{bridal bouquets} the simple side

In tomorrow's elopement, there are very few details we typically associate with weddings like white dresses, pretty centerpieces & meaningful favors.  But the chic Bride did carry a sweet little bridal bouquet of purple tulips.  I was inspired to find simple bridal bouquets that would be just perfect for an elopement or small wedding.  I think these beauties fit the bill perfectly!  

The unique corsage ranks as my favorite but it was a tough decision.  These gorgeous little stunners prove that simple bridal bouquets don't sacrifice style!

{Rustic Finger Lakes Wedding} Hannah & Matthew

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Welcome to the conclusion of the local New Jersey & New York wedding series!  Today, we are traveling back to the Finger Lakes region of New York, specifically the Lake Skaneateles area.  Here, the scenery is beautiful, the details are charming & the party is rocking!  Silent Moment Photography shows us the beauty:  

Hannah & Matthew got married on June 16, 2012 in Skaneateles, New York.  Their wedding was pure sweetness, full of DIY, meaningful details by the Bride.  

The Bride & Groom became husband & wife at Grace Chapel.  Upon entering the small chapel, guests were invited to participate in a ring warming ceremony to bless the wedding bands.  The Bride, stunning in a darling lace & tulle wedding gown & colorful heels, walked down the lace-lined burlap aisle runner to marry her Groom.  The happy newlyweds were led from the ceremony by a junior bridesmaid carrying a "Just Married" banner.  

The tented reception was held in an picturesque, open field on the bank of Lake Skaneatles.  The rustic dinner tables featured pretty pink flowers in Mason jars, burlap runners, flower-patterned escort cards & wooden cutlery.  The celebration included lots of dancing as the guests took their cue from the Bride twirling in her perfect party dress.  Soon, it was time to cut the wedding cake, an amazing white cake delicately decorated with mint accents.  As the guests departed, they took home their hand-packaged s'mores favors to savor later.  Such a sweet affair!  

My Favorite Moment:  The ring ceremony is absolutely heartwarming!

My Favorite Detail:  I had a really hard time deciding but, in the end, the s'mores favors stole my heart.

Congratulations, Hannah & Matthew!

{Guest Posting} Hope Over Heartache

Last week while I was in Key West for a destination wedding, something pretty big happened.  My guest post, Hope Over Heartache, was published in Still Standing Magazine.  I am beyond honored.  Almost one year ago, Still Standing encouraged women like me to share their stories.  I somehow found the courage to write & share my story of life after miscarriage.  From my first story & my following stories, I received tremendous support from family, friends, acquaintances, readers & strangers.  It was simply amazing.  Now that exact story appears on Still Standing Magazine & if it brings just one reader a little peace & comfort, then I have given something back.

In related news, National Infertility Awareness Week is taking place right now.  Its mission is to help change the conversation about infertility, bring infertility support groups to every community and increase access to all family building options.  If you or someone you know suffers from infertility, I encourage you to share National Infertility Awareness Week & Still Standing Magazine with them.  & give them a BIG hug!

If you would like to read my story of life after a miscarriage, please visit Hope Over Heartache in Still Standing Magazine.  Thank you so much from the very bottom of my heart!

{Finger Lakes Vineyard Wedding} Amy & Matthew

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Continuing our local New Jersey & New York wedding series, we travel to the gorgeous Finger Lakes region of New York to enjoy a lovely vineyard wedding at Heron Hill Winery.  Consider me completely smitten with the beautiful Bride & Groom & pretty in pink details set against the perfect setting of the vineyard.  Here to show us the beauty is Lora Ann Photography:  

Amy & Matthew got married on July 7, 2013 at Heron Hill Winery in Hammondsport, New York.  The picturesque vineyard provided the perfect backdrop for their celebration.  The white tent lined with white lights provided stellar views of the vineyard during dinner & dancing.  Simple white tables were decorated with unique light green hydrangea centerpieces & glowing candlelight.  Pops of pink from the bouquet & wedding cake added a light, sweet touch.  Such a pretty wedding!  
My Favorite Moment:  I absolutely adore the Bride & Groom being lead from their ceremony by a bag pipe player.  Awesome!

My Favorite Detail:  For the tented reception, the wine barrels topped with candle lanterns are a fabulous touch.

Congratulations, Amy & Matthew!
