{happy friday}

Happy Friday, friends! Time! Does anyone know where I can find it? I've been seriously swamped with work and unintentionally put P&P on the back burner.  I'm not going to lie but I'm drained. So please forgive me for cutting back on the posts but hopefully I will get back into the swing of things. 
Have a great weekend and enjoy these links!

{style} emerald + aqua

I really love the fresh palette of emerald and aqua in this week's wedding board and equally love them as color inspiration for bridesmaid looks. Which item do you love best?

{#194} spring green

Lately, I've been craving spring so badly...the blooming trees, the perfect weather oh I love it so much! I also love creating bright spring inspired boards. This board has me dreaming of a sun filled garden wedding with a refreshing color palette of emerald and aqua.

{shoot} simply lovely

If I had to describe today's style shoot in two words, it would have to be simply lovely. Oh and I can't forget to mention how I'm completely smitten with the macaroon bar.  
The dynamic duo of Pedro and Marina from Fotografamos sent over this lovely shoot to share with you fine folks.  Here's what they had to say...We knew we wanted to do this in Casa de São Sebastião, a venue right here in Aveiro, Portugal because we shot a wedding there in August last year and fell in love with the place and the people. It’s a lovely, classic and elegant early-last-century house completely disguised in the city centre.  With that in mind, we contacted them and explained our concept. The moment José Carlos brings out their beautiful antique tableware, we knew we were set! 
Up to that point we had no theme whatsoever, but the color scheme was easy: the tableware was white with grey and gold stripes. So we gathered a talented group of people and started from there.  Since we wanted to work with something a little different from the usual fresh flowers, we called in Marisa, a good friend who does wonderful Origami flowers and she was thrilled to join the team.  Anabela and Rui, from Disha Gourmandise, a local boutique bakery, supplied the delicious macaroons and the simple, delicate and beautiful cake.  Gisela from Lodo designed and developed the stationery. LODO develop original and innovative Design objects and are super fun to work with.  Teresa and João (the models) had their hair styled by Joana from EnVogue hair salon. Makeup was done by Daniela Ramalho, a young rising star in makeup business.

{#193} classic french blue

Happy Monday!! Sorry for the late post but I was having such a hard time finishing up this inspiration board.  I wanted to create something classic but with some vintage touches.  I just adore that veiled pill hat and paired with classic pearls is a look that will never go out of style.

{happy friday}

Happy Friday, friends!! We finally got the taste of Spring the last few days and I freakin' loved it. There was a breeze in the air and I couldn't resist staying outdoors and being unplugged.  But I did get a chance to check out a few goodies this week. Enjoy!

{#192} la dolce vita

Happy Tuesday all! I hope you're having a fabulous day. I had a wonderful dinner with friends this weekend and spent most time oh-ing and ah-ing over their Italian vacation photos.  I'll admit I was super jealous but it did inspire me to create this board.

{engagement} lindsay + stephen

Happy Monday all...I'm so happy to share with you Lindsay and Stephen's beautifully lit travel theme engagement that they shot themselves. Here's what :Lindsay had to say..."This idea of travel is a symbol of the exciting relationship I have with my fiance, and will be the central theme for our wedding this coming spring. To expand on it even more, we decided to incorporate it into our engagement photos"
Stephen and I met when I started attending church at Living Hope Fellowship in Tomkins Cove, NY. Little did I know, he was actually the pastors son! Lucky me ;) 3 years later, Stephen popped the question, complete with the perfect fall day, a song he had written and recorded just for me and a gorgeous diamond ring!

We motivate and challenge each other to be the best artist and man/woman we can be. We inspire each other. We build each other up creatively and emotionally, and our faith, love of music, and our passion for the arts has shaped our relationship tremendously.

{happy friday}

Hey friends! Gosh, I can't believe that my last post was on Tuesday!! I'm a bad blogger. I wish I had a good reason for being MIA but I don't. I've been completely stressed out from work and to be honest when I get home all I want to do is pass out on the couch.  Hopefully this weekend I can charge my batteries and get back to the swing of things. Before I head out I want to wish my parents a belated wedding anniversary. Thirty seven years and they're still going strong! xo
