Weddings in Blue

With so many beautiful Wedding color palettes to choose from, I thought I would share some gorgeous and dreamy Blue inspirations!

What lovely Parisian inspiration captured by Corbin Gurkin photography found over at Style Me Pretty. The entire shoot is jaw dropping. Be prepared to swoon at the incredible collection of images.
I think these petite blue forget me nots make such a delightful table decoration for a cobalt blue accented wedding. Found on
 If you want something small but sassy for something blue, this petite navy hair flower with sparkling rhinestones is a great accessory for a Bride and her Bridesmaids. Found at Mikiye Creations.

 This is such a wonderful mixture of blue, lilac to purple hues.
Here are some flirty sexy blue ruffled peep toe shoes by Badgley Mischka.
 This navy suite is a wonderful alternative to the classic black suite. I like the pop of color added by the tie and boutonniere. Found at Brooks Brothers.
How absolutely STUNNING is this Art Deco Sapphire Diamond and Platinum Ring?!
This polka dot wedding invitation is modern, sophisticated and fun. This design is extremely versatile. Find these at appleberryink 
Dazzling Grace's Bird Cage Card Holders are beautifully decorated to evoke romance, love and pure elegance. These are so pretty, modern and unique. Find this at DazzlingGRACE
Here is another lovely bouquet with peonies, delpheniums and hydrangeas and roses.
Another great way to add that pop of color on the Groom. Found on

Vintage Inspired Headpieces New At Luxe in Bloom

A few years ago I was playing with some designs that had (what I like to think) a Marie Antoinette flare. I adore a little pomp and circumstance.
Since I just opened my Luxe in Bloom shop on Cloud Parade, I thought this is a perfect time to FINALLY list my one of a kind pieces!

I think they are so much fun and I must admit, I think you'll feel pretty FAB when you wear them!

Style #MH502

Styled by: Hope Stanley
Flowers: Bound

Style #MH505

Ultra girly with pink plumes and tulle, this mini hat design is such a flirty and playful design to wear!


Style #MH506

I'm really in love with this piece. It's sooo ultra feminine with soft dusky pink hues.

 I wanted to thank the fabulous people I worked with at a Bridal event for the first photo at the top.

An incredible photographer, Maria Longhi has a great eye for detail and beauty. If you are looking for a wonderful wedding photographer I highly recommend to check out her site. She does wonderful work.

Hope Stanley Bridal Stylist is a gem! Check out her FB page and see all the incredible work she does. If you have any question about what to wear and how to wear it, she's the one to call!

Bound Floral Event Studio is where I met the fabulously fun Rhonda Celland. If you follow me you'll know I have a LOVE for flowers and when I saw some of Rhonda's work I was drooling! So creative and gorgeous! As much as I love making them, I've never had the eye for creating jaw dropping arrangements. That takes a keen eye and sense of design. You must give her a call if in the market for flowers!

Last but not least, my ever so talented makeup artist friend Lisa O'Connor. She will enhance your radiance and glow for your special day. I've known her for years and this woman is an INCREDIBLE makeup artist. All skin colors, all ages, all styles. There are a LOT of makeup artist out there but only a hand full of truly skilled ones. She's one to make your Wedding complete!

Thanks everyone!!!!
