Happy Birthday Tulle Wedding Skirts!

photo-3That’s right! This little blog turns one today! A whole year has gone by since I posted my first post — so in honor of the past year, I thought I’d do a little year in review.tutu pic 2It all started with a visiona passion for weddings — and a lot of ballet in my veins.

I created Mood Board Mondays (my favorite board above) — which proved to be a great way to showcase various wedding themes & trends.

There were various series of posts including: Trending, Today’s Tulle and My Best Friend’s Wedding Series, which took us through Danielle’s wedding planning journey. I also created a few How-to’s and DIYs including: the perfect eyebrow shaping, the perfect ribbon bouquet and the perfect whiskey ginger.

KWP-kerrycolinwedding-1531The Real Weddings features proved to be the most popular posts — as I knew they would be. I had the pleasure of working with so many amazing brides — Elizabeth, Heather, Jamie, Caroline, Erica, Erin, Katie, Callie, Danielle, Kerry & Mallory — and can’t wait to feature the brides I have in the pipeline! Thank you all!

In partnership with Work it Out, I created a series of bridal events for local brides to come out, meet new vendors and share a glass of bubbly or two. We hosted five events — and will be back with more in 2015. Stay tuned!

Paulie and I also celebrated our one year anniversary in September — and I can’t thank him enough for his continued support of me and this blog.

It’s been one heck of a year, with a fair share of ups and downs. But I have so much to be grateful for from starting my little blog — and so much to be grateful for in my life. Thank you for sticking with me readers — I owe it all to you!

Mood Board Monday

After a weekend in the mountains, I’ve got snow on the brain. And oh wait, it’s snowing again. Those warm days will be here eventually (darn you, groundhog) – but in the meantime, there are still ways to make winter, and winter weddings, look really pretty. This week’s mood board adds a hint of color to the palette with ice blue and silver.

These silver bridesmaids dresses are so elegant and would make any woman feel pretty – even in the dead of winter. This aquamarine engagement ring sure is a stunner! And looks awfully similar to a certain darker blue ring worn by my favorite princess across the pond. Ice blue accents like the pine cone centerpieces, fur cloak and ring pillow are all perfect ways to add a little winter flair and color to the big day!

Gold {Winter} Wedding Inspiration

Like I’ve said, metallic accents really get me going. There’s something about these golden details that just scream winter wedding to me.

That sequined cardigan would make for the perfect accessory to a chilly, outdoor photo shoot. A simple, yet elegant gold and white tablescape would brighten up any room. Who wouldn’t love opening an invitation to a gold-glitter liner? Love those gold details mixed into a wintry bouquet. And seriously, that cake is just too pretty to eat!
