highlight of my week!

It was just another Wednesday afternoon. I was sitting in the lobby of a DC hotel, talking with one of my lovely brides, when I noticed the most fabulous pair of tights. Naturally, I look up to checkout the rest of the ensemble and find... SJP! Seriously?! She's strolling through the lobby (very low key) looking completely Carrie Bradshaw. I die. My celebrity sighting could not have been any better! SJP was in Washington, DC this week for the 2009 National Medal of Arts/National Humanities presentation (photo below). Highlight of my week!

Jenny Lee Trunk Show

I'm quite fond of Jenny Lee gowns. I wore Jenny Lee on my wedding day almost four years ago (seriously... it seems like just yesterday!). Carine's Bridal Atelier is hosting a Jenny Lee Trunk Show on February 18th-20th. Brides will have the opportunity to purchase a Jenny Lee gown at 10% off of the retail price. Sweet! Happy shopping!

Contact Carine's at (202) 965-4696 to schedule an appointment.

mega inspiration

I've found my latest obsession (thanks to one of my lovely brides)! I'm pretty much in love with erin. ever. after. How did I not stumble upon this gem of a blog sooner?! We're talking serious inspiration here. I'm giddy with excitement!

Loving this little number... and the red soles, of course.

Yes, please!

Thread Bridesmaid

If you're searching for that perfectly fabulous dress for your most favorites ladies- search no longer! I'm loving Thread's chic line of bridesmaid dresses. The collection is fun, stylish and your girls really can wear them again. I know we always hear that but this time it's true! I'm partial to short bridesmaid dresses (especially with matching shoes!) but found a couple of floor length gowns that have me swooning, too. It was hard to choose but below are a few of my favorites.

paloma's nest

I love Paloma's Nest ring bearer bowls. They're such a sweet variation from the traditional satin pillow (I don't love :)). These delicate little bowls are handmade and stamped with the message of your choice. What a great keepsake for those two very special rings! You can find these little treasures on Etsy. Enjoy!
