DIY Contest Winners

What an amazing DIY Contest that was! I was delighted to share so many creative projects, I can definitely tell how hard it was to pick a winner. We counted the votes over the weekend and it was a very tight competition! Remember first place winner will receive $500 and second place a $100 gift certificate to the fabulous Wendy Mink Jewelry, so there was a lot at stake. We filtered all repeat votes and counted all the 819 votes. So without further ado, the winners are…

Second place winner is…

DIY Painted wine bottle centerpieces

Entry #24: DIY Bottle Centerpieces

From Hillary:
For my wedding, I will be painting the bottles all white, but I was inspired to try different colors for this project. It is probably the most inexpensive, eco-friendly way to turn something you have laying around your house into something unique and beautiful for your centerpieces or even your table at home!

First Anniversary Shoot

I love the idea of a post wedding day shoot. This couple got married last April and contacted the talented Leo Patrone to take some portraits of just the two of them in full wedding attire to celebrate their first year anniversary. They couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful time of year in Washington DC to do it! The cherry blossoms are in full bloom, and the scenery is so dreamy! The bride wore a drool worthy vintage wedding dress and lace veil she bought in London. Big thanks to Leo Patrone for sending this gorgeous session over.

So many gorgeous images to swoon over…

From the bride:
About the dress: the underlay is a cotton-silk fabric that I found at MacCulloch & Wallis, a haberdashery store in London that appears just as it did in the nineteenth century. The overlay is a guipure lace that I found after many visits to London haberdashery shops. It was made in Italy and patterned after a 300-year-old Swiss lace. I made basic designs for the dress, which my dressmaker, Jana Hill-Dyble of London, carried through to the final product.

I found the beaded handbag at Church Street Antique Market in London. The veil is Victorian and handmade, and I found this at Portobello Market, also in London.
