Artistic Spirits: One Love Photo
Posted by Jeannie. Filed under Photography

I stumbled upon (no pun intended) One Love Photo and was just struck by the photographer’s beautiful, creative and artistic vision — and images. These shots were taken in Isla Mujers, Mexico, a fantastic backdrop for creating stunning images!

Photographer Heather Gilson uses a variety of camera and techniques to create the images, and says she lives for “beautiful mistakes.” Bravo!

Modern Romance in Black and White
Posted by Alyson. Filed under Color Palettes, Wedding Inspiration

Hello everyone at One Lovely Day!  My name is Alyson, and I was the lucky winner of Project Wedding’s Inspiration Board Contest! I’ve been invited to be a guest blogger here to share some of my inspirations with you. If you’d like to see more of my designs and ideas, please come visit me at my wedding inspiration blog Keen To Be Seen, too!

Today’s theme is modern romance with black and white floral details.

Some of my favorite elements of this board are the funky and fabulous button and felt flower bouquets by Princess Lasertron. I love the combination of handcrafted and vintage glam!

The white hydrangea bouquet with beaded black butterflies is another Martha Stewart find. The Caroline Herrera blossom gown photo was also from Martha Stewart Weddings. When I first saw it, I couldn’t decide if it was a thumbs up or thumbs down for me, but I’ve decided I’m a fan. The rest of the gown is very understated, so I think that even with the huge bloom it manages to be elegant and lovely.

I love both pairs of shoes. The black pair are black tulle stilettos with organza roses by Badgley Mischka. Unfortunately, I’m not sure who made the other ones, but I love them. If you know, send me a note and I’ll update it here! The same goes for that fantastic black lace cake.

The cute little black and white dress from Peach and Plum would be a modern take on a frilly flower girl. And it’s even on sale!

Finally, the Damask Pattern Tape is genius. You can use it for packaging favors as shown in the picture, but you can also use it to on clear glass votive candle holders to make these:

The song for today is I’ve Got the World On a String by Michael Bublé– I thought it was a good combination of old-school classic with a modern twist, just like today’s board!
