We’re really excited about the next couple of weddings. For one, they’re GORGEOUS. But more exciting, they have been documented by a few new faces to SMP! We’ve asked a couple of our favorite bloggers to guest blog for us and I couldn’t be more thrilled about the additions. So, without further ado, meet Emilia Jane…the absolutely, positively adorable voice behind the blog Sweet Emilia Jane!

This wedding by Cameron Ingalls Photography is chock full of the sweetest little details and a whole lot of heart.  With rich textures, a stunning venue on the central California coast and plenty of personal touches, it is the perfect blend of feminine chic and rustic casual elegance.  Seriously, can you go wrong with ruffles, feathers and ponies?  And that Holly Stalder dress?  Heaven.  Beyond the fabulous details, I love that this creative couple was super earth friendly using local vendors and serving their favorite local food.  Check out the full gallery for even more; you won’t want to miss a thing! xoxo, Emilia Jane

From the bride, Ellie:

I searched wedding blogs – especially Style Me Pretty and Green Wedding Shoes – to get inspiration. We didn’t really have wedding colors or a theme. Rather, I looked for fabrics, flowers, and other décor with texture and tried to stick to a muted color pallet that would complement the beauty of our location rather than distract from it.

Much to my delight, I found tons of creative and non-traditional ideas to borrow online. For example, we used painter’s drop clothes for the table linens, cut burlap for the table runners, automotive shop towels for napkins and bathroom hand towels, rocks for escort “cards”, and succulents to triple as table décor/name tags/favors. We didn’t want a guest book that would be read once and stored on shelf so, instead, we asked guests to sign their names on a pair of vintage wooden skis that we could then hang in our house. Not only did this incorporate our love of skiing but we are reminded of all the wonderful friends and family that helped us celebrate our marriage every time we walk by them.

Our wedding really came together with the help of our wonderful and talented family and friends. We had so much help bringing our wedding together. Not only could we have not done it without help of friends and family but working with them made the process all the better!
