Duke University Wedding

Thanks to Danielle Freedman and her District Weddings Blog for posting a great piece about one of our favorite couples from last year, Caitlin and Kevin.  They are Duke graduates who met in undergrad and as you'll see in the post, had a beautiful ceremony reception at their alma mater.  Thanks again to Rachel Garrison of Tamara Lackey Photography for the stunning photos!  We hope you can't help but be inspired by this.

Simply Silhouettes

I know I may be late to the party on this one, but I am currently obsessed with silhouettes!
They are so fresh and chic right now, 
and such an innovative and cool thing to add to your wedding look.  See the photo above
by Hannah Suh of an artist cutting out silhouettes of wedding guests.  How fun!  What a great
souvenir for them to take home from your wedding and save forever.
Here's a great idea: add silhouettes to your cake!  Here they've used a chandelier motif along
with a couple dancing, but you could do your two faces looking at one another, or the outline
of your entire bodies holding hands.  So cute and different.
Here's a gorgeous wedding invitation that has incorporated silhouettes.  Why not begin the theme with your invitations and carry it all the way throughout your event, to your cake and your favors?  I love the idea of threading a concept all the way through the wedding and a silhouette theme is a perfect choice for this.  Get inspired!  Look for silhouette artists in your neighborhood.

Happy Weekend!


Monique Bliss

For those of you who don't already know, Monique Lhuillier has a new line called Bliss that is a bit less expensive than her original line.  This gives you and your budget savvy self an opportunity to wear a gorgeous Monique gown and feel as if you're wearing couture!  I just fell in love with one from the 2011 collection with a beautiful lace bodice and lace straps.  When I was shopping for a wedding gown in 2004, there was nothing to be found but strapless, strapless, strapless.  It's so nice to see that there are more silhouette options out there now and Monique is certainly leading the way.

Fifi Cheek - Blogs We Love!

I'm feeling so inspired this morning by my good friend LC's Blog called "Fifi Cheek".
Her posts are fresh and feminine and I totally connect with her love of all things French
and beautiful.  Her home is a true reflection of the style that she adores and what's more,
she designed it all herself.  If only you could see it!  Get a glimpse inside her world

Happy Weekend!
