Amsterdam meets New Orleans: Lulu and Jochem’s Extraordinary Wedding

New Orleans and Amsterdam are internationally renowned as vibrant cities with unforgettable character, and the splendor that radiates from these one-of-a-kind places is something worth holding on to. The welcoming and jubilant spirit of New Orleans is what our bride, Lulu, enjoyed so much while she lived here, and it's what brought her back to [...]

Flowers Elsewhere: Jon Shireman

Photographer Jon Shireman has been a blogger-favorite for a while now, and just to heap on a bit more praise, we'd like to show you some of his work. To achieve the photographs below, Jon soaks fresh flowers in liquid nitrogen for thirty minutes and then shatters them.  We're completely fascinated!  Not only because [...]

Fashion to Flowers: Black and White Stripes

It's Fashion to Flowers Thursday! Check out this Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 gown to end all dresses matched with the African Mask Leaf.

Fashion to Flowers

Today's blog is inspired by New York Fashion Week! Do you remember that scene in The Devil Wears Prada when Miranda Priestly chides Andie for scoffing at fashion, and she talks about the trickle down effect that fashion's color choices have on the clothing that even the most unaffected shopper is influenced to purchase? Well, [...]

Themed Event Florals

Next week is all about incorporating floral designs with specific themes.  We love brides who have a refined and traditional taste, but sometimes a little wacky is good. Sometimes a little wacky is great! "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect." - Mark Twain [...]

Flowers For Your Hair

This flower crown image from Vanity Fair's Tumblr inspired me to look for more options for flowers in our hair. Growing up, I had a French teacher who held class outdoors on pleasant afternoons, and I remember pulling up those white flowery weeds and tying them together to make a crown.  I even wore my floral creation [...]

Inspiration: Lovely Wedding Magazine

Australians are just so cool.  I feel comfortable making that blanket statement.  Have you ever met an uncool Australian?  Some of my favorite online reading are provided by chic and sophisticated Australians who curate material that is also...you guessed it...really cool. I was pleasantly surprised when I got an email from the folks at Adore [...]
