anthropologie makes wedding dresses?

No one loves the Anthropologie/Urban Outfitters brand more than me. Seriously. Well, I think I just heard angels sing on high, because they announced recently that they will be unveiling their wedding collection in Spring of 2011. {do we have to wait this lllooooooong?} Now there is a wedding collection for every type of bride, and specifically one for the bohemian chic!!!

The line will begin online sales first before branching into the storefronts with their yet-to-be-determined inventory. Dresses will be created with the Anthropologie label, and run from $1,000 to $5,000. 'Bridester' goods that will be available through the new wedding collection will include registery gifts, bridestermaids dresses, jewelry and other accessories, possibly flowers, planning, and travel services...maybe even, as New York magazine suggests, 'Urban Outfitter bikes with branded toilet paper trailing off the, I would be more than amped to shoot that wedding! xo

a bohemian chic wedding.

The thing about bohemian chic is that there really aren't any rules. :) The idea is to go with what moves you. I'm a huge fan of simple lines in a wedding dress and this long Anita dress is the perfect blend of sexy and boho. Because of the amazing cut and purity in the silk of the dress, you don't need a lot of bling {your ring is it} and maybe a delicate rose-gold cuff. Beautifully complimenting the bride is a similar silhouette in the Kimon dress for bridesmaids both by Elizabeth and James. With all the influx of color, I can so appreciate getting back to demure with blush tones and color accents. Talk about going beyond the one-wear strategy of a wedding day...the bride's rose-gold Jeffrey Campbell "Jaya" and the bmaids' Michael Kors gladiators will kick it long after the nuptuals. I have been loving bib necklaces, and this one, crafted by EmersonMade is both feminine and funky. What an awesome gift! The mason jar cupcakes looking positively yummy, the vintage birdcages, and the freshly-picked tablescape tie the knot on the 'I do's for me! Oh...and maybe with a little help from the dashing groom in his linen suit, skinny tie, and whimsical little boutonnieres made of fabric. mmmm, wedding planning anyone? xo

Surfin' Love...

Who needs waves when you've got your honey? This couple is super laid-back and always ready to chill. We thought there was no better way of helping them escape the hustle of wedding planning than setting up some down time on the beach. We started with a couple of cold ones for the happy couple, and in no time, they had cuddled into our session for some QT in the sand and surf. There's nothing like a day in the water in my opinion, and I think Stephanie and Bo would agree. :) We all had a great time. I'm amp...ed for their big day coming up. Thank you to Tara, as always, for getting inside my head and helping me make it happen! Much love to you S + B! xo
