Real Wedding by Jen Fariello, II

Loving today's Mountain Chic (as the fabulous Jen Fariello put it) wedding. Family and friends gathered together to celebrate the gorgeous couple...without fuss, without pretense. Just a simple, absolutely lovely affair...

Love, love, love! So much more to come! PS...how cute is the chalkboard? Have your guests write well wishes on a board, then snap a picture. So much  more fun than a...

Real Wedding by Jen Fariello

Okay, so today has been one of those days. I am sure that a ton of you saw the absolutely fabulous wedding that we featured earlier today...well, it's potentially being published by a major magazine, something we didn't know when we received it. So, the bride has asked us to take it down. Lucky for us, I've found an absolutely gorgeous replacement wedding.

In all fairness, this wedding should get it's own day on SMP. It's just so incredibly charming...

Oh No!

In the history of Style Me Pretty, this is a first. We've actually had to take down the featured wedding from today...yep, the one that we are so in love with. The bride just let us know that the wedding is being considered for publication, something that the photographer didn't know when she submitted it to us. It's like handing you guys a bar of the best chocolate ever, then taking it back!

We apologize from the bottom of our hearts, but we'll be back in a bit with another...

Real Wedding: Mary-Kevin and Patrick, III

Love, love, love the sweet simplicity of today's featured affair. Oftentimes, it's the small, really intimate weddings that are the most beautiful. That really capture the meaning behind a wedding...close friends and family celebrating the joy of the occassion.

With that said, if your family is anything like my family...there is no way to have a small wedding! That is one of the reasons that I love today's featured affair. So many of the ideas can easily be adapted for a larger...

Real Wedding: Mary-Kevin and Patrick, II

I am really picky when it comes to the DIY projects that we feature on SMP. I want them to be chic, sweet and sophisticated, clean and modern...all together lovely to look at. I don't want them to seem terribly homemade but I do want them to have that lovely handmade charm that the right projects always have.

That is why I love the DIY ideas that we featured earlier today, and why I love the wedding that we are featuring right now!

DIY Project: Mediteranean Centerpieces

A couple of weeks ago, I put out a request to my Little Black Book florist and event planners for some really great, easy DIY centerpieces. I know that there are brides who are trying so hard to reconcile their love of chic, beautiful details with their thinning budgets. So I thought this would be a great idea! Well, we got a couple of really beautiful ideas for DIY centerpieces that I had to share with you! This...

SMP Loves…Jenna Hein!

I was reminded of her ridiculously gorgeous calligraphy when I was making my morning Oh Joy! stop. And it's for certain, I have fallen in love all over again. Her perfect lettering, her eye for style and design, her hugely impressive roster of clients. If I were getting married all over again, I'd book her in a...

From Kathleen..."This is a great project if you've got some time and want to give your guests something homemade. It takes about 2 months for the Vanilla to mature but it's a simple project and a...

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Nancy from Brideface for sharing your absolutely beautiful wedding with us.

I think that overall, aside from the simple, lovely decor, the bride's fabulous style, the perfect children and the dreamy photographs...what I love the most about today's wedding is the pure joy that seems to radiate out of every image. It's a little bit magical and yet undeniable real. I love that.
