Happy Mother’s Day, guys! We hope all of you are getting your brunch on, and enjoying the day with your mamas or littles. Now pardon the interruption, but we just had to take a sec to show you this stunning Mother’s Day tablescape from The Proper Pinwheel and Sally Mae Photo. It was the DIY floral MOM backdrop that really took our breath away, but the whole thing is full of sweet whimsical, and rustic brunchy goodness.
Wood-burned place cards attached to sweet ivory and pink carnation stems doubled as favors for guests.
The floral MOM backdrop is crazy affordable and comes together in less than 30 minutes. Check out the DIY instructions over on The Proper Pinwheel.
Arrangements of carnations, poppies, sweet pea, peonies, and garden roses help keep things feminine and simple!
What a beautiful shoot… Now go off and enjoy your Mother’s Day, everyone!

All we had to see was Jaclyn’s gold sequin wedding dress to know she was a girl after our own hearts. (Jaclyn girl, you look glamorous!) It just goes to show that when you let your wedding be a representation of your own personal style—and not what you think a wedding is supposed to look like—you can’t go wrong. So with Brittany Mahood and her camera in tow, these two focused on creating an intimate, stylish, and romantic evening, with good food and drinks to be enjoyed by all.
Jaclyn’s bridal bouquet was inspired by a jewel tone shoot she spotted on our blog! How do you like that?! The ladies at Academy Florist constructed it using different variations of roses and explosive greenery.
It’s all in the details, yes? Love the trailing ribbons on the ladies’ bouquets.
Jaclyn says, Being a wedding planner myself I often found myself wanting to have it all—and thinking I should have it all. In the end we decided to keep the decor simple and let our venue do the talking.
Their love story: Adam and I met ten years ago, when we were just kids. We were elated to find out we were expecting after about six years dating. Shortly after, Adam proposed in the comfort of our home while our then one-year-old daughter was sleeping. He surprised me by offering me the ring of my dreams—actually the ring I had used as an unattainable sample of the style of ring I wanted—and saying the most beautiful words I have ever heard. We then planned our wedding slowly over the next two and a half years.
Congrats you two!

We’re on the cusp of another gorgeous spring weekend, guys and gals. (It’s soooo close we can almost taste it!) So to kick off this Friday, we thought we’d share a very fashionable inspiration shoot from Vasia Photography and Style Social Events. If you you’re still honing in on your wedding day style, you’ll want to take note of the ethereal gowns, delicate lace, and bejeweled accessories.
Vasia Photography sure made the most of all the beautiful flowers starting to bloom around Vancouver by shooting in this stunning outdoor space!
