Cute alert. This sartorial themed shower from Elisabetta Marzetti + Cristina Di Giovanna is one of the most adorable things we’ve seen in awhile. The concept for the shoot all revolved around a fun activity idea: a sewing class to create a ring cushion for the bride to use on her wedding day. And with that in mind, cupcakes were topped with buttons, spools of thread repurposed as place cards, and vintage measuring tape incorporated into the décor.
Brings new meaning to the phrase “cute as a button!” (Ha! See what we did there?)
Il Profumo dei Fiori’s soft and sweet centerpiece recipe: roses, white hydrangeas, astilbe, scabiosa stellata, and matricaria.
Did you notice the bridesmaids are all wearing button earrings too? Such a sweet detail!

Meeta + Gary’s wedding is the perfect thing to take you out of your hump day slump. It’s full of color, culture, food, drinks, and fun—which all makes sense considering these two love to travel and met while hiking the trail to Machu Picchu in Peru. We especially love how they combined a rustic yet elegant theme with Indian cultural influences—a sitar player at the ceremony, Meeta’s stunning sari, and Bollywood music to entertain their guests. Next Exit Photography did a great job of capturing it all.
That view! Wowee!
Such a beautiful and unique dress. We can’t say we’ve seen anything quite like it before.
These two spent the biggest chunk of their budget on food and wine, because that’s what they love and appreciate, and wanted their friends and family to share in that experience too!
Congrats you two!

After hearing that Susan + Ben run an interior design and architecture firm together in San Francisco, we knew their wedding was going to be full of creative, design-driven touches. And everything from the dress (a vintage frock that Susan reworked) to the florals does not disappoint. But our favorite little detail is probably the paper crown favors that Susan + Ben lovingly hand-cut for each and every guest. You can tell from Edyta Szyszlo’s photos that everyone had a lot of fun with those…
Susan purchased her vintage ‘60s gown from Decades of Fashion in SF, and then added gold lace and fringe trim to jazz it up.
Romantic and soft, with a little bit of quirk added in for good measure… everything we love in a bouquet!
Susan says, I would describe our inspiration and concept to be an end-of-summer, simple and intimate dinner party at an old mansion tucked away in the Redwoods. We wanted the party to be true to us, so we took the traditional wedding concept for a spin and made it a modern celebration that reflected our styles.
Our favorite memory of the night was the moment when Ben and I walked into the dining room as husband and wife to see all our guests wearing their crowns! Ben took out his phone and took a picture of that moment—so cute and special!
Just gorgeous! Congrats Susan + Ben!
