Gosh you guys – I can’t say thank you enough for all of the pep comments and support from you this week. Just a few days away has been really good for me to de-stress and remember what the wedding is all about. If you’re feeling at all overwhelmed or like you need a reality check, I definitely recommend spending some time over at A Practical Wedding. I don’t know that I’ll be able to plan my wedding without it. Of course, I still love all the pretties too… ;)


The delightful wedding of Laura and Ben.

A carnival wedding just in time for summer.

Is it really a birdcage veil without a bird?

I love balloons, but I love ribbons too.

Have a happy happy weekend lovelies! And remember that if you’re going crazy with wedding planning, it’s okay to unplug for a bit!

Hello lovelies! Thank you so much for all of your understanding and kind words about my little rant post the other day – and I’m so glad to know that I’m not the only one who’s felt that way! I’ve been trying my hardest to get some inspiration boards put together for you, but they’re just not coming together right now. I guess I needed a bit more of a break from weddings than I originally thought. So, instead of an inspiration board, I thought I’d share with you some of the things that are inspiring me right now…

The first real wedding I ever posted.


An airstream vacation.

Vintage botany illustrations.


Baby hedgehogs – so cute!

Silverware garden markers.

Up, up and away!

Whimsical paper ships.

I hope these inspire you too! And if there is anything that’s really inspiring you today, feel free to leave a link in the comments. Have a beautiful Wednesday!

Hello lovelies! So we’re getting settled into our place in Austin, enjoying lots of good food, and doing some exploring. Thank you SO much to all of you for the great tips! If you have any others, I’m all ears. I’ve been without internet for most of the past week, so I’m way behind, but while I get caught up, here are some of my favorite things from around the web right now…

Snow globes in June.

Currently my most favorite wedding ever.

Don’t miss their engagement pics, either.

Lots of inspiration from The Sartorialist this week, here, here, here, here, here and here.

Security envelopes at it again.

Clever, non-traditional invites and save-the-dates.

Have a happy weekend!

I’ve got quite the weekend planned – we’re leaving Saturday to move from Wisconsin all the way to Austin! I’ll be taking a break from inspiration boards next week, but I’ve got some beautiful real weddings lined up for you. Until then, here are some of my favorite links from around the web this week…

Beautiful wedding film by A Bryan Photo. Love these guys!

Have a wonderful weekend!

This weekend is going to be action packed! I will be checking out some wedding venues (!) and spending some quality time with my girl friends to celebrate one of them getting married this fall. And then as soon as that’s over, I get to pack my life into boxes and move to an entirely new state… I’m sure I’ll be asking all of you for your tips and recommendations. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite links from around the web this week…
