Bridal Inspiration: To Clutch or not to Clutch….

A purse is every girl’s best friend…besides diamonds of course. And you can make the ultimate statement as a bride with a fabulous clutch accessory. Whether you have a spring wedding with a floral clutch, or a black and white wedding with a lace clutch – you can carry your most important wedding day items – a $20 bill, lipstick, mints, tissues and maybe even your cell phone. Hand your clutch to your MOH or wedding planner, but make sure to grab it on your way out the door – trust me…anything goes with a wedding dress!

Carley & Jon: Black, White & Fabulous Chic

What do you get when you combine a bride, a vineyard estate and 400 friends and family? A gorgeous black and white Oregon summertime wedding! As the guests arrived to the Dillon/Osborne Wedding they were greeted with sparkling water, champagne and scrumptous appetizers. Carley and Jon enjoyed sunset nuptials amongst parasols and carnation pommanders. Their guests sipped on personalized cocktails during the cocktail hour and enjoyed some evening dancing under the stars to a 10-piece band. One of the many highlights of the evening was the secret “thriller” dance that Carley and her father busted out during the father/daughter dance. As the evening turned to night, guests tore up the dance floor to the tunes of a dj and the evening finally came to an end as the bride and groom drove away in style.

Shannon & Brian: Old Hollywood Glam Chic

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Frank Sintra and Marilyn Monroe. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. All fabulous Old Hollywood couples and the fabulous 40s were the perfect inspiration for Shannon and Brian’s December wedding in Palm Springs at The Parker. From the bride’s swooping satin dress to the hollywood glam Parker design their celebration was nothing short of spectacular. The phenomenal photographer Braedon, captured the evening with 8mm film to give a little extra glam to the perfectly chic evening. In my mind, Shannon and Brian will go down as a fabulous hollywood couple!

Karlee & Ben: Vintage Vineyard Chic

In August, Karlee and Ben celebrated their union amongst the grapes of the Willamete Valley. Uniting under a sparkling chandelier, their 10 year realationship finally became official with their family & friends tearful smiles looking on.  Karlee’s unique style and chicness were quiet evident from the burlap table runners, lavender lined ceremony aisle, antique type writer guest book and hand-written chalkboards. I hope this real wedding will inspire you as much as Karlee and Ben’s love did me!
