Lovely Details.....

Happy Friday everyone! I apologize for not posting anything for a couple of weeks. My life was full of moving chaos, new internship and Vegas. Things are starting to settle down now so I should be able to post more inspiration...... Happy 4th of July and be safe on this crazy weekend!

This wedding was on Amorology and I love all the sweet details this bride has included.

Swooning over Milkglass......

{images via Style Me Pretty}

This is yet another example of why I love Milkglass, and anything antiques. The Ladies over at Style Me Pretty have showcased these DIY centerpieces courtesy of the gals at Custom Even Group. They also have broken down the cost of the center pieces if you are interested in doing something like this yourself.

"White Snowberry - 3.5/stem
Copper colored peony foliage - 2.5/stem
umbrella fern - 3.75/stem
nandina leaves in green/copper and plum - tough to quote per stem!
peach and apricot hypernium berries - 3.00 per bunch
soft bronze calla lilies - 8.00 per bunch (a few go a long way, only use these on a couple tables)
coral passion vine buds and tendrils - 4.50/stem
aged antique colored hydrangeas - 12.00/stem
various garden roses (singing in the rain, fair bianca, evelyn, just joey, caramel antique, and juliet) 4-7.00 per stem
peachy/apricot small spray roses - 4.00/stem
large dahlias, cafe au lait - 4.50/stem

….and a few more types of foliage, wander through your own or a friends garden to gather artistic types of speciality foliage"

Thanks Style Me Pretty!

Jewish Traditions.....

This is one of the most intimate details I think of a Jewish wedding. A Ketubah is a marriage contract between the Groom and his Bride. It states the promises that the couple will uphold during the marriage. The wording is beautiful. So basically the Ketubah is like a modern marriage contract with a little more intimacy.

How beautiful and poetic are those words?........

Save the Dates....

I stumbled across these adorable save-the-dates on Erin Ever After's blog. Like she said "why didn't I think of this?" I am still not sure of what kind of save the dates that I want to send out. I still have plenty of time, till Sept. actually! But these are very tempting!

Homemade is more apealing...

Project Wedding posted this fabulous homemade wedding favor. I find the idea of homemade more appealing than store bought favors. I want to give me guest something with meaning and something they will actually use. I can't remember all the wedding favors that I've gotten and have never used, from a wine corks to coasters. This is much more personal, and made with love. Enjoy!

Do any of you have similar homemade goodies that you've made? Share your stories with me!

Mason Jar many options!

There is something vastly appealing to me about mason jars, maybe it brings up childhood memories for me or the country side of me. That or they are just down right yummy!

Hello and Welcome!

Bonjour! This is my future hubby and I awaiting to see Neil Diamond at the Hollywood Bowl.

This blog site is dedicated to those things vintage, chic, a little country, weddings, and decor! We are planning a non-traditional wedding for next May, even though we are not "officially" engaged. Time is very limited with my schooling so planning ahead is essential. On top of wedding craziness we are trying to fix-up our 1913 mountain cabin.

So welcome, sit back and enjoy! And don't hesitate to email me!
