The Carondelet House vow renewal | photo by Joyce Kim

Aren’t you guys glad it’s Friday? Best day of the week. But before we officially start our weekend, we have a sweet vow renewal to share. Christine + George tied the knot at city hall three years earlier, and had since dreamed of celebrating their union with a big, white-dress wedding. So with Joyce Kim Weddings and Laura Izumikawa Photography there to make the day extra magical, C +G said their I Do’s once again with 65 of their loved ones there to witness it this time. Their cutie pie daughter Emmalyn was included in the festivities too as the flower girl. It’s romantic, intimately beautiful, and so full of warmth.

Christine walked down the aisle to “I Can Give You the Starlight” by Novello and Hassall (sung by Jeremy Northam in Gosford Park).

The venue, Carondelet House in L.A., is a renovated brownstone that has gone through legal battles and restorations, while still maintaining its 1920s mystique. The wooden floors, rusted windows, and original artwork made it the place for Christine + George.

Love it when a bride’s favorite moment from the day is captured on camera. For Christine, it was dancing the last dance of the night with George while holding their little girl together.

Paper to Petal book

All of these past posts on le blog probably tipped you off to our major love affair with paper flowers…

Brittany and Paul’s wedding / watercolor paper flowers by Kelli Murray / paper flowers by Lyndie Dourthe / paper flower centerpiece video tutorial / handmade flowers from The Green Vase / wedding anniversary by Knot and Pop

But what’s not to love? They’re gorgeous, always in season, and you can save them long after your wedding day or whatever other celebration you use them for. That’s why we’re so very excited to introduce husband and wife team Thuss + Farrell’s brand new book Paper to Petal. It’s so new it’s not even out until Tuesday (you can preorder here). But we got our hands on an advanced copy and thought we’d give you all a little sneaky peek inside…

And btw, this book was a true labor of love for Rebecca Thuss + Patrick Farrell. These two did it all—they created, styled, photographed, authored, and designed the book, crafting their little hearts out in the process.
