As you know from yesterday's post, when I saw Pamela Lerfald & Nick Davis's wedding photos I quickly jumped on board with doing a 2 day feature of this adorable couple from engagement to wedding! If you missed the Tour de Fat inspired Beers & Bike engagement session check it out here! Now onto the main event, yes?! Keeping with the bicycle theme, Pam & Nick expertly wove 2 wheeled fun machines into a well refined slightly off beat gorgeous wedding. Bike elements were incorporated everywhere from escort card displays, table numbers, guest gifts to even their unique take on a wedding cake! This wedding has everything from a sweetly done first look to completely lovely photography which really gives you a strong feel of not only the emotions but the moody weather our couple faced! Pam is a doey eyed stunner whom the camera seems to be utterly smitten with and Nick is simply old school handsome. This wedding has a lot of wonderful simple touches that prove not every wedding needs to be dripping in crystals to make it chic.

Rounding out the week, I figured I would end on a place that is calming & serene, like Lake Michigan! This little styled shoot has some great touches that are totally borrow worthy for those considering a seaside inspired theme for their wedding days. Perhaps my favorite touch over all is one well tied together element...Netting! The use of the netting on the table top is fantastic & I complete love the idea of it! Carrying that element on, what you might not realize at first, our bride's birdcage veil...yup thats netting! Fastened with some well placed pearl touches, this takes the idea of a veil and brings it right into the wheel house of the seaside theme. Lastly, the use of twine (like netting!) with seashell touches wrapped around the bouquets brings everything full circle! Have a Fantastic Sea Dreamy Weekend Everyone!!

First order of business, Happy 4th of July everyone!! This is literally one of my most favorite holidays of the year if you can believe it. The Americana, the parades, the food, the drinking, the hanging out together laughing & of course, the fireworks! For the last few years we have been heading up to Stowe, Vermont for the 4th and it truly has become a staple in our lives. Beyond the town's beauty lays small town America personified. Stowe takes their Independence Day quite seriously here with everything from well done games for children to live bands playing while outstanding local food wafts through the air. The firework display here is one of the best I have ever had the privilege to see. Perhaps my absolute favoritest part (yes bad grammar but I don't care), the explosion of the fireworks actually echos off the mountain ranges. It truly is, AMAZING!

I had been dogging Casey for sometime to submit a damn wedding to me already!! Finally, I was greeted in my inbox with a submission from Casey and oh how funny can life be... Not only did I love the super Manhattan featured wedding, but the reception took place at.... PUBLIC! Now allow me a small digression for a moment. Hubby & I did finally have our VIP experience at PUBLIC that we had won. With not the slightest bit of embellishment, it was by far one of the nights of our lives. It was....perfection. From Chef Brad, to various staff members there (PS-our waitress was amazing, she really really needs to write a food blog, like now!), to the mega delicious food, to all the wonderful things we got to experience while there, it was beyond a home run. When I saw Casey's submission of a wedding at PUBLIC all those lovely feelings came floating back. Having a close connection with PUBLIC, I thought it would be a rare great opportunity to actually hear a bit from the vendor side of things too. I reached out to the fine ladies and asked for a bit of commentary from their side as well, and they were all to happy to volley up some great stuff about Randi Anderson & Karlo Pastrovic's wedding! So now that I have written a mega intro, allow me to STFU and let you guys get to strolling through this absolutely lovely New York City wedding!!
