Many of us associate twinkle light with college dorm rooms and patio decor but we’re here to tell you that they can be the perfect final touch to your outdoor wedding. The ambiance created with the soft light given off by these tiny bulbs is hard to match and makes for a cozy, yet sophisticated atmosphere.

There are so many different way to incorporate these lights into your wedding, be it draping them in a canopy over your guests, using them as centerpieces, wrapping them around tree limbs, or even haphazardly hanging them behind your cake or welcome station — you will not regret adding twinkle lights to your outdoor wedding decor.

It’s not always the bridal session and portraits are featured and we’d like to change that! When you have a Marchesa wedding dress paired with the most glamorous Miu Miu heels how can you not?

This bridal shoot was taken with real-life bride, Heather, who wore a the stunning lace mermaid gown which she found at The Bridal Garden, a not-for-profit bridal boutique in New York City in which all proceeds benefit education for disadvantaged children. “It was awesome to know my purchase went to such a terrific cause! I bought it off the rack and it fit me almost perfectly!” says the bride.

This Incline Village wedding at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe is absolutely stunning. We love the deep red and purples incorporated into the decor and bright floral design from Art in Bloom. The entire day was captured by one of our favorite Lake Tahoe wedding photographers, Corey Fox Photography.

From the bride~
We always love going to Tahoe, it is our favorite place to go and the Hyatt is such a beautiful venue. We loved how where the ceremony was you could see the water through the trees and we always envisioned having the cocktail hour on the dock when we saw the venue.

Since it was in Tahoe we wanted it to have a Tahoe theme. We had all the decorations have lots of wood and pinecones incorporated throughout the tables to make it have a rustic feel. Even the invitations had a Tahoe theme with trees printed on them and Tahoe stamps. I wanted the flowers to be rich jewel tone pinks, reds and purples, so I kept the bridesmaids dresses very neutral in different shades of grey to really pop the flowers.

Now I must admit…I’m not a “pink” girl. I don’t own anything pink and it’s never the color that I would choose for any wall or home decor. But when I came across this gorgeous cake on instgram I just fell in love! There is something about a soft pink that is so utterly romantic. I love this half naked cake as well – it creates a rustic yet refined touch. And that giant bouquet on top – perfection!

Boho Hair Tutorial 1 As a wedding blogger, social media manager, and outdoor activity addict, I know how crazy life can get. Having just a few moments to put my hair together in the morning often means a ponytail or long and wet. So I was extremely excited when I found this simple boho hair tutorial from Rocky Mountain Bride. It’s quick, easy and looks incredibly stylish.

STEP ONE: Beginning with loose curls or straight hair, piece and pick up the hair on the right side of your temple.

STEP TWO: Gently twisting that piece, bring it across the back of your head to the left side. Stop behind your left ear.

STEP THREE: Secure in place with a bobby pin.

STEP FOUR: Piece and pick up the hair on the left side of your temple.

STEP FIVE: Gently twist that piece and bring it across the back of your head to the right side. Stop behind your right ear.

STEP SIX: Secure in place with a bobby pin. Repeat as desired using alternating pieces of hair from the left and right side. Voila!

The designer dress I love is outside my budget, but online it’s much cheaper. What gives?


Your wedding gown is probably one of the most expensive (and sentimental) pieces of clothing you’ll ever buy. And while online stores offering wild discounts can be tempting, it’s important to know what you might be getting. Some of these sellers are transparent about the fact that they are producing knockoffs; others claim to have a mysterious stockpile of designer frocks priced at a fraction of the retail cost.

Chances are, the creative genius behind the dress your adore had zero hand in making the bargain version sold online. Many of these garments are made in China, and most arrive as barely recognizable facsimiles of the ones they’re attempting to copy — think unfinished hems, visible threads, plastic beading, you get the point. Now add fit issues, shipping delays, sketchy return policies (if any), and that leads to wedding disaster!

Although, not all online stores are bad, of course. To make sure the gown you’re buying is legit, check to see that the business has a physical address, preferably in the United States. Then head over to the designer’s website for a list of authorized retailers; cross-reference to confirm that the online retailer and designer are, in fact, doing business together.

Remember that this piece of clothing may become a family heirloom. A less expensive option may save your dollars now but it’ll cost you in the long-run and save your sanity!

We love the idea of incorporating bright, pops of color into your wedding decor and palette. These elements can be as subtle or as extravagant as you want but we love pairing bright colors with the rustic charm that goes along with a Lake Tahoe wedding.

If these bright colors are too much for your partner we suggest incorporating them in a bridal shower or similar event.
