When I saw this church my mouth literally dropped. It is stunning and beautiful and it is a force to be reckoned with. The Bride wore a strapless A-line dress with a simple full skirt. She carried an all-white bouquet and wore her veil pinned into her hair. She outfitted her bridesmaids in strapless green dresses Coren Moore dresses that perfectly matched the groomsmen custom made Vineyard Vines bow ties with shamrocks. As an alum of Notre Dame, the Groom requested all things Irish. My favorite detail was the bagpiper in the ceremony- he led the newlyweds out in the recession!
I’ll admit it. I am in love with the high bun. I think it is one of the most elegant and breathtaking wedding hairstyles. Long, curly hair is a beautiful look for many brides, but it takes a fashionista with some guts to go for the high bun! I still have wedding hair dreams about Hilary Duff’s top knot! This bride from Santa Monica looks very regal with her high bun. Her modern veil isn’t draped over her head, instead it is pinned underneath her bun. This is definitely a look that is going in my “future wedding” folder. The photos come from The Becker and the wedding occurred at the classic and beautiful Casa Del Mar Hotel in Santa Monica, California. As an added bonus, the lucky bride wore Vera Wang. Hold your breath…
Actress Molly Sims married movie producer Scott Stuber this past weekend in Napa Valley, California. Molly’s gown was fitted through the bodice and flared at the knees. It was very detailed with lots of lace. The dress had a mesh netting and lace sleeves. She wore her hair in a high bun with a veil attached to the back. She carried a bouquet of peach roses. Her bridesmaids wore dresses in shades of taupe, brown, and cream all designed by Elizabeth Kennedy. They carried bouquets of white and green florals. Here are a few of the limited photos of Molly’s wedding- and some inspirational photos as well!
New initials have always been something to look forward to after the wedding. There are so many things to monogram with y’all’s last name- towels, linens, notepads, button-down oxfords, robes and more. A wedding trend that has gained a lot of popularity is the joint monogram! The bride’s first name, the groom’s first name and the new last name! Once you find the perfect monogram style, you can use it with your invitations, programs, linens, cakes, and especially a light on the floor! These are some of the best monogram ideas I’ve seen in the wedding world.

You spend so much time planning every little detail- make sure your photographer takes notice of that. In the craziness of your big day it is easy to look past the monogram you added to every single floral arrangement or the matching shoes your bridesmaids wore. Don’t let your photographer forget to document these details! Today I have some of the best detail shots from a wedding in Houston- shot by Barett Henry from CivicPhoto. I love the photos of the Rolls Royce- the couple used it to get from ceremony to reception.
