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...

Barn Wedding From Orchard Cove Photography

Abby always teases me because I seem to have a 'thing' for our Connecticut LBB photographers ... what can I say? They're great and they send us great stuff!

Save the Date Handkerchiefs!

One of our readers, Rachel, sent me THE cutest pictures of her handkerchief save the dates and I had to share. Especially since it goes with our shabby chic theme for the day. Here's how she did it! I'd previously seen handkerchiefs and other bits of fabric printed on and really liked the idea of texture. I also wanted to create a keepsake. I ended up scouring ebay for about a month, collecting vintage handkerchiefs. In the meantime, I created a vintage-y layout using our silhouetted...

An Elegant, Shabby Chic Wedding, III

Love, love, love today's real wedding. There is something so sweet, so utterly charming about this little soiree. Perfect details, a beautiful venue (the groom's parents' house...lucky!) and a style that is all together gorgeous. I am so glad that the bride's cute best friend emailed us!

An Elegant, Shabby Chic Wedding, III

This wedding makes me really happy. First of all, the bride's best friend sent it to us because she knows how much the bride loves SMP. Cute. Second, it is SO ME. I swear, I could pick up some of these decorations and plop them in my house. It's a little shabby chic, totally elegant, with details that will make any girl swoon.

Oh and a quick little note about the bridesmaids dresses...they were found at Twirl Boutique in...

Eco-Friendly Wedding In Florida

We featured McKenzie and Todd's wedding earlier today and seem to have sparked off a bit of a controversy that we'd like to lay to rest!

McKenzie and Todd wanted a small intimate wedding and they had a budget of $20,000. {We're not saying they had a low budget wedding. We're saying they had a budget of $20,000.) They approached First Coast Weddings and Events to help them orchestrate...

An Elegant, Shabby Chic Wedding, II

Okay! On to the wedding...the ridiculously beautiful wedding. For those of you that wonder how I choose weddings to feature on SMP, this is a great example. I love to see brides crafting inspiration boards that ultimately reflect the wedding that they design. I love perfect details more than anything else. I love a sense of personality and style and I love to see a bride and groom that are head over heels for each other.

This one is all that...and so much more.

An Elegant, Shabby Chic Wedding

We have a really cute morning feature for you that has me smiling from ear to ear. Jenn, the bride in today's first real wedding fell in love with SMP while planning her day and as a gift to her, Jenn's best friend has asked us to do a full feature on it. When I saw how absolutely gorgeous the wedding was, it was a no brainer!

Before we get to the wedding itself, I thought that I would share one of the inspiration boards that she crafted!

Anguilla Wedding by Grazier Photography, IV

Right when I started my blog, my girlfriend Jill sent me pictures from her girlfriend's recent wedding. The couple had rented out an island to host their affair (seriously) and the bride, in a HUGE/PERFECT/COMPLETELY AMAZING ballgown was brought up to the dock by a canoe, where her groom waited patiently in his tux. It was beyond perfect, beyond gorgeous.

And ever since I laid eyes on that wedding, I've had this thing for fancy, formal affairs on the beach. A tuxedo. A...
