Abby's Beautiful Bridals!

Hey everyone!

I am back today with some unbelievably gorgeous portraits of our most recent bride to say I do! Abby and Justin were married just this past Saturday on a beautiful fall day, and I have been waiting to share her bridals with you for weeks! Melissa McCrotty Photography did a phenomenal job capturing these images. But lets be honest, Abby gave her a lot to work with!
And the grand finale. The one that took my breath away....
I literally want to have this blown up to enormous proportions and hung in my office! Thank you Melissa McCrotty for these gorgeous photos of a stunning bride!

Justin is a lucky man!! More from their wedding to come very soon.

Vendor Spotlight: Autumn and Grace Bridal

Hey everyone!

I have just discovered a wonderful new treasure in the Northwest Arkansas wedding vendor community: Autumn and Grace Bridal. Recently featured on the Today Show, this little company is quickly gaining a wonderful reputation.

In Autumn's own words: "My background is actually as a mixed-media painter and jewelry designer, and this definitely informs how I create!  I love to make pieces that are fun to wear or carry and that feature a variety of fabrics.  And I especially love to work heirloom pieces into my flowers--keepsake wedding-dress fabric, lace, handkerchiefs, brooches, you name it!  These pieces add such personal and meaningful touches to a bride's flowers."

Here are just a few of her beautiful pieces...
Autumn creates gorgeous, one of a kind works of art for you on your wedding day. Using high end fabrics mixed with vintage details Autumn and Grace Bridal gives you a true work of art! Whether it is an extravagant bouquet, a lovely hair piece, or a simple garter, at least one of their products appeals to every bride. She can even use fabric from your mother's wedding gown in your custom creation!

Susan & Kelly: The Details

Hey everyone!

Today is my favorite because I get to share all of the gorgeous, one of a kind details from Susan & Kelly's wedding. The inspiration was anthropologie. We wanted to bring in texture, variety, and lots of beauty, and I think we were extremely successful with this eclectic design! Enjoy...
The brides wore blue suede Manolo Blahnik flats.
Kelly's bridal bouquet by Pigmint.

Guests signed jenga blocks as they arrived at the ceremony to symbolize their family & friends as the foundation for their marriage.

Custom made menus on birch tied with emerald green velvet ribbon designed by Finishing Touch. Lovely birch chuppah by Pigmint.
Navy & white striped runners added a graphic element to the otherwise vintage/organic design. Napkins were tied with emerald green velvet ribbon and a thank you card was tucked inside. A mix of vintage glasses were used on the tables in combination with emerald green mercury glass votives and clear glass chargers with a gold beaded rim. Centerpiece by Pigmint.

Quirky schnauzer statues were placed between the brides' place settings for their sweet pups! Centerpiece by Pigmint.
Gorgeous gold footed bowls held a lovely mix of blooms on the round tables.

An incredible spread of mini desserts was enjoyed by all of their guests. Desserts included s'more cupcakes (the brides' favorite ever since their first date!), profiterols, pecan pies, banana pudding puffs, and more! Desserts by Meridienne Dessert Salon. Display by Finishing Touch.

I adore the way everything came together for this one!! Now come back tomorrow for some fun reception pictures from Danielle Davis Photography!
