Be Inspired III

I have loved hanging out with Emily of Peach & Pearl this week..a huge thank you for all her hard work putting together some fantastico inspiration boards just for us. I hope you have all loved them too!
So for the last time (this week) over to Emily…

For my last board, I imagined an intimate, sit-down dinner with your closest family and friends that could be held just as easily in a loved one’s backyard or the patio of your favourite restaurant.  While not as rock and roll as some celebrations I could have put together, I think this board really reflects what I feel is the heart of Rock ‘n Roll Bride – not bowing to wedding convention, but truly having the wedding that best reflects you as a pair and your relationship.  Keep things simple and handmade with potted herb favours, a hosta and lady slipper bouquet, breadstick and olive oil centrepieces, pigs in a blanket at the cocktail hour, and a short, sassy dress for the bride.

Thank you again, so much, for having me this week, and to Kat for inviting me on to her lovely blog!  If you’d like to see more boards and other style + design + wedding musings, I’m over at Peach & Pearl.  I also design custom inspiration boards through my Etsy shop, and would be delighted to work with you to put one together.  If you’re interested, you can see the details here and purchase here.

City Chic

I am loving these city chic engagements submitted by Scotty Perry from Think Photographics. What a cool, fun, gorgeous couple these guys are.  Joe’s suit is from a thrift store which automatically makes them awesome in my book!
I can’t wait to feature their wedding after it happens in May – I just know it’s going to be a good one!

Gorgeous Dresses + Umbrellas

I don’t like to over post stuff that is already on other blogs, but seriously these Bridesmaid dresses + those umbrella shots? It is impossible for me not to. Sorry!
You’ll want to check out these rest of this wedding, especially if you love shabby chic or vintage tea party decor.

Crazy In Love (With These)

Oh how I love Amelia Lyon..she gives us such gorgeous images as these.

This wedding is quite simply stunning! (seriously someone buy me a thesaurus for my birthday.)
Need more of these in your life?

And that ring shot? So different to all the ring shots you see around, and yet sooo beautiful!

Victoriana

Check out the amazingly dark, gothic-chic wedding of Good Charlotte guitarist, Billy Martin.  I not only am a little bit crazy about the Bride’s dress, designed by Kirstie Kelly Couture, but the amazing vintage victoriana decor is actually sending me into a whirl of girlie excitement.
