Monkey's in Montauk

I'm off to Montauk for a long weekend and I thought I would share one of my favorite beach weddings from the Long Island town. The bride, a former set decorator for Sex and the City, came up with an amazing monkey theme soiree. From her and her father (in the monkey suit) arriving to the ceremony by boat, to the incredible grass monkey topiaries hanging from the reception ceiling amidst brightly colored lanterns, this wedding was a visual feast! The bride even grew the monkey topiaries in her parent's backyard! I also love the pink bridesmaid dresses with the tan groomsmen suits, what a great color combo. I can only imagine how much fun it was to be in attendance at this wedding!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hoot & Heart

I am really drawn to the subtle grey and lavender tones in these flower arrangements from Hoot and Heart. The occasional pops of green and their use of texture are absolutely gorgeous. These are some of my favorite arrangements that I have seen in a wedding to date.

I love these dessert plates by Jason Miller, they remind me a lot of another favorite set of plates by Hella Jongerius, but these are much more affordable! They would make a great addition to any table setting and in generations to come, I bet your kids will fight over them.
