Love List


I think April is off to a pretty lovely start, don’t you? I had a stressful morning yesterday, but my drive home across Central Texas with the wildflowers blooming, windows down, and country music blasting made me feel so grateful for spring! I’m ready to enjoy this Easter weekend by spending as much time as I can outside in the hammock reading this book (it was written by a friend of my mom!), hanging out with my family, and catching up on some pretty blogs. Now here are some of my favorites from the week!

{I thought this balloon release send-off was so unique and whimsical! You could display the balloons in a bunch at the ceremony entrance as a decoration, and then invite everyone to take one with them on their way out. Gotta love when one thing serves two purposes! By Landon Jacob Productions via Southern Weddings}

{Seriously, this might be the best styled bridal party ever! From the gorgeous bride rocking her BHLDN dress (one of my favorites!) to the mismatched ‘maids, I’m positive that every one of them will get tons of wear out of these outfits! By Junophoto via Style Me Pretty}

{I don’t know what it is about circus-themed weddings, because I don’t even like the real circus, but the weddings always blow me away! This vintage circus-themed wedding balances retro, DIY, elegant, and whimsical perfectly, and I love the balloon centerpieces. By Christian Cruz Photography and Andy Nguyen via Green Wedding Shoes}

{In light of the gorgeous New York City wedding (and my dream NYC wedding inspiration board) on Something Pretty this week, I had to share this cute shoe shot! What a great idea for showing off both your heels and your venue location. Check out the full wedding to see the bride’s amazing bouquet, too! By Jen Huang Photography via Once Wed}

{This is going to be a lifesaver for brides planning a wedding sans-planner! My dear friend Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous pulled together a detailed wedding day timeline for Wedding Chicks, and I’m ready to share the free download with every bride I know! Plus, how cute is that invitation suite from The Green Kangaroo?}

I’m so excited for next week–my birthday week! I have some seriously pretty things lined up, and I can’t wait to share them. Have a wonderful weekend and a blessed Easter!
