A Pocket of Sunshine

It’s been a really gloomy start to our December, so we have a pick-me-upper engagement for you to swoon over today. Kit and Teresa’s dreamy session with Amee Cheung Photography has everything we want and more — a sweet couple, beautiful pastel tones, a good dose of sunshine, and the best accessory ever: an adorable little Frenchie! If that combination doesn’t make you let out a big “Aww…”, then I don’t know what will. Here’s to brighter mornings ahead!

The Grandest Gesture

Today, we’re jetting off to neighboring Macau for a special wedding at the luxe Banyan Tree Hotel. Tobi and Michelle’s big day was filled with classic elements — from their muted teal and gold palette, to the bride’s lace Rosa Clara number, and the men’s black tuxedos. With such a grand venue as backdrop, their styling could not have been more on-point. Luckily for us, Nelwin Uy was there to meticulously capture all the details, so we have a lot of pinning to do today! Have fun!

Simple Pleasures

It’s been getting busier by the day with the holidays and year-end coming up, so today we are taking a moment to forget about our endless to-do lists and just be reminded of life’s simple pleasures. We’ve picked out Louis and Cathy’s picnic engagement captured by Blissfullysweet as the perfect visual for this exercise. It’s hard to find a more romantic (and inexpensive) date idea than a picnic. Free from distractions, the goal is simply to enjoy each other’s company. So my hope for the coming holiday rush is that in the midst of all the shopping, gift-giving, and parties that we all have to attend, we would not forget to treasure the relationships around us and to enjoy each moment like we would a perfect picnic. 17 days until Christmas!

Fashion Friday: Naeem Khan Bridal Fall 2016

Get ready to be wow’ed by Naeem Khan’s innovative and modern take on the wedding dress. My favorite thing about this collection is that he takes traditional silhouettes and recreates them in a really unconventional way, such as the fringe skirt or the floor-length cape jackets. The detailing on each dress is also drop dead gorgeous– between the beaded chevron and the hand-embroidered lace, I can barely get a breath in.

Let’s not forget to also mention that the styling for Khan’s latest Bridal collection is channeling some serious Frida Kahlo. I must admit that I love it! Why not show that extra bit of personality with the giant earrings and elaborate floral crown?

Bouquet Breakdown: Romantic Chic Bouquet

I’m sure your would remember Ivy and Wilson’s beautifully-styled wedding at the Verandah which we featured a few weeks back. There were so many noteworthy details from their wedding, but the definite standout for me was Ivy’s romantic chic bouquet by Lemongrass. Today, it’s taking the spotlight for our Bouquet Breakdown series. I love that it was just the perfect size with lots of interesting shapes and textures, and it had generously included one of my favorite flowers: peonies!
