Winery Wedding with Organic Elegance

When I visited Sonoma for the first time nearly ten years ago, you would have thought I was looking at the eighth wonder of the world. I was so taken aback by the rustic, understated elegance, by the total, unabashed beauty of the area, you could have knocked me over with a feather. So although I know we feature a lot of wine country weddings, each one is incredibly beautiful and I honestly can't help but share the goodness with you. And this wine country wedding is no exception. Photographed...

Indiana Wedding

We love a short wedding dress, and this one does not disappoint.  The bride found this sweet little BCBG dress on eBay for just $110...SCORE!  Even though the bride says that the "one word to sum up the plan for our wedding would be budget", they certainly did not scrimp on style.  They infused their personalities throughout (check out the adorable mad libs below) and handmade all the papergoods themselves.  We are swooning over their creative style and are certain you will soon be too.

From Chicago With Love ~ Gourmet Invitations

This is a super-gorgeous wedding that was sent to us by our great friend, Tifany at Gourmet Invitations. Classic. Elegant. It's a true testament to knowing what you love ... knowing what is most important to you on your wedding day ... and going to town with it!

First, ~ the dress!
I knew my “perfect dress” had to be lace, and that once I found it, we’d design everything else...

Wedding Inspiration by Justin & Mary Marantz

Little known tidbit. A lot of the inspiration shoots that we feature come from photography workshops. Where some of the best photographers in the world essentially re-create a wedding so that they can impart their words of wedding wisdom to up and comers. It's pretty genius if you ask me. Photographers get to learn how to snap all of the little details that make a wedding so swoon worthy...and WE get to eat up all of the eye candy! Well, some of the best photography workshops come from the...

Nestldown Wedding by Meg Perotti and MAP Events

My favorite sorts of weddings are those that don't follow any kind of style rules. Those weddings that layer on the personality and bring in unexpected, fun elements that totally reflect the bride and groom's personality. Which is pretty much exactly what this next gorgeous couple did (and don't you think the bride looks like Leighton Meester?). It's a little bit rustic, a little bit glam, a little bit bohemian and a little bit victorian...and totally, completely, ridiculously lovely.

Napa Valley Wedding by Rebecca Feeney of Custom Event Group

This wedding is gorgeous. Flat. out. gorgeous. And it's a bit of a departure from some of the weddings that we've been featuring lately...with a rich, warm palette and a sense of sophistication that literally gave me butterflies. It's the twinkle lights, the ceramic vessels, the rustic and yet unbelievably elegant florals, the ridiculously gorgeous bride in her ridiculously gorgeous gown...it's the layer upon layer of style that make this wedding, designed by the fabulous Rebecca Feeney of...

Wedding Anniversary Photoshoot

Guess what today is. It's my five year wedding anniversary with my husband, Tait. You guys might know him as the geeky but cute genius behind SMP. We met 9 years ago at a New Year's Eve party and haven't looked back since. And in those nine years we've given birth to the most beautiful baby girl Audrey, the most incredible business in Style Me Pretty and what will be the most adorable LITTLE BOY come January. I count my lucky stars every single day to have stumbled into this amazing life...

Vermont Wedding by Two Chicks Photography

I feel like there are so many brides out there that are totally and completely overwhelmed when it comes to planning their wedding. Even though I was IN the wedding industry when I planned my own, I was definitely one of those girls. I wish someone had given me permission to embrace my jeans and a t-shirt personality when it came to the design...to craft a wedding that was laid back and yet beautiful, casual and yet really special. Well, that is EXACTLY what this gorgeous bride did and the...

Austin Wedding by The Nichols

Peaches are my absolute favorite summer fruit. I literally spend the year awaiting their arrival at the farmers' market, so when I saw how Gina and Kyle incorporated fresh peaches throughout their summer wedding, my mouth was watering immediately. Gina, the bride, works for Little Black Book member 2 Dine 4 Fine Catering in Austin, so I knew right away that the...

Wedding Shoes by Piperlime

I have a HUGE confession. Probably one that my now husband shouldn't read. But, it's a happy ending so I figured what the hell. When I got my engagement ring (6 years ago...gasp), I wasn't so sure about it. It was a yellow gold and I had my heart set on a white gold or even better...a platinum ring. But upon closer inspection, I realized that I was staring down at a 1920's Antique Tiffany diamond ring. Yep, I KNOW. Well, really seeing the beauty in that changed my whole gold perspective. I am...
