wed / watters bridal

I do not get sick of beautiful wedding gowns whether I'm working with a bride at work or casually scrolling though Instagram. One line that continues to cause me to swoon is Watters. Between their presence in countless boutiques and BHLDN and their attainable price point, there is a dress for everyone! Here are some of my recent favorites:

Happy weekend! A and I are back and getting back into a normal work/life routine is harder than I thought it would be. I am slowly adjusting back will be back to a regular posting schedule next week. In the meantime I wanted to share one of my favorite Instagrams from the trip in case anyone missed it. If you need a Caribbean destination, I highly recommend our resort: Carambola Beach Resort in St Croix. 

Have a great weekend! I'll be resting, unpacking, and cleaning out in A's apartment to make room for myself :)

Tomorrow we leave for St. Croix and I am elated to finally have almost a whole week to just let go and relax with my favorite person. I'll be Instagramming along the way, so be sure to follow along! Any suggestions on the island are welcome too!

wed / tented south carolina wedding

When I saw this wedding on the Southern Weddings Mag blog, my jaw dropped. Not only was the family plantation a stunner, but the details were breathtaking. It was hard to pick just a few favorite photos, but be sure to see the whole wedding here. Those hardwood floors in the tent are truly one of a kind!

local / sip + eat

Have you had Taza chocolate yet? Locally made in Somerville, MA, Taza is stone ground, organic, and delicious! Taza is available in retailers all over, but you can of course buy directly from their website. I've had a few opportunities to taste Taza with wine and cheese (sometimes work is really hard) and I'm itching to host a pairings party of my own. 

Find their guides for wine, beer, and cheese

Host any pairings parties before? Any suggestions?

Passover starts tonight and while I'm never excited to give up bread and pasta, I am excited to host a Seder tomorrow night including a friend visiting and a friend who has never been to a Seder! Happy Easter too!

Speaking of Passover, I will never buy Manischewitz canned macaroons again after finding this recipe last year. 

These facts about time blew my mind!

Mini Dior video. Mesmerizing! 

I ordered a few books for beach reading! Only 11 more days!!!!! I picked up this, this, and this

Swoon. These spaces are so dark and stunning and I want to move in.

wed / ribbons

The always lovely Lauren Wells designed this fabulously beautiful Vermont wedding and the equally lovely Krissy from Pollen Floral Design created these bouquets. The flowers are of course gorgeous but the long trailing ribbons are just the prettiest thing I've ever seen! 

Here are a couple more be-ribboned bouquets:
