The Wedding Gift Guide: Anthropologie

A few months ago, Anthropologie debuted their Registry at Anthropologie which is an expanded version of their wish list. This feature is great for those who want a more personal registry option!  They have everything from bedding to dinnerware and not one of their products falls short on character. Here are my picks from Anthro, and everything is under $100! This pretty teapot can find it’s permanent home on the stove top!

Gossamer Vintage

I had lunch with a photographer friend the other day, and she was showing me photos of a recent shoot she did in New Orleans. I’m always in awe of her work, but the beautiful gown the bride wore particularly struck me. It was so original, I just had to know where it was from! She told me she rented it from Gossamer Vintage, and then I died because there was a vintage garment rental company that I had not yet heard of! I immediately insta-stalked them and fell in love even more. The name Gossamer comes from the name of a silk of the very finest texture. The brand was created by a photographer who was always sourcing fine vintage garments for her own shoots, and like most incredible entrepreneurs, she saw a hole in the market and filled it. You can tell from her website how carefully she curates and cares for her collection. Each piece is hand washed and mended if needed, then packaged up for delivery anywhere in the world. How divine! Gossamer has …

Friday Etsy Finds: Twigs and Honey

Sometimes one seller is just so fantastic, it makes my Friday Etsy Finds post easy! I was going to make this post about crystal bridal headpieces, obviously found on Etsy, but then I just couldn’t leave the Twigs & Honey shop! I’ve known about Twigs & Honey since I got married in 2012. I think every bride who has ever considered this style has probably heard of them. So it’s no wonder that Twigs & Honey have been carrried at J Crew, BHLDN and Nordstrom! Proof that with an incredible product and a lot of hard work, any entrepreneur (even Etsy-preneurers!) can make their dreams come true. Here are my favorites, but PLEASE check out her website for more incredible bridal looks! I just love them all. Let me know what you think!

French Quarter Elopement

The thing I love most about this job is that it’s constantly full of firsts. This French Quarter elopement was a first for me, as I’ve never been hired to style and design an affair for just two people! Michelle and Nick were as sweet as can be and working with them on this very special event was so much fun. Even though it was just the two of them, every last detail was thought out and executed just like a normal wedding. We set up a lovely vintage lounge for their ‘first look’, we tied bottles with roses from Poppy & Mint to the altar and lined the aisle with pink ombre petals. We set up the most adorable cake table I’ve ever seen for their cake cutting. We had a single bottle of champagne for their toast, and the couple even had their ‘first dance’. It’s always such an honor to play a part in someone’s big day, and I feel so thankful that these two wanted me to help make their dream …
