Thank you so very much to the lovely Catherine and Ken for sharing their incredibly beautiful day with us. I love the thought, the energy and the pretty that you infused into each and every detail. And to Karen Wise for continuing to excite and inspire me!

We are both lovers of jazz and found an awesome band that played classic jazz hits during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.  I walked down the aisle to Miles Davis’ “It Never Entered My Mind.”  We couldn’t decide on a song for the first dance for the longest time and Ken insisted that he pick it.  I was very hesitant at first, but I decided to trust him because the wedding was only 2 days away.  After our welcome speech to our guests, he had three young guests join us on the dance floor and read to everyone his version of our fairy tale.  Our first dance was “Someday My Prince Will Come” and also by Miles Davis.  He really took me by surprise and I couldn’t stop crying (some of our guests too).  So it really did feel like a fairy tale…

SWOON. Well, the gorgeousness doesn’t end here. I have saved some of the VERY best, absolutely gorgeous, ridiculously lovely details for our Style Circle Details Feature. It’s a shameless way to get you guys to visit our new social network, I admit. BUT, it’s also the place that is all about wedding style so it just made sense.

We are going to be doing a Look For Less feature over there this afternoon too, where we are featuring tips and ideas to make this look come alive on a budget!
