The newest issue of InStyle Weddings is definitely one to get….I absolutely fell in love with the immensely creative Paper Portfolio…essentially they gave 5 stationers free reign to design their dream suite of invitations, programs, etc. Here are some of my favorites….I even highlighted my SUPER favorite parts!

This black and white photo of us is one of my favorites from our September 2006 wedding. The wedding was in a contemporary art gallery at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. While I’m not typically a fan of posed photos, this one really captured the mood of the evening…modern mixed with vintage, elegant yet whimsical and fun.

You would think finding modern looking guestbooks would be easy….but its NOT. Luckily I found Kolo albums….we’ll probably end up using one in chartreuse [but they have great colors that would go with any theme...I especially like the orange!] They also have great boxes in case you want to nix the whole book idea all together…..

Kelly McWilliams from Weddings by Socialites:
This is Krista & Chris (Nov 18, 2006). Krista was one of my favorite clients ever- we had such a great time planning her wedding. Anyway, this photos is of the reveal. They chose to see each other before the ceremony to take photos. The moment was UNBELIEVABLE and the pictures proved it. Both Krista and Chris ended up in tears.

I was poking around the internet over the weekend and stumbled across Carrie Weston….a fun jewelry designer with a quirky sense of humor. She’s designed a great range of stuff, and REASONABLY priced to boot! I love her diamond silhouette rings and necklaces (originally designed for her brother to propose with!)….but I’ve got to say that her sandwich ring had me at “baloney”.
