Wedding Reception At Boston’s Parker House: Abby and Tait

Abby and her husband took a quick trip to Nashville, so I'm bending the rules a bit and showing off their wedding from a few years ago. Planning her own wedding led to the creation of Style Me Pretty so what better reason do I need?

Their wedding reception was at the classic Parker House in Boston. Abby is always urging you to do little things to make your wedding reflect your own personality. Let's see what you think about her little touches at their reception ...

Abby’s Summer Wedding in Boston, III

Abby and Tait were married in August 2005 at the magnificent Old South Church in Boston. I love the expression on Tait's face as he sees Abby walking toward him. I've seen him look at her like this many times since then, but this time ... was the best.

The majority of Abby and Tait's family live in Massachusetts.  An August wedding in her home town, Houston, would have been out of the question. Everyone in Massachusetts assured us that by the end of August, it would definitely...

Abby’s Elegant Summer Wedding In Boston, II

We found Abby's great make-up Artist, Lynne Avallone, through Abby's cousin Kristine. Kristine is a fabulous hair-stylist. She and Lynne frequently work together at weddings in the Boston area. I think Abby was most worried about her hair. She -- kind of knew what she wanted -- but couldn't totally express it. She didn't need to worry. Kristine read her like a book and Abby loved it! Kristine...

Abby’s Elegant Summer Wedding In Boston

Abby and her husband are taking a well-deserved day off after a speaking engagement at Vanderbilt. Since I have carte-blanche on both the SMP Blog and the Little Black Book Blog, I'm going to go out on a limb and tell you just a bit about Abby and Tait.(Abby, if you're reading this, breathe!)

Abby and Tait both attended Vanderbilt University, he a few years ahead of her. She knew 'of' him and he of her, but they didn't really know each other personally until a few years later. They...

SMP Loves…Minted!

Where you can find some of the most beautiful invitations you've ever seen, without leaving your own home! And if the weather where you live, is anywhere like the weather where I live (think, shoveling snow off your car only to freeze your rear-end off when you sit down inside), this is a really good thing. They carry some of my favorite brands like Mr. Boddington...

SMP Loves…Domino, Forever.

It's my favorite magazine in the whole world. It's the only thing that I EVER wait by the mailbox for, coffee cup in hand, knowing that the next hour is going to be heaven. It's the reason that I love design, love all things beautiful (well one of the reasons, at least). And Domino Magazine is closing their doors. Goodbye, Domino. I love you forever and ever.

The gorgeous bride, Halli, from today's featured wedding has stopped by to share a few of the FAB details with us...

From Halli...

From the get-go we knew we were going to throw a wedding centered around our passion + profession—design. Since much of a wedding’s experience and “brand” is centered around the location, we quickly started our venue research.

Real Wedding: Halli and Nick, II

Does anyone else feel like they have a split personality when it comes to weddings? Sometimes, I fall in love with the simple, rustic chic style that we feature so often on SMP. Others, it's the clean, white washed beach weddings. Well, today, it's this absolutely gorgeous, contemporary affair that the girls at Belathee sent me!

It's chic. That's all that needs to be said. It's so so SO chic. Much more to come, so stay...

Real Wedding: Halli and Nick

We feature so many outdoor, rustic/elegant style weddings that when I get a submission from a modern affair...well, I usually do a little dance. And, when the modern affair is as ridiculously chic as today's featured wedding, well...the little dance turns into a pretty big one.

The unbelievably talented girls at Belathee sent me this wedding which was planned by...
