Bridal Inspired Fashion on the Sydney Coastline

Photographer Mike Larson said it best; nothing is better than a sun-drenched photo-shoot on the cliffs of an Australian beach. Unless Danae Grace Events is on the scene, that is, to make the oh-so dreamy visions really come to life. With this pair styling and shooting, a gallery visit to see all the couture looks is an absolute MUST.

Romantic Wilson Creek Winery Wedding

A bold bride is a fabulous bride in my book. A beauty who is willing to steer away from the norm, even in subtle ways. Take this stunning lady for instance… donning a vibrant turquoise statement necklace, dressing her bridesmaids in gorg black gowns from Two Birds Bridesmaid and kicking aside heels for comfy flats. I think she has the right idea and it's just the start… there's...

DIY Balloon Arch

So this project almost killed me. Literally. We got the idea from The House that Lars Built's amazing balloon arch right here, but tweaked it a bit to tower over a table full of little kids for our State Fair Birthday Party. This project is not for the faint of heart but if you follow the well...

DIY Marquee Light-Up Cake Topper

When I told Jess - our in house DIY guru - that I wanted a cake topper that lit up like a state fair marquee for Audrey's Birthday, I expected her to tell me that I was nuts. Because why would you want a cord coming off your cake? But then I sent her a link to the cordless, battery operated, miniature LED lights and boom. An idea was born.

DIY Photo Booth Props

As a wedding and party blogger, I've seen my fair share of photo booths. But for some reason, when it's your own kid and your kids cute friends, the idea just feels right. But we wanted to update our State Fair Photo Booth with some serious SMP style. So Jess crafted these adorable (and free downloadable!) prop templates. It's photobooth chic times ten. 8.5”x11” white cardstock...

Laid Back Wedding Love at Sayulita’s Villa Amor

When the getting-ready shots include a little dip in a rooftop infinity pool, a few kick-butt yoga moves and cocktails? Well you know what follows is going to be ah-mazing. With Jonas Seaman behind the lens, DIYs made pretty by this fun-loving duo, topped off with a bit of bougainvillea and a whole lotta love, it's easy to get lost in the gorgeously relaxed vibes of this...

Whimsical Pink Wedding in Austin

When weddings like this come along, I thank my lucky stars for vendors like Bird Dog Wedding who make planning impossibly chic events look easy. They worked with one darling couple who opted for Southern style on their own terms, and Julie Cate's camera didn't miss a beat. Settle into page upon page of pin-able goodness...

Romance in the Redwoods – A Forest Wedding

This is how I imagine a fairy wedding to be – all soaring trees and a canopy of greenery with a gorgeous lace dress by Claire Pettibone plus a mini version for the flower girl and floral crowns galore. It's magical times about a million captured by ANA NYC and the prettiest peonies thrown into the mix courtesy of ...

DIY Goldfish Soap Favors

So now we're breaking down all of the DIYS for our State Fair Birthday party. I have to admit, we found this idea on Pinterest. Obviously. But really. There couldn't be a cuter, more appropriate favor. Tiny bags of goldfish surrounded by clear glycerin soap made to look exactly like the kind of prize you might win at a state fair.

Brooklyn Neighborhood Engagement Session

We see lots and lots of engagement sessions on this little ol' blog, and that's a good thing, because I adore them. I love seeing the raw love between the bride and groom-to-be, like these two snapped up by Pezz Photo, lovin' in their very own neighborhood. Get a taste of their sweet love...

Modern State Fair Birthday Party

Every year we throw my daughter, Audrey, a birthday party. The kind of party that leaves her mom (me) with glue gun blisters, heat exhaustion and a few new strands of gray hair. You might remember her 1st3rd...

Here at SMP, we're firm believers that inspiration is everywhere, and for these two lovebirds, a passion for reading had them hitting the library for some creative ideas. With help from Hatch Creative Studio, the unique design incorporated fun pieces (like a card catalog to hold the escort cards!) throughout the decor. Loli Events made sure everything ran perfectly and according to plan, and...
