Today’s feature is everything Lady Grey. From the unexpected engagement ring and the poppy lip color to the gold wedding dress and festive donuts. And clearly that bouquet had us at hello. It’s a little whimsy, and a little feisty; playful yet elegant. We can’t be more excited to share this collaboration between photographer, Sara Hasstedt, event designer Ashley Nicole, and floral designer Cori Cook.

Today's feature comes to us from Clary Pfeiffer, who put to use Sun Prints in order to hand craft a gorgeous wedding concept. What are Sun Prints? Glad you asked! Sun prints are a paper or material that shows the negative of whatever object you put on it, in this really gorgeous blue. I've always been in love with this paper and built a wedding around it using wheat and warm metallics. The groom's pocket square, invitations liner, table runner and napkins are all sun prints. Even better, you get a bonus DIY project with today's feature. Head on over to Once Wed to find out how to get this look for yourself!

Today's feature is totally Lady Grey. It's a combination of quirky Kate Spade-esque phrases and sparkle, yet set against a backdrop with a heft dose of history and romance. Oh–and then the images, oh so beautifully shot Brosnan Photgraphic with art direction and styling by Pearl & Godiva that pull the seemingly opposite looks together.

When Bryan and I were planning our wedding, one of the locations that I DESPERATELY wanted to get married at was Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyards. Located on a vineyard in Charlottesville, Virgina, Pippin Hill is one of the most gorgeous venues I’ve ever seen! We are so excited to be able to announce that they are offering a Winter Weddings Collection package, that not only allows you the opportunity to host a cozy winter destination wedding in the picturesque venue, but also gives you several added perks and savings to make it even sweeter!

If you book your wedding from December 1 to March 16, your package will include goodies like spiced cider and hot chocolate to welcome guests, s’mores, event insurance, and even day of coordination! Want to see some real weddings at Pippin Hill??? Head here! 

To show off Pippin Hill, here are images by Eric Kelley from a shoot we featured last year (one of our all time faves!!!). The first image below is by Elisa B. You can see more of these images here and here. To find out more about hosting your wedding at Pippin Hill, download their entire brochure here.
