I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

There was just too much lovely stuff to fit into one post, so today we’ve got two great features from Alicia over at Details Details and photographer Samuel Lippke has such a perfectly classic gorgeous bridal style, he’s the kind of guy whose work won’t go out of style.

Their shoot at the Montage Beverly Hills extends beyond the wedding, just to convey how you can utilize a venue like theirs for your entire wedding weekend. Whether you are a destination bride from states away, or a bride that lives locally, I love the idea of creating a destination experience for yourselves and your guests, by planning your wedding weekend at a vacation worthy spot, whether or not it’s a flight away. Here are some images of a bridal tea, and weekend lounging, which to me, are the perfect way to round out a wedding weekend.

Montage Beverly Hills Bridal Tea

This bridal tea is complete with with a fresh fruit tarts, macaroons, caramel cream puffs, scones and tea sandwiches, all created by Pastry Chef Richard Ruskell. What a perfect way to treat your girlfriends, before heading to Rodeo drive for an afternoon of shopping. Talk about girly, no?

In addition to the bridal tea, how can you resist lounging by the pool? I’m definitely planning on finding a way to fit cocktails and sun lounging during my wedding weekend if at all possible. Heading into your wedding relaxed is a definite must, right?
