Woodland Wedding Inspiration

Posted on October 28th, 2012 by annalemberger
Nothing sets the scene for a romantic wedding ceremony quite like a serene forest setting. One of the most beautiful weddings I have ever attended was an outdoor autumn ceremony set against the backdrop of Colorado mountains. Vows were spoken in an open meadow, which guests found with just a short walk through the woods and over a lovely stream.  It was peaceful, picturesque, and intimate. If you intend to capture the last beautiful days of fall with an outdoor ceremony or are planning for next year, consider some of these outdoor, forest wedding tips.

Sage Wedding Inspiration

Posted on September 5th, 2012 by annalemberger

Throughout history, sage has been the go-to herb for curing several medical ailments and warding off evil spirits. One old saying even asks, “Why should anyone die who has sage in their garden?” A mighty herb indeed! Along with its amazing prowess as an herb, sage provides wonderfully earthy color inspiration for an autumn wedding. Pair sage with golden hues for an added elegance. Get creative with sage by including the fragrant leaves in the bridal bouquet and boutonnieres. Plus, you can feel confident knowing no evil spirits will be walking down the aisle with you!

A Touch of Green Wedding Inspiration

Posted on July 15th, 2012 by annalemberger

I fell in love with the White by Vera Wang bridal gown collection at David’s Bridal when I first saw the pieces in all of their satin and organza glory at a bridal showcase last fall. The gowns are timeless, flattering, fun, elegant, and relatively affordable considering the designer label. I am especially smitten with the ivory ensemble pictured below. The added ebony, horsehair sash is a spunky twist on an otherwise classic A-line, and the lace appliqué is simply stunning. With a gown like this, the only other accessories you will need are a simple headband, a ring, and a dashing groom. You may also want to throw on a garter for a little fun later! Let your wedding gown be the centerpiece of an elegant ebony and ivory wedding. Mix in splashes of vibrant light greens to represent new life and new beginnings. Make sure your guests leave their advice and wisdom for this new life chapter in a personal wedding wishes envelope guest book.

Spring Pastels Wedding Inspiration

Posted on April 9th, 2012 by annalemberger

I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely spring break and delicious chocolate Easter bunnies! I know I am. Spring is definitely in the air and gardens everywhere are bursting with color. Nothing says spring quite like beautiful pastel shades of pink, yellow, blue and green. Take a cue from nature and color your wedding with soft but vibrant pastel hues. These splashes of color are sure to put a spring in even your grumpy uncle’s step. If you start feeling surrounded by flowery perfumes, try a popular twist on the wedding bouquet with one made entirely of brooches. It is a great way to incorporate your “something old” and it will last forever!

3 Cheers for St. Patrick’s Day

Posted on February 27th, 2012 by annalemberger

“St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time — a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.” ~ Adrienne Cook.

Everyone has a touch of Irish in them on St. Patrick’s Day! As an Irish lass, I love this green-tinted holiday and all the craziness that goes with it. And the holiday famous for its libations and little, gold-hoarding men is, thankfully, right around the corner. Beer, corned beef, soda bread and…beer make St. Patty’s day a perfect celebration of the coming spring. Raise a mug of Guinness this March and let the luck of the Irish carry you through the rest of year!
