Current Crush: Figs

Although apples and pumpkins may be the first pictures of autumn in your mind, this week we are falling for figs! At their prime, the deep aubergine color of figs is a perfect addition to a fruit and cheese plate and gorgeous adorning everything from cakes to place settings. Unripe figs are a beautiful autumn green color, and are a lovely and unexpected addition to bouquets and centerpieces. Aubergine, gold, ivory, and green is a stunning autumn color palette and these little fruits fit right in—it’s no wonder that figs are our current crush!

Summer Country Wedding Inspiration

Today’s gorgeous styled shoot at Ivanhoe California’s stunning Historic Seven Sycamores is inspired by a summer evening in the countryside. Soft feminine colors and greenery details add to the natural beauty of the surroundings. Kim from Drops Of Honey Designs designed an ethereal tabletop and bridal look, and accessories from Petals & Stones added the perfect amount of elegance. Cristal Jones Designs used handmade papers from Nepal as the basis for the hand-lettered stationery suite, whose blue and gold tones paired beautifully with the beautiful tabletop featuring her floral designs. We love every single detail in these images from Jessica Parker!

    Effortless + Chic Chicago Wedding

    Elizabeth and Brandon’s wedding can be summed up as contemporary, modern, and chic. The couple was engaged in France, and a Chantilly lace gown, handmade macarons, and a modern palette added a bit of French flair. A New Leaf was the setting for their intimate affair. Elizabeth was 5 months pregnant, and they were all too happy to make this an integral part of the occasion. They embraced her bump in the gorgeous images from Clary Pfeiffer and announced during the reception that they were expecting. It was truly an occasion to celebrate and we know you’ll fall in love with their clean and simple soiree!
