Detail :: Boy's Ring Girl's Wrist

I came across the loveliest idea! This comes from the wedding of peonies.and.polaroids. Determined to do what felt right, she and her betrothed liked the idea of each looking after the other’s ring until the ceremony. They were never able to understand how or why the best man* came to be in possession of the wedding rings, or a four year old boy*, or a dog for that matter*!

As there weren’t any pockets on her dress trying it around her wrist seemed like the best idea. She had someone tie it on just before the ceremony so there wasn't time for the knot to come undone and for her to lose it, then when we get to the ring exchange The Boy helped her untie it.

*Forever diplomatic I would like to state that there is nothing wrong with these ideas! Just one girl’s opinion.

Oscar White

We watch Hollywood for the latest in fashion styles and trends and Oscar night is the ultimate exhibition. Last night the trend that was hard not to notice was the collection of white dresses that graced the red carpet. I can't help but think these silhouettes will end up in bridal salons next year.

I'm not sure if this wedding was retro or not - but to me, it looks like it's straight out of the sixties. I love the capture of light and movement.

Real Wedding :: Meghan + Bobby (Ceremony}

If there is one thing that every single newlywed will tell you - it's that your wedding day goes by in the blink of an eye. Everything happens in a blur, that's why it's so wonderful to have a photographer as talented as Kirstie capture those special moments. When you receive your wedding album and flip through the photos, the pictures offer a glimpse back in time and act as a reminder of forgotten moments.

Real Wedding :: Meghan + Bobby {The Dress}

I received an early Valentine this year - from none other than Kirstie Tweed of Orange Girl Photographs. I am always so delighted when I hear from her - not only to keep in touch, but because I know, without a doubt, when I open the collection she sends me, I will be completely wrapped in visual delight.

Kirstie sent me photos from Meghan + Bobby's splendid wedding in Banff, Alberta, Canada.

This first set of photos is of Meghan's dress. It's not surprising that it is impeccably beautiful and perfect for her, Meghan is clearly a woman of style.

Get Around to Gift Giving

One of the biggest challenges in planning your wedding is finding just the right gift for the ones you love. You want to buy a gift that is both meaningful and perfect for that person. I thought this was just lovely.

I think my Mom would have treasured this. They also have 'grandma' and 'nana'.

My 8 Year Old Self + Ms. Vera Wang

I love Vera Wang. Who doesn't really? But, today, I love her a bit more. That's because she's not only made me happy, but she's made the little girl inside me skip a little step and twirl my skirt!

You see, when I was young, the biggest passion in my life was playing Barbies with my sister. Hours and hours and hours of my childhood were devoted to adoring my Barbie dolls. (See proof of my early passion here.)

And now, the impeccable and revered Vera Wang has designed a special edition Barbie doll bride - The Romanticist Barbie. The 'doll captures the luxury, impeccable detailing, and superior workmanship that define Vera Wang.' ~Sigh~

She even has an engagement ring!

I wish I could see her shoes...

Um... honey? SexyHusband? My birthday is right around the corner...
