cozy night in

it's cold in milano. fall is here with winter creeping up around the corner. oh how i love warm homes with fireplaces going and yummy meals to cook and share with loved ones. that's pretty much how we spent our weekend.
monday - long tiring day, so tonight im tucking in early.
there is a new kitty in the house waiting to be cuddled and an old childhood favorite of mine waiting to be read.........sigh. heaven to my ears after a long day.
what's your favorite way to spend a cozy autumn evening?

botanical bride


keeping with the plant life theme from friday, how about a greenhouse wedding?
I have to admit, I'm quite fond of greenhouses.
My favorite time to visit is in the dead of winter.
It's like entering in bottled up rain forest. I wish I could bottle the smell and carry it with me always.
when I was little my favorite adventures with my mom where to the new york botanical garden.
my eyes would widen as soon as we approached the conservatory.
what is your favorite greenhouse location?

a bride in ruffles





A little Milwaukee wedding I found by surprise on flickr.
Ruffles Ruffles, love you lots although not always easy to pull off, however, I think this bride looks radiant.
My favorite part about this wedding besides the sweet looking couple is the cityscape, almost looks like a European city, who knew!

go prom night


going prom night on your bridesmaids? (see yesterday's post here)
why not join them?
a wrist corsage could be a chic alternative to the traditional bridal bouquet (not to mention budget friendly)
as long doesn't resemble the one you wore to your high school prom
orchids anyone?
(need visual? refer to photo above)
just check out this stylish little pixie bride sporting a wrist corsage

venetian masks


No tacky New Year's Eve accessories.
Instead, elegant black and white venetian masks.

Think Truman Capote's famous black and white ball

wedding portraits


Off center, an unusual composition for a bridal portrait that really works. Don't be afraid to break the "traditional" pose, mix it up. My advice, get a few traditional snaps to satisfy the need but break the wedding photography cookie cutter mode find a photographer with a unique vision. Here are a few of my favorites to gather inspiration.
