Jewelry and Gifts by Lisa Leonard Designs

We love fun, personalized details in a wedding. Whether its with the décor or the wardrobe, it's just the bee’s knees when you can look at a wedding and see that couple’s personality splashed all over different aspects of the day. Well the super talented Lisa Leonard from Lisa Leonard Design… loves customized details just as much as we do.  Armed with a love of making jewelry and the knowledge that a...

Wrap It Up Pretty Little Black Book!

Well LBBers, another week of show-stopping flowers, drop-dead-gorgeous brides, and details, steal-worthy, drool-worthy details has zoomed right by. Can you believe it's already Friday? Hopefully you enjoy your long weekend, and to ensure that happens, we'll be back Monday just as usual. So you can sneak us in between hot dogs and swimming (in that 30 minute window your mother always warned you about). But before we break for a weekend of barbeques and bocce ball, we've got a sweet engagement...

Wrap It Up Pretty Texas!

Can you believe SMP Texas has been around for an entire month? So fab. We have loved every minute of it and thought it just made sense to wrap up each pretty week Texas style. So each Friday evening, before you sign off for the weekend, we'll send you off SMP Texas style. And really, is there a better way to ride off into the weekend? Today we are riding off in an airstream trailer via this succulent-filled shoot shot by ...

Wrap It Up Pretty Florida!

In the words of 1313 Photography who shot this adorable engagement session, "this couple is stinkin' cute".  We should all go out and live it up Miami-style over the holiday weekend and this fun-loving couple will be an inspiration to fill our days with love and laughter.  We've had a fun week over here at the Florida blog and it's only going to get better.  Have a smile-filled weekend and we'll see you bright and early on Monday...

Wrap It Up Pretty California!

I have a confession to make.  I have a little girl crush on Los Angeles photographer Adrienne Gunde or at least on her photography.  And this adorable day-after session just enhances my feelings of adoration.  We've been cooing over so many delightful California moments like this all week and next week we'll be back in a big way.  Anyone else spending the holiday weekend under the stars?  Or around the barbeque?  Have an...

Wrap It Up Pretty New York!

Hello New York! Now that we have these pretty local blogs, we thought it would be a good idea to localize the wrap up as well. It just makes sense. Because having all the week's pretty in one little happy post just makes life easier and we are all about that. As I send you off into one of my favorite holiday weekends, the unofficial start of summer, I thought I would leave you with an officially fabulous NYC elopement from ...

Austin Wedding by The Nichols

I have a confession. After four years and over 5,000 real weddings, I am officially a color convert. Don't get me wrong...I'd still saturate my world in white if I didn't have two very messy little kids. But when it comes to weddings, especially those that glisten in the gorgeous Texas sun, I kind of love me some color. Bright pops of gorgeous color. Especially when it's photographed by the crazy talented duo The Nichols. And this...

Outdoor Leesburg Wedding at Oatlands Plantation

Okay grooms, listen up. We don't usually hear a lot from you (even though we'd love to!) but we have heard our brides commenting on our pink weddings over and over. They seem to wish and hope and pray that you will be down with the whole pretty in pink feel for the big day. It can totally be done tastefully and can look fantastic - like this Virginia plantation wedding, sent to us from MyDeejay.

California Wedding from Gertrude & Mabel Photography

Spring is here, and that means summer is knock, knock, knocking on the door next. If there were a wedding that could completely embody a warm, sunny, summer day, this would be it. The yellow and red palette mixed with the big sunflowers and sweet little ring bearer and flower girl are just as wonderful as the warm sun on your face. Gertrude & Mabel Photography captured the light, the love, and the sweetness of this California...

Urban Rustic-Chic Photo Shoot by Enchanted Dream Weddings & Affairs

Perhaps it's because I'm a new, very hungry vegan and all this cheese looks delicious. Or perhaps it's because the styling by Enchanted Dream Weddings and Affairs is ah-maz-ing. But whatever the reason, all I know is that I want to jump into my computer screen and LIVE in this photo shoot! I can see myself now, sitting at that fabulous reclaimed table, drinking the velvety red wine, and eating hunks upon hunks of cheese...

Delray Beach Wedding by Alexi Shields Photography

A tandem bicycle is the perfect inspiration for a wedding and symbol for the planning process.  I'm sure it takes some coordination and teamwork to get one of those bad boys rolling but once you do it's a whole lot of fun.  What makes this Delray Beach bicycle-inspired wedding by Alexi Shields Photography even more special is that there was so much meaning and care taken in choosing the theme.  Plus I love that adorable cake topper...

Catskill Mountains Wedding by 1. Art Beauty Life : Jenny Ebert Photography

I am SO glad I am not alone in my love for stripes. If you put stripes on a skirt, purse, wall, or really any inanimate object I am automatically smitten. This lovely bride, with fabulous taste I might add, has the same affinity for all things striped and decided to make it a central design theme for their wedding - and for that alone, I love her. This creative duo joined forces and DIY-ed the heck out of this affair, and you can see all of the fabulousness captured by...

Sunflowers and cowboys boots. Changing autumn colors and tables of cupcakes. Groucho glasses. And a couple with a serious sense of style.
