Fashion Friday: We Love Flutter Backs!
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014

From stylish send-off ideas to illusion backs, we’re  clearly a little bit obsessed with exit impressions here at Project Wedding. And what better way to keep all eyes on you than a pretty ruffle detail on the back of your gown? This sweetly charming trendlet is an ideal look for summer brides (show off that sun-kissed skin!), and we love that designers are doing it subtly and super-dramatically. So whether you want a little or a lot of of back ruffle, there’s still a gown for you!

A LITTLE: Amanda Garrett • Ivy & Aster
The look here is part Southern rustic, part forest fairy. Think whimsical and relaxed!

A LOT: Angel Sanchez • Anna Maier/Ulla-Maija Couture
Oversize ruffles are a much more dramatic (but still romantic) statement.

All Natural Marina Wedding in B.C. by Aubrey Joy Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

When I came across Sarah and Mike’s wedding photos, I immediately fell for their natural, organic style, their grounded approach to planning, and of course, Sarah’s darling gown by Ivy & Aster.   Both Sarah and Mike are lovers of the outdoors, travel, good food and wine, and especially coastal B.C.  They said I do on a pier in Pender Harbour this past June.  Enjoy all the natural loveliness, captured by Aubrey Joy Photography.  After a rainy morning of cozying up with her bridesmaids, Sarah dressed in the lovely Sweetpea gown, her long blond locks pinned back with a graceful Jennifer Behr hair flower.  As if it was perfectly choreographed,  the rain stopped just before the ceremony.  Joy and laughter-filled nuptials ensued with hints of sunshine peeking thru the clouds and the serene Strait of Georgia as the backdrop. Afterwards,  Sarah and Mike headed to a special, secluded spot for romantic, sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of portraits with Aubrey.   

The reception was embellished with simple florals, driftwood adornments, and herbal favors.  Sarah and Mike reported that the highlights of the evening were the heartfelt speeches and breathtaking view of the marina.

Sweet congratulations to the newlyweds…

Color + Culture: A Styled Wedding Shoot by Jen Huang and Poppies & Posies
Posted by Kate. Filed under Photography, Wedding Inspiration

A few weeks ago, I headed to Malibu to hang out with Jen Huang and a group of her fabulous workshop attendees.  Naturally, on the docket was a gorgeous little photoshoot with some of the best creatives around:  Poppies & Posies, My Sweet and Saucy, and Paperfinger.  What a dream…

Inspired by color, culture, and art… here’s a peek at the shoot, but the full gallery of photos can be found here.Aude and Gilles are a darling couple… full of love and affection.  Aude was styled in simple, flowing Ivy & Aster dress {Via Lovely Bride} and an amazing boho-chic headpiece by Jennifer Behr.  Gilles looked so handsome in a bowtie by BoutaughAude makes such an incredibly pretty bride.  Jess Wilcox styled her soft waves and vibrant red lipstick to complement the relaxed, colorful setting.  (Definitely a pinworthy look)!  Below: the table spread.  Paperfinger calligraphed menus and table numbers inside organic, watercolor frames.  The centerpiece overflowed with colorful florals, including big bright peonies and golden ranunculus. Just can’t get enough of that rich palette! 

The afternoon was topped off by an oh-so-perfect, marvel of a masterpiece by My Sweet and Saucy.

Thanks so much to the very talented and very kind Jen, and this incredible team:
