Tables by Salt Harbor Designs

I am OBSESSED with these table settings that the amazing talented Jennifer Rose-Sandy of Salt Harbor Designs conceptualized for a recent photoshoot. Absolutely, positively gorgeous.

The shoot took place at a little house on a brand new event property at Orton, built in the 1800's. It was originally occupied by a farm hand and his family, though not sits empty except...

DIY Moss Covered Monograms

I know that some of you are DYING to know how to make those adorable DIY Moss Covered Monograms from today's featured wedding. Well, the bad news is that Aly, the lovely bride, is setting up shop in a new apartment that doesn't have internet just yet. The good news is that I already had some pictures from her and I found a GREAT step-by-step to coordinate. To go along with the pictures, I...

Chic, Down Home Wedding, IV

I mentioned earlier that the person that actually sent us today's wedding was the brides cute sister, Emily. Well, Emily also just happens to be the talent behind all of the paper goods that she sells through her super cute Etsy shop, Frenchie & Flea!

So...thank you so very much to Emily for sharing her sister's recent wedding with us. And to adding...

Chic, Down Home Wedding, III

We are back with some seriously great details from today's featured wedding. It's home grown, with almost everything being crafted by the bride, friends and family. It's chic, as she just happens to be a graphic designer so completely understands color, texture and design. It's total charm. Total charm.

This is such a cute wedding. It's one of those weddings that, if you are lucky enough to be a guest, you always remember. Details galore, charming handmade touches, a bride and groom that literally glow.

Chic, Down Home Wedding

Today's first wedding is total charm. The bride's big sister actually submitted it to Style Me Pretty, which is so super cute, as she was so blown away by the chic, DIY touches and charming home-grown feel that the gorgeous bride and groom infused.  Held in Spanish Oaks Ranch in Santa Margarita, CA, you guys are going to love this one!

Giveaway by Sarah Drake!

We have a REALLY fun, totally fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants giveaway for you guys. Sarah Drake, one of my favorite invitation designers, is looking for one lucky bride to help her with a brand new invitation design...called, "love letters."

Before we unveil the invitation, I wanted to share some of the history behind this invitation. The inspiration with a little movie called Harold and Maude.

A Modern, Traditional Wedding, IV

So, the best part about today's featured affair (aside from the sheer fabulousness of the whole thing) was the details. The perfect little touches that Audra and Teddy infused into their day, most of which Audra crafted completely on her own! photography by Kat Netzler and Brian Cummings From the bride... For programs, I wanted something simple, but also in the same style as my invitations (below). Inserted inside was a confetti...

A Modern, Traditional Wedding, III

There is so much to love about today's wedding feature. It's gorgeous. It's filled to the brim with details. Perfect details. And it's HUGELY reflective of the bride and groom. It's exactly what I look for when choosing a wedding to feature on SMP. It helps that the bride was a little SMP obsessed (her words not mine), which I love.

A Modern, Traditional Wedding, II

This wedding is all about the chic. Being an SMP reader, the gorgeous bride pored herself into the details, making sure every element was thoughtfully designed and that there were unexpected touches all along the way. She designed a wedding that was as stylish as it was personal...fulfilling my every SMP dream to perfection!

A Modern, Traditional Wedding

Okay! Today's wedding feature is awesome. It's a little bit modern, a little bit traditional....a lot gorgeous. It actually reminds me a little bit of Kathleen's of Twig + Thistle's wedding that we featured a while back, with modern styling and details that will make you completely and totally swoon.

A Modern, Traditional Wedding Sneak Peek

With yesterday's little piece of heaven, it's hard to find a wedding that can follow the genius that is Gloria Wong and Lisa Lefkowitz. So rather than compete, I thought I'd share one that is so completely different...it's the perfect balance of chic, contemporary style with timeless, traditional touches. It's a loft space meets warmth and intimacy.

I am still putting the...

I heart Oslo Press. In a BIG way. Their work is undeniably innovative, with invitations that combine rich wood veneer and ultra-gorgeous papers. Their designs are simple, elegant and completely timeless. In a nutshell, they are just an awesome design house.

And lucky, lucky us! The amazing designers behind the brand are gifting one lucky reader 100 engraved wood place cards/escort cards or favor tags.

Vintage, Shabby Chic Wedding Shoot, IV

This is my favorite group of pictures from the series. Not sure why...I think it's the awesome pops of pink paired with the dark suit. The AMAZING flowers that Nancy Liu Chin designed. The photography by Lisa Lefkowitz that is literally making my mouth water. Or maybe the picture perfect styling by Gloria Wong.

Vintage, Shabby Chic Wedding Shoot, III

I knew you guys would LOVE this wedding shoot. Captured by the oh-so-fabulous Lisa Lefkowitz and styled by the forever talented Gloria Wong, this wedding is total dreaminess. Every detail was thoughtfully designed, every element was perfectly executed. It's hard not to wish you were standing right in the middle of it, spinning around, soaking up every last bit of it.

Vintage, Shabby Chic Wedding Shoot, II

I have to admit, looking at weddings day in and day out is both a curse and a blessing. My bar for what is fabulous has been raised considerably and I've become a bit of a wedding snob. Well, a total wedding snob if I'm being honest. I love all different styles of weddings...$5,000 backyard affairs and $50,000 uber-chic soirees...as long as the details are spot on beautiful.

And it seriously doesn't get any better than this wedding shoot that the hugely talented...

Vintage, Shabby Chic Wedding Shoot

I really have no words for today's first wedding feature. It's the definition of all things pretty. The definition of perfection. We saw a little sneaky peek of it when we featured the amazing vignette by Andrew Hsu (which was a huge hit) but now we have the photographs that the incredibly talented Lisa Lefkowitz shot. The shoot was for Brides Northern California and you'll be able...

Calling All Super Stylish Brides!

Over the past 6 months or so, we've been working SO hard on designing a completely awesome, completely pretty social network made exclusively for SMP brides, vendors and wedding junkies. There were days when I literally thought it would never be done, that it would never get to the point where I could give it the SMP seal of approval.

BUT, that day has come! I am thrilled to tell you that we are just about ready to launch the Style Circle...a chic, style savvy network for the...
