{engagement} lindsey + jake

such a sweet e-session right? these gorgeous images were shot by melissa from {fresh in love photography} at jake's old high school, where he would share stories during the shoot and say "oh thats the window I jumped out of when the teachers back was turned in trigonomics"...or..."thats where we would sneak off to smoke" ...which would surprise his bride-to-be because he's far from being a rebel now.

congrats to lindsey + jake!!

{friday faves} skeleton keys

happy friday!!!
today's faves were inspired by my amazing friend sofia who commented on last week's ff post {old doors} saying "I see an old door used as table for favors with old vintage keys and locks" . vintage keys of course...i love that.  so to continue with her idea i gathered a collection of different ideas where old skeleton keys are perfect way to add a vintage touch to your wedding.  
can you guess with one is my ultimate favorite one?

want to diy with skeleton keys? 
why not try rubber stamping the skeleton key onto a manila tags for guest favors or cute place cards.
1. picket fence escort display {lisa lefkowitz}
2. key garland {nonpareil magazine}
3. centerpiece {new york food}
4. place card {green wedding shoes}
5. scattered keys {pottery barn}
6. boutonnière {caroline ghetes}
7.  boutonnière {100 layer cake} 
8. bridal bouquet {dandelion & grey}
9. skeleton key rubber stamp {nora jane}
10. skeleton key clip art {the graphic fairy}

{#105} a backyard wedding

{season} summer
{colors} blue hydrangea, light purple, brown, white
{description} this has to be one of my favorite boards to date.  forget the traditional wedding dress- this bride wears a vintage pale blue dress with hand gathered hydrangea bouquet. the decor for this casual backyard wedding is composed of a few of my friday faves {old doors, rustic ladders and vintage door knobs}.  skip the wedding cake and serve your guests homemade ice cream that is kept cool in a vintage cooler.

{engagement} aly + kevin

i love today's engagement shoot captured by tea from {dreambox photography} of aly + kevin in novato, california.  here's a little something that tea said about the couple "kevin and aly met at work two years ago. aly said she immediately had a crush on him and they went on their first date at starbucks. the two found out they had the same taste in music, senses of humor, and dark conversation. It was love."
fishing for love...
congrats to aly + kevin!!

{friday faves} old doors

happy friday! 
wow...it's been a while since i wrote a friday fave post. well today it's all about old doors. i love seeing them in home decor blogs and magazines but they are making their way in weddings too. there are so many options for these doors you can paint, distress or leave them as is for a unique escort display or how about extra tables for your reception?  

1.  escort card display {elizabeth anne design}
2. buffet table {a country girl wedding}
3. vintage door table {ruffled}
4. outdoor entryway {jose villa}

have any other ideas how old doors can be used in weddings?
