San Francisco Anniversary Session from Anna Wu Photography

Confession time. I've spent an embarrassing amount of time this morning poring over this gallery of super sweet images from Anna Wu Photography. It's true, and I'm not the slightest bit embarrassed by it. Because this couple? They are as cute as they come, and when you add a pup and the fabulous city of San Francisco to the mix - I simply have to surrender to all...

New York City Wedding from Rebecca Hansen Weddings

There is something incredibly magical about a wedding in the middle of New York City that is blanketed by a forrest of trees. It has that whole secret garden effect which is about as lush and romantic as you can get. So starting with a dream wedding venue and then layering in amazing vendors like The Designer's Co-op who added to all the greenery with the prettiest shades of blue florals + ...

Alexandra Kaehlers Pink & Black Bedroom

Though it's usually the room in which we spend the majority of our life, funnily enough, ones bedroom is more often than not a complete afterthought when it comes to interior design (mine is definitely no exception!) And if Alexandra's gorgeous bedroom is any indication of how great it really could (and should!) be, then I think we all need to take a stand. From here on out, no more bedroom neglection! It's time we take a cue from this...

Chesapeake Bay Wedding from tPoz Photography + Jewel Hair Design

I love that this couple did not go the traditional autumn wedding way, but instead, showcased the beauty of the fall colors with a complimentary lavender. Capital LOVE. They dressed up the already fab Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in a way that totally surprised me, but absolutely moved me to clasped, giddy hands under my chin. Photographed by tPoz Photography (with our LBBer...

Newport Beach Wedding from Ashlee Raubach

So Cal weddings are one-of-a-kind. With the sand and the sun and those ever-so-stylish brides, they're the affairs that take me to a place of blogging bliss. But behind the pretty are teams of top notch vendors making it look all so easy. Take these Newport Beach nuptials, for example. With creative talents like Nicole Davis Design and Twig and Twine on board, the end...

Behind the Scenes with Good Company

Before we launched Living we had a little blog called Backstage. It's still there if you want to check it out, we just don't always update it. But in a nutshell, it was about the business behind SMP, the little nuggets of lessons learned that helped us take stock and helped other small businesses learn from what worked and didn't work. And for many insiders, backstage was their go-to. So today, we're hearkening the days on...

The Thomas Estate Wedding from Carlie Statsky Photography

Adorable duos and adorable weddings?  We love them.  Which is why this gorgeous Thomas Estate affair is like the perfect way to start off our week here on SMP California.  Because not only is this pretty little affair chock-full of adorability (it soooo is), it's also boasting some of the sweetest details you will ever see. I'm talking a candy + donut bar (YES), an ice cream truck (!) and some crazy beautiful florals from ...

St-Germain Signature Cocktail Inspired by a Seaside Affair

We're back for the second stop on our cocktail adventure with St-Germain, who not only makes one of the most scrumptious liqueurs on the planet, but is now also crafting customized cocktails to fit your wedding day style. Which means they are taking the guess work out of the cocktail hour and leaving the fun part (all that beverage sipping) up to you and your happy, happy guests. We've already delved into the yummy...

Austin Wedding at Hummingbird House from Alea Moore Photography

When an Austin wedding pops up in our inbox, I can't help but drop everything and devour it.  Because there is something about that Texas city (and its people) that just seem to produce the most stylish of fêtes. My point is proven in the prettiest of ways with this wedding captured by Alea Moore Photography. It mixes tradition and trends in the most fabulous of ways, and the lovely of this Austin affair all unfolds...

Maui Wedding at the Four Seasons from Joanna Tano Photography

Let's face it - we've all dreamt of running off to Maui to say "I do" to the one we love with the beautiful ocean waves dancing in the background.  I mean, if you love weddings (and I know you do), the thought has crossed your mind a time or two.  And since Maui is kind of made for marrying, this stunning affair captured by Joanna Tano is (obviously) a serious bundle of perfection.  It's breathtaking scenery meets beautiful blooms from...

Douglasville Wedding at Foxhall Resort from Gracie Blue Photography

I absolutely adore Brides these days. Why, you ask? Well there are many reasons (obviously), but with this Bride, it's her effortless elegance. It's her gorgeous flowing mane mixed with a gown worthy of the most sophisticated occasions. It's her "hair down" approach to her gorgeous day done in such a way that style seems to seep from every detail. It's image after gorgeous image of pure perfection captured by Gracie Blue Photography, and...

Seaside Rhode Island Wedding from Raquel Reis Photography

Little Compton, Rhode Island is a magical place. It's a pretty little secret tucked away in the smallest of states, but if you are lucky enough to take a trip there, you'll know immediately why getting married here was this Bride's childhood dream. With miles and miles of sea views, a town that embodies that old New England feel that makes me weak in the knees, and gorgeous images from Raquel Reis Photography? It goes without saying this...

Minneapolis Wedding from Brandon Werth Photography and Lemon + Lavender

Sometimes we read the bride's story and just know. Know she and her husband were like two puzzle pieces made for each other. A perfect fit. And then it's a race to get to the images to see how perfectly their wedding complimented them. This was one of those weddings. Every detail from the invites (courtesy of Lemon + Lavender) to the fab florals from Munster Rose to the parting...

Truth be told, this Montauk wedding has officially made my Monday morning. Marked with a sense of understated elegance and impeccable style, it's the kind of modern Hamptons affair that makes my heart feel a little fuller thanks to flawless planning on the part of Loli EventsTrent Bailey sent over...

Six Day Old Twins from Bryce Covey

My heart? It has officially melted. Because not only do we have one brand spankin' new baby to share with the world, we have two. Double the new baby smell. Double the teeny tiny toes. Double the heart melting, aww inducing, so sweet it hurts adorableness that six day old twins brings. If I wasn't completely jealous of Bryce Covey's life behind the lens before, you can certainly bet I am now. Capturing brand new babies is a career I...

New York City Engagement Session from Sasithon Photography

You know what I seriously adore?  At-home engagement sessions.  They're all at once cozy and beautiful, with a little sneak peak into the lives of a Mr. and Mrs. who are beyond excited to get married.  That's perfection in my book.  And when that at-home engagement session is the result of a rainy NYC day (like this darling shoot captured by Sasithon Photography), even better.  Because what's more intimate or gorgeous than two...

California Wedding Film from Hoo Films

This morning we have a really sweet story for you. The wedding you are about to see was one that was very intimate, only the couples' parents in attendance. After the big question, they started planning a big day. As it got bigger and bigger, they realized the most important thing was just to be married at the end of the day - and that they did. They cancelled their big wedding, and opted for a super romantic, smaller one with big meaning. Lucky for the rest of us...
