Whether you’re new to Snippet & Ink, or you’ve been reading for awhile, I’m happy to share Paloma’s Nest with you today! They are one of our long-time sponsors, and they create such charming wedding day accessories and gifts – I especially love their Ring Bearer Bowls – perfectly sweet, simple and sophisticated, and customizable, too! They really are modern heirlooms that will be treasured for years to come.

Paloma’s Nest also hand crafts delightful wedding keepsakes like monogram cufflinks, customized cake plates, and personalized family plaques – all of which would make for a thoughtful wedding gift!

Using simple, natural materials like porcelain, clay, wood and paper, each piece is handmade – with every single letter of text individually stamped by hand. Really, what’s nicer than receiving something that was made with care? Check out Paloma’s Nest for even more sweet gift ideas and wedding day accessories that the recipient will love.

Aalicea and Mike are high school sweethearts who were married this past Saturday, so it seemed like the perfect time to feature their sweet love shoot from photographer Brittany Sharday

You have to love how apparent their love is for one another in these photos! Says Aalicea: “Before I knew him very well I somehow knew deep down that we would be together someday. We just fit, like we are supposed to be together and that’s it. Most of the time people around us can’t understand our conversations because they mainly consist of inside jokes and lines from our favorite shows and movies. We are definitely best friends – how cool is it to marry your best friend? After five years it still feels like we are back in high school – flirting in the hallway, only now it’s the hallway in our little yellow farm house with our cat. What a beautiful life we have – I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Congratulations Aalicea and Mike! See lots more photos from their engagement session over on Brittany’s blog.

Tomorrow I’m having some of my favorite ladies over for brunch, but I haven’t quite solidified the menu yet – any suggestions? It’s a belated birthday celebration for one of them, so anything I make has to be delicious. What are you up to this weekend? Share your plans in the comments, along with your favorite brunch recipes!

This wedding from One Love Photo kills me – that’s the bride playing cello!

A staring contest party sounds hilarious!

Accordion party hats are a nice change from the usual.

Beautiful black and ivory inspiration from Grey Likes Weddings.

How delightful is this Alice in Wonderland climbing wall?!

Vanilla ice sounds like a yummy way to dress up a Coca-Cola.


Have a lovely weekend everyone!

This month, ArtCarved Bridal invited me to be their August guest blogger, and asked me to share a little about my personal style and what inspires me, and I have to say – it was tough to narrow it down! Some of the things that I shared were…

…whimsical packaging and labels, especially vintage and retro ones.

…arrangements of white flowers and lush foliage – they feel like a little piece of garden in a vase.

…vintage botanical prints. They just make me smile, especially when I come across a special one at a flea market or antique store.

In talking about my personal style, ArtCarved also asked me to pick my favorite engagement ring from their collection – also tough to narrow down! There were a few that I really loved, but my very favorite is the Ashley ring – it feels timeless and elegant and like everything I’d want in a ring.

I also love the Ariel (so Princess Diana) and the Ivory. Who am I kidding – there are lots more lovelies where these came from!

See the rest of my guest post over at ArtCarved Bridal (I may or may not have indulged in a one-sentence gush about my husband…), and check out all of their beautiful engagement rings and wedding bands. Which one fits your personal style?
