1. A Sneak Inside The Jewelry Box Of Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2015 Bridal Collection

    I've been to my share of fashion shows, I've sat in my chair, I have been wow'd, and I have applauded just like everyone else around me. Its not until this past bridal fashion week that I got my first uncontrollable set of fashion related chills, all at the hand of the one and only, Monique Lhuillier. You're probably not too terribly surprised at this statement, Monique being a permanent favorite in the world of all things wedding gown gorgeous, however what I was personally delighted with was how the chills simply grew dress, after dress... after dress! The mix of hues, the silhouettes, the details, even gorgeous sleeve wedding dresses made their presence felt!! Monique Lhuillier's Fall 2015 Bridal Collection is inspired by her very own private jewelry box, one that contains a true treasure trove of special beauties. A signature to Monique's designs in general is felt even more strongly in her fall 2015 bridal collection, the ability to be effortlessly romantic yet powerfully bewitching. Beading & embroidery were the true stars of each new design, while beautiful silhouettes in the likes of sheaths to softly flowing ball gowns danced in a mix of hues from gold, mint, lavender and primrose. Monique Lhuillier's newest collection has the 'IT' factor, that intangible that is going to captivate each future bride to be, swelling her head with sleepy visions of romantic perfection, surprising themselves at their deep desire to don such refined beauty. I kid you not that as I exited the show, I immediately called my husband reporting that we are going to have to renew our vows very soon, simply so I would have reason to wear just one of these enchanting beauties.

    You guys know I am not a gusher, I'm really not, but every now and again there is a wedding, an engagement session or styled shoot where pic after pic is just.....oh my! Today's orchard engagement session. from Leah Marie Photography, is literally adorable, frame after frame! I am a sucker for real giggles and smiles that simply can not be contained, 2 key things the Heather Hannam & William Beckett have in spades! As if their beautiful personas weren't enough, enter the stylings of Madam Palooza, who crafted the most dreamy of worlds within the orchard at the Lorimar Winery, complete with a blanket picnic setup, cruiser bike, ladder filled with vintage details and all sorts of other wonderfully whimsical details. From A to Z this is easily a favorite engagement session of mine this year, and I am pretty sure Heather & William will steal your heart too!

    Well one things is for absolute certain.... I am now utterly dying now at the thought of a real mill wedding in an old mill! Thanks to Sara Smile Photography and her wonderfully romantic styled session at Slater Mill in Rhode Island, my creative juices are running wild! Slater Mill is a gorgeously restored water powered textile mill which produced cotton yarn from 1793 to 1829, which still houses a lot of the original detailing and trinkets. Naturally a few of these vintage trinkets {and their surroundings} found their way into the decor, but perhaps the best nod to this mill wedding is the cotton infused wedding bouquet in the most delicious of autumn hues. I have a pension for rustic industrial interior design and when I saw a lovely styled shoot like this carried out in such a setting, well, lets just say, get your pining fingers ready! Romantic, swoony and wonderfully understated in just the right ways, this mix of real world come old, is a blend that is sure fire wedding heaven.
