A Touch of Gold

Recently I came across a gorgeous little wedding on the Readymade blog. And I thought to myself, wait, I went to school with that person! So I emailed Lynn, who is a very talented designer living in Philly, and asked her if she minded if I put her photos up on my blog.

Lynn & Scott's wedding is a true reflection of a couple with a "maker" spirit. Every little detail & notion was made and thought of with love. Lynn made her reception dress & hairpiece and necklace! How perfectly polished is her look? Love the brown waistband. And then onto the table decor - the gorgeous Red Wing plates, surrounded with lace & gold ribbon with touches of pale turquoise are perfectly arranged & placed. The tree branch names cards are also quite brilliant. The dessert bar with the tree logs definitely proves that you don't need a fancy pants cake stand to wow your guests. And have you ever seen gold foil cupcake wrappers look so good?

Really, I could go on and on, their wedding was just so sweet and there are more details Lynn shared about their day here.

Letter Lights

I've always loved Perch, but I've never owned any of their pieces. Lately I've been thinking about buying Lyla one of these letter light pendants. How cute are they? I would love to spell out her whole name, but that may take quite a few years to complete...
