An Evening in the Orchards

Be still my heart! We are completely smitten by this fanciful inspiration shoot! The pretty orchard setting, vivid pink palette, and dainty details such as polka dot linens, watercolor stationery, and a blush gown, result in pure romance. A blush Watters corset and Augusta Jones skirt from Anna Be are both both and delicate, capturing the feminine yet wild and free romantic in us all! “Lipstick” colored blooms from Violet Floral Design decorated a rustic-chic wood tabletop, and at each place setting sat a stunning hand-lettered menu from Lana’s Shop, which doubled as a favor box of macarons. Each detail was lovingly curated by Jessica Hearing of A Vintage Affair Events & Rentals, and we’re sure you’ll fall in love with the ladylike hues, lush flowers, and of course, the stunning images from Sara Hasstedt!

Romantic Blush + Ivory Wedding

Becky and John wanted a classic romantic vibe for their beautiful Columbia, Missouri, wedding, with lots of ivory, cream and blush elements. After choosing her Jim Hjelm gown from The Ultimate Bride, Becky worked with Kent’s Floral Gallery to incorporate her favorite flowers—garden roses, peonies, and hydrangeas—in shades of rich white and creams with hints of peach throughout. Blush bridesmaids dresses by Amsale from Bella Bridesmaids were a lovely complement to the lush and subtle florals, first at the ceremony at Missouri United Methodist Church and then at the romantic reception at Kimball Ballroom. We love the soft colors and sparkle of mercury glass and gold details at the reception, and the incorporation of roses on the cake from Edith Hall Cakes. Just stunning! “We wanted everyone to have a blast, and I really think we pulled that off,” says Becky. Judging from all the prettiness in these images from Heather Roth Fine Art Photography, we have to agree!

Jewelry Insurance from Jewelers Mutual

Summer time means travel time (need some trip ideas? Visit Entouriste!) and whether you’re a jetsetter or a roadtripper, chances are your mind is on trip planning and not protecting your jewelry, which is just how it should be… if you’ve insured your jewelry!

Why consider jewelry insurance before your getaway? According to a recent survey by Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company—an insurer that’s been protecting jewelry for 101 years—28% of people have lost a piece of jewelry while traveling. 43% of those losses were rings, often the most expensive piece of jewelry owned. Most importantly, nearly 7 in 10 of those who report jewelry loss while traveling did not replace their stolen piece.

If you must bring your jewelry while traveling, here are some tips from Jewelers Mutual to help minimize the chances of theft and loss:

  1. Pack light. Only take jewelry that you will wear while traveling and out and about.
  2. Make a list. Inventory the valuables you are bringing and make two copies of the list. Leave one copy at home and pack a copy to take with you.
  3. Carry on. Never put jewelry in checked baggage. Instead, wear with care.
  4. Keep it with you. Never leave jewelry unattended, and store jewelry in your hotel’s in-room safe when you’re not wearing it.
  5. Last but definitely not least: Insure it! Insure your jewelry before leaving home and be sure you have coverage that makes sense for you. Standard homeowners and renters policies may not cover jewelry. Be sure that your policy is effective while in your travel destination, and covers theft, loss and mysterious disappearance.

Choosing jewelry insurance doesn’t have to be complicated. Get more travel tips, get a free quote, and quickly apply for insurance today to make sure your pieces are covered before embarking on your next journey.

Elegant Pawleys Island Wedding

South Carolina’s Pawleys Island is one of the oldest summer resorts on the East Coast, and we are in love with the romantic Lowcountry atmosphere of The DeBordieu Club, home to Taylor and Pete’s gorgeous and classic wedding. After a ceremony outside along the marsh under the perfect Carolina skies, the reception moved inside, where stunning decor from Blossoms Events awaited. Opulent arrangements of Georgia roses and hydrangeas in the couple’s pink and white color palette set atop tables dressed in crisp white Covers by Nicole linens from Snyder Rentals. Taylor’s bouquet is especially lovely, with fluffy pink peonies and a layer of white feathers, to remind her of her late mother. An “In Memory” chair also graced the ceremony in remembrance. Visit the gallery to enjoy each and every image from Pasha Belman Photography!
