Rustic Farm Wedding at Yesterday Spaces

I got my wedding pictures back the week of Thanksgiving, and I am finally getting around to blogging them! I love love love how they turned out and I have continued to look at them over and over.

Today I thought I would just show you a few of my favorite pictures. I’ll do another post with detail shots and tell you how I made some of the decor or where it was bought from.

Sit back with a nice cup of coffee or hot chocolate and {hopefully} enjoy perusing.

Empire State Building Wedding Inspiration with RedEnvelope

One of my favorite things about wedding planning was being able to create an event and wedding that was ‘us.’ Pulling together elements, colors, and decor that were inspirational and personal to us. I also loved the freedom of being able to pull inspiration from all kinds of places to create a vision for what I wanted and actually turn that vision into a reality.

The lovely folks over at RedEnvelope recently asked me if I would like to put together an inspiration board for an Empire State wedding.  RedEnvelope along with ProFlowers is partnering with the Empire State Building to give three lucky couples the chance to have their dream wedding at the iconic building.

I loved the idea of being able to pull together inspiration and ideas that were completely different from my own wedding so I jumped at the chance.

When you think of the empire state building, you think classy, glamorous and grandiose. Choosing a few RedEnvelope’s wedding gifts as my inspiration, I pulled together an inspiration board that features an elegant black and gold theme with elements that say regal, without being too formal.

Even though I didn’t personally do a specific color theme, I’m loving the idea of black and gold for a venue like the Empire State Building.

The deadline for couples to submit their love story is December 5th. If you would like the chance to win your dream wedding, visit their Facebook page for more details about the contest.

Disclaimer: I was not compensated by RedEnvelope in any way for this post. I was just excited to pull together some wedding inspiration for someone else’s dream wedding.

10 Unique Fall Tables

School is back in session and cooler temperatures are around the corner. Can you feel it? Fall is almost in the air. Now, typically I’m not a fan of this season change. I’m a summer girl who loves the hot weather. Cooler temperatures don’t excite me. However, I’m excited about it being fall this year. We’re getting married at the end of October so fall this year=wedding and I couldn’t be more excited!

So this year I say bring on the colorful and crunchy leaves, the pumpkins, boots and scarves. This girl is ready for October!

Since I’m getting married in the fall, I’m looking to incorporate some fall elements into the decor and the table settings. But, I’m not one who loves all the bright orange and dark brown combo that is typical of fall decor. I like subtlety and the more earthy elements that encompass fall.  So for some inspiration today, I’ve rounded up 10 unique fall tables that incorporate some of the natural elements I love.

10 Unique Fall Tables

Pumpkins are great fall decor, but sometimes bright orange pumpkins aren’t ideal. White pumpkins are a great alternative. They offer that crisp and clean feel and go with almost any color scheme. I love the use of white pumpkins on this table along with grain sack, nuts and dried hydrangeas. Very simple. Sometimes simplistic can be the most beautiful.

Using seasonal fruit is another natural element you can incorporate into your fall table. Apples are a staple fall fruit. On this fall table, the apples not only add a touch of fall but also add a punch of color to an otherwise neutral color scheme.

Purple isn’t a color that I would normally gravitate towards, but I love this purple fall table. The color ties in great with the maple leaves used on each place setting and the color definitely goes with autumn.

This table could actually fit in with any season, but the natural elements like the wood chargers and brown place cards make me think of fall. The flower centerpieces incorporate some of the brown and orange hues typical of fall, but still incorporate additional colors that help brighten the table.

I mentioned that I love white pumpkins. I also love green cinderella pumpkins and I love how this table incorporates these fun pumpkins into the centerpiece along with gourds. The color scheme is so soothing and different than your typical fall arrangement.

This next table has a very similar soothing feel with the burlap runner, white pumpkins and teal ceramics. But, in addition to the pumpkins, there is another subtle hint of fall with the wheat bundles on each place setting. Great way to use everyday items and create a fall table with only a few minor natural element additions.

I love all the deep greens and browns used in this table. The sprig of basil for the place setting is a great way to incorporate some natural elements for your fall table.

What screams fall more than pinecones? Love the use of bundled pinecones mixed with white flowers for this table’s centerpiece.

Moss is another great addition to a fall table. This fall table incorporates not only moss but also birch placemats and brown cloth napkins that provide the perfect place setting for a fall dinner party.

While this table could fit in with any season, the rustic wood plank and addition of acorns adds the perfect rustic touch that is needed for a perfect fall table.

What type of fall tables do you love? Do you prefer lots of color, or do you like more natural color schemes?

Summer Picnic Essentials

Fall is rapidly approaching. While some welcome the cooler temperatures, I for one am not ready to see summer come to an end. I love all the summertime activities and outdoor events that take place this time of year. I love that you can go for a walk after dinner with daylight hours still left when you return.

This summer has been super busy for us. It has been filled with moving, traveling and wedding planning. Now that it is August, I’ve realized I’ve hardly done any ‘summery’ activities. So, I’ve decided that this weekend is to be filled with all kinds of summer-time activities. Something I’ve always wanted to do, but have never actually done, is have a picnic.

So, in the event that we get adventurous and have ourselves a picnic this weekend {and you yourself get the picnic bug}, I thought I would round-up some summer picnic essentials that would make one cute little picnic set-up.

Summer Picnic Essentials

one. Bamboo Picnic Plates // two. Picnic Basket // three. Glass Bottle // four. Picnic Napkins // five. Mason Jars // six. Colorblock Utensils // seven. Picnic Blanket

How cute are those colorblock utensils? And the picnic basket from Kate Spade is amazing!

Have you ever had a real picnic?

Here’s to having the most ‘summery’ weekend yet!

P.S. We did have a ‘fake’ picnic earlier this summer for our engagement pictures that may have included a few similar items from this round up. Hoping to reveal those pictures to you guys on the blog very soon!
