In between all of those crazy good Thanksgiving leftover sandwich creations, cozy snuggles by the fire and board gaming with family, there’s always room for a hint of wedding inspo hunting, no? And what better place to start than with our incredible Little Black Book Members. They’ve provided us with a plethora of pretty this week friends, starting with a handful of charmed moments below.
This Bride. She glows. Wrapped in lace and her rich locks in a low loose bun, it makes me want to get dressed up for my wedding day all over again. Every single snap of this day from Ashley Bosnick does, including the cozy candlelit reception at 128 South. Thankfully, THE VAULT gallery is at my fingertips so I can click my way through every bit.
From The Bride…I wasn’t really ever the one who thought about her wedding day since she was a little girl, but when my family took me to Italy for my 16th birthday I absolutely fell in love. When Chris proposed a few years later I knew I wanted that simple, yet romantic Italian country side feeling for my wedding day. I was so blessed to be able to get married in the same church that my parents and grandparents had gotten married in years before me, and 128 South right down the street was the perfect place for our reception. It had that perfect exposed brick, warm and romantic Italian feel we were looking for and Design Perfection did a wonderful job bringing my vision to life with my favorite peach Juliet roses and beautiful lush greenery surrounded by hundreds of romantic candles. I may be biased but it was the most beautiful and fun wedding I have ever been to! I pictured myself wearing something completely different on my wedding day but when I found my dress I just knew my grandpa, who passed away not long before the wedding, would’ve loved it and that was so important to me. I am so thankful for my parents who did so much and made our perfect day possible. Our wedding day, surrounded by our closest friends and family, was easily the best day of my life to date. I am beyond lucky to have found the one who will forever be my always and to have married my soulmate. I believe God thought of me when he made Chris, we are absolutely meant to be. We look forward to many more adventures together and can’t wait to see what the future has to hold.

As we top our tables with beautiful wares and scrumptious food today, we fill our hearts with love and our homes with laughter. Thanksgiving is the one holiday that most reminds me of wedding celebrations. It echos that same act of gathering and giving gratitude for the warmth of family and friends. A Family Affair and Justina Bilodeau portray that sweet thanks with every inch of this autumn shoot. See it all in THE VAULT!
From Justina Bilodeau…I teamed up with the oh-so-talented Paula of A Family Affair for this autumnal inspiration set on a New England farm. We paired vintage furniture pieces with lush florals in golden hues to create a warm, inviting tablescape, as well as a charming tea-station dessert table, ideal for a chilly fall day.
Our bride wore a timeless long-sleeved gown by Saja accented by vintage inspired jewelry handmade by Edera and gold shoes from Bella Belle. We also added a vintage crimson skirt for a pop of color!
