Fashion Friday: Moroccan Romance
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

Happy Labor Day weekend… Hope you have something sweet, relaxing, and romantic in store.  A little getaway, perhaps?  Speaking of getaways,  UK-based couture designer, Stephanie Allin, just photographed her 2013 collection in romantic, exotic Morocco… And we’ve got the photos! The exquisite gowns, the remarkable architecture… they’ve left me awe-inspired and yearning for some foreign travel… Enjoy this dose of bridal romance before you head off into the weekend! 

One for the ceremony, and another for the reception, please. Dreeeeaaammmmy.

As if part one wasn’t gorgeous enough, here’s more engaged goodness from Katherine O’Brien Photography! Phase two of Monica and Brandon’s e-session paired their love of vintage with his passion for flying (he’s a pilot).   After cozying up in Katherine’s Corvair, they were inspired to head over to the San Marcos Airport.  They stumbled across this fifty year old hangar and a pristine Stearman airplane.  Sooo perfect.

Part One: An Austin Engagement by Katherine O’Brien Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Engagements

I’m so excited to share this amazing engagement session with you! Monica and Brandon share a love of vintage, so when their photographer, Katherine O’Brien, asked if they wanted to use her brand ‘new’ turquoise Covair for the session, it was an offer they could not pass up.  Such a gorgeous couple with incredible style; I’m completely smitten with these pics!

Monica and Brandon totally lucked out on timing; the Corvair was a recent gift to Katherine from her beloved for their 20th Anniversary.  They parked the car in front of a weathered old building with a metal sheet roof.  From the setting to the car to the couple’s fab vintage wardrobe…I’m loving this to pieces!  Part two coming on up; stay tuned…

DIY Wednesday: $10 Farmer’s Market Bouquet
Posted by Kate. Filed under Bridesmaids, DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

One recent, lazy summer weekend I was puttering around the house after my weekly trip to the farmer’s market.  Up in Oregon, there are the best local florals at the market.  I buy ’em by the bunches to brighten up the house.  On this particular weekend I scooped up two bunches of bright snapdragons at $5 per piece and a few stems of loose strife.  I thought they would make for very sweet, inexpensive bridesmaid bouquets.  So there I went, trying my hand at pulling together a little bouquet…. if I can do it, you can definitely do it!  Here’s a little how-to I put together and a few things I learned along the way…  Read the rest of this entry »
