i've had several inquiries recently about one of our favorite design motifs — the lady bug. perfect for everything from a tea party invite to a garden wedding, we love this particular design specifically because it doesn't take itself too seriously. it's whimsical, fun, and (we think) lovely.

boxed chocolates, personalized wine bottles, custom coasters... yes, they all make great wedding favors, but for those couples looking for fresh, eco-friendly, literally green favors, consider these two intrepid companies, both offering plantable seedlings in a variety of options.

it's hard to imagine that with all the incredible artists i've encountered while planning my wedding and as a designer that i could be so thoroughly impressed by someone new.
well, it's happened again, at the hands of cake alchemy — the remarkable cake tailors headed up by lauri ditunno in new york city. words like modern, original, irreverent, stylish, stunning, hip, elegant and timeless all come to mind.
first and foremost, cake alchemy's versatility is unlike anything i've ever seen. need pink and traditional? no problem. need pink and mod? also no problem.
i absolutely loooove this african sunset & joshua tree cake above. i mean, i want to be at this wedding. and the delicate ginko leaf sugar flowers below are simply inspired.
next on my list: have a second wedding in new york and hire cake alchemy to make the cake. wanna come?

when i got married, i probably bought and returned five different sets of jewelry before i finally found the perfect accessories. seriously, i even bought, returned and then bought again the same pair of drop earrings, unable to decide if i loved them or hated them (i did not tell my husband-to-be any of this, of course).
