lily of the valley

following up on my classic wedding post from yesterday, I thought this delicate lily of the valley flower arrangement was sweet displayed in a violet glass bud vase.

(image, I can't remember where it came from if anyone knows please let me email me)


Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy's wedding dress worn Sept.12, 1953 when she married John F. Kennedy; displayed at JFK Library and Museum in 2003 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their wedding.

Um. Can we say, Classic, Stunning and Elegant all in one?
This petite lady had style.

twigs and heather

Looking to preserve a bit of nature and carry it with you always?
Look no further.
The designers of Twigs and Heather
gather delicate plant life, cast it in silver making magical little pieces that look like they've grown straight out of an enchanted forest.

I think I need one of those birch bark rings asap. Or maybe I can hold out till
Christmas. It is just around the corner, right?
Maybe A. is reading this hint hint.....

Italian Vogue

a little Italian Vogue to start of your day......
Right now we are working on "home improvements". I just finished painting our front hallway, navy blue, and can't help put think that the cover image of the fall Vogue is to DIE for! A hand painted wall of birch trees would be perfect for our guest room but who has the time? Instead, I'm on a mission for similar wallpaper....
Anyone have ideas?
oh and the fashions on Ms. Evangelista are divine.......

Lulu B

I came across this gorgeous 1930's inspired vintage wedding dress from designer Lulu B via Grant-Wiley weddings. The designer took a vintage veil to create the beautiful delicate top piece of the dress.
Oh how I adore.

Wedding Esty treasures.....

How gorgeous is this dress designed by Joan Shum?
I don't think I have ever seen one like it!
I'm in love. Sigh.
It's absolutely fitting for a winter bride, don't you think?

Samantha Sultana fabric flower hair clip is the ideal for that everlasting look of a fresh can dance the night away without worrying if it will wilt or turn brown.

How perfect are these gold oak leaf earrings from Carolinableu? Festive enough for any autumn wedding

Birdcage veils

Vintage birdcage veils make a great alternative to the traditional wedding veil, not to mention, a bit more budget friendly.
Like these 3 styles that I found
And who says you have to stick to the traditional white? I am totally digging this winter brides style....

The talented, Liva Cetti, of The Green Vase, adds her magical touch to these two stunning arrangements fresh from the garden.

Gorgeous, right?
