From Australia, With Love.

Our lovely friend Erin moved to Australia a few years back and met the man of her dreams, with almost the same name.  Erin and Eron are adorable together and tied the knot this past September.

The groom created these amazing invitations and menu for their wedding.  This is definitely DIY done right. 

We always love a candy bar, and this one was super cute with it’s bright pops of color.  As with many featured weddings, the details count.  

And we must say, this groom gave his bride the best wedding present a girl could ask for.  Eron secretly planned to have Erin’s best friend, Lisa, fly out from California for their big day.  We can’t think of a sweeter or more thoughtful gift.  Unbeknownst to his bride, Eron had their florist, Sarah, make a bouquet for Lisa as she joined the bridal party for the big day.

A gift like that even tops Erin’s gorgeous gown (we’re literally drooling) by none other then Monique Llhuillier.  And her cute yellow Christian Louboutins are killing us with envy.

The bride tells us that “the venue was actually about an hour outside of Sydney city and obviously not that easily accessible so we wanted to make our guests feel like they had a really fun weekend experience.  We rented a big house in Palm Beach on Saturday and had everyone over for a fun BBQ and drinks. It made the weekend last longer and everyone felt like they were able to get away for a bit and relax.”  We love the idea of extending your one day event into a long weekend trip. 

The gorgeous outdoor affair took place at a restaurant called Peats Bite. The bride told us that “It's on the Hawkesbury River in Sydney and is only accessible by boat or seaplane (no roads). We organized a private ferry charter for all of our guests to and from the venue.”

They definitely got the dance party started with their unique first dance. The song was a mash-up of American and Aussie classics (Born in the USA, Land Down Under, Living in America, California Girls, etc).

Their photographer, Toby Dixon, is a friend of Eron’s and doesn’t usually shoot weddings (he’s a professional photographer for fashion, advertisements, etc).  We think maybe he should start entertaining the idea of capturing more brides and grooms.

We couldn’t be happier for Erin and Eron.  Not only is this couple beyond gorgeous, Erin has the biggest heart in the world.  Sending you two lots of love from California…congrats!

Girl Meets Boy.

Have you always dreamed of a girly pink wedding?  Ruffles, lace, peonies, and cupcakes?  We love these things too, but also feel that incorporating masculine touches will balance out your big day.  Simply add hints of navy to your palate.  It will certainly appease you and your boy.

A Tea Party.

We joined forces with our dear friend Farra, to surprise our very own Tori with a little bridal shower.  Tori is the epitome of the girly girl, so an Alice in Wonderland inspired tea party was what we had in mind.  Our heads were abuzzing with thoughts of mini sandwiches, topiaries, teacups and moss place settings.  

Check back tomorrow to see this inspiration turned to reality.

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!
