We Played With Diamonds in Vegas And Here’s What Happened

If there’s one thing I learned at JCK Las V egas last week (a.k.a. heaven), it’s that a picture can’t do justice to a gorgeous engagement ring, especially one from Scott Kay. With exquisite, sparkly details from every angle, every one of Scott Kay‘s rings are beautiful, but they’re aren’t just another pretty piece of jewelry — each ring, from any one of his six signature collections, represents love, marriage and #ALifeTogether!

As I walked through the Scott Kay lounge, I couldn’t help but get a little snap happy with my phone’s camera. I mean you try walking through a room full of gorgeous diamonds without stopping to take a picture of each and every one. But as I flipped through my pictures later that night, I realized that no picture could capture all the beautiful details on a Scott Kay ring. If I took a birds-eye-view photo of the ring on my finger, you missed out on the intricate designs on the ring’s profile that give it a major “wow” factor unlike any other. And if I took a picture of the profile view, you couldn’t appreciate the signature Scott Kay sparkle.

So, what’s a girl to do? Head into one of Scott Kay‘s retailers to try on the dazzling diamonds for yourself!

Forget Gold – This Wedding Proves Silver is Just As Pretty

You first met our girl Abby Silverman and her beau Tom for their Pittsburgh engagement session, and today we’re peeking into their modern ballroom wedding infused with shades of silver. Abby drew her inspiration through countless trips to The Vault and made certain every last detail was styled, chic and personal to them. Check out Michaelwill Photography’s pretty captures and scroll below for more ideas to add a touch of silver to your wedding day.

From The Bride… Tom (the hubby) and I met at Syracuse University in 2008 (almost eight years to the day we tied the knot). Tom, was an graduating senior and I was a outgoing sophomore. Needless to say, when we first met, the idea of getting married was well… not on our minds. However after eight years, countless miles of long distance driving and several apartments between us, we made it official!

Never have I ever felt so prepared and so unprepared for what was ahead of me. However, someone asked me recently what I would change and I couldn’t think of a thing! Sure, there were hiccups along the way, but nothing else mattered when I saw Tom for the first time and I walked down the aisle with my dad (to Kisses and Cake from P.S. I Love You).

Tom and I were very lucky! We had the support of our incredible friends, family and a team of AMAZING vendors who helped to take our idea’s and make them a wedding-bliss reality. Choosing the right team (and I mean it, they are your team) is so important. Getting married in a hotel ballroom has its challenges, but with the help of Hens and Chicks decorating the space to perfection with succulents, peonies, earl gray roses and countless other blooms and Michael Will capturing every moment, it was nothing short of breathtaking.

Some words of advice from a former bride to future brides: Enjoy every moment! Even if that’s spray painting Ikea picture frames silver and realizing you only ordered enough for seven tables (we had 15 tables). Things happen and what really matters is in that moment of chaos appreciate how special and momentous it all is – because seriously – it’s over in a flash … but totally worth the extra car ride to Ikea.

A Wedding Where Big City Chic Meets Napa Valley Charm

Now that you’ve fallen in love with this couple and their hoedown rehearsal dinner I think it’s high time we dive into the wedding day that followed. It’s one of those incredible celebrations that could only ever happen with a crew of top-notch vendors behind it, and thanks to A Savvy EventGot LightPaula LeDuc, plus Jessica Burke and Paperweight Films capturing the fun, that’s exactly what happened. Let’s not waste another second chatting and instead, head straight to The Vault.

Al Fresco

From Jessica BurkeAllie + Constantine were married at Beaulieu Garden in the Napa Valley. With A Savvy Event at the helm and Paula LeDuc catering, it truly was a one-of-a-kind event. So many amazing touches – from the mirrored reception tables, to the insane lounge setups, crystal chandeliers and everything in-between, it was unforgettable for all!

From A Savvy EventAllie and Constantine met in New York City, but chose to say their I Do’s on the West Coast, choosing Napa’s breathtaking Beaulieu Garden as their venue. The couple wanted a setting that was warm and welcoming, and one that could host their friends and family for an extended weekend of festivities. Napa, with its unmistakable charm and refined-country vibe, fit the bill perfectly.

The couple opted for a Black Tie affair–a fact that was illustrated by incorporating a black velvet ribbon in the oh-so-swanky invitation suite (which Nessa from The Card Bar executed beautifully). Soft, elegant and romantic details peppered the entire affair–from the French silk ribbon that tied the bride’s bouquet of white and blush peonies, to pink sequined cocktail linens that added that special celebratory flair to the overall aesthetic.

Arrangements both soft and grand boasted everything from garden roses to hydrangea to anemones. Trailing passion vines finished off the florals, adding a touch of whimsy to the formal affair. Guests dined al fresco under the shade of an age-old Sycamore arbor–arguably one of the venue’s most ethereal details. Crystal drop chandeliers were suspended over mirrored dining tables–creating an absolutely magical secret-garden-esque area for guests to celebrate. A myriad of dreamy candlelight and a mix of unexpected florals adorned each table.

Two white leather bars, accented with super chic brass studs and gold accessories were stand-out pieces at the event, and framed the venue’s glimmering outdoor pool perfectly. We created a lounge area (complete with formal black cane back chairs) where guests could relax and mingle. Our favorite detail, though? Plush pillows that boasted the couple’s custom monogram sat pretty on tufted white linen couches and made for a detail guests won’t soon forget.

Overall, the event was the perfect balance of Big City Chic and Napa Au Natural. We absolutely adored working with Allie and Constantine to create an affair that reflected their interests and tastes (and one that everyone–including Allie’s 90-year-old Grandfather–was able to enjoy).
