I incorporated some of my most fave photos of all time for this post. After all, anyone who knows me knows garden parties and tea time have to be my number one wedding theme. Once upon a time when I was a tyke, I thought garden weddings were actually held in gardens amid rose bushes and dark soil. Once I was old enough to really catch on, the garden weddings I saw were on TV in old movies in black and white. Dated flicks aside, these afternoon socials aka garden parties were big in the 1920s-30s. Think Jay Gatsby and Katherine Hepburn. Fast forward to my designer years and I see just what you do here: the beauty of green and the vivid colors of florals, vintage fashion and all-around elegance.

A SPRING ELOPEMENT
I begin every post on elopements with the explanation elopements once upon a time could be a little bit to very taboo affairs. Running off to tie the knot usually meant you had to do it in secrecy. It still means the two of you slipping away, or getting away, only now there's no stigma. Some couples think of it as a celebration of intimacy--all the trimmings of a wedding just for you. Especially appropriate now because of the pandemic, here is your inspo for a spring getaway in the countryside. The bright, vivid pastels of pinks and yellows infused with white and greens say, the dawning of a new season is upon us--the beginning of our journey.

CHIC OF THE WEEK
Gowns with multiple skirts called tiers are incredibly romantic. The tiers on this one fall asymmetrically and are bordered lace that fall into a sweep train in back. Add an all over Chantilly lace bodice into the design and you have the perfect Boho bridal look. This white tulle gown was named after the beautiful Angelique who is wearing it. You can see more photos of this jewel on Etsy.

PIC OF THE WEEK
Here's some drama! A shot of Brooke looking every bit lovely in the ivory cathedral veil. Because this veil has so much length and character, we paired it up with a simpler silhouette. Surprisingly, it will work with more ornate gowns and come off looking spectacular! Read more about long veils here
