From Inspiration to Reality, VI


So if you're wondering why we are so obsessed with our From Inspiration to Reality feature, I thought I'd shed a little light. For one, it gives the really talented vendors in our book an opportunity to shine. To design with total creative freedom. To get back to their roots and have a day of pure fun, of pure style. Second, it gives our brides such incredible ideas that they can translate into their own wedding. Real, solid, practical ideas from color...

If you are as obsessed as I am with the From Inspiration to Reality feature that we are doing today, you'll be really happy about this next little tidbit. Ryan Koral, owner and creative genius behind Epic Motion, was on hand to capture the entire day on film. And it's awesome. Seriously awesome. To see the whole gorgeous day unfold and really see the the creativity and thoughtfulness that went into the look is, well...pretty kick ass. I...

A few quick notes about the photography behind today's affair from Aruna...

When we were first picking out inspiration boards I think it was important to us to do something unique and bold. Then when we started to brainstorm I got really excited about all the different elements that were coming together. From the frame wall to the croquembouche (french wedding cake), I knew this was going to be amazing to photograph. The Royal...

From Inspiration to Reality, III

So. The last couple of weeks have actually been our highest traffic weeks of the entire life of Style Me Pretty. Something to be really proud of, which of course we are. But to be honest, we are mostly just thrilled to have partnered up with vendors who are helping us to generate content that gives us that traffic, like today's From Inspiration to Reality Shoot. The talent, the creativity, the ideas, the style behind this group of Michigan vendors...it's total insanity. And we feel really...

We are putting the finishing touches on our latest and greatest From Inspiration to Reality that we teased you with last week...and when I tell you that it's good. Man oh man is it good.

From Inspiration to Reality: Translated

So, a picture perfect photo shoot is just fine and dandy...but how do you translate the look into an actual wedding? We've put together some tips for you guys who are loving this style but need a little help making it happen!

1. The chairs. These are the shining star of the entire event, right. Well, Chiavari rentals can cost a pretty penny so although this is definitely the easiest route, it's also the most expensive. If you are already renting chairs though, take this shoot as the...

From Inspiration to Reality: The Design, IV

Being a bit of a stationery snob, I was kind of over the moon to see the stationery pieces that were included in today's shoot. Designed by Sara Fitzgerald O’Brien of Griffin-vites Stationery they were actually one of the elements that I loved the most...and in a room this gorgeous, that says a lot. Who knew that roosters could be so freaking chic. Sara is an absolutely awesome designer who clearly took...

The very first From Inspiration to Reality feature that we did blew my socks off. It was incredible for me to see an inspiration board that a reader designed literally come to life. I left the shoot feeling like I was on top of the world, not to mention more motivated than I've ever been in my entire life. To see something so beautiful that was designed exclusively for Style Me Pretty is humbling, it's...

I am so thrilled that one of our readers, Kate, designed a board that could inspire such loveliness. This shoot is the perfect example of how to use an inspiration board to translate an entire wedding. It's about designing a feeling, a vibe. It's finding beauty in the details and bringing them to life through decor, through flowers, through fashion and style. And...

I am generally blown away by the work that our Little Black Book members are putting out there. I am rarely surprised. But this shoot...totally surprised, totally inspired, totally motivated me to get up really early and start blogging away.

The From Inspiration to Reality Shoot was put together by two of our favorite LBB members, Millie Holloman...

From Inspiration to Reality: The Design

Every now and then I am at a loss for words. It happens rarely and is usually brought on by something so pretty that I simply can't find a way to properly describe just how much I love it. Thus is the case with today's photo shoot. What I can say is that this shoot is the reason that I love what I do so very much. It's the reason that I feel so incredibly lucky to work in an industry with people that create, people that inspire. It's the reason that I walk around with a smile on my face every...
