Yellow Polka Dot Dress From Pezz Photo

Right around Christmas, I thought it would be fun to gather some award winning photos from our Little Black Book photographers. Amy Pezzicara sent in an image from...

Pantone Wedding Guide by Dessy

There are only a few things that I have carried from house to house to house. My grandfather's paintings, my husband, a chandelier that I bought at a flea market in San Francisco and my Pantone color guides. Sounds ridiculous to carry little Pantone swatch books from Houston to San Fran to Boston, but what can I tell you. I love them. They've helped me find the perfect wall color, the perfect paper color for our Christmas cards, the perfect hue for SMP's color palette. And now, they can help...

Well, let me just sweeten the pot and tell you that the hosts of the giveaway are none other than the cute, cute girls at Hello! Lucky...one of our all time favorite stationery brands.

Vintage Chic Wedding Shoot by Jessica Claire

I know that you guys are craving some really special real weddings more than anything, but I HAD to put up this photoshoot that Jessica Claire sent my way. Ever since we debuted Jessica's wedding, I have become totally enamored with everything she does and when I heard that she had partnered up with...

Santa Monica Wedding with Charm

My husband, Tait, has this terrible problem of being unable to keep a surprise a secret. On my birthday, he wakes me up at the crack of dawn because he's been lying awake for hours thinking about my gift. If you ever want to ruin a surprise party, tell Tait. He gets so excited, he simply can't hold it in. So you could definitely say that I am pulling a "Tait" with this next wedding. Although we had this slated as our picture perfect Valentine's Day wedding...I fell so in love with it, I just...

Mother Of The Bride ~ Our Hats Off To All Of You!

Do all of you know that I'm Abby's mom? And that all this wedding love started many (many) years ago when Abby's oldest sister announced her engagement? Although there are twelve years difference in their ages, Abby & her two sisters' weddings each ... were the best times of my life.  Even after raising my daughters, planning their weddings with them brought a new sense of intimacy and an even deeper friendship with each of them.

The reason I mention this is because I got the...

Michigan Wedding at the Beach, II

Isn't it wonderful to show a warm, breezy beach wedding in the middle of January?  Oh how I long for anything but the slushy, gray, snowy roads that grace my morning drives.  There is something  just so delightful about this wedding.  Each intimate detail, each warm color, that amazing cake! My biased favorite would have to be the letterpress printed four page program that doubled as a fan for warm guests.  Yet I think my favorite part is how the wedding is such a genuine reflection of...

Michigan Wedding at the Beach

Meet Andrea. She is the voice behind Gwyneth Paige and is the newest SMP writer. And she is so freaking cute. I want to blab on and on about her but since she has SUCH a pretty wedding to share with you today, I'll let her take the reigns.

It took me a while to get my first sentence out as all I could type was "Oh my gosh I am blogging for Style Me Pretty--right now! Ahhhhhh!" Seriously, I typed that exact sentence about three times before moving on to writing about...

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We are starting off this week on a high note with a giveaway by Paloma's Nest.

Caroline, the amazing designer behind the brand, has pulled together a set of 10 bowls that she'd like to gift to one very lucky Style Me Pretty reader. PERFECT for bridesmaids gifts.

To enter, all you have to do...

From Inspiration to Reality: The Design, III

Some of you might not know this, I definitely didn't when I started SMP, that photoshoots like these are actually pretty common for photographers and event designers. Often they are held as workshops to teach up and comers how to shoot weddings and details. Other times they are done to build portfolios and provide a creative outlet for the vendors involved. So for us, it seemed only natural to get our readers involved.

And today's From Inspiration to Reality was put together by some...

From Inspiration to Reality: The Design, II

When we first started our From Inspiration to Reality feature, we didn't really know how, when or frankly IF the concept would find its big girl pants and grow into something great. Well, I think that we can officially say it has. I have no idea how these vendors (like today's photographer Jessamyn Harris and designer Jess Flood) come up with such...

Okay, kids. Have a seat. Grab the coffee. Kick up your feet. This little number deserves your full and committed attention. The From Inspiration to Reality team that put together today's latest piece of goodness has also been responsible for some of our...

Mexico Wedding with Personality II

If you are still swooning over the emerald beauty, fear not. I have a ton more eye candy for you. This wedding is bursting at the seams with personality and the colors; oh the colors. I am almost ready to book a ticket to Mexico on the spot. Suzie Qof Q Weddings did such an amazing job of capturing the essence of this day. The pictures really need no introduction.

A few more details about the big day:

Mexico Wedding with Personality

SO excited to introduce Erin to you. Erin is the voice behind one of my all time favorite blogs (which you have to check out if you don't already obsess over it) Erin Ever After. It's this great little fairy tale of goodness where she calls things "lovelies" and "pretties" and uses words like "liggity love, love, lovin." So you know she is a girl after my own heart. Erin is our newest contributor and she is coming out of the...

Napa Valley Wedding by Jose Villa, IV

Okay, if you aren't already sitting down...you probably should be. I've saved the best of today's wedding for last. The reception tables. These reception tables are quite possibly the most beautiful tables I've ever seen in my entire life and have completely inspired me to start collecting chandeliers as a hobby.  A chandelier in every room of my house, maybe two. My poor husband.

Jose Villa, bless you for sending me a wedding...

Napa Valley Wedding by Jose Villa, III

So, if obsession equals Jose Villa. It's pretty clear that this wedding is obsession taken to an entirely new level. The best part though, is that the bride used Style Me Pretty as inspiration during her planning process. I know, shameless. I just had to get that little piece of ego out the door and let's be serious...it's probably not the "best part." The flowers, the chandeliers, the ridiculous photographs all qualify for that title.

Napa Valley Wedding by Jose Villa, II

I was at a wedding event this past weekend and one of the keynote speakers said "I would so much rather see a couple put their money towards just a few hours with a great photographer, than settle on a photographer that they don't love." I could not have said it better myself. The keepsakes that a great photographer can provide are priceless. Which of course is exactly why I love to brag about Jose Villa so much. His photographs are...
