Love List


Thank the good Lord it’s Friday! It’s been a bit of a stressful week over here, but a few things have made it much better, including some new recipes (Smitten Kitchen’s ratatouille and Forgiving Martha’s vegan penne alfredo), working on fun projects for my wonderful internship, websites that are making my transition to Photoshop infinitely easier and more fun (namely Pugly Pixel), and the anniversary issue of Matchbook Magazine. I’m feeling thankful for the “blogosphere” right now, to say the least. Here are a few more delightfully colorful reasons why.

{I just love this sweet bouquet! It’s equal parts classic and whimsical–perfect for a 2012 bride. Picture by Alissa Ferullo Photography via Style Me Pretty}

{I couldn’t bring myself to crop this image that saved directly from 100 Layer Cake. I was originally drawn to the bridesmaids in their fabulous print dresses, but doesn’t the whole thing look gorgeous together? I love billy balls, and that picture of the bride flipping through the Bible while looking amazing in her Sarah Seven dress is so beautiful. Pictures by Gucio Photography via 100 Layer Cake}

{This might be one of my favorite cakes ever. I love cakes that are simple for the most part, but with some extra-special embellishment, and this beauty fits the bill perfectly. Picture by Patrick Moyer via The Wedding Chicks}

{Mismatched bridesmaid shoes might be even more popular than mismatched dresses, and I think it’s a trend that’s here to stay…hopefully forever :) Picture by Harrison Studio via Elizabeth Anne Designs}

Have a great, relaxing weekend!
