Here’s one for all you brides that love the idea of boho, but want to glam it up a bit. Alanna Lock, stylist and blogger at Hey Girl, wanted to create a bohemian-fusion with modern, minimalist elements and tribal details. She teamed up with Love Beth Events + photog Bentinmarcs and together they whipped up this lovely little setup in the Kuitpo Forest of South Australia.

Make that *everybody’s* favorite summer wine, right?! There’s something so lovely and luscious about a glass of peachy rosé on a warm evening, (or over lunch whilst gazing at the Mediterranean Sea). So what if you’re not in the South of France! Your mind-set is totally right there.

You’ve probably seen that gorgy photo above from Martha, ya? And this adorable print? We can’t get enough either.

So in celebration of this fine beverage, we thought we’d share a few bottles that we’ve had this year that you might like too. Some you can find at your local grocery store for under $10 and some fall into the special occasion category. But what is summer if not one big special occasion?

8 great rosés for summer entertaining and celebrations | see the links on 100layercake.com/blog

(You’ll have to forgive our descriptions… we don’t pretend to be wine experts of any sort!)

1. Commanderie de la Bargemone Provence – The lightest in color and crispest in flavor.
2. Domaines Ott – The gold standard for perfect, blushy color and delicious, drinkability. If you’ve never had it, come up with a reason to splurge!
3. Whispering Angel – Another very reliable, readily available option that doesn’t require quite such a generous wine budget. Sometimes it’s even on sale at Whole Foods.
4. Domaine St. Aix – A perennial favorite for it’s classic, bright flavor and color.
5. Domaine de Vaccelli Ajaccio Unu – A stunning rosé from Corsica. Much harder to find, but if you do get a chance to try the wines of this island region, we highly recommend it!
6. Artea Alpes De Haute Provence – Total grocery store find, perfect for weeknight drinking, and available at Whole Foods for $9!
7. Hudson Bellamy – Would you blame us for buying this bottle just for the label? Quite a nasty habit we’ve picked up over the years. The actual wine didn’t disappoint either.
8. 90+ Cellars – Another great weeknight drinker, and generally sold for under $10.

And for another divine idea, try ordering a mixed case of bottles so that you can get to know this beautiful wine from a connoisseur’s perspective. Perfect excuse for a lil’ end of summer party this month. (An everyday selection available here.) Or if you’re in a hurry to pick some up for the weekend, don’t be afraid to pop into your local wine store. A good recommendation makes all the difference.

Chin chin!

Did you catch our other modern wedding on le blog this morning? It’s pretty rad. But you gotta have options, so we’ve got a sweet, modern Chicago wedding by Katie Kett Photography to sail into the weekend with. And for those of you planning, bride Jessie sums the process up pretty darn well…

To me, planning a wedding is just a process of making a bunch of decisions. Decisions that might seem easy or even silly for a normal human, but for some reason as a bride they become these crazy important, make or break choices. You don’t think you will become that bride and then one night you find yourself on the floor with $500 worth of sequin tablecloths you’ve ordered on the internet, questioning if the gold is too “gold gold” or if maybe the “champagne gold” is not gold enough. Lucky for me I had a limited amount of time and a budget to keep me in check, but you get the idea.

It made more sense to use pieces that could actually serve as décor in their home, so things like a decorative case from West Elm that they planned to use on their living room table were purchased as opposed to overly wedding-themed items.

Jessie loved the white walls and chandeliers in the venue, and Alex loved that it was an old factory, turned loft. Win-win!

Some parting words: Our choice of caterer and DJ kept our guests having a blast. Our wedding coordinator, Ashley La Fleur, kept me worry free. And our wonderful photographer, Katie Kett, captured it all perfectly. It really was the best day of our lives and we couldn’t be happier.

Congrats J + A!
