Love List


Y’all, I am having a hard time not thinking about Christmas till after Thanksgiving this year. I am usually so adamant about it, but too many fun things are going on this year and I can’t possibly ignore them! First of all, I’m planning a little Christmas party the weekend after Thanksgiving. I’ve never really planned and styled a party exactly how I wanted it, so to say I’m excited is an understatement! The week after next, I’ll start sharing the inspiration board and some of the fun details I’ve been working on, and I hope you’ll enjoy them. I certainly have been :) Second of all, I went to a wonderful “HoliDIY” Christmas crafting event last night at Anthropologie, hosted by Camille Styles. I met Camille at The Cream in January and it is always so lovely to see her. My friend Jen and I also made it onto the Anthropologie instagram account! See if you can find us :)

{The most exciting news of the week in the wedding world is that Southern Weddings V5 is officially out, and every page is just breathtaking! My favorite shoot so far is the “My Kentucky Rose” shoot, a romantic take on the Kentucky Derby. Isn’t that cake one of the most beautiful cakes you’ve ever seen?

{I was so excited to see my friend Emily of Bird Dog Wedding‘s work on her favorite blog this week! The woodland bridal shower she styled is rustic boho perfection, and I love the chalkboard calligraphy. By Paige Newton Photography via 100 Layer Cake}

{Joy Thigpen is one of my favorite stylists, and I absolutely loved her take on a wedding full of fall colors. That Virginia venue has my heart skipping a beat! By Eric Kelley Photography via Once Wed}

{Speaking of Virginia weddings, I loved seeing this apple orchard wedding this week. It’s so different from the Virginia apple orchard wedding I posted a few weeks ago, but the charming, rustic atmosphere is just as perfect. By Sarah Jane Winter via Snippet and Ink}

{My dream reception venue has a few very specific features: exposed brick walls, huge windows, and hardwood floors, to name a few. After seeing these pretty rustic tables lined with bud vases, I may have to add wood tables to that list. By Eli Turner Studios via Style Me Pretty}

What are you up to this weekend? I will be enjoying Southern Weddings V5, having a sleepover with my sorority sisters, and staying as far away from the Formula 1 race traffic as possible. :P Have a good one!

Love, Lisa
