A Jubilee Event: Cinco de Mayo Inspired Wedding

Happy Cinco de Mayo! In honor of today’s festivities we wanted to share some Cinco de Mayo inspiration in this shoot conceptualized by Carla Ten Eyck (a lover of her strong Mexican heritage) and collaborated on by a team of fabulous vendors. Originally featured on Style Me Pretty many moons ago, this inspirational shoot still tugs at my heart as one of my favorites. The colors, the simplicity yet complexity, and all the goodies nestled within the alter that Diana & Tony worked on together. Enjoy!

Top Five Spa-Style Bachelorette Party Ideas

TopFiveSPA

Now that wedding season is kicking into full swing, bridal showers and bachelorette parties are starting to fill up our calendars. We love planning bachelorette parties because we get to let loose and really have fun. One of our favorite ways to celebrate the bride is with a spa-style party. It’s easy to customize a spa party to your personal style, but there are a few things we agree are must-haves: Champagne cocktails, pretty cotton robes (we love the Plum Pretty Sugar collection!) and fresh fruit popsicles. Yum! Get everyone together in a super glam space and let the primping and pampering begin!

A Jubilee Event: Emily & John at The Eugene O’Neill Theatre in Waterford, Connecticut

Our favorite weddings are abundant in personal details and nods to the couple getting married that day.  Emily, whom you might recognize from Southern Weddings Magazine and Blog, and John’s wedding was nothing short of personal notes of who they are! We were there to ensure all of her details were in place and the day went off without a hitch–all except for theirs of course. It was a privilege to be present for such a beautiful day. Get ready for the photos below, because your eyes are in for a treat!

Lots of happiness and hugs being sent your way, Emily and John! XO
