It would be kinda hard to shoot on the canals of Venice and not have it turn out gorgeous. Gondolas passing, quaint sidewalk cafes, centuries old architecture—enough said. But even so, Heather Waraksa and Chic Weddings really outdid themselves with this bit of bridal inspiration. It’s dark, mysterious, elegant, and distinctly European.
Gold calligraphy on black paper always gets us. Love.
We’re guessing that one of the best parts of tying the knot in Italy has got to be the cuisine. That squid ink pasta is looking mighty tasty.
Hello, McQueen! Heather says, We wanted to show that a black wedding dress doesn’t need to fall into the category of gothic wedding. It can be very charming, elegant, yet different.
Thanks to everyone below for sharing this beautiful shoot with us!

Oh boy. It’s been an exciting couple of weeks around these parts! Per ushe, we shared so many pretty weddings (like this quintessential Cali soiree). And then we partnered up with Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company for a girly trip downtown to do some engagement ring shopping (and macaron tasting). And last but not least, there was our two-week streak of giveaways to celebrate our five-year anniversary. So. Much. Fun. Congrats to all of our lucky winners!
So before we take off for the weekend, we wanted to give a little shout out to all of our lovely readers aka you guys! Thanks for reading along with us these past five years and just for being all around awesome. Srsly, you guys are the best.

We can all agree that we loooove pretty lingerie, right?
