I created this inspiration board for a friend who is having her wedding this summer in Vermont. She will be using vintage blush pinks, with hints of golds, bronzes, and greens. I love the combination of the colors- so garden chic! It’s going to be absolutely beautiful!

Sorry there was no Week At A Glance post this weekend for you all! I’ve hardly been home at all in the past few days. But nonetheless, I still wanted to be sure to keep up with my regular posting!

 

It’s engagement photo season, and photographers are definitely taking advantage of all of the beautiful weather this time of year!  Carrie of Studio Blu Images sent over this engagement session that she recently did at the University of Alabama.

What a beautiful campus! Universities are a great place to have engagement sessions, especially if it’s where you and your fiance met! Thanks for sharing with us Carrie!

We all know about Trash the Dress sessions, but what if you don’t want to trash your beautiful dress? An Encore Session is perfect, plus you get to take more photos with your new husband! When Alice Hu sent me this Encore Session, I loved it not only because the photography is awesome, but because the bride and groom (rather wife and husband) were so relaxed and comfortable. If anything, an Encore Session is a perfect way to get some great relaxed shots of you and your new husband in your wedding getups!

Okay, and this gorgeous bride wife just so happens to be my friend Darla, of Darla Marie Designs, which I didn’t even know until I saw the photos! I love how she added some accessories for this shoot too- what a great idea! Thanks for sharing your beautiful work Alice!!

I’m obsessed with wedding invitations and save the dates. I think they’re somewhat like a “window” into what your wedding is going to be like. When I saw Valerie’s new line of invitations, I knew that I definitely wanted to share them with you all! Here are some words about Southern Fete Creative that Valerie sent me:

 

Southern Fete Creative, formerly known as Butterscotch Press, was created after seeing brides struggle to find a fresh and modern invitation within their budget. As a wedding planner, I am constantly working with brides to create affordable weddings without sacrificing style. Why should their invitations be any different? I graduated in journalism and had a lot of experience with designing for newspapers and magazines so I knew creating what these girls wanted was possible. With out new collection, our aim is for brides to find one invitation that makes them say “I couldn’t put into words what I wanted, but this is IT!”
We have five collections, each inspired by different things. Butterscotch Collection, inspired by bright, colorful candies; Flora Collection, inspired my nature, Monarch Collection, inspired all these formal like family crests; Magazine Collection, inspired by actual magazine covers; and Polaroid Collection, inspired by your engagement pictures!

 

I love the inspiration behind the different collections! Here are a few of the gorgeous products from each collection…
