I’ve had my eye on cherry blossom inspired weddings for quite some time now. The different shades of pink with slight touches of cream are so sweet and feminine. What do you think? Is there a place for some cherry blossom bliss on your big day?

Lavender is such an amazing color. It’s beauty is in it’s subtlety, whether its used as an accent or a theme. Lavender exudes elegance and femininity – a perfect color for the spring!

Can you believe how quickly this year is flying by? It seems as though we were just introducing you to Lauren and with the snap of a finger, her 12 week internship is already over and it’s time to welcome a new intern to the team!
I’m quite excited to introduce you to Talia who is not only the youngest member of our blogging team but the most distant, posting all the way from the Philippines! Welcome, Talia!
My name is Talia, and I am a junior in high school. I’m a travel and food junkie, and I do food photography as well as design. My perfect night in involves my sisters, a ton of wedding blogs, mani-pedis, and romantic comedies.
Name: Talia Cortez
Location: Muntinlupa City, Philippines
Cute clutch or hold-everything handbag?: Definitely a hold-everything handbag. As a student, it’s so much easier to throw things inside while i’m half-asleep in the morning!
What’s the one thing in your purse you can’t live without?: I can’t imagine ever losing my hard drive. It has everything.
Current obsession: Cursive and print font combos, neon colors with gray
Favorite source of inspiration: Pinterest, wedding blogs, & magazines
