I’m doing it again… Posting another “Real Wedding” that I’ve covered before. Once again, this is because I had been too impatient to wait for the photos that Jennifer Driscoll was taking. So, this is somewhat a combination of several previous posts. The first one covered the amazing calligraphy work done by Jane Farr, the next was the gorgeous photography taken at Nicole and Ryan’s wedding by none other than Andrew Scalini and finally, the  stunning stationery shoot done by Jennifer. Enjoy!

First, a couple shots that I took…

The envelopes were hand stamped (by me).
I then gave the stamp to Nicole and Ryan
so that they could continue using it
for every day snail-mail.

And now for Jennifer and Andrew’s photos!

Nicole and Ryan’s save the dates…

Their reception was held and the always fabulous IMA!

And last, but not least,
a photo of the happy couple!

I’m sure most of you have seen the latest wedding trend….Candy Bars. However, these are a few of the most stunning displays I have ever seen. I found the images on the Somewhere Splendid blog. Just looking at them makes me hungry!

These heavenly sweets were created by Linda of Call Me Cupcake.

A while back I posted a few pictures of one of my favorite wedding sets (Lindsey + Ryan). I should have waited until I had these photos (taken by Jennifer Driscoll). She really captured the simple elegance of this wedding! I also wanted to include some actual shots from their wedding, which were taken by Bowersock Photography. They truly did an amazing job!!!!!

Lindsey and Ryan wanted to send out
a fun and festive save the date,
but still representing the New Orleans theme.
I decided to create a “jazz poster” to get their party kicked off.

For the wedding invitations,
they wanted something a bit more formal
with an obvious NOLA feel.

These were all of their
“day of pieces.”





The escort cards were hung on
Mardi Gras beads and were encased
in a custom made shadow box.



I also made favor stickers
for the festive cupcake boxes.




And of course, a shot of the
beautiful couple…

I know I’ve featured this adorable couple before, but I recently had the very talented Jennifer Driscoll photograph Tiffany and Ryan’s wedding stationery. I just wanted to give you all a peak!

And here are a few photos taken by Jennifer at Tiffany and Ryan’s wedding….stunning!!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this wedding! Of course, I found it on the Style Me Pretty blog (it’s pretty much the best).  After only seeing a few photos (taken by The Nichols), I had to ogle the entire gallery (click here to check it out). This is the picture perfect vintage wedding… from the elegant tea cups to the dramatic red lipstick….this wedding has it all!

I’ve been coming across quite a few blogs that feature this up and coming trend – vintage brooch bouquets. Now, I know it’s not for everyone, but it’s definitely something different and a keepsake that you will always have from your wedding day. I’ve done some searching and found this post on the Green Wedding Shoes blog….

I’ve been coming across quite a few brides lately who have made their own vintage brooch bouquet or purchased one. I love this idea since you can incorporate family brooches into your bouquet. Maybe your grandmother has some she would be willing to lend/give you. I know when my grandmother passed away a few years ago, she left all the grandchildren some of her brooches and I’ve been wondering what to do with them – this would have been such a great idea! I also heard from another bride that she asked all her friends + family to each send her a brooch. She then took all the brooches they sent and created her own bouquet from them. The day of her wedding everyone could see their piece in her bouquet – so sweet! You could also check out thrift stores or ebay to find some to match your color palette.

I really loved how Britt’s mother also incorporated feathers into her’s
as seen in the wedding I shared this morning by the Last Forty Percent Photography.

This lovely bride made her bouquet all from
her grandmother’s jewerly, photos by Flutter Glass.

More gorgeous bouquets…

There are also some designers out there who will create one of these pieces of art for you! Amanda at Fantasy Floral Designs credits herself as the original creater of the brooch boquet and she can create one of her lovely bouquets for you.

I’m also totally in love with the whimsical beauty
of the bouquets created by Noaki Jewelry.
