If you’re looking for a sweet, personalized gift for your bridesmaids (or your mother, or your sweetheart, or yourself!), you have to check out this custom hand-stamped jewelry by Lisa Leonard Designs. Lisa offers a variety of pieces, from necklaces to key chains to spoons (yes, spoons!), stamped with the monogram or words of your choice in sterling silver. Here are a few of my favorite necklaces…

Lisa originally started her business as a way to spend more time with her two sons, and is inspired by the beauty of the everyday. You can see more about Lisa and her work on her blog, and of course check out all of her pieces over at the Lisa Leonard Designs website.

One of my very first friends in the blog world was Pam Zsori, who writes the blog Housemartin. You may recognize her work from some of my inspiration boards, or maybe an article in Sunset magazine or Bride & Bloom. Not only is she the sweetest, but she’s also a very talented floral designer and the woman behind the home and floral shop, Ink & Peat. I’m so excited to share some of her work with you today! Here are just a few of my favorite bridal bouquets…

And here’s a little peek into the brick and mortar Ink & Peat shop…

If you’re in the Portland, Oregon area, you definitely have to stop by and see what she has in stock – so much fun stuff for your home or to give as gifts. And of course, if you’re planning a wedding or any event, Pam can create beautiful florals for you! Be sure to check out more about Ink & Peat, Pam’s floral design, and other pretty things on Housemartin.

I love the way that brides today can use the internet to connect with people – to get advice from other brides or wedding professionals, or to sell a dress that didn’t work out, or to buy a previously-owned veil or find deals on favors. And that’s what BravoBride is all about! It’s an online marketplace where brides, newlyweds and bridal boutiques can buy and sell new and pre-owned wedding items, from designer wedding gowns to jewelry to reception decorations.

In addition to all of this, BravoBride also offers a forum for brides to chat, and to give and get advice from one another, and a new blog where you can read wedding tips and learn about special promotions from wedding vendors. If you’re looking for good deals, or if you want to sell some of the items from your own wedding, be sure to check out BravoBride!

I can’t tell you how fun it is when I get to feature a company whose work I’ve loved for such a long time. From way before I ever even knew what a blog was, I’ve loved the things that Chronicle Books publishes, from beautiful cookbooks to crafty kits to silly gifts. Here are just three of their lovely books…

In The Destination Wedding Planner, Alison Hotchkiss gives advice on everything from choosing the location and setting a budget to managing arrangements from afar. And with beautiful photos by Thayer Allyson Gowdy you can’t miss it!

Sweetie Stats, written by a husband and wife, are little journals that help you be the best spouse you can be by tracking hundreds of fun and important stats about your spouse.

A Bloom a Day Fortune Telling Birthday Book has 365 gorgeous flower photographs for every day of the year, each with a corresponding birthday fortune and the meaning of the flower.

And right now, Chronicle Books is offering Snippet & Ink readers 20% off any purchase! Just enter the code SNIPPET when you check out. Trust me, you’ll want to spend some time browsing around the site – Chronicle Books are hard to resist!

I love having the chance to share one of my very favorite photographers with you – Jonathan Canlas! The color, the feeling that he captures in each image. I could go on and on, but really, the photos speak for themselves…

Shooting exclusively with film, Jonathan captures the details, moments and the overall feel of the day. He uses a mix of lifestyle photography, travel photography, and editorial portraiture to tell the unique story of each wedding he shoots. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out even more of Jonathan’s incredible work on his website, and keep up with his most recent work on his blog.
