Tuesday's Garden-Inspired Look ● Celebrating Erdem Moralioglu

There is something charming about garden-inspired weddings.  London-based designer Erdem Moralioglu brings something very fresh and delicate to the bridal fashion world with this flirty lace dress.  Guaranteed to bring out the youthful exuberance of any bride or her leading ladies {a.k.a. bridesmaids}.

Event Styling Tip:
Spring nuptials are our favorite and we suggest couples add special touches of romance to their garden wedding by incorporating whimsical florals, such as peonies, tulips or orchids, think outside of the box by using filigree rustic lanterns for centerpieces, rent shabby-chic inspired china to promote conversation and select pastel linens to achieve a clean look that will capture the true essence of Spring.

Celebrating the blossoming of scented florals, butterflies, soft color palettes and your signature style sets the tone for a gorgeous wedding and the beginning of a new season.  If you could plan a garden-inspired wedding, what "wow" factor would you incorporate?

I Simply Love You ● Happy Valentine's Day!

In honor of Valentine's Day, we had to share with you one of our favorite love songs by the late Minnie Riperton. "Loving You" is a very popular song at many of the weddings we've hosted and I think Minnie sums it up perfectly by simply saying from the heart, "I love you!"

Happy Valentine's Day!
