 last night i was among all the twi-hards and watched the twilight saga: eclipse at midnight {like i did for the previous two films}.
today's post is my ode to this enchanting love story. i spotted this gorgeous twilight inspired wedding a while back via {hostess blog}.  i love how you get the feel of the story with such subtle details. i especially love the gorgeous cake from {sweet and saucy}.

{real anniversary} mer + tim

i love this idea from mer & tim of {sweet little photographs}. they decided to celebrate a "honeyversary" at the ace hotel and swim club in palm springs.  the couple wanted to create a similar retro vibe to their engagement shoot and they shot the whole session themselves with a tripod and wireless trigger. 

big thank you goes out to tim + mer for allowing me to share these amazing photos.

{real party} lemonade + sunshine

hi everyone...i know i don't usually post on saturday but i just had to share this party from jessica at {pen & paper flowers} .  yes! i know it's for a birthday party but i can totally see a wedding/bridal shower happening in these images. jessica did an amazing job on her two oldest daughter's birthday party. she dreamed up a lemonade and sunshine theme with rustic details and charm...

tin cans filled with garden flowers adorn the wrought iron chairs
sweet cupboard is filled with equally sweet cake and treats
tin can banner + old window = adorable welcome sign
i love the scraps of fabrics tied around the vintage bottles to add color and interest.
fresh lemonade in large jugs and vintage bird bath filled with ice to keep the frozen treats nice and cool
pretty amazing right? i'm inspired are you?
