Thoughtful Day in Utterly Engaged!

Hi everyone! I haven't been around much on the blog, but thank you for continuing to stop by. I'm excited to share a spread I created for the latest issue of Utterly Engaged! They asked me a while back to pick out some of my favorite bridal fashion and decor for a modern and white wedding, inspired by the photo of this amazing boutique. {boutique photos by nathalie bearden}

It was perfect timing because I had just designed a custom invite for a couple with a similar aesthetic, so I started with the invitation and picked out a few things that would pair well for a modern and hip wedding.

The dress is by Alix & Kelly and I love the simple and slim silhouette of this dress highlights the most beautiful features of the bride; her face and upper torso.
{via kristina of lovelymorning wore an alix & kelly dress for her wedding and ever since i've loved the simplicity of their dresses.}

Under every wedding dress there should be a pair of rock star fluorescent green strappy sandals by Loeffler and Randall.

For the bridesmaid's dress I chose a short and tailored dress by JCrew in a fun punchy (yet subtle) color like lime green which compliments the bride's dress (& shoes!).

decor & sweets
Sarah Magid's cakes are always organic and delightful pops of maximal color.

And how perfect would they look on these modern cake stands by Iacoli Mcallister.

And last but not least, the soft and feminine florals by Quatre Coeur are beautifully refreshing. Remember this shoot? I've been fortunate to work with Quatre Coeur before, so I immediately thought of them. {floral photo by allan zepeda}

Inspired Moments

The photography of Trine Thorsen transports me to little golden moments. Browsing through her photos, I kept thinking, "I want to be there." If you're looking for a bit of inspiration on this lovely Monday, you'll find it here.

Wouldn't the bottom photo of the flower lined wire basket be the perfect way to hold ceremony programs? How lovely to have a little area like this before guests walk down the aisle...

{I'm going to be sharing photos soon of my little trip to Portugal last week!}

Sunshine & Grey

I love these latest bouquets by floral extraordinaire Ink & Peat. The colors and textures are just perfect! If you click on the link here they list the names of each flower in the arrangement which is always so helpful as I am really bad at identifying specific types of flowers!

Thanks for the lovely eye candy Ink & Peat and the brilliant title that I just had to use too!

Moroccan Inspired Deliciousness

Here are some more photos of Amy's dessert table that I created patterns for! As you know, so many lovely and talented women worked together on this and Amy has a great breakdown of all of our contributions on her blog!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I promise to resume blogging more soon! Motherhood - which btw is amazing, running a business & designing, and enjoying summer with the family has taken over almost all of my time!!

Sunday Suppers !!!

The last couple of weeks I have had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with Sunday Suppers, the brainchild of the amazing and talented photographer Karen Mordechai & chef extraordinaire Casey Solomon. Along with designing the menus & other paper bits for Sunday Suppers (photos to follow) I was given the incredible opportunity to design some patterns for the brilliant Amy Atlas. The theme of the supper was Moroccan so we incorporated that same theme into Amy's dessert table. I designed the patterned backdrop as well some of the other paper elements on the table, which you will soon see. Amy had such a beautiful & clear vision that working with her was a dream. All of the details Amy envisions for her tables are so thoughtfully arranged & put together that her work is not only visually delicious but tasty too! Which leads me to Aran Goyoaga of the famed Cannelle et Vanille. Aran's desserts, if you can imagine, taste as delicious as they look. Which is hard to believe because everything she does looks and is a piece of art! The beautiful center cake was by Love Street Cakes, which was the perfect centerpiece. And last but not least the gorgeous flower treatments were by the lovely and talented Jessie from Rountree. Wait until you see her flowers on the dinner table !!! More pics to come throughout the next couple of days!

The dessert table truly was visually and tastefully delicious! And if you live in NYC or nearby - you should definitely attend one these Sunday Suppers, they are so much fun!

Floral Freshness & Fashion

Okay, this bouquet by Brown Paper Design has to be one of my favorites to date. I love the perfect balance of yellow and white. Also the casualness of the bouquet is just so hard to resist if you ask me!

In my opinion, nothing could replace fresh flowers at a wedding, or even in the home. I am not a fan of fake flowers, plants, etc. but I will say that these fabric roses from Allen Company Inc. are a pretty cute option as gifts if you just can't resist!

Summer Freshness

I am sure most of you have seen this by now, but I couldn't resist posting Chelsea's latest party ensemble over at Project Wedding. Amazing! I am so inspired to have a picnic - the colors, the simplicity (i would argue deceptively simple), the flowers, linens, everything is perfect!!!

Heart Full of Mom

I have been a huge fan of Hoot and Heart for sometime and what perfect pictures to post going into this beautiful Mother's Day weekend! I think it has rained almost every day the last month in NYC so these pictures have a bit of mood in them which I love.

This weekend is big for Patrick and me - our first wedding anniversary and my first Mother's Day! I can't believe how much has happened in the last year - we have so much to be grateful for! It is crazy how fast time goes - it seems like yesterday that we were in Jamaica.

I hope you all have an amazing Mother's Day weekend, hopefully you can all hug your mom if not send her lots of love! I have been incredibly lucky this last month - my mom was here in Brooklyn helping me transition into motherhood. Her and my Dad rented an apartment down the street and I have to say it was so much fun having them here with us. My Dad took off early (city life wasn't his thing) but my mom just left this last Wednesday. It was sad to say goodbye - but time to be our little family of three. One thing is for sure - moms are the best!!!

Have a beautiful and lovely weekend!!!

Amble Through Bramble

Amble through Bramble is the blossoming creation of Morgan Levine, a Brooklyn craft maker and designer of gorgeous flowers. Each flower is hand made out of crepe paper (can you believe it? they look real!), hand cut and assembled to become gorgeous flowers, that would make the perfect accessory!

Morgan will be on the Martha Stewart Show today making these beautiful creations.

Thanks Crissy!

DIY Flowers

A while back, A Cup of Jo posted about supermarket wedding bouquets and after finally getting around to looking at the guide on Real Simple I couldn't resist posting a few of my favorites. You could easily get a few bouquets out of $20-30 worth of supermarket flowers!

Pops of Pink

You just can't go wrong with hot pink flowers, they look especially amazing with fresh greens or vibrant oranges. Jeff Leatham's creations are nothing short of awe inspiring.
