I am seeing the glow of marquee signs in a lot of weddings as of late, and I love the detail they bring to the table. These are perfect as a backdrop, an addition to a bar or sweets table or with your new monogram or new last name. How would you love to see a marquee sign incorporated into your wedding day? Here are a few fun ideas to take a look at!

Whether you have a sweetie or not, and whether you believe in celebrating Valentine’s day traditionally, in a quirky way, or not at all, we hope you believe in celebrating love. Love in its many forms is a powerful and beautiful thing, and so today, we say hooray to love and loved ones!

February is here, and February is also known as the month of love. Valentine’s Day is this week, and we’ve got lots of pink and red and love inspired ideas to share with you! Of course weddings and engagements are already inspired by love, but Valentine’s Day has a way of making love seem extra special and stand out just a little bit more. Here are a few of my favorite red, pink and heart inspired trends to consider for your engagement sessions, bridal showers and wedding days. Enjoy!

Tis the season for love and engagements! As engagements are likely popping up all over your Facebook and Twitter newsfeeds these past few weeks, likely are the engagement photo shoots too. Currently trending are holiday and winter themed engagement sessions, which also double as the perfect holiday card to send out as a save-the-date or engagement announcement this time of the year. Here’s a look at a few of the favorites I’ve spotted throughout the season. Happy Holidays!

It’s be a while since the last love inspiration. Found this one one a blog I recently found, Le Love.


Le Love

I whole-heartedly agree (boy, have I been using that word a lot lately).


So You’re Engayged”

In honor of one of the FI’s cousins getting married today, I am sharing this lovely quote!
