Love List (and Giveaway Winner!)


This week, I’ve been drawn to moody grays, soft pinks, gorgeous calligraphy, and sentimental moments. All are represented in this week’s Love List, and I’m so happy with how it turned out! From a ruffly blush Vera Wang worn in engagement pictures, to a big city wedding overlooking the Brooklyn skyline, to writing vows on the walls of a new home seven years after the wedding, I’ve been so moved by the stories behind the pictures lately. After all, aren’t the love stories what it’s really all about?

{After seven years of marriage, Stephanie and Brandon decided to write their wedding vows on the walls of the house they were building. What a beautiful gesture–captured perfectly by one of my favorite photographers. By Ali Harper Photography via Snippet and Ink}

{Do you remember the Charbonnel et Walker Pink Champagne Truffles that showed up in my redesign moodboard? This dreamy letterpress suite reminded Lena of them, and when she posted these pictures, I knew I had found my new favorite invitation source. By Daily Sip Studios via A Crimson Kiss}

{Blush pink and dove gray is lovely, but I think it’s quickly becoming a bit overdone. That’s why I love this chic update–charcoal and peach. Plus, how great is that calligraphy? By Stylish & Hip Weddings Photography via Snippet and Ink}

{I fell in love with this blush Vera Wang when it came out, but I know I could never pull off a colored wedding dress someday. That’s why I think this bride is a genius for wearing it during her engagement session!

    writings your vows on the wall is such a cute idea! it’s like putting the heart inside your build a bear! adding a designer engagement dress into the budget shouldnt affect too much, right? :)
