Real Wedding: Jennifer and Trey

Jennifer emailed me about a month ago with pictures and details from her recent wedding...and when I saw them, there was just something special there. From her traditional ceremony held in a small chapel in Lexington, Kentucky to her ridiculously great reception at the Kentucky Aviation Museum (complete with airplanes hanging from the ceiling!). And of course, her dress...oh her wedding dress. photographs by the oh-so-talented Frank...

Real Wedding by Jen Fariello, IV

Let me tell you what I love about Jen Fariello, the photographer behind today's great wedding. There is nothing fussy about her photographs. Each image is shot with a clarity that I crave...where you can see the absolute joy in a bride's eye, the sweet details that make a wedding unique, the unabashed happiness in a mother's face. She shoots each wedding as if it's the first she's seen and the result is usually magic.

For more eye candy and inspiration you HAVE to check out...

Real Wedding by Jen Fariello, III

Thank goodness for Jen Fariello. Since we had to pull today's earlier wedding, I am loving Jen even more than I did before, as I just happened to have this absolutely lovely wedding sitting in my inbox. So I guess that I can say, Jen saved the day!

Gotta love the Pabst Blue Ribbon...adds that touch of Mountain charm that the couple was really going for! More to come!

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: Florida Love Story … from Agnes Lopez Photography

A Florida Romance: Two Sides To Every Story

Arden's Version It was just another Friday night and she was tired. Not much in the mood to go out, but Marianne twisted her arm. They ended up at Finn McCool's on the beach. In one of those Gray's Anatomy-like scenes ... two hot guys enter the bar and eyes lock. But lo and behold, only one of the guys is available. That's OK with Arden. It was the other one she was looking at, anyway.

Dave's Version Friday afternoon, his friend...

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!

Well, we got a couple of really beautiful ideas for DIY centerpieces that I had to share with you! This...
