note to self: wedding learnings + happy list additions
happy tuesday everyone! i hope you all had a great weekend. it was a doozy for the LLD team - from a 140-person rehearsal dinner to an almost-300 person wedding - and it is times like these that make me so grateful over and over for my assistants because without them there's no way we could ever pull off all the lovely little details. thank you girls, again!! love you. biggest lesson learned this weekend? i always have more than enough eucalyptus. will someone please remind me of that next...
recent projects {minted holiday decor shoot}
{photo (c) minted, tablescape design by jessica of lovely little details} we've been busy bees over here between the wedding season coming to an end and a few extra projects here and there, like the west elm palo alto launch party a few weeks ago, an upcoming collaboration with the dry bar (more info soon!), and in between it all, a holiday decor shoot we were thrilled to design for minted's new holiday line that just launched! see the tablescape above? yep, LLD was behind the design,...
inspiration of the week: the wheatfield {etsy vendor love}
{image (c) the wheatfield} No matter what you think about pinterest, you have to admit, it does introduce us to so many inspiring things! I came across Katie Daisy's work a few weeks ago and wanted to share it with you today as a nice weekend kickoff. Is this not amazing? I'm pretty much obsessed. Here are some of my faves:   I feel kind of like she reached in to my head, found all of my favorite things, and painted them exactly as they are supposed to be. And that...
lovely little details + anthropologie = happy clients
{pretty anthro wallpaper} if we're pals on the LLD facebook page or twitter, you might have seen me mention this last week but i have a fun little update for you! i think one of the many perks of working with a wedding designer/planner (on top of the obvious reasons you decided to work with one in the first place, of course!) is being able to take advantage of industry discounts where applicable. i currently have discounts with several rental & linen companies that i pass directly to my...
lovely flower ingredients: cooking up a fragrant bouquet
{all images taken with personal camera (c) jacin fitzgerald} i have so so so much on my list today but all i can think about is pulling these lovely blooms together for a very special bouquet. i put a note out there on facebook last week saying how much i've been dying to incorporate kumquats in a wedding bouquet and wouldn't you know it, a very special photographer happened to have the perfect bride looking for something fun, whimsical and with lots of color, and a match was made. so...
garter love: La Gartier Wedding Garters {obsessed with these lovelies!}
{all images are (c) La Gartier Wedding Garters} i have a confession for you. please don't judge me. my wedding garter was from victoria's secret. phew - i said it! the garter was a total afterthought, something i never really considered to be that big of a deal. but i think that's because i had no idea about La Gartier Wedding Garters. do you see the swiss dot detail on the one up top? or the pretty velvet ribbon on the one right below? i am in love. From their site: La Gartier is a...
Consider Me Obsessed…
...with this gold confetti sendoff from the Burberry runway show during London Fashion Week. {Burberry, London Fashion Week} Confetti = instant celebration in my book. And if it's gold? Double whammy. How amazing would this be to celebrate "I do" as you walk down the aisle? Burberry, move over - the Mr. and Mrs. are working this runway! And if you wanted to create your own confetti sendoff, head on over to Oh Happy Day today, because as luck would have it, Jordan is featuring a giant...
Friday Finds and Weekend Plans: 1 Year Anniversary, Weddings, and Video Fun
{Scobey Photography} The weekend is here! Can you feel the celebration in my words? This Sunday will be our first anniversary, I can't believe it's been a year already, can you? Sadly, we will not be spending our anniversary together, as Pat has a wedding in New York and I have to stay here for an event in California, but we did celebrate a week early last weekend, and ate our year old wedding cake together then, so it's OK. Besides, I'll be with him next weekend, as we have another wedding...
Chic Bling for the Bridal Party {Forever 21 Finds For Under $10!}
Guys.... I am all about the little blue boxes, j.crew chunky pearl bracelets and David Yurman prettiness... but I also know that we're in a recession right now, so when I came across some of these lovelies at Forever 21 a few weeks back, I couldn't help but think about how pretty they would be for accessorizing the bridal party (or even the bride)! Blog on the brain? You bet. Pearls, sparkles, ruffles and tulle - eat your heart out! And at less than $10 each? I don't really think you can go...
