Weddings Inspired By…

I remember years ago seeing in a wedding magazine (I don’t even remember which one) that when Cynthia Rowley got married (the first time) she shuttled her guests from ceremony to reception in big yellow school buses. I can’t find a picture for the life of me, but that image really struck a chord. Isn’t […]

The Smashing Pumpkins‘ Mellan Collie & the Infinite Sadness was one of my favorite albums back in the day and the music video for ‘Tonight’ is still among the best ever.  The aesthetic in the video is very ‘steampunk’ but I think using touches of the Victorian aesthetic as inspiration for a wedding without going […]

Elizabeth.  If you haven’t seen Cate Blanchet in this, please I beg you to put it to the top of your queue.  It’s really one of the prettiest movies: I rewatched it recently and thought wouldn’t that be a lovely wedding inspiration.  The key to this one is keeping it really simple.  Too much you […]

An English Hunting Weekend! I love the idea of a wedding on a blustery autumn day during hunting season in the English countryside.  Now, I don’t think it is necessary to actually take up arms on your wedding day but infusing a few of the traditions into your nuptials would make for a very chic […]

The dress… I found the vintage image below (it was sent in by a […]

We recently booked a summer 2013 Nantucket wedding, which got me thinking about romances by the sea. So, this week’s wedding is inspired by sandy beaches, salty air, and everything nautical (photo below from Rue Magazine, shot by Jose Villa) The color palette… (boat photo from here, print from here) The dress… I’m loving the top dress’s subtle […]

Shades of White This week I was really inspired by the effect of white on white.  We’ve had so little snow this year, perhaps I am just longing for that serene feeling I get when the whole world is blanketed in white.  I love the way a simple touch of grey, like the trees on […]

Weddings Inspired by: The English Patient

The English Patient is such a romantic movie and a great inspiration for a wedding.  You can go quite literal with your translation without the design feeling heavy handed. I love the above dress by Raf Simons for Jill Sander S/S 2012.  It’s so buttoned up/safari/Grace Kelly.  I think I would style it with the […]

This week’s Weddings Inspired By is all about neon hues! Choosing a color palette can be a daunting task for some, but for others who know they want bold, bright, and bad ass colors, neon is the only way to go! The dress….You really have to be in the mood to make a statement, but your wedding […]
