Real Wedding: Jennifer and Christian, X

Thank you so very much to Jennifer and Christian for sharing their gorgeous day with us...I think that I speak for everyone when I say that it was hugely inspiring. To know that you can design a magazine worthy wedding on a budget of $10,000 by looking to your own talents and ingenuity, well, it's really exciting!

Today's wedding is a lesson in all things chic. And, as the day turned into evening, if it's possible...it got even better.

Here are some of the vendors that Jennifer and Christian worked with to design their dream wedding...

Real Wedding: Jennifer and Christian VIII

The details from today's featured wedding are what really sing. The bride was so incredibly thoughtful with her favors...capturing the essense of the natural surroundings with small jars of Spanish Paprika, paired with her own passion for letterpressed stationery. There is a sense of cohesiveness with each and every element and yet nothing seems overly matched or designed. I love that.

Real Wedding: Jennifer and Christian, VII

We heart today's wedding so much, we're putting up more posts than we ever have on any featured wedding. It's just such a refreshing style with a light, airy blue and bright orange color palette, a bride that is simply stunning and an effortless elegance that just makes me happy. Plus, the whole wedding was pulled off for $10,000 making it even sweeter.

Real Wedding: Jennifer and Christian, VI

Okay, if you aren't sitting down...you probably should. I know, painfully dramatic, but this time, a dramatic introduction is totally warranted. We are finally on to Jennifer and Christian reception...an elegant, refined but completely playful style that encompasses the easy going, intimate vibe that Jennifer wanted.

Love, love, love today's real wedding. Before we dive into the absolutely gorgeous reception (seriously, people...there are no words), thought I would share a few really fun pictures of the fabulous bride and groom...

I am not sure who I love more...the adorable bride or the photographer, Yvonne Wong, that captured such beautiful, but totally whimsical photographs. I'd say both are keepers!

Real Wedding: Jennifer and Christian, III

I am so madly in love with today's wedding...mostly because the bride is so ridiculously lovely, the details are flawless and the venue is ridiculously gorgeous. But, also because the bride and groom stuck to their $10,000 budget, something that is really hard to do these days.

Real Wedding: Jennifer and Christian

Obsessed. And that is putting it rather lightly. Today's wedding is so fabulous, I am 100% sure that you are going to bookmark it in your must-have folders, pulling it out every time you need a little wedding pick-me-up. I had such a hard time narrowing down the photographs (which are amazing by the way), finding just the right shots to tell the story of the day...so forgive me if I am a little long picture winded today!

Jennifer and Christian were married this past September in the...

Wedding Invitations by Abby Jean

I couldn't possibly have a day of paper without featuring the brand nearest and dearest to my heart, Abby Jean. Many of the Abby Jean invitations were designed by yours truly, so whenever I see them, my heart does a little pitter patter. Abby Jean is the reason that Style Me Pretty even exists...it's where I learned how to run a business, how to find and develop beautiful things. In all honesty, it's the reason that I love weddings so...

Letterpress Invitations on a Budget

I know that a lot of you see letterpressed and engraved invitations and think to yourself...lovely, but so not in the budget. So, when I got an email from one of our readers as to how they had letterpress invitations designed while sticking to their budget, I knew I had to share it with you.

First, here are their invitations...

Jacqueline and her hubby had their entire suite printed through Studio on Fire based...

Even if elum is out of your budget, their...
