Beach Inspiration in the South of Italy

If we sit back and close our eyes, we can almost feel the ocean breeze flowing from these stunning images by Les Amis Photo. Puglia is a wild and romantic destination for Italian weddings, and this inspiration shoot designed by La Monique Eventi brings the setting to life. Soft peaches and pink in the flowers by Il Profumo dei Fiori evoke a tropical feel, and the tablescape gives a nod to the nautical surroundings with rope and seashells. Stationery with soft gray by Cut and Paste Lab is demure and refined. A gorgeous Couture Hayez gown brings a bohemian elegance, complete with a sideswept braid and neutral makeup by Ego Parrucchieri. Transport yourself to a windswept paradise in the gorgeous images from Les Amis Photo!

Classic Black and White Wedding

We have the most beautiful, classic Chicago wedding to share today! Olivia and Jeff were married at the historical Rookery Building and its breathtaking interior was the inspiration for their elegant black, white, and gold color palette. Timeless glamour was the theme of the day, and Olivia is sophisticated and glamorous in a mermaid Vera Wang gown and Valentino heels, her maids chic in Jenny Yoo‘s Annabelle dress in black. Juliet Tan Floral Design accented the beauty of the ballroom with arrangements of white and ivory peonies, hydrangea and roses set atop sleek black linen. We love how classic meets modern in the pretty Amy Beck Cake Design cake and bold black envelopes with gold calligraphy from Chips and Salsa Designs. Each image from Tamara Gruner is picture-perfect!

Summer is officially here and the first week of the season is off to a fabulous start! It is only the beginning, but our social calendars are filled with rehearsal dinners, weddings and travel plans. In the midst of our busy schedules, we still found time to gawk at the gorgeous wedding details from the week and welcome Texas-based wedding photographer, Jessica Scott Photography to our EAD family! From engagements and bridals to a wedding day, her goal is to capture the details and moments that fully tell the story of each couple. We are truly excited to have her as the newest addition in the vendor guide.

Cherry + Bourbon Wedding Inspiration

We’re hopelessly in love with the whimsy and elegance in this stunning summer editorial from Nature’s Grace Design. Bright cherry red brings a youthful, lighthearted feel, while the sophisticated setting of Fort Collins County Club adds a classic touch. Fresh white formal wear, a stunning sleeved gown from Encore Bridal, and a 1958 Ford bring in a sense of nostalgia, and and tall glasses of Cherry Bourbon Cream Soda make you long for the long hot days of summer when country club weddings were the affair of the season! The timeless grace is infectious, and we adore each stunning image from Danielle DeFiore!

MagnetStreet Weddings


We’re sure you’ve heard about the fabulousness that is MagnetStreet Weddings, and today we’re thrilled to show off some of our favorite designs. When we received our box of goodies in the mail it was like Christmas. There were invitations, RSVP cards, magnet save the dates, programs, and envelopes galore, as well as a fabulous sample pack with information about all of their papers, fonts, and colors (including a swatch card in your own color palette). The Luminous Charm was one of our favorites, with its cheery yellow and gray, photo magnet save the date, and adorable “I Spy” reception card, inspiring your guests with a fun little photo scavenger hunt! We love how MagnetStreet makes it easy to customize your stationery set, that each set has so many coordinating extras, and that the same design is available in multiple styles.

So what are you waiting for? Head on over to MagnetStreet to sample any three wedding invitations you like, in your colors!
