A Very Sweet 13!

Today I am LOVING this post from Amy Atlas' blog, Sweet Designs.

I am DYING over this, y'all! I really needed some fantastic-ness after my horror show of a day.


It really is the only way to describe this little lovely from one of my event idols, Preston Bailey. By the by, I am dying to take his class. I just have to find it in my area...

Without further adieu, I give you this. Happy Wednesday!

Don't. You. Just. LOVE!

Movin on Up!

Hello, my doves!

Some big news for you. In an effort to streamline my life and my business, I have decided to combine this blog with Holy, Matrimony!. I think this move will be a great one! I love parties and events (obvs!) and I think it will be great to move this into a more "lifestyle-y" blog while promoting the work I'll be doing. I'll have so much more to say...

So what's to become of Holy, Matrimony!? Well, lovelies, over the next few days HMat will be changing, growing and morphing into something new and exciting! More news on that over the next few days!

Thanks for listening, dolls. I really feel so much better, like a big weight is off my shoulders...The chip? Well, that's still there.

Etsy Love: Serendipity

Ah, Serendipity indeed! I came across this fantastic designer this am on my daily Etsy crawl and I was blown away! Among the myriad of lovelies in this brill little shop from Saint Louis, I found some really amazing vintage inspired finds. I thought I'd share them with all of you!

I love these so much, I could just eat them! But I won't. I am constantly looking for attractive, stylish destination invites. I'm really loving the vintage inspired save the dates. Travel advertisements from the 40's-early 60's are really something. I find I pull inspiration from them quite a bit. And that boarding pass?! I die!

I am a huge fan of this!! Once upon a time, there was a couple with several family members attending the wedding in the states from all over the world. She needed two sets of invites, as well. We searched and searched for a passport inspired invite! If only we'd found this! More importantly, while I am not usually a big fan of rhinestone encrusted invites, I really like this. I find it just subtle enough to be elegant and not overpowering.

And, because my lovely friend is having a Vegas wedding and I have Vegas on the mind, I thought I'd show you these:

Be still my heart, a scratch off save the date?! You can't be serious?! Oh, am I ever! I am LOVING these so hard right now, I could just pass out from the brilliant! Couldn't you?

So, take my advice and get your cute little bride-y behind over to that Etsy shop and get a load of the goods!

Perhaps You Noticed...

...that things look a bit different around here. Well. Things are different. I am working out a few ideas and trying to spruce the place up a bit. I'm headed in a slightly new direction and I am trying to figure some things out! I hope you'll bear with me as I shake things up a bit.

And away we go!

If You Thought...

...that things looked a bit odd around here, you'd be right. I am trying a bunch of new things here and at Renegade Soiree. I'm getting ready to take this whole crazy thing to the next level. So, for the next few weeks we are going to be trying some new things and sprucing up the place. I hope you'll come along for the ride! Hopefully I'll have some big news to share with you soon.

Away we go!

A Whole New World

I think I just found my new favorite place.

Umm, hello McFly! How freaking fab is this?! Furbish studio is located in sunny Raleigh, NC and might just be home to the most brilliant collection of interior lovelies I have ever seen. In ever!
Don't believe me? Check out her blog. I am simply dying for her online shop to be up and running. I will spend way too much money purchasing way too many beautiful things. I can feel it.

Seriously darlings, her blog is great. Full of inspiration. And these great pillows with coral on them. And this fabric. I die!

Oh, why can't I live in Raleigh, NC?!

Hello, Darlings!

Meet my new wedding magazine obsession!

This is one of Canada's premier wedding publications. They cater to "high-style, decadent weddings". I love! Talk about inspiration! Check out these fantastic links:


Swoon! Check out their fab website here and the editor's blog here.

I would've loved to post some pictures here, but I hadn't the time to ask properly. I don't break the rules, folks!
