I had such a delightful birthday – thank you to everyone for leaving me such sweet comments! One of my favorite parts about birthdays is getting to have dessert with every meal and no one can judge you for it. I love that. I also love these fun links from around the web…

If you’re looking for the perfect wallpaper for your desktop, look no further!

I love everything about these invites, and I can never get enough of Betsy’s calligraphy.

Tea parties are one of my favorite things.

Surprise parties are fun too – why not a surprise wedding!?

Sweet little rose pins for everyone.

And a walk through a virtual rose garden.

A field of yellow perfection.

Quirky, modern invites – love them!

A little spring break for those of us who didn’t take one this year, inspired by Anna Melcon Bond’s fabulous photo of the Sunken Gardens motel. I’m thinking whitewashed beach cottages, once-bright colors faded by salty air, and bare feet, decorated with a fair amount of beachy Florida kitsch. And if you did go on a spring break this year, or plan to, do share so the rest of us can live vicariously through you.

Happy spring! Cindy’s daffodil photo inspired this sweet, simple and light wedding board. Daffodil’s seem like the quintessential harbinger of spring, and I wanted to create an inspiration board that conveyed that early spring feeling. Pale yellow, creamy white, and a hint of faded gray. Though I imagined this wedding in a quaint country setting, I think it could work equally well in an urban loft or a favorite restaurant.

Oh! I totally forgot to mention this yesterday. This week I’ll be guest blogging over at Nole’s pretty blog, Oh So Beautiful Paper, together with lovely Chelsea. Be sure to check it out!

Mood: early spring sweetness

I was so excited when I received an email from Jonathan Young, the talent behind Love Captures Photography. His work is fresh and vibrant, and he really captures the essence of a moment, along with all of the special details of a wedding day. He is a photojournalist who brings a reportage style and background to wedding photography. Here is just a taste…

See more of Jonathan’s beautiful work on the Love Captures Photography website, and on his blog. And if you like what you see, book him quick – I have a feeling he is going to be in high demand!
