I'm telling you, if I could just be a bride for a living, I would jump at the chance. The hubby and I are on cloud nine about being able to go through the whole wedding process again (only this time without all the stress, insanity, and..you know, drama) for The Not Wedding NYC this month, and were thrilled to kick off the whole experience with a gorgeous faux engagement shoot on the Highline!
Photographer Jessica Oh was SUCH a blast to work with, and the photos she took exuded such a chic, city vibe.

About the piece:
This bracelet is made of links of hammered sterling silver and accented with single freshwater pearl. It was created by LA-based designer May Yeung, and each piece is made in Silver Lake, where she lives.
It is called the Sterling Silver Hammered Chain with White Wrapped Freshwater Pearl, retailing at $88.00. It is a Silver, 7" length bracelet perfect for that simple bride who loves the soft sophistication of pearl. A great piece for a less embellished look or even for the rehearsal dinner.
We always love a rustic barn wedding! And this one had so many beautiful DIY decor that were totally worth sharing. I discovered this wedding on Green Weding Shoes, with beautiful photography by Emily Chidester and the location was Beaver Dam Historic House, North Carolina.
There were many things I loved about this DIY/ vintagey wedding but I specifically loved the use of book pages (or sheet music) cones filled with lavender buds (in lieu of confetti or rice) for the ceremony exit.
The hubby and I are so excited to announce our participation in The Not Wedding NYC on May 22nd... I mean, who doesn't want a second wedding, without all the pressures and insanity of the real thing? The Not Wedding is a unique wedding event for brides- and grooms-to-be, which is staged as a fake wedding, complete with beaming bride and groom (yours truly!), a beautiful, emotional ceremony, a lovely sit-down dinner showcasing local caterers, and a dance reception featuring local wedding bands and DJs.
We're doing a photoshoot on Friday at the Highline for the save the date, and can't wait to get in the mood to get married all over again!
Check out the gorgeous inspiration board for the wedding in May... how gorgeous is the vintage feel with the rich, moody accent colors? Don't forget to purchase your tickets and come celebrate, sip, and get inspired with us!
We're so super honored that our wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty New York. We love to keep the wedding excitement rolling, even 9 months after we got hitched! Click on over to read the full post!
We love this gorgeous black, cream and gold invitation suite, which was a collaboration between the super creative bride and groom, and their super talented friends, and Brooklyn-based illustrator Joel Holland and designer Ploy Siripant. So elegant, and such a beautiful representation of the couple's design aesthetic and style!
How great is this hand drawn map? We love the delicate arrows that anchor some of the adorned text, and provide a perfect contrast to the calligraphy.
We adore this gorgeous stamp that the groom made. The elegant black wax seal and gold stamp on the kraft paper band really tie the whole suite together.
And check out the adorable insert with the quote, "When you love what you have, you have everything you need."
Ok, so really, I can count. And it's going to be the top 6! That way there are 3 STDs and 3 Wedding Invites.
I have been scouring the internets for great graphic design (really inspired to make my own holiday cards this year) and I discovered this adorable stationary company called Love Vs Design. I love their design sensibility and their quirkiness. Which below is your favorite??
Oh, and aren't these totally awesome? I'm inspired even more. Check out their really cool calendar and gift tag giveaways right now. I don't think you can go wrong with adorable and free printable tags!
