Quick Palette: Plum and Grey


There is so much to love about this palette - its neutral without being predictable and the plum is so unexpectedly lovely paired with gray. I am not a huge fan of purple shades and this makes me want to paint a room in this palette! Not to mention, the picture is so fantastic in every way. I hope you all have a great weekend! {Image via 100 Layer Cake}

Farmhouse Wares


Last week I came across the most lovely little online store called Farmhouse Wares, which has some charming items that could so easily be used for wedding decor. How cute are those zinc placecards? You write on them with chalk, so they can easily be wiped off and reused. It begs the question - I wonder if you could get a calligrapher to write in chalk? And I am so close to buying those cupcake stands for no reason at all....happy birthday to me?

Real Wedding: Punta de Mita, Mexico


Alex and Matt's destination wedding in Mexico has such a relaxed and sun-kissed vibe, it makes me wish I was married on a beach! They gave away fans to all of their guests so they could stay cool during the beach ceremony and at the reception there was a cigar bar and a fire circle for roasting s'mores. And it goes without saying, I adore all of the succulent centerpieces and the star lanterns - perfection! {All photographs by the talented Elizabeth Lloyd}


DIY Project: Cupcake in a Jar


This project is so adorable (and looks so tasty) I could hardly wait to share it with you! I think just about anything in a mason jar is instantly charming, but red velvet cupcakes? Such a lovely idea. The spoons tied to the jar with bakers twine is really a finishing touch and I am pretty sure these would be perfect for showers, wedding favors, even hostess gifts. You can find all the instructions and many more pictures on the fabulous cakies blog. And as the stickers say - enjoy!


Real Wedding: San Francisco


Shannon and Pratap both work at Google, and for their San Francisco wedding they did an amazing job of blending traditional American and Indian wedding elements! The Foreign Cinema served as the venue for the event, and all of the vintage film equipment proved to be perfect props for some wedding images. My favorite weddings are always those where you feel like you get to know a couple by looking at their photos, and this is certainly one of those instances. The beautiful images were taken by Sara of onelove photography and the rest of the vendors are listed below (plus, you can see more images on the onelove photography blog):
