If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen that last week I was lucky enough to be able to attend an absolutely lovely brunch in New York hosted by Minted to celebrate the launch of several fabulous new products! The Little Owl was just the right size for our group, and the venue was only highlighted by the absolutely adorable decor styled by Hank + Hunt and Minted. The peach and mint brunch featured a precious dessert table with pinwheel background (love!), coordinated bunting and paper mobiles, and decor from the brand-new Matthiola line designed by Moglea for Minted. Oh, and on top of the wonderful new decor lines (meaning: you can have this look for your next party!), Minted is introducing letterpress invitations and fabulous luxe paper options. Thanks to Minted for a fabulous event—see it all in the gallery!

This elegant Park City wedding is a perfect study in incorporating the landscape into the beautiful decor. Mary Rose and Jonathan, with the help of Louise Boland of DVIP, Inc., Event Services, used lots of neutrals, wooden tables, and cream roses with hydrangeas and organic succulents—arranged by Decoration, Inc.—to create sophisticated surroundings for their affair held at the Hotel Park City. We’re so in love with Mary Rose’s floor-length one-shoulder gown from The White Room Bridal Salon, and the taupe bridesmaids dresses are the perfect understated accompaniment. Even the cake, from Carrie’s Cakes, is simple, with a scene-stealing sugar flower garland providing a delicious focal point. The always amazing Rebekah Westover Photography captured the joy and beauty of this day, and we’re smitten! Click through to the gallery for all of the lovely images!

There’s no way to describe Allie and Sean’s wedding—with the breathtaking beauty of Honolulu as its backdrop—than romantic and sophisticated. From pretty taupe and cream invitations to Allie’s appliqued lace and pearl gown, no detail was overlooked. Erin Hearts Court shared these fabulous images, taking us from the traditional church ceremony to the pretty pink, peach, and cream reception at Moana Surfrider resort. We adore how Allie and Sean are absolutely glowing with love—ooh and ahh over all of the gorgeous images in the gallery!

Spring is coming! And nothing could be more in the mood than a bright pastel inspiration board! I just love the pops of vivid yellow with the pastel blue and pink—this is a lighthearted palette that’s perfectly romantic and sweet.

A big rainstorm may have drowned Miranda and Matthew’s plan for a 70-degree Santa Barbara wedding day, but it certainly didn’t damper the festivities. The couple still gave guests a fabulous—albeit windy—time beachside at the Bacara Resort & Spa. The strong breeze only added to the ethereal Kenneth Pool gown Miranda wore, blowing the gauzy tulle skirt in cloud-like swirls and she and Matthew said “I do.” The elegant bouquets by Blue Magnolia Floral & Event Design are classic, especially with navy bridesmaids from J.Crew, but we really love all of the lush greenery and rose garlands strung across the aisle and scattered around the reception room as well. Bacara Resort & Spa provided a yummy dessert spread, with a two-tiered cake trimmed with silk ribbon crowning the center of the table. We can tell from these images from Kirsten Ellis of Beaux Arts Photographie that this was the perfect prelude to a fun life together—see all of the amazing images in the gallery!
