Emmy Fashion Inspiration

I very rarely watch the Emmys — which is sur­pris­ing because I watch far too much TV — but when I do I’m not usu­ally thrilled by the men’s fash­ions. As some­one who rarely wears black and white, the tux — although it looks great on pretty much every­one — was just never my thing. This year though, I was impressed by the lit­tle bits of […]

Vintage Book Cover Postcards

I spot­ted this project on The Gilded Bee the other day and thought it would be a great idea for the Save the Date post­cards. They look pretty sim­ple to make — take a look right here for the full instructions.

An Apple A Day

I can’t get over the cute­ness of these cup­cakes by Coco Cake Cupcakes!

Invitation du Jour

I’m absolutely lov­ing these illus­tra­tive invi­ta­tions by Lydia Nichols. Not only are the illus­tra­tions great, but I haven’t seen slim-jim-sized invi­ta­tions very often, and it’s nice that every­thing fits together in such a well-organized pack­age. I always like to try to make invi­ta­tion suites fit into some sort of con­tainer, so that guests don’t have to deal with […]

Invitation du Jour

I’m lov­ing the bld typog­ra­phy and geo­met­ric illus­tra­tions in this invi­ta­tion suite for a moun­tain wed­ding by Jessie Harte.

Jason Groupp Videos

After the fact, a video­g­ra­pher is the one thing that I wish could have fit into our bud­get but couldn’t. I would love to be able to relive the events of the day over and over and view them from a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive; which is why I’m lov­ing these videos from Jason Groupp Photography. Most of their videos are […]

Invitation du Jour

You may have caught a glimpse of these invi­ta­tions a lit­tle while ago (I believe they were round­ing the blogs when I was in Hawaii, and I’ve been mean­ing to fea­ture them since then). But in case you didn’t, you’re in for a treat. Sara Hanks Giessen cre­ated an absolutely gor­geous invi­ta­tion pack­age — which fea­tured a hand-bound book — for Christina and Mark, […]

Books Up for Grabs

We’ve been doing a major clean-up of our apart­ment ever since we got back from our hon­ey­moon, and this week­end I tack­led most of my pre-wedding stuff. After going through all the piles, I real­ized I had stack of wed­ding books hang­ing around. Truth is I barely cracked most of them, so I can’t really vouch for the con­tent. But I figured […]
