As an interior designer, its hard for me to not be inspired by amazing interiors, so seeing these pops of color in otherwise gray environments makes me see incredibly sophisticated wedding palettes. Can you see yourself using these colors?

Its always a thrill for me to see a good friend do something amazing like start a business…Erica and I have been chatting about this day for a while, so I’m glad to finally be able to introduce Thoughtful Day to you! Erica has designed a line of wedding stationery that is mix and match, so that each is customized to your own tastes without going custom!
The Melodie Collection allows couples to mix or match their letterpressed wedding invitation suites. The option is completely up to them. This allows couples to not only come up with their own unique collection, but also pick a collection that will fit within their budget. The collection prices are not fixed, which allows couples to be creative with not only the look of their wedding invitation suite but also the price. The Melodie Collection can work with all budgets! You may opt to pick a two color letterpressed invitation and a one color letterpressed rsvp to help with cost, the freedom to choose is what the Melodie Collection is all about. All four of the themes work mixed together or completely matched. The choice is yours! There are three shown colorways, but custom colors are available as well.
I’m in love with all Erica’s work and know you will be too, so head over to Thoughtful Day and check everything out! [Did you know she did the B-List branding AND my own wedding totes too??] So proud of you girl! Check out the blue colorway over at 100 Layer Cake.
As for me, I’m taking the rest of the week off…planning a conference is not easy work and I need a little breather! I’ll be back on Monday…

This wedding sent from Jenny Jimenez is not only fabulously stylish, but hilarious as well! I wish I had a smoking lobster at my wedding!
Sara & Matt were married on Naragansett Bay in Rhode Island during Hurricane Hanna. The day started out innocently, with the eye of the storm keeping us half dry for the ceremony, cocktail hour and through the start of their lobster bake dinner (lobster!!) from McGrath Clambakes in Newport. By the time the wind and rain resumed we were dancing too hard to care. If you weren’t soaked by the rain, you were soaked with sweat. These are my kind of people!
Both Sara & Matt had their wedding attire custom made for them, with Sara in a tea stained Mary Adams creation and Matt in a gray Addison & Steele suit with purple lining. The guys wore white Nikes with purple swooshes. They donated to Save the Bay in lieu of favors.
Yes, that is one of their guests trying to eat the bridal bouquet.

It was so nice to get this wedding in my mailbox from a lovely lady by the name of Tory Williams that I went to college with…we were in the same photography class and she was plenty talented then, just as she is now! The details from this wedding are just the sweetest…cookies matching the dress? Love it!
DRESS: Ralph Lauren Collection, “Fillippa Dress”. I modified the collar into a ruffle, added bustles underneath to tie the front up after the ceremony, and added the satin black ribbon.
