{real wedding} jessica + grant's front porch wedding

It's true I love a good porch wedding and Jessica + Grant wedding doesn't not disappoint. They married at the gorgeous Front Porch Farms outside of Nashville, TN surrounded by friends and family.  The couple’s style complimented the wedding d├ęcor and details to a T.  Jessica found most of the DIY items browsing through Etsy and her mom handmade those adorable “LOVE” pillows.

{#158} all-american bbq

{colors} crimson, mustard, denim 
{description} It must be summer because I'm craving some good old fashion BBQ and with Fourth of July fastly approaching wouldn't a BBQ themed be so appropriate? I choose a bright palette of primary colors to add a touch of kitsch to the event especially if your going to have a big event such as a wedding or a birthday party during a holiday weekend why not allow your guest to kick back and relax.

{bridal shoot} rustic heirloom

I love receiving pretty little shoots like this one in my inbox. This bridal session was shot in an abandoned warehouse in urban Charlotte, NC. The bride’s beautiful dress was altered with an addition of a delicate handmade strap made out of lace from her mother’s wedding dress.

{engagement} kelly + joe

I totally gravitated toward today’s engagement shoot because nothing reminds me more of summer than carnivals.  Kelly + Joe spent a few hours getting dizzy on rides,  chatting it up with delightful "carnies" and caricature artists as well as munching on a variety of delicious fair foods.

{shop the inspiration} summer stripes

Today I'm bringing to you a new series to P&P, a small shopping guide inspired by my favorite inspiration boards from the past and present.  For the first one I selected yesterday's inspiration board {Summer Stripes}.  As you are well aware I'm a little nautical obsessed lately and found a few key items that can bring this board to life in your wedding decor or home. 
1. galvanized pedestal {bhldn}  2. borrby lantern {ikea}
3. wood tags {save on crafts}  4. nautical ice bucket {haus interior}
5. baker's twine {whisker graphics}  6. awning stripe table cloth {anthropologie}

Do you like this new series? Which inspiration board should be on the next {shop the inspiration}??

{real wedding} nicole + simon

I first came across Nicole + Simon's wedding on Steph's blog after seeing their gorgeous wedding trailer I knew that I had to feature it on P&P. The couple’s relaxed wedding took place at the bottom of a garden on Waiheke Island in New Zealand as was a true representation of the bride and groom…it was intimate and casual with just the right amount of elegance.
Nicole said "It was the most amazing day of my life, and the best part is that I can relive the experience again and again thanks to BubbleRock Studios and Jo Wickham."
