Love List


Happy Friday! It’s a very happy Friday indeed for me–after a long week of cramming for tests, John is here for the weekend! We’ll be celebrating a belated Valentine’s Day today with some exploring in Austin and an amazing looking restaurant that I’ve been dying to try. As we celebrate the last of the Valentine’s Day inspiration over here, I hope you all have a love-filled weekend too! :)

{I’m pretty sure this picture will be on every wedding blog round up in the world today…I mean, come on, it’s Jose Villa photographing cupcakes in a field. Also known as wedding blog gold! Jose Villa via Style Me Pretty}

{I am absolutely in love with how editorial this picture is. I rarely find a black and white picture that I like more than its color counterpart, but this one is perfect! Also seriously considering a Dress Envy post featuring this gorgeous gown :) Picture by Michael Segal Photography via Style Me Pretty}

{Yup, this picture is from the same wedding as shown above. I couldn’t choose a favorite, but I bet you all can’t either! Isn’t that vintage-y ferris wheel adorable? If you haven’t checked out this whole wedding yet, I highly recommend it!}

{Glam cowgirl bridesmaids–what a great combination! I’ve never seen cowboy boots styled this way before, and I am quite a fan of it. Picture by Meegan Weaver Photography via Style Me Pretty Texas}

{One last Valentine’s Day picture for good measure! This Valentine’s Day elopement session is so romantic and intimate–just like I would imagine an elopement should be. I love the candlelit ceremony, all of the pretty pink details, and the slight chess theme! Picture by Gladys Jem Photography via Green Wedding Shoes}

I’ve also been so thrilled to have lots of posts up on the Occasions Magazine blog this week! The other three fabulous interns and I post about different event elements every day, and this week I wrote about:

-Alternatives to floral boutonnieres
– How to make lemonade into a fabulous signature drink
-One of my favorite event ideas ever, which makes me proud to live in our nation’s food truck capital :)

Have a lovely weekend!
