Real Wedding: The Details, VI

So today's affair was all about the details. Those perfect little touches that take the wedding style to a whole new level. Of course, like one of our readers said in the comments, a wedding really is all about the bride and the groom and the love that they share. BUT, in terms of style...the weddings that people always remember are those where the details shine.

Remember, details shouldn't push your budget. They should not cost more than you are really comfortable with. Look to...

Real Wedding: The Details, III

There is something so unbelievably cohesive and yet so wonderfully effortless about today's featured affair. The decor blends seamlessly with the natural surrounding and doesn't at all seem over styled or designed.

The white and teal palette, paired with the silver and natural hues is FLAWLESS. Placing huge hurricane vases with pillar candles in the sand is genius and added that touch of romance that every reception needs. I can't say enough about this gorgeous affair that Lisa...

Real Wedding: The Details, II

When I talk about "the details" on SMP...what I really mean are the little things. Thoughtful touches that make a wedding truly memorable...perhaps it's simply serving food that reflects your personalities or designing menu cards, place cards and programs that are charming and sweet, favors that are so "you." The details are the little things that truly elevate a wedding.

Although not everyone can have a wedding in paradise, everyone can find inspiration in one! From the bamboo...

Can one color, one photo, one cake... inspire an entire affair? When I saw this cake designed by Lark Cake Shop, I was totally convinced.

Here is my...

Fall Wedding Color Palette

It's cool and rainy here in Boston...the first sign that Fall is here! Although I am a Texas girl at heart and love lazy days in the sun, there is just something so warm and cozy about the first month of Fall. When I saw this beautiful wedding, shot by Elizabeth Messina (who by the way, has the most incredible photographs on her site), it just made me so inspired for this wedding season...

How beautiful is this palette of...
