WIUP + Hair Flower Inspiration + Winners!

Hair inspiration is one of those things we can never get enough of. And when we're talking wedding hair? Let's just say we could go on for hours. So the minute Cecelina Photography and The Vintage Floral Design Co. sent us this hair flower how-to, we jumped at the chance to share the goods. With all the tips and tricks below, you can think of this as your ...

Wrap It Up Pretty Little Black Book!

Maybe it's because I'm from Detroit, which can be a heartbreaking display of beautiful decay these days, but abandoned buildings, especially those which you can feel the way they used to be, are so captivating to me. My imagination runs wild picturing cathedrals like this in their heyday. Plus the juxtaposition between the beautiful, young couple and the old, dilapidated building is just beyond words. So as we send you off into your weekend, I hope you take a few extra moments to visit the...

La Jolla Wedding from Studio Castillero

Studio Castillero takes images that are so romantic and dreamy. The image could literally be of a dirt patch and through their lens, it's transformed into a beautiful, beautiful thing. Of course, this Darlington House wedding is a far cry from a dirt patch. It's an all white summer-scape with just the right amount of navy blue to make a glamorous pop. And it's...

Engagement Party from Jette Momant PR & Events

This is a love story. A celebration. A gorgeous, inspired party that I have been obsessing over since the moment I first saw it. It's glowy and romantic and a total blueprint for what a truly memorable party looks - and feels - like. Designed by the bride, who also happens to be an event planner, with photographs by She N He Photography, this little celebration with laughter...

Dominican Republic Wedding from Ethan Yang Photography

I think every bride and groom come to a point in their planning where they want to just whisk everyone away to a tropical locale and tie the knot with the sound of the water nearby, but, let's face it, it doesn't happen as often as the ballroom soiree. So when it does happen, holy moly do we get excited. A beautiful wedding and a fab vacation all in one (and those just so happen to be two of our favorite things). It doesn't get any better, especially when...

Netherlands Photo Shoot from Anouschka Rokebrand + Jill La Fleur

We can always count on Jill La Fleur to bring us a big dose of pretty inspiration. She's a heavy hitter in the design department and her weddings and photo shoots prove that time and again. This time, those skills are showcased in an uber romantic, stylized shoot full of blush and ivory and a beautiful European flair. She teamed up with a talented group of vendors including florals by ...

When Signature Events Consulting + Design sent over this festive birthday celebration, I immediately decided that my new favorite color combo was green, gold, black + ivory. Although I've loved seeing Pantone's color of the year all over blog land, I have never found the...

SO very much has happened and we're taking a quick wedding break to highlight our fave moments from the week. And whether you're updating that summer wardrobe or have been bitten by the travel bug these features, my dear, are for you. So...

Old Town Fillmore E-Session from LMarie Photography

A hidden little gem of a town always makes for the most amazing e-sessions... especially when that hidden little gem of a town boasts breathtaking citrus and avocado groves, antique trains and a Main Street straight from one seriously heartwarming movie.  And when you add in an adorable duo like these two cuties (seriously) and the talented LMarie Photography to snap up all of the pretty, it's the perfect way to jump start your Friday.

There is DIY, and then theres is a wedding like this one. A wedding where DIY is done in such a way that completely knocks your socks off, where every image is pin-able and where crafty goes chic. Which is why my hat goes off to this lovely Bride, her wedding is DIY done oh so right, and thanks to the gorgeous images from Milk Photography we get to soak up every last second right here in...

Ontario Engagement Film from Wilhelm Wedding Cinema

I've seen a lot of creative proposals in my day, but building a cabin for your special someone (using salvaged materials, reclaimed wood, and sheep's wool)?  Awesome.  Soooo very, very awesome, in fact, that this sweet film will leave you smiling, crying and gasping out loud from the sheer joy + romance of it all.  It's the amazing story of true love, dedication and beauty, all captured wonderfully by Wilhelm Wedding Cinema.  So...

Cantigny Park Engagement Shoot from Autumn and Melinda Photography

Okay... so I am totally geeking out right now, but these two sweeties?  They happen to have the same names as two of my all-time favorite literary characters (Rachel + Dexter), so, yeah.  I am pretty happy. Also making me happy?  Their beyond beautiful engagement session captured by Autumn and Melinda Photography, which is one serious, serious love-fest filled with tulips, sunny skies and image after image of one of the cutest...

Austin Wedding from Shannon Cunningham Photography + BZ Events

Reading the description from a Bride of her big day never will get old to me. It's just impossible. Each time as I work my way from beginning to end, I feel a grin forming on my face, and for a moment I feel like that lovely lady is one of my besties. Particularly when the story and Bride is as sweet as this one. With her a proposal that included her Grandmother's wedding ring, and a wedding that was perfect in every way thanks to the help of the ones she loved most, this wedding captured by ...

Savannah, Georgia Wedding from LeeAnn Ritch Photography

There's a little somethin' special about a Southern wedding that can't be duplicated elsewhere and that somethin' special is called "Southern Charm."  It's a downright prettiness that exudes from every single wedding we feature - and the exact reason these two sweeties chose the breathtaking city of Savannah for their destination soiree.  A soiree that was chock-full of Southern loveliness, from the lush florals from A to Zinnias to the...

South County Museum Wedding from Mandy Mayberry Photography

SMPers, I am going to ask you all to sit down for a moment. Put that to-do list aside. Cozy up real close to your computer screen. Because this beauty from the beyond talented Mandy Mayberry is a game changer. Each image of this Rhode Island beauty brings pretty to an entirely new level, and its a level I would happily spend the rest of my days. It's prettiness defined, and you can see it's all waiting for you...

Lancaster, Pennsylvania Wedding from Brooke Courtney Photography

Let's talk about DIY for a minute. It's a great way to save a little money when it comes to your wedding, so you can allocate those funds to something you can't do yourself. But it's also an amazing display of love. This bride made just about everything for her wedding. So on the big day, not only were she and her betrothed displaying their love to everyone, but she showed her friends and family ones just how much they meant to her by providing a decor so personal and heartfelt. Every pretty...

Bronx Wedding from Brklyn View Photography

With a total sense of serenity and seclusion, you'd never, ever guess this gorgeous wedding was set in the center of the Bronx. Stone Mill at the New York Botanical Garden, to be exact. And while you know we're always up  for a good city wedding, there's something so gosh darn stunning when the urban and outdoors mix. The full gallery is where all the pretty ever-flows thanks to the captures from ...

A First Birthday Party

My daughter's first birthday was serious business. My sweet son's first birthday was $.99 margaritas at a Mexican restaurant. For us, not him clearly. Which was way more fun than organizing the petting zoo and making little labels for every last detail. But...didn't really hold the same magic as my daughter's pink wonderland. So if I had to do it over...
