I don’t know about you, but I could look at wedding photos for hours on end (actually, I do…). There is so much inspiration out there that it’s impossible to ever get tired of looking. I have a feeling I’m going to be in serious wedding inspiration withdrawal when my wedding is over. This has actually been a pretty quiet wedding planning week for me. I’m mainly working on an invitation design and deciding on a honeymoon destination. Hope you are all enjoying your Wednesday! Oh and don’t forget to enter the Pink Papaya contest for your chance to win one of my favorite products!
For this Wedding Wednesday I thought I’d share some of my own engagement photos that my fiance and I took with our incredible photographer- Brett Matthews Photography! We took them in Central Park on a gorgeous day in October (we got really lucky!)… I’m sure everyone is getting ready for their Thanksgiving feasts and I want to wish you all safe travels to your destinations. Happy Thanksgiving :)
love the silhouette of this dress…
If all goes well, this week could possibly be the most successful wedding planning week thus far. A lot of things are getting crossed off my to-do list which makes me very, very happy! Among the items getting crossed off the list? Hair and makeup trials, day-of transportation, invitations, and ceremony music.
I couldn’t help adding the last photo in.. Once you scroll down, you’ll see why! It’s been a busy week on set styling a photo shoot and I haven’t had a lot of time to think about wedding things, so this was a nice excuse to gather some inspiration. Enjoy!
I haven’t given an update on my wedding planning in a while and things have been pretty busy. This past weekend, we had our tasting at the venue, and we also found our rehearsal dinner spot (check, check). Our main focus at the moment is planning our honeymoon (suggestions welcomed!), ceremony music (harp or string duo?) and booking day-of transportation. Once those items are finalized, I’ll be moving on to invitations (I’m sure my indecisive nature will make this task challenging). We recently had our engagement photography session in Central Park and I’m just itching to get the prints! In the meantime, here’s some wedding inspiration…
Pretty, Pretty, Pumpkins!

As my friends can attest, I typically love a dark, grim Halloween. But this year I was feeling a little more glam than goblin. So with the inspiration of Miss Martha Stuart, a dab of glue and a sprinkle of glitter, Halloween has never looked so beautiful! Whether you’re looking for a craft for the kiddies, outdoor décor, or a beautiful dinner table centerpiece, follow this DIY and bippity-boppity-boo your way to an impressive (and inexpensive!) Halloween!
Elmer’s glue, $2
Pumpkin (5”-8” diameter), $1- $3
1” sponge brush, $1
Newspaper/brown paper shopping bag
Bowl, cup, lid (to hold glue)
1. Lay newspaper down on your table/craft surface. (I also recommend using brown, paper shopping bags, as their already creased edges make it very easy to pour excess glitter back into the container. Just slice it up one side and cut off the bottom.)
2. Wash and thoroughly dry your pumpkin.
3. Feel like being fancy? With a pencil, draw or lightly impress the outline of your design directly onto your pumpkin.
4. Pour glue into bowl.
5. Using your sponge brush, generously apply Elmer’s glue to a section of your pumpkin. (You’ll have to use your judgment, as you do not want the glue to start drying.)
6. Generously sprinkle glitter atop the glue–Do not be shy!!! The excess glitter will be caught on your newspaper/paper bag and can be reused.
7. Continue steps 5 and 6 until you have a PRETTY, PRETTY, PUMPKIN!
8. Lay on tin foil to dry.
Tip: It is helpful to have a buddy! As you continue to cover your pumpkin in glitter, it can get tricky to hold, glue, and glitter with just your two hands. It is doable, but if you have a friend, grab ‘em…..especially if you are working with a larger pumpkin!
