I wanna beach wedding....

I mean come on, there might not be anything better then getting married on the black sands beach in Bali.  And as we quickly approach full on winter, this wedding just makes me want to feel the warm sand under my feet!  Thanks Style Me Pretty for a great real wedding.

Well I am off on vacation to see my family in Atlanta.  This is my most favorite trip of the year as my entire family gets to be together.  I can't say I'm excited to brave the airport traffic, but I'll survive.  For the next week I'm going to leave you with a few of my favorite weddings and inspiration boards.  I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Cup of Tea

I love these pictures from 100 Layer Cake.  Check out the spoons on the cake, very cool.  One of these days I would love to do an Alice in Wonderland themed party and that giant tea cup would be perfect!

Who Needs a Big Wedding?

Sometimes I think people feel like they need to have a giant wedding and invite tons of people.  But sometimes City Hall or eloping can be just as great too!  And who says you can't have the princess dress, great shoes and romance with just the two of you.  I'm pretty sure this wedding from Classic Bride shows you can have all of that and still go down to City Hall.

A Fall Wedding Inspiation Shoot

I gave you a couple sneak peaks last week, as well as our inspiration board, and now here are the pictures!  I am so happy how they all turned out.  Hillary Maybery and I had talked forever about doing a shoot like this, and finally our schedules worked out.   We were so lucky to have newly weds Stephanie and Zac act as our models, and Zac was such a sport!  In addition we collaborated with a few other local vendors that made this shoot happen.  I have featured a few cakes on this blog by Amy Anderson, but this is the first pictures I have gotten of her fantastic wedding cakes.  Also my mother Terry, who owns Bellissimo was nice enough to not only let us take items out of her store but come and help style the shoot. Jamilynn from Vertu did Stephanie's hair and make up, Suzy, owner of Deja Vu, allowed us to take out the fox stole as well as vintage jewelry, and finally Max Monahan captured it all on film.

As for my part, I of course did the flowers, and I was so excited to get lucky and get peonies for the pictures.  Its a rare thing to see this time of year, but with all the other fall flowers they looked great.  I loved doing this photos shoot and Hillary and I have decided to do more, so if you have a great idea for a shoot let me know and maybe we will turn it into reality!  And as always, thanks everyone for all the help it turned out better then I could have imagined.
