Let there be florals

I am oh so excited for these. The floral goddess will be taking care of all of our bouquets and boutonnieres for the big day and we decided to tackle our own floral arrangements for the tables. To make it easy, we bought a bunch of vintage containers and will be filling them with the large blooms above and why not throw in a few billy buttons (or yellow ball things as I like to call them} while we are at it. I love all of the textures and the colors are going to bright, bright, bright just like I like it. We are also going to be buying a range of dahlias from a local grower to mix in. The above flowers we are going to purchase from That is sort of nerve racking but they have a lot of positive feedback so online shopping we go.

Vows I can get behind

Dana and Hunter's wedding of Broke Ass Bride fame was recently featured in the fourth installment of Utterly Engaged and I am sure you have seen pictures floating around the blogosphere but their wedding seriously super rad rocked. What took my breath away though, was not the stunning, drop dead gorgeous photos; it was their words. Perfection and I think I might need to steal them. Imitation is the biggest form of flattery right?

Juliet Hogan has mad style

I am a true vintage junky at heart and these pretty frocks spotted on Lake Jane are rocking my world right now. I'll take that last number head to toe.

I want to rock with you.

This bedroom is my kind of perfect. Mark my words, before I die I will have a bedroom with a fireplace. They just don't do that in California and quite frankly, I think it is rude.

Dear Reem Acra...

First it was your grecian wedding dresses that were incredibly out of my budget and now you are killing me with your pretty floral numbers that I can't afford. Le Sigh.

Shower Me with your Love

Here are a few snippets from my wedding shower over the weekend. It was such an amazing experience to have all of these fabulous women that have shaped me, grown with me, taught me who I am and what I want to be in one (incredibly beautiful)place. It was magical and can I please tell you how good the cupcakes were. This girl rocked it out with Lemon Chiffon Raspberry goodness and I think I ate about half.

My mom transformed her backyard into a sea of hay bales,candlelight, pom poms, gauzy fabric delightfulness and it was oh so pretty. My friend wisely commented "You are loved and you have the Anthro gifts to prove it."

Where the wild things are

This room comes complete with a tee pee and and a " Where the Wild Things Are" quote swirled on the wall. I think I've found heaven.

*Image via here...can you tell which blog I've been perusing for the last hour. Good stuff.

Grey Days

The mixture of grey silk walls, bright pops of orange patterns and concrete are making me very happy right about now.

Sexy Head Gear

I don't think I could pull this off but I luurrrvvee it. This pretty piece was made by Myra of Twigs and Honey who is making my veil but that one will be large and pouffy a la 80's awesomeness.

I think giraffes should make an appearance at more weddings. Don't you?

Bachelorette Extravaganza

I spent the weekend with my besties in Palm Springs lounging poolside, sipping on pina coladas and watching the most amazing karaoke performance of Pat Benatar I've seen to date. I would say Bachelorette Extravaganza 2009 was a success {although my liver might disagree} Thank you lovelies for one of the most fabulous weekends ever.
Now, excuse me while I try to recover. I think I might have left my brain at The Riviera.

Their style is so bright...I've gotta wear shades

This wedding is so gorgeous I nearly fell out of my chair. I sort of want to be this couple. They are over the top fantastic in my book. Mental Note - need fabulous red hair and uber talented twin sister that takes phenomenal photos...hmm.
