Well Travelled Bride

I’ve really been impressed by the beautiful work that Kelsey Genna and Yvette Edwards have been doing for their new project Well Travelled Bride. Kelsey brings her stunning bridal dress creations and knowledge of amazing international venues that is fostered by savvy wanderlust. Yvette is a masterful florist and prop stylist who creates epic bouquets, floral accessories, and arrangements, as well as looking after the little details that make a ceremony extra special. Well Travelled Bride combines all their insights and skills, making it an excellent wedding guide resource for people looking to tie the knot, honeymoon, or have another fabulous affair. Bridal can get so plain and stodgy — I love what they’re doing.

I love the first story below about some lovely ladies who elope to Wellington, New Zealand, in a helicopter for a gorgeous clifftop ceremony with both brides wearing dreamy dresses by Kelsey Genna and the floral arrangements by Yvette Edwards are incredible and put the romance over the top. Besides inspiration, the WTB stories offer loads of information about their resources. The second story below about a couple having their destination wedding in Bali is beautiful as well (that venue!). There are many more beautiful ideas HERE.

Friday!

honey-kennedy-harpers-bazaar-by-jeanloup-sieff-1962

HAPPY FRIDAY, friends! I hope you have a lovely one! I’m REALLY looking forward to relaxing with fancy cocktails and really good spaghetti tonight. It’s supposed to rain all weekend and next week, so I probably won’t get to everything I want to do in the garden. Oh, well. I’m still fighting the tail end of the stupid cold I got 2 weeks ago, so maybe some lazy home time should be in the cards anyways. Is anyone else watching Outlander? I’m so into it and need to catch up from the past few weeks. Maybe a perfect weekend for it. xo Jen

House of Baltic Linen

There’s so much beautiful bedding at House of Baltic Linen right now. Of course, we all know that I’m a bit of a linen hoarder, but I think these are also a great gift idea for wedding season if you know the couple well enough to go rogue from the registry. I’ve personally got my eye on the Charcoal Heavyweight Linen Coverlet, the Grey & White Striped Linen Duvet Cover, the Navy Ticking Heavy Linen Summer Blanket, the Dove Grey Linen Duvet Cover, the Dove Grey Linen Euro Cases, the Natural Striped Linen Pillowcases, the Light Grey Stonewashed Linen Sheets, and the matching Light Grey Linen Cases with Ruffle. That’s my very edited list because everything in the shop is gorgeous. More HERE.
