A couple of neat things happened to make S + K’s wedding as amazing as it was. First, Kent proposed during a trip to Europe and during that trip they actually came across his fab midnight blue and black Ted Baker suit, so they knew that color had to be incorporated stat. Then, Stefanie found the perfect fuchsia + glittery gold inspo on Pinterest to go with the theme. And things really got going! Kelsie Pinkerton documented the day, and wait till you hear how they choose her to be their photographer…Read More
When Natalie of Natalie Bowen Designs and her husband transformed their San Francisco studio into the bright and airy space it is now, they realized she had extra room. Having worked with Natalie before, Simone of Simone Lennon Events scooped that space right up as soon as it was available. They both love having another industry creative around… Clearly it makes for an inspired studio! Shannen Natasha Weddings documented all the spectacular deets, and we chatted with each of them about their work.Read More
Alysha + Henry both relocated with their families to Georgia from the west coast back in 2004, but didn’t meet until years later through a mutual friend. They found out they’d actually been crossing paths all those years (!!!) and instantly connected. Naturally they wanted to embrace the place that brought them together, so they found a rural venue with horses and a big oak tree and booked it for their three and a half year anniversary. Thanks to Simply Sarah Photography for sharing the images!Read More
Ah, the many things you can do with sailor stripes! It’s always a treat to see incredible, new things done with classic details (wait till you see the floral ceremony arch in the post). Coty + Ashley Henry of Henry Photography jumped at the chance to put on and photograph a nautical shoot in Ohio and added modern vibes and a Midwest feel. Next thing you know, they were lakeside on a dock at sunset with a team of local talents to make it all happen.Read More
We love backyard weddings, we love beach weddings, and we sure love ‘em both at once. With all the fond memories Claire’s had at her grandparents’ home in Carpinteria, CA over the years, she couldn’t imagine any place better to say I Do. Now, of course, those memories spent with 110 guests + captured by Cara Robbins Studio (remember the Monterey wedding she photographed?) are even sweeter.Read More
Doesn’t it seem like the kitchen gets alllll the love when it comes to building your Wedding Gift Registry? What about poor bathroom!? Getting married is the ideal time to give your space a little update so you can feel like proper adults when you’re brushing your teeth together for the first time as newlyweds.
Numero uno on everyone’s list should be to get organized. Even if you don’t have a ton of storage in your bathroom, you can keep things neat with different jars and storage canisters. We love the classic feel of glass apothecary jars for showcasing more visually appealing bits, but these ceramic Silo Canisters are great for storing all sorts of things that neither you or your betrothed want to look at every day. And the Willoughby Tray is perfect for keeping everything tidy on your counter. (PS. it’s definitely one of our top Gift Registry picks, specifically for it’s versatility!)
Number 2. Add a few small things to your registry to help you relax and enjoy your new life as marrieds! If you have the space to create a nook in your bathroom for something luxurious like floral bath salts or a scented candle, do it! We love the Montana jar for storing and displaying loads of pretty salts and a simple wire basket for keeping washcloths neat.
And one of the most important things to keep in mind, for any room in the house but especially the bathroom, don’t forget to add life. A few pops of greenery nestled into interesting pots suddenly make a boring bathroom feel fresh and alive. And by adding height with the Dundee Floor Planter, you’ll have plenty of room to store your new towels in a beautiful basket. Because brand new matching towels on your Gift Registry is a total luxury that every bride deserves.
Finally, we love the idea of making your bathroom feel thoughtful and lived in by hanging art on the walls. These beautiful brass Hendry frames add just a touch of elegance to even a less refined print or photo. Add a few in different sizes to your registry because we promise you’ll use them throughout your house. Wedding photo, anyone?

It really doesn’t take much to turn a normally sort of sterile space in a beautiful retreat for you and your hubs or wife. And because we can’t leave the bedroom out either, we’ve got our Gift Registry picks for the bedroom over on Crate and Barrel’s blog today too, if you’d like to take a peek!
