Real Wedding - Elliston Vineyards - Evonne and Chris

Hi all! I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving and stuffed yourselves silly! We went up to wine country to visit with family and had a wonderful time.

Today, I am so excited to share with you a Real Wedding! Evonne and Chris got married at Elliston Vineyards in the gorgeous Livermore Wine Country. This wedding was featured over on The Inspired Bride last Wednesday (which just happened to be my hubby's birthday - must be good luck!!) Here are a few more great photos from the amazing Gabriel Harber but please head on over to The Inspired Bride to read the full story! Just a little note, one my favorite thing about this wedding were the yummy peanut butter and jelly cupcakes by Marisa Cakes. I was a bit apprehensive at first - PB&J in a cupcake but they were seriously delish.

Dainty Details - Ice Blue Inspiration Board

Winter is here! A chill is in the air, twinkle lights are going up around the neighborhood and the holidays are getting closer. The season introduces a whole new element of detail to a winter themed wedding. So many fun colors to play with - dark rich reds, pine colored greens, and what about cool ice blue? Adding a sweet sophistication to baby blue is a fern green color. Boxwood wreaths, blue foil wrapped chocolate hearts, dainty swirls that mimic a snowy gust - I am loving this cool icy blue inspiration board that I pulled together!

Dainty Details - Design your own wedding shoes!

Monday Monday...still recovering from the worst cold ever and getting better every day! Now, my poor husband has it! I can finally almost talk today! Whoo hoo!

I wanted to share this nifty site that my momma showed me...Milk and Honey Shoes where you can simply design the perfect shoe! Think of the possibilities! Every bridesmaid could have a similar shoe in color and material but just in a different style! High heels, low heels, sparkles, straps, really it is whatever you dream the perfect shoe to be!

Two sisters, who adore shoes, came up with this amazing concept so if you have yet to find that dream shoe for your big event, start designing. They also have a lovely selection of ready to wear shoes that are simply fab.

Here are the sweet little pair that I designed for me. I am looking for the perfect gray suede T-strap and then I just couldn't help myself and had to add a little glitter to the toe. LOVE!
Head on over, check them out and just for fun whip up a shoe or two!

Happy almost Shoesday!

Fav Finds + Flower Friday - Michael Daigian Designs - SF Floral Designer

Happy Friday Friends! Things have been a bit crazy over here in my world. So please forgive the spotty posts these past two weeks. My little girl has an ear and eye infection, and I then I caught a nasty cold that made me lose my voice - now that was entertaining! It is finally back today, a little froggy but back in action.

Last week I was invited to visit my new friends at Michael Daigian Design and check out their pretty SF studio. I was treated to a lovely tour, yummy cookies and received a sweet little yellow orchid that I adore and am doing everything to keep alive (my past history with plants is a bit scary).

That said, I wanted to share this gorgeous dark bridal bouquet they designed. Loving how dramatic this is and how it would just look stunning at a black and white wedding.

On to my fav finds for the week!

Wedding Decor - Bee Mine - Bee Details

I do love the little bumble bee. Stingers aside, they are just so darn cute! My family threw me the most adorable bee themed baby shower with last summer. I was way impressed. I came across this cake from Maggie Austen Cake and was immediately smitten. LOVE!

I also squealed a bit when I found a whole inspiration board dedicated to the bee over on Snippet & Ink. Reminds me of a warm summer day. Good stuff!

Happy Monday!

Wedding Decor - Lovely Location - Rustic and Romance

Hope you are all handling your candy hangovers with dignity and grace. I want to share a gorgeous photo to kick off your November.

Location, location, location! Loving this romantic and rustic reception room. Very barn like and you know how I love those darn barns. The colors of the room are reflected across everything and then fun pops of green and it all works. The ribbons, the fireplace, the hay bales and the lanterns - really good stuff. Check out those table legs - the fun reverse situation?!
