DIY bouquet and boutonniere classes with Creative Bug | Photo by Scott Clark Photo |  100 Layer Cake

As promised, today we’re excited to announce the second class we shot with Creative Bug, which compliments our DIY Bouquet class so nicely… DIY Boutonnieres! Our gal Emily from Shotgun Floral was with us for this one too, and it’s a real cutie.

We loved the straw flowers she chose for our classes so much, that we decided to create some desktop and iPhone wallpapers inspired by the bouquets and boutonnieres we teach you how to make in our classes. Jazz hands! You’ll see links to download the files below each photo. Biggest thanks, as always, to our semi-in house photographer Scott Clark Photo, for shooting these pretty images for us.

For this Maui destination wedding shoot, the talented team below wanted to show couples what a luxury ocean view property on the coast of Maui like the brand new Montage Kapalua Bay (just launched in June!!) is all about. Lindsay of LVL Weddings & Events says they were going for a tropical destination wedding with a luxurious but organic spin. With a little gold, lots of greenery, and these beautiful snaps by Brandon Kidd Photography… Let’s just say we’re totally ready and willing to check this place out for ourselves!

PS: If you’re looking for Maui-based vendors, this shoot is chock full of ‘em.

Ahh! So creative. The team used elephant leaves and calligraphy by Miss B Calligraphy to create the program + menus.

Lindsay says, Using local tropical greenery and florals of natural greens and whites we were able to use the blue ocean and cliffs as our backdrop to this neutral palette. Props to Maui-based Wildheart on these fabulous tropical arrangements!

Love how fresh + natural this cake looks! Of course we could’ve expected it to be a beauty – remember the rainbow Hawaiian cake by Maui Sweet Cakes that we featured awhile back?!

We have to admit: our love for unique rings only grows with every one we see. There can never be too many options, which you need in order to find the one that speaks to you the most. Once you decide, something as meaningful (and pretttty!) as your ring should definitely be protected. Jewelers Mutual® can take care of it, so you can wear that ring without ever thinking about what you’d do if the worst were to happen.

One can lose a lot of hours browsing the web for gorgy rings like the finds above! (Remember when the LC team went ring shopping?! So fun.) A couple faves are #5, an early 1900s Edwardian diamond bypass engagement ring, set in a platinum top and surrounded by 14K gold curving, or #6 – a Monique Péan stacking ring with that stunning bezel-set baguette diamond. Amazing.

With a ring that’s likely your most meaningful piece of jewelry (if not possession) you need to know that it will be OK no matter what. We hate to say it but damaged, lost, and stolen rings happen too often to skip insurance! There are many options out there – but we find that the most comprehensive jewelry coverage is offered by 101 year-old Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company – as insuring jewelry is ALL they do.

By opting for Jewelers Mutual’s jewelry insurance you won’t have to worry – because if something happened to the ring, your coverage includes repair or replacement with “Same Kind and Quality” – meaning that you’ll never have to deal with a lesser quality or totally different one than the original.

How it works: Jewelers Mutual takes care of the details. No dealing with confusing policies. They’ll work with the jeweler of your choice – someone you trust + feel comfortable with – to replace or repair jewelry should the need arise. They enlist their insurance experts to note every detail of each ring – like cut, carat, color, clarity – so that any repair or replacement work needed will create a ring that’s as indistinguishable as possible from the original. Insurance is easy to obtain as you can get a quick quote and apply right on their website.

Now, breathe a sigh of relief and tell us which of these lovelies you have your eye on!
