A little while ago, some of you asked me to start featuring more wedding dresses (yes, a surprising lack of posts in that area for a wedding blog) but I wasn’t really falling head over heels in love with anything I was finding. I blame wedding burn out from my own planning!
Anyway, I found this designer, Romona Keveza, a little while back and had it bookmarked, and when I revisited the collection’s site, suddenly I was struck by how close the dresses were to my personal design taste! Probably my favorite aspect of these designs is that they’re simple in their overall aesthetic but they’ve got really great details that make them special – slick, but sweet. I love the draping of the fabric and the way it hangs off the body, too – it makes them a lot more “all body type” friendly!

I was waiting to see more shots from Leah and Michael’s Pop Up Wedding by Martha that had been getting a lot of early buzz on blogs and – oh my freakin’ gosh – I think my heart stopped when I saw this cake. If you’re a paper lover like me, you might be experiencing that same, slow motion meets soft focus meets cliche orchestrated love theme moment I had. I couldn’t not share this!
The whole wedding is really inspirational – I wish I had seen this before my wedding! While it’s probably a little less formal than my parents would have let me get away with (they were paying for most of it so some of the details were out of my hands) this really would have been so influential on how I visually approached my wedding. It’s really a must-see!
