Country club wedding in Las Vegas | Photo by Gideon Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=76762

It’s not every day you see a Vegas wedding pop up here on 100lc. You have to be pretty genius to show off all the quirks that make Las Vegas so epic, but incorporate classic wedding elements like romantic details, lotsa flowers, and little tributes to the couple too. If you’re toying with the idea yourself, look no further than Erin + Chris, who totally pulled it off in their personalized vintage Vegas wedding captured by Gideon Photography.

Despite last minute changes in venues and weather, planner + bridesmaid Courtney of When Pigs Fly Events says the whole thing was incredible: The clouds cleared up 30 minutes into the first look and we lucked out to have spectacular photos and a gorgeous ceremony. It took the heat right out of the Vegas September air. It couldn’t have been more beautiful.

Personal touches for Chris, a scientist + cyclist: bicycle themed artwork + science elements like margarita salt test tubes.

Courtney’s description of the reception:

Guests dined at tables numbered and named for vintage Vegas hotels. Each setting had a fact card about the vintage hotel – Riviera, El Cortez, Stardust, etc – as well as a test tube filled with flavored margarita salts. Layers of Lovely did an outstanding job with the florals, mixing our vision of the desert with found scientific pieces. Test tubes, handpainted succulents, cacti, and proteas created the most incredible centerpieces.

Erin’s must-haves: dancing, tacos, margaritas, Elvis, and lotsa vintage Vegas. The groom’s only request: an ice cream sundae bar. Courtney says, It was a pretty awesome list to work with.

You know it’s a good week when two floral crowns crop up on the 100lc blog. First, in yesterday’s gorg lilac shoot full of French-floral-goodness, and now in these images by photog Elisabetta Marzetti. We’re thinking we may need to craft a few ourselves this weekend… you know, just ‘cause. Let’s head to Italy this morning, shall we?

Elisabetta says, We laid a typical Italian smorgasbords buffet, surrounded by rosemary, sage and other aromatics, on a 19th century bread-bin. A variety of cheeses and jams, salami, sausages, walnuts, olive oil, wine, fresh vegetables and various types of bread.

As dessert we prepared whipped cream sponge cakes, decorated with flowers and fruits. Every true Italian wedding would also provide little favors and a small pouch of confetti for the guests. We chose little pads embroidered with the bridegrooms’ initials, and organized a special nook for this. The wedding bands were laid on a little handmade lace cushion.

The location: A 12th century ex-monastery in historic Umbria, in central Italy. Looks like quite the place to hang out for the day, we think.

They used an antique door with pewter vases, crystal cloches, and romantic flatware that contrasted beautifully with the rustic wood. And the florals: David Austin roses, pale pink peonies, white and coral peonies, viburnum, scilla, scabiosa, buttercup

Calligraphy workshop by LH Calligraphy | Photo by Shalyn Nelson of Love | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=76681

You might’ve guessed already, buuut we’re all about that calligraphy. Those romantic loops and curls just sweeping from one letter to the next… what better way to send a letter or make an announcement? As it turns out, the art of calligraphy is not just for artists alone, anyone can give it a go (but a good teacher helps). Laura Hooper Calligraphy shares her talents with people all around the US and even in Toronto, and recently put on a lovely workshop just outside of Austin, designed by Katy of Without Wax, Katy.

Thanks to Shalyn Nelson of Love, The Nelsons for the photo recap:

Katy says, The Union on Eighth is a stunner all on its own—no question about it. But when it just so happens to be that time of year when both coral charm peonies and café au lait dahlias are in season, it makes for a wake-me-up-I-must-be-dreaming environment that you just have to see for yourself! 100% agreed!
