Pretty bouquets seems to be the theme today. Did you see the bride’s bouquet from this morning’s Florida garden wedding? Gorgeous. The florals in this styled shoot, inspired by vintage botanical prints, is so the perfect way to start off the week. Berry, blush, plum tones and gold accents. And doesn’t that sound like the […]

Sometimes you just don’t mess with a good thing… until it’s time. Like after 10 years of being together. By then it doesn’t matter that you’re a full time grad student working full time and you’re in the middle of buying your first home. That’s Kalindi + Ben for ya. The short version of their story […]

Yes the title of this post is bridesmaid dress ideas, but really, a bride can pull off these looks too. Don’t get us wrong though, we’d die to see a wedding with bridesmaids wearing these, they’re stunning.
