I thought I’d try and start the year off with a sweet, bright, and cheerful wedding board. The palette and mood of today’s board were inspired by Eva Lindh’s sweet photo – darling curls, a green gingham ribbon, and pops of orange and yellow. And I know they’re not exactly original, but for added sweetness, how can you resist balloons and cupcakes?

Mood: simple spring charm
Palette: spring green, pale aqua, yellow, orange, white

Top row from left: green gingham headband, Ann Wood cake topper via Style Me Pretty, balloons and bouquet both from Martha Stewart Weddings
Row 2: Swans Island Blanket via A Little Sussy, melon cups from Martha Stewart Weddings, ties photo by Thornton Photo, lemonade from Amy Atlas
Row 3: plate from Anthropologie, cupcake photo by Victoria Pearson, mason jar lights from Martha Stewart Weddings, notecards from Martha Stewart Crafts
Row 4: bouquet from Martha Stewart Weddings, dress via coco + kelley, boutonniere by Twigs & Honey, dress from Brides

Update! A lot of you have asked me about the Martha Stewart notecards, and my original link no longer works, which makes me think they’re not available anymore. If anyone has any luck tracking them down, please let us know in the comments!

How nice to go straight from a holiday into the weekend! Here are some of my favorite things from around the web recently…

Nancy Liu Chin’s lovely “Lemon Pop” decor.

Robyn and Will’s signature cocktail.

A fun ruffly, short dress.

And a yellow petticoat!

Destination wedding invitations by Hello! Lucky (and be sure to check out their new website).

And thank you to Kelly Oshiro and The Invitation Lady for including Snippet & Ink as one of their favorite blogs!

Today we have another beautiful wedding shot by Karen Wise


Deborah carried a clutch that belonged to Sean’s grandmother, and wore her grandmother’s pearls and a dress by Selia Yang.

Look at Sean’s sweet “locket” money clip, with a photo of his beautiful bride.

Sean and Deb created their own New Yorker magazine for out-of-town guests, full of fun things to do in the city and articles contributed by family members with stories about growing up in Chinatown, running the New York City marathon, and other New York related tales.

The ceremony took place at St. Luke in the Fields.

Flowers by Elegant Affairs.

Worried they might not have time to eat, Deb and Sean stopped by Gray’s Papaya for hot dogs between the ceremony and the reception!¬†

For favors (that double as seating cards!), Sean and Deb wrapped some of their favorite books in brown paper, and labeled them with each guest’s name and a volume number. Each volume number acted as a table number, directing guests to their seats.


The reception took place at the Yale Club.

Carrot cake was perfect for an October wedding.

Congratulations Deb and Sean, and thank you to Karen Wise for sharing these lovely photos with us!
