It’s Thanksgiving week. We spent the morning obsessing over fall tablescapes. These fall ceremony florals are just too gorgeously festive. Are you feeling the love yet? Eric + Christopher described their New York wedding as rustic, rural, and most importantly… festive. So fast we get in the spirit around here! Thanks to Mikkel Paige Photography for sharing the images.Read More
Things have been crazy here at the 100lc HQ. But after hosting our very own dinner party on Thursday we can finally say we’re. so. ready. for Thanksgiving! If you’re hosting, you’re probably in prep mode for the dinner itself, but don’t forget about creating a warm, inviting space to gather around. Turkey makes a great centerpiece, sure, but make room for flowers, candles, and the rest of the spread too.Read More
A few really rad facts about Zachary + Nicole’s elopement: One, they planned it in three months and road-tripped to their destination. Which is a super cool way to prep for a wedding, if you ask us. They hiked up to a ceremony spot at Ojo Caliente they chose day-of. Nicole made her dress because she found the perfect lace. She also foraged her florals from markets in the area. Being a floral designer + stylist who’s worked with Apryl Ann, she knew was the one to have behind the lens. Okay. Now that we’ve sufficiently set you up, let’s hear their story, shall we?Read More
What goes amazingly well with engagement ring inspiration? Surprise proposals, of course. The ring, the surprise factor, both are pretty essential to successfully popping the Q, in our opinions. When Platinum Jewelry sent us Fred Meyer’s Platinum Love Bridal Collection, we started playing favorites immediately. Here are our three faves AND top three surprise proposal stories to go along with them, just for fun. (Oh yeah, go ahead… Leave this tab open on your other half’s laptop. Sometimes you gotta be obvious.)

Proposal + ring #1: We’ll never forget Megan + Adam’s surprise proposal story. Sure, Megan had an engagement on the mind, but definitely didn’t think it’d happen while she was on location in Malibu, modeling for a gorgeous styled shoot. This platinum diamond ring totally channels their couple style—organic, romantic, and elegant.

Proposal + ring #2: Staging a romantic wedding scene as a backdrop for such a meaningful day is one heckuva plan, but we also can’t forget this creative Catalina Island proposal that captures the spirit of Aaron and his bride. How great is it when an engagement comes off as totally spontaneous, but is actually the result of months of planning on his part? The triple stone ring in platinum with round diamond accents is ultra modern and elegant, but bold and unique for an adventurous bride-to-be.

The creative team styled the bride from our Hamptons beach engagement in the most darling outfit, so we gravitated toward the unique + modern when thinking of a ring style to pair it with. A diamond engagement ring with a unique split shank and round diamond accents seems about right!

Planning a wedding in the city, you can expect to come across a few unique venues. The Cheese School in San Francisco not only nails the perfect mix of urban and lush, it’s the kind of space that any foodie couple could totally embrace as a place to say I Do. It’s got two intimate spaces within it, one that Buzzworthy Events gave a modern and bright feel to and another that called for a moodier vibe. A beautiful venue + to die for eats? BrittRene Photo sure had a lot to capture with this one.Read More
Would you believe us if we said this isn’t a fall wedding editorial? Yeah, Connor + Ben’s rustic wedding was just that incredible. They’d seen Connor’s sister say I Do at Thistle Springs Ranch in Texas a few weeks before he proposed and even though they perused other venues, the space stuck out in their minds for their wedding too. (Believe us, you’ll see why.) Connor’s mom helped them plan an earthy + organic day with a dusty berry color story that’s srsly worthy of channeling for your own events…
