Green Wedding Invitations

I have been a long time admirer of Twig and Fig, a letterpress designer in the Bay Area. Their work is so organic and lovely, the quality is truly impeccable. So, when Suzie approached me about writing an article for Style Me Pretty, I jumped at the chance!

I have talked about planning an eco-friendly wedding in the past, but feel like it's important to keep discussing new and chic ways to make green choices during a time in your life...

A Dallas Wedding

Like I said earlier today, my best friend, Katie, got married a few months ago in Dallas, Texas. Her goal was to create a vintage-inspired, chic wedding without breaking the bank. I was a bridesmaid and spent hours chatting with Katie along the way...and I just knew, that with her amazing sense of style and her incredibly practical approach, she would pull off a perfect night...

Save the Dates

My best friend in the entire world, Katie, got married a few months ago and I have to say, it was one of the best weddings that I have ever been to. Katie has this sense of style about her that is so unique and personal. She is crazy and quirky, but she is also extremely family oriented and loyal...and her wedding was just that.

Before I share with you the photos from the wedding though, I wanted to post a picture of her engagement shots that we used to create her Save the Dates.

Wedding Cinematography

And finally, I wanted to share these last two clips from Elysium Productions (the amazing production company that shot Laurie and George's wedding on Bravo's The Real Housewives of Orange County...for all of you Bravo junkies out there). The first is a demo clip which I just thought was so much fun, I had to share. Plus, it won Best In Show at the Artistic Achievement Awards put on by the 4Ever Group...

The second clip is a sample...

Wedding Cinematography

This next film, shot by Weddings on Film, is absolutely beautiful...

Click image to view the film!

The choice of music paired with the stunning images from the wedding...so romantic. This bride is a reporter for NBC. She is insanely gorgeous and it seems that her beauty just leaked into every element of the wedding! But, what I really love about this clip is the approachability of it. The dogs with their cute pearl...

Wedding Cinematography

This particular clip, from Tangerine Media is a 2 minute trailer for a wedding that took place in Riviera Maya Mexico...

It's just so lovely! Makes me want to drop everything I am doing and book a trip to Mexico. It really captures the feeling behind the wedding, the gorgeous colors that are so vibrant and alive, the absolute beauty of the day. And the happiness. The bride, the guests, everyone is so happy....you just know that...

Wedding Cinematography

Wedding Cinematography is one of those things that may or may not make it on to your wedding checklist. I debated whether to hire a videographer for months, as the added expense seemed to tip the scale just a bit too far. In the end, we did hire someone to film the wedding and to this day....I think that it was the best decision we made throughout the planning process.

I've probably watched my wedding video twenty or thirty times since I got married. Every time, I see something...

Wedding Dresses by Adele Wechsler

Speaking of Adele Wechsler...

I was looking around Brides.com at some of the wedding dresses, and Adele's really caught my eye. I looove the detail on these simple, but chic dresses. The silhouettes are all relatively traditional and yet they still seem contemporary and fresh. The above three are definitely my...

A Real Wedding

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I thought that today, rather than highlighting the standard hearts and flowers and reds and pinks...I would instead focus on a wedding that seems to have love pouring out of every corner. That's really what Valentine's Day is all about, right?

I love this real wedding that was sent to me by one of our readers, Heather, who was married this past October. The pure and simple romance of the event just seems so touching. From the "wedding in the round" to...

Elizabeth Messina’s Wedding, IV

I have had so much fun sharing these gorgeous images from Elizabeth Messina's wedding with all of you! I am completely in love with every detail of this wedding. Just goes to show that when you bring two forces, like Lisa at Oh How Charming and Elizabeth Messina together, the result is magic!

Elizabeth Messina’s Wedding, II

Although it seems that every detail of Elizabeth Messina's wedding was executed to perfection, it's the dining table that really blew me away...

Is that not the most beautiful table you have ever seen? Here is another shot, from the front...

Again, there really are no words. Lisa of Oh, How Charming! designed this stunning table, hanging thirty chandeliers (some new, some antique) among one long, wooden table.

Elizabeth Messina’s Wedding

Today's post, well...it's kind of a big deal. I have been trying to find the words to introduce the wedding that we are featuring today and I keep coming up blank. As many of you know, I am a HUGE fan of the brilliant photographer, Elizabeth Messina. Her work is always beautiful...from the perfect details that she shoots, to the raw and true emotion that she captures in every photo.

So, when Lisa at...

Wedding Color Palette

Our last color palette dilemma for today comes from Kristen...

"I think what I really want is a mix that I haven't found in pictures yet. I think I'd like to do dark blue or dark bluish green for the maids but have the flowers be peachy/rosy. Our reception will be in a tent around sunset and I love the idea of tons of candles and warm light. Do you think this combo would work? I guess it would be similar to the palette yesterday of pinks and blue but for some reason that doesn't hit...

Wedding Color Palette

Our second color palette dilemma for the day is from Natalie, who is looking to have a green and yellow inspired wedding. Here is her question...

"I'm planning an eco-friendly wedding in June and I'd really like to play up thec olors green and yellow. I was thinking of a grass green or apple green, and a yellow to correspond. Do you think a softer yellow would be best? My fiance and I want a young, fresh feeling to our event."
