Michigan Wedding, IV

Guess what! The fun isn't over yet. Sarah and Rupert actually had Matt Bass shoot a fun little film that the couple edited after the day was said and done. Yet another fabulous DIY project and one that you know they will love for the rest of their life.

Michigan Wedding, III

This is a DIY wedding dream come true (as one of our readers appropriately coined). Even better than that, it's filled to the brim with spunk, personality and total charm. Which you know I love. The bride, who happens to run a cute, cute, cute little company called Smitten Studio, went above and beyond, crafting the most perfect details a girl could ever want. And lucky for us...

Michigan Wedding, II

Here is the insane laundry list of the adorableness that the bride crafted for this perfect wedding...all of the paper goods, the table linens, the flowers (yep, the flowers), the fans/programs, the photobooth and the mustaches for the booth, the candy buffet and candy bag favors, the cake toppers, the hanging monograms, the paper funnels for confetti. This is not just a DIY bride, this is THE DIY bride. She made sure that every project that she crafted had her signature style on it, that every...

Michigan Wedding with DIY Charm From Jess + Nate Studios

You are going to DIE when you see this next wedding. It's beyond charming, beyond adorable and to top it off, the bride did basically all of the details on her own. It's a total DIY affair from top to freaking bottom and in the little areas that she didn't craft, she brought on the best vendors, the most talented group of people. Like the always awesome Jess + Nate Studios, who provided the picture perfect photography. So, while I...

San Luis Obispo Wine Trolley Wedding From Lollipop Events

As I was doing an interview for an upcoming magazine feature, I was asked what the one piece of advice I would give to all brides and grooms would be. Simple. Let your personality dictate your wedding style. So today, I thought we could take a little break from tradition and show you two weddings that didn't take themselves too seriously. Two weddings that are all about the charm, all about personality.

First up, this completely whimsical, totally original wedding that...

From Inspiration to Reality, VI


So if you're wondering why we are so obsessed with our From Inspiration to Reality feature, I thought I'd shed a little light. For one, it gives the really talented vendors in our book an opportunity to shine. To design with total creative freedom. To get back to their roots and have a day of pure fun, of pure style. Second, it gives our brides such incredible ideas that they can translate into their own wedding. Real, solid, practical ideas from color...

From Inspiration to Reality, V

If you are as obsessed as I am with the From Inspiration to Reality feature that we are doing today, you'll be really happy about this next little tidbit. Ryan Koral, owner and creative genius behind Epic Motion, was on hand to capture the entire day on film. And it's awesome. Seriously awesome. To see the whole gorgeous day unfold and really see the the creativity and thoughtfulness that went into the look is, well...pretty kick ass. I...

A few quick notes about the photography behind today's affair from Aruna...

When we were first picking out inspiration boards I think it was important to us to do something unique and bold. Then when we started to brainstorm I got really excited about all the different elements that were coming together. From the frame wall to the croquembouche (french wedding cake), I knew this was going to be amazing to photograph. The Royal...

From Inspiration to Reality, III

So. The last couple of weeks have actually been our highest traffic weeks of the entire life of Style Me Pretty. Something to be really proud of, which of course we are. But to be honest, we are mostly just thrilled to have partnered up with vendors who are helping us to generate content that gives us that traffic, like today's From Inspiration to Reality Shoot. The talent, the creativity, the ideas, the style behind this group of Michigan vendors...it's total insanity. And we feel really...

When I saw the board that our next From Inspiration to Reality team chose, I was a little excited. Okay, I was bursting at the seams. It was the first really modern, high style, totally glam board that had been chosen...

We are putting the finishing touches on our latest and greatest From Inspiration to Reality that we teased you with last week...and when I tell you that it's good. Man oh man is it good.

Charlottesville Wedding by Jen Curtis, III

On any given day, you can find me sitting on my couch dreaming up crazy and over-the-top descriptions about the weddings that we feature. The "oh-so-charmings" and "forever gorgeousness-es" just pop into my head as the only proper way to introduce a wedding and tell you just how much I love it. Well, today's wedding needs nothing more than a simple, little word. Beautiful. Sent over to us by Jen Curtis, it's the bride and groom...

Sent to us by Jen Curtis, this wedding gives me butterflies with a bride that is ALL chic and a groom that could possibly be the most adorable groom on the face of the planet. I always get a little giddy when Jen sends us one of her latest and greatest because I just know that she will have...

Charlottesville Wedding by Jen Curtis

We are kicking off the week with the prettiest, sweetest, most adorable little wedding you've ever seen. Really, it's that great. Jen Curtis, who always sends us the most incredible affairs, was the photographer behind the today's first featured wedding so you just know that I am being completely sincere when I tell you that I love this wedding. Big time. And usually, I pour all of my gushing into the bride, the details, the...

Wrap It Up Pretty

We are taking a cue from Design*Sponge's weekly wrap-up and doing a little week-in-review of our own. Brought to you by our fabulous advertising sales guru, who also happens to be planning her own super chic wedding, Ms. Libby Higgins. But before I pass the mic, here is a little sneak peek of next week's feature by Aruna B. Photography...

Bali Wedding by Leo Patrone, II

Being a wedding blogger means that I get wedding envy...A LOT. It's kind of scary how many different types of weddings I fall in love with. They are all over the map. From really organic, budget friendly affairs to total opulence and everything in between. Green with wedding envy has just become my middle name. And today, I can say with total candor, it's been taken to an entirely new level.

This wedding, shot by...

From Inspiration to Reality, II

And now, the film. I get really excited when we have a film clip to compliment any wedding or shoot that we feature. It just brings the whole day to life and you can really "feel" the energy and beauty. As a quick little reminder, here is the board that inspired our From Inspiration to Reality feature...

From Inspiration to Reality

Ever since we posted our first From Inspiration to Reality feature (which STILL needs a new name if you can think of one), we've kind of rediscovered our love of weddings and of design. It's incredible for me to see what our vendors and artists can do with such a one dimensional look at something. They are able to see the feeling, the vibe behind the board and translate that into a photo shoot filled to...
