Block Party Nuptials

January 31, 2012

No, no. This isn’t a post about tying the knot at a summer block party. (Although that could be fun too!) I’m talking about a trend that I have been putting off for far too long. What is it, you ask? Color blocking!

For several months I have been wanting to bring you this daring, highly fashionable trend, but I didn’t know how to incorporate it into a wedding. Well, with a little bit of patience and an eye for just the right color scheme, I was finally able to pull together a color block wedding! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do…

Trendspotting: Boutonnieres with Personality

January 26, 2012

The trend of DIY weddings has revolutionized the traditional boutonniere. More and more we are seeing unique ornamentation, and it often doesn’t include flowers at all! This is a fun way for the groom and his groomsmen to get creative. I especially like when they are infused with personality, such as the camera-lover’s boutonniere below.
