Romantic Southern Beach Wedding

When a bride has been dreaming about her wedding since she was 13,  you know it’s going to be like something out of a fairy tale, and this dreamy Florida wedding most certainly is. From the elegant venues of the Carillon, to the most breathtaking mixture of pink and red blooms, to a night of dancing under the stars, every detail is so romantic. I love the peaceful joy on the bride and groom’s faces in every picture, and their seaside portraits are some of the prettiest I’ve seen to date. Enjoy!

Whimsical Spring Brunch Wedding

Spring was the farthest thing from my mind during my weekend in Syracuse, where it snowed on and off the whole time, but yesterday, Austin decided to show off with a glorious 86 degree day. Now I can’t stop thinking about spring flowers in abundance, Easter-reminiscent pastels, and al fresco brunches. Today’s inspiration board is a collection of all those things: a spring Sunday brunch wedding full of soft peach, mint and pink hues, charming details, and one of the prettiest cakes I’ve ever seen.

Sweet Southern Plantation Wedding

I was so delighted to receive this charming Charleston wedding in my inbox a few weeks ago, and ever since I started scrolling through the pictures, I’ve been extra excited for spring!.  Between the flowy J. Crew bridesmaid dresses, the completely gorgeous bouquets, the cowboy boots to change into for the reception, and some of the prettiest portraits I’ve ever seen, this wedding is the perfect way to kick off March here on Something Pretty.

Girly Glamour

As I mentioned last week, I’m putting fun inspiration boards together for my roommates and friends–basically, if I could plan all of their future weddings, this is what I would choose for them. This particular board was designed with my fashion-loving roommate, who is obsessed with the 20’s and 50’s, classic movies, Marchesa, and the color pink, in mind. When I asked her if something was too girly, she said “Is there really such a thing?” :)

From the 50’s-influenced Marchesa gown to the groom who isn’t afraid to rock a pink shirt, I think this board turned out perfectly for her! You can check out the board I posted for one of my other roommates here.

Gold NYE Wedding Inspiration

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We’re finishing up the year on Something Pretty in the prettiest way I could think of–a glamorous, sparkly, gold and pink New Year’s Eve wedding inspiration shoot that was brought to life by some of Dallas’ finest. This shoot, in a word, just makes me happy. When I started blogging over two years ago, my reason was to write about things that do just that, and this shoot reminded me of my original goal in a big way. So cheers y’all, to the perfect bouquet wrapped in gold sequin ribbon, to personalized champagne labels, to seriously stylish cake tables, and to making 2013 the happiest year yet!
