It doesn’t take much to be inspired by Greece. The landscapes are breathtaking, the lifestyle is one we’d adopt in a heartbeat, and the food is amazing. If the idea of getting married or eloping to Greece sounds like a dream that can’t quite happen because of budget restrictions, no worries. Reg Campbell has always been intrigued with Greece and Greek mythology and wanted to do a shoot like this for sometime now. It is a editorial showcasing the way a small Greece elopement could look on the bank of a river. Check it out. It’s definitely something you could pull off!
We’d all love to have a wedding modeled after one of our favorite stores, no? We’re sure one of those stores, for most of you (us included), would be Anthropologie, right? Well, Johanna’s wedding was heavily influenced by just that lovely store. With food stations serving southern comfort food from her youth, a fire pit for roasting marshmallows, and candle lit mason jars, she wanted to create a warm, inviting atmosphere. A brooch bouquet, chalkboards with poetry, and a table of family wedding photos through the generations, were a few of the details that made the evening truly unique. And the photos by Jeremy Harwell made it all the more beautiful.
Always a fan of the brooch bridal bouquet, especially knowing that she used brooches from her mother and grandmother.
A few weeks ago we shared this glitzy little DIY video with the readers over on Lauren Conrad’s site and thought it’d be perfect to share it here… in case you have yet to see The Great Gatsby and want to glam up a pair of heels just in time for a girls night out at the movies. Or you could just want to bedazzle your wedding shoes. That’s okay too. They’re crazy easy to make and we swear, you may even start doing this to other shoes in your closet (maybe some cute flats?). Anywho, have fun with this one!
We are just full of good news this week. First it was the release of Jen Huang’s new book, and today we’re helping Thea of Hushed Commotion announce the release of her 2013 hand crafted bridal accessories collection. And yeah, they’re obviously all gorgeous! Thea had the wonderful opportunity of working with Jen Huang again to shoot her new look book in Central Park amongst all the blooming cherry blossoms… and we’re thinking it wouldn’t be a special announcement without a fabulous giveaway to go along with it. So get this… we’re going to give away a $250 Hushed Commotion voucher to one lucky reader!
A little sneak peek at what it looked like behind the scenes…
You know the drill. Enter with the form below and we’ll pick one random winner this Friday. Good luck!
