there is nothing more inviting or comforting than the sight of a family of christmas stockings all lined up above a warm holiday fireplace. visions of red and green and reindeer come to mind.

i've always been a fan of crisp black and white anemones, but i've seen them recently with a splash of color...and i think they may be my new favorite trend.

i am a huge fan of the unexpected, the original, the uniquely chic. and one of the most unique things i've discovered recently is a new trend towards unusual engagement or wedding rings.

i love pretty things. especially when those pretty things meet paper, color and fabulous accents.

i love a good theme wedding when it's done with a sense of whimsy and true personal style, so in the spirit of all hallows eve, i thought it would be good to share one of my favorite halloween-themed cakes, masterfully created by anne heap at pink cake box.

recently i had the honor of attending the vintage-inspired wedding of jessica and jeff, a gloriously joyful affair that spanned a full weekend in historic elkin, north carolina — complete with antique lace, chic rustic touches and full-on southern charm.

attention all troops (and readers)! i've just discovered a wonderful, timely, and supremely generous offer from one of california's premiere bridal salons — for the seventh year, mon amie bridal salon will be giving away 100 bridal gowns to military brides-to-be...for free.

i love beach weddings. and while i adore the more traditional beachy elements like starfish and sand dollars, i am simply wild about the seahorse — there's just something inherently whimsical about it that adds a cheerful playfulness to any beach wedding design aesthetic.

a friend recently enlisted me to design her wedding invitations, with three very specific design requirements: simple, chic, and organic. below is the resulting suite i created for her, and i think it is already a favorite.

okay, these heels are ridiculous. and by ridiculous, i mean out of control fabulous. i just finished browsing the christian louboutin spring 2010 collection, and these (called tahiti) jumped out at me beyond any other pair.

when looking for design inspiration, one of my favorite things to do is comb through the covers of old wedding magazines (yep, i keep 'em). the cover shots are often noteworthy, and always have an extra something special about them worth a second (or third) look. after all, if they weren't amazing, they never would have wound up on the cover in the first place.

design inspiration can come from anywhere, but possibly our favorite source of inspiration has come from our partnership with superfine bakery — who have recently outdone themselves with their cake interpretation of our popular viceroy invitation design.

i love my job. especially tonight, after watching a playful episode of my fair wedding with david tutera, during which david transformed a charming couple's "day of the dead" inspiration into a romantic, luxe, larger-than-life gothic explosion of red roses and black lace.
