, and she’d offering the first 5 people to contact her a 10% discount, which is amazing.
Seriously though – Charlize Theron and some of the American Idols have been seen wearing her stuff.. she’s good.

Fall is in full swing now, and before those last few leaves fall of the trees I wanted to design an autumn themed wedding, so here it is! 

I am in love with these colors. So deep and dreamy, right? 

Eggplant with Khaki and gold accents and total rustic-ness… and that dress!

Love it all.

Music Monday: I Walk the Line

| Inspiration, Music, Wedding Ideas

Who doesn’t want to start their Monday with a little Johnny Cash? 

This week’s song was one that I had to have on my wedding playlist:

I Walk the Line by Johnny Cash

Simple and honest, and Johnny’s low and deep voice sings it perfectly. 

Here’s a video of Johnny singing it live on the Tex Ritter Show when he was 23.


I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I’ll admit that I’m a fool for you
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I’ve known proves that it’s right
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

You’ve got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can’t hide
For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

You can never have enough Johnny Cash. It’s wonderful, isn’t it?
