This week we love loved...

It's been a rough week.  Busy busy busy.  I barely had time to comb through the world of wedding blogs.  But, I may have stayed up a wee bit late to dig for inspiration and here are my favorites of the week.  

Cherry On Top Events created a bright and eclectic, probably one of my favorites ever on Green Wedding Shoes.

Via Snippet & Ink, this groom in this photo proposed to his bride with a banner on a plane, that banner became a bold wedding detail for the couple.  So sweet. 

DIY genius, Jen, from Something Turquoise, came up with these fun and silly emoji wedding cards.  That one pictured is for the bachelorette party, of course.

This sweet floral heart is such a charming touch on a wedding ceremony gazebo over on Wedding Chicks.

From gilded to greenery here are our favs from this week on the blogs.

This simple and bright floral tabble runner is the perfect detail to top off this free-spirited vintage wedding.  Florals by These Buds are Blooming.

The most beautiful Rocky Mountain camp wedding with details to rival the perfect views.

Such a lovely Catalonia Wedding with the bride looking perfect in a Santos Costura gown.

Five Ceremony Seating Alternatives

Creating ambiance isn't just for the reception anymore.  With more and more couples opting for an alternative to the church wedding, the opportunity to bring more personality to the ceremony presents itself.  I am such a fan of bringing the look of the wedding into every aspect, so these five alternatives to traditional ceremony seating do just that.  

Using Found Rentals beautiful church pews, Twine Events created a sweet outdoor chapel feel.  

For this barn wedding the couple used bales of hay and I love the added charm and comfort of the mix and match quilts.

And for a rustic alternative, this couple made benches from stumps and boards. 

The bride's mother handmade these pillows for a bohemian picnic feel in an almond orchard!

Love & Splendor created a colorful, welcoming ceremony seating area of eclectic mixed sofas from Found Vintage Rentals.

Anyone gearing up for a fabulous New Years Party?  I love hosting, but at 7 months pregnant, this year, will be a lot more low key than in past.  I happened to gravitate toward images that would make fabulous New Years Eve inspiration.  

An over-the-top NYE gals night inspiration shoot by Beijos Events, here.  Seriously obsessed.

One of the most beautifully sophisticated cakes I have ever seen, from this shoot.

a one-shouldered ruffled gown, one of Snippet & Ink's favorite dresses of the year.

and if you don't know, now you know, I love love ceiling installations of any kind!  This one is so so cool!
