Design Pretty: California Chateau

I loved this feature in Veranda from a few months ago. You know I love a good chateau, but California is where my heart is... So when I saw this French design in a California locale, I was in! <brunette hand raising emoji x3>

The antique elements throughout lend this home a classic elegance rarely found in this corner of the world, and combined with a neutral color scheme, the effect is a perfectly elevated California cool. Well, presque parfait (that's Google Translate for "nearly perfect)...personally, I'd throw in some color here and there to make it just a tad more lively, but otherwise this just does it for me!

Wedding Pretty: Desert Dream Elopement

As a decidedly indoor girl, it's hard to imagine enjoying my wedding on a cliff amidst wind and rain and dirt etc. Give me a chandelier over clouds and marble over rocks any day.... BUT. This Horseshoe Bend elopement has me singing a different tune. Such stunning simplicity--just the wind, the rocks, and that dress. Perfectly ethereal and grounded all at once, all captured by Seattle-based photographer Jordan Voth. Enjoy!

Wedding Pretty: Floral Wedding Invitations by b.t.elements

As a lover of all things floral, I'm pretty smitten with the Marlow Wedding line put out by wholesaler b.t.elements. They are so perfect for a romantic spring or early summer wedding! I especially love the hydrangea suite. Just like its real life counterpart, that single blush hydrangea bloom makes such a statement that sets a perfectly delicate and dreamy tone for the whole wedding. This company is a wholesaler, so look for a local stationery shop that carries their lines here. Enjoy the eye candy and happy mailing!

Film Pretty: The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Meant to post this ages ago, but eye candy is still eye candy no matter how delayed a post... Was absolutely taken by the stunning imagery in 2015's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The colors, the costumes, the scenery, those bangs! (and of course the gentlemen.......) I'm afraid stills couldn't possibly do it justice, as so much of what was magical about this movie was the way the beautifully clad characters engaged with the breathtaking Italian scenery. Enjoy these captures, though, until you find a few hours one afternoon to watch the film. Meanwhile, I'll be dreaming of another Italian getaway and debating the endless merits of Hammer vs. Cavill...

Wedding Pretty: Macrame Ceremony Backgrounds

I am in love with this macrame trend, especially for a spring or summer wedding. Whether it's an arch perfectly framing the couple or more of a backdrop, it's a beautifully simple and subtle way to decorate a ceremony without distracting from the couple. Bonus for the trend-bucking bride: I spend hours coming through wedding photos and it's still rare that I spot a macrame backdrop, so chances are you won't see this at the 15 other weddings you attend this wedding season!
