The right lighting can add amazing ambiance to any event.  We definitely follow the philosophy that the light's "housing" should look equally as beautiful as the light it's emitting.  We have some of the below lights in our own homes.  Is it strange that it makes us so happy to come home at night and switch them on?  They are so pretty, modern, and whimsy.  We believe that if you love your home and it's contents so much in everyday life, why on earth wouldn't you incorporate some of these same elements in your wedding or next big event.

 When translating your favorite home look to your event, we suggest keeping your personal style in mind, while also taking note of your venue.

A glamourous glass chandelier used in an outdoor setting is unexpected in the best possible way.

The use of a fancy antique chandelier against the backdrop of a rustic barn is further proof that opposites do attract.

Modern White Wedding.

We love modern decor, so pulling together inspiration for this type of wedding was an easy task.  You can take any venue (from an art gallery to a barn), add all white modern pieces, and the place is instantly transformed.  Now all you have to do is walk down the aisle and celebrate with your family & friends amongst a beautiful backdrop.

Love is in the Air

We aren't huge Valentine's Day girls but we do love a theme.  So in honor of the upcoming day of all things love we thought we'd try to get into the spirit with some images that make our hearts go a flutter.

These shoes knock our socks off!

Just adorable. And those cherry's? Genius.

Depart in Style.

It's time to make your grand exit from the wedding.  There are tons of amazing getaway options.  We've always liked a cute vintage car or a little convertible...

...but why not opt for something a little different?  Ride away from your wedding reception in a vespa, a tandem bike, or a row boat.
