An Inspired Affair…

The lovely and talented Elizabeth Messina sent me these oh-so-gorgeous images from a recent wedding that she did...

Let me tell you what I absolutely love about these photos. They are traditional, they are elegant, they are magazine-worthy. And yet, there is a level of simplicity about the style of this wedding, that seems so approachable and real. Although I am sure this wedding was quite spectacular, it's a look that seems to...

Black and White Wedding Photography

There is just something about black and white photography. Although I am usually partial to the brilliance of a beautiful, full color photo... when it comes to weddings, the black and white photography will make me tear up every time. It's timeless, it's romantic...it's sort of magical.

I am absolutely smitten with the work over at Artisan Events, a Little Black Book member and a...

Wedding Dresses by Austin Scarlett

If the gowns that I featured earlier today were stunning in their simplicity and affordability, this next set of gowns are those that we dream about as little girls. Fairytale dresses fit for a queen.

Designed by Project Runway's Austin Scarlett for the beloved Kenneth Pool brand, these dresses are basically works of art...

The detail is quite unbelievable...the...

Wedding Dresses by J Crew

I spent some time last night pouring through the Spring and Fall 2008 bridal runways on Brides.com...and I am officially blown away by that J Crew! I am just so impressed by the sweet sophistication of their wedding dresses...

And we all know, the bridesmaids dresses are just too cute for words... especially, the new plaid one!

I love that a classic, old brand is really trying to redefine themselves with their new bridal line. I know that last year...

Calendars by Pearl Papers

I was poking around Pearl Papers, the Black Pearl Paper online shop, when I stumbled upon these oh-so-cute, letterpressed calendars!

I am going to pick up a few for gifts...they are so perfectly lovely! Plus, they are packaged in that great reusable cotton, drawstring bag, so there's no wrapping required. Love...

A Winter Wedding Color Palette

About once a week, I pull out all of my back issues of domino and blueprint magazine, get settled on the sofa...and start my quest to find inspiration. Tuesdays have become somewhat of our "color palette" day, so when I saw this stunning floral arrangement in Domino, I thought it perfect inspiration for today's post...

I have been in love with this particular page for a long time...and now envisioning it as a winter wedding palette...

This palette just blows me away...the hue of the purples, paired with the slight touches of red and gold...absolutely gorgeous. And, it seems appropriate for any fall or winter...

I absolutely love all of the details that Natalie infused into her wedding. Each element made the day seem personal and completely unique...

The save the dates and invitations were created and designed by Natalie...how great is that Horse-Shoe inspired Save the Date? I absolutely love it! The photo on the bottom left is Natalie's rendition of a guest book...she had her friends and family write little notes, then be photographed...

Wedding Invitations by Abby Jean

So the invitation that was inspired by the gorgeous inspiration board that I posted earlier today is....

This particular invitation is from our Jill Collection...engraved white and slate ink on a sage green paper. What I loved about the wedding that we featured earlier today, is that it seems sweet but sophisticated, soft but substantial. I love the blend of tradition and the feeling of intimacy. That is just what I wanted this...

An Inspired Affair…

It has been a couple of weeks since we've done a feature on our Inspired Affair series. And, since this inspiration board featuring photographs by Lisa Leigh, is one of my favorites within the Abby Jean album, I thought it was about time I shared it with you!

For those of you that aren't familiar with the Inspired Affair series...here's the rundown. The new...

Wedding Invitations by Cat Seto

Just when I thought that I had put the purple palette to rest, my dear friend Cat emailed me a photo of a new purple invitation from her wedding line. It's so lovely, I just had to share!

Although Cat's invitations are sold in stores nationwide, she also has one of the most wonderful little shops in the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. She is all talent and her shop reflects her gorgeous aesthetic to perfection. Cat is actually...

Wedding Cakes by Bakery Bar

As I was working on our Portland Little Black Book, I stumbled across the most adorable cake company that I have seen in a while...Bakery Bar. Aside from their ridiculously cute holiday cakes, they also have some gorgeous wedding designs...

Ummm...how great are these? The bird's nest is my favorite, though for a winter wedding, those snow men are just about as good as it gets. Love...

Purple Inspiration

Although I struggled a bit with yesterday's board, Danielle over Oh Happy Blog did a brilliant job at creating a purple inspired board for her client...

I think that this is more likely the direction that our bride wanted to go in. And I have to say, although purple really isn't one of my favorite colors, I think this totally works. It's elegant, with kind of an understated opulence. It's not overdone or themed. Nice work...

Purple Color Palette

Wow...you guys made some great suggestions. I particularly love the idea of infusing the palette with a bit of raspberry. There is just something about the red/pink hues that suggests warmth and romance. I also really like the orange hues but for now, I thought I would stick with the colors that I am initially pulled towards...

Purple, Gold and White Color Palette

One of our readers recently emailed me for some help on designing her best friend's color palette. Of course, happy to help...I got to work. The bride wants a purple, gold and white color palette. Which instantly reminded me of Mardi Gras. The best friend who is helping, is trying to figure out a way to create a warm and inviting palette inspired by these colors, without seeming gimmicky or over-styled.

To be perfectly honest, I am struggling with this one. The purple and gold seem...
