Not sure if all of you k now this, but I’m actually a California girl! Seriously! I was born in Glendale (suburb of L.A.) and lived there till I was 11. So of course, when I saw this post on 100 Layer Cake, I fell in love….

After stumbling upon this post, featured on Green Wedding Shoes, it made me realize how lovely it would be to have a warm and sunny winter season (especially after this latest snow fall). Regardless, the ideas can be used in any climate – I just wouldn’t recommend having an out door winter wedding here in Indiana!

They also created “Recipe for a Perfect Marriage”
cards in place of a guest book.

I love their “Pie in A Jar” favors! How cute are they?
They used seasonal fruits to fill them,
which make them a great way to weave the
holiday spirit into a wedding celebration.

A Color for All Seasons
Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.

While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.

Honeysuckle products are currently available from a variety of manufacturers:

Wedding Apparel
A flattering hue for wedding attendant apparel and accessories, Honeysuckle is now one of the nearly 200 PANTONE WEDDING Colors available from Dessy, a leading manufacturer of bridesmaid, social-occasion and flower-girl dresses. PANTONE WEDDING exclusively from Dessy provides a collection of color tools to make it easy for brides to achieve perfectly color-coordinated weddings – from inspiration to “I do.”

You’ve probably seen Ryan and Nicole’s wedding invitation posted on my blog a time or two. I can help it…this was one of my favorite designs of the year…and couple too! I’ve finally gotten a few photos from their picture perfect day, photographed by Andrew Scalini and hosted at the IMA.

I know it’s a bit late in the game for me to be throwing out a fall wedding post….however, I know there are plenty of you brides out there who are planning for your fall 2011 wedding. Hopefully this will give you a little inspiration!

Of course, I found this lovely photo shoot on the Style Me Pretty blog; designed by Jessica Sloane of Love Bird Style, captured by Souder Photography and decked out in lovely florals by Artisan Flowers.
