The darling newlyweds in today’s wedding are a couple of high school sweethearts who, at long last, said I Do in the Pacific Northwest. Alex Lasota Photography, Belle Gardens, and Special Touch Florist made sure the day was as romantic as possible, not even letting a sprinkle of rain dampen the couple’s spirits! We’re particularly taken with the couple’s lush sweetheart table, not to mention the super sweet gazebo ceremony.
Today’s styled shoot taps into the romance of art in all its forms, from still life paintings to floral design to fashion.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the hand painted wedding cake with geometric accents — be still our hearts!

Thank you to Elizabeth Duncan Events and Amaryllis for your work on this beauty!
Now that the excitement of Eclipse 2017 has died down, we thought we’d share this sweet pick-me-up to get Tuesday kicked off right!

Bride Maria set to work planning it all, bringing in The Little Branch to create lush floral arrangements and Mirelle Carmichael to photograph every detail and happy moment. Congratulations, newlyweds!

Perhaps the best thing about planning your wedding is knowing you’ve got a solid squad behind you. And what better way to pop the bridesmaid question than with personalized goodies she can use forever? Now it can be tough to decide on the one perfect gift for your gals, but we’ve got a tip to save you from the Undecided Syndrome: don’t choose between. Our friends over at Things Remembered make it easy to throw that either/or mindset out the door, and we were giddy when they asked us to put together a bridesmaid gift box with some of the starlets from their newest collection. Jess from Cheers Babe is the stylist behind this vibrant friendship fete, and the way she channeled pink, gold and a little bit of bubbly to present these lovely treats is pure magic!
There’s no cookie-cutter recipe for a gift box like this. After all, everyone’s friendships look different so their gifts should too! The good news is that Things Remembered has a treasure trove of goodies, customizable with etching, engraving and embroidery in a whole myriad of colors + fonts. So if you’re a design maven, we’re not kidding when we relate this experience to Disneyland. From jewelry to keepsakes to tabletop delights, the possibilities are endless. But to get your feet off the ground, we’ve narrowed down our top 3 must-haves from this year’s collection.
1. Monogrammed Bracelet
Choose something that she can dress up or dress down. We love that this charm can be engraved with her initial, monogram or even the wedding date, and the knot is a forever reminder of the special bond you share.
2. Jewelry Tray
If you’re providing wedding day jewels for all your gals, a sparkly trinket is the perfect way to keep these pieces organized. Not to mention it’s pretty photogenic.
3. Leather Pouch
A carry-all clutch makes for a stylish + practical addition to any Bachelorette weekend. And a bright pop of color? Yes puh-lease!
So you may not have given her a ring, but you can still celebrate with something sparkling! Pair her bridesmaid box with a set of sleek gold-rimmed champagne flutes for a celebratory toast. Everything’s better in gold right? We encourage you to use these items as a base and include that one extra item that is so undeniably them. Be it a retro album from that concert you attended in high school or a scent from your favorite vacation spot… toss it in the box and she’s sure to say “I do!”
Phew – now that you’ve got the bridesmaid proposal under your belt, take a peek into all the other personalized items on their site. From wedding decor to registry items to anniversary gifts, they are #winning in the wonderful world of weddings. And to put the cherry on top, they’re offering a free heart keychain engraved with your new last name to everyone who signs up for their wedding emails.
