Today I’ve complied an extra special mood board based on one of my favorite wedding themes – A Shabby-Chic Rustic Romance! Using the color palette of creams and whites, soft pink and luxurious hints of matte and sparkling gold, I’ve put together some great inspiration to get you started on your own planning journey! With homespun accents, handmade favors, burlap and vintage-inspirations abound, I hope it sparks your creativity just as much as it did mine! Enjoy!

And, now we’re counting down the top 15 ways we came up with to use them – at your wedding and beyond! Enjoy! Continue reading
Alison + Shaun had a colorful Colorado wedding this past August. With bright pops of red amidst light blue, white and tan their wedding is a color dream that’s fun, playful and absolutely beautiful. I am especially in love with the homespun elements they incorporated into their design like their handmade flowers, cute dessert bar and their affinity for daisies. It’s the perfect wedding to inspire dreams of summer and romance – plus don’t miss our Love Bird Napkins and “Sippers” Paper Straws in their cameo’s at Alison + Shaun’s big day too!
Caitlyn + Chris had an amazing wedding with lots of handmade details. From their family made wedding cake to their heartfelt DIY details, their wedding shows crafting at its’ finest! I am especially in love with their mix of natural and modern elements which gives their wedding a look all it’s own! Congratulations you two on your gorgeously handcrafted day!!
Irene + Matt’s Mediterranean vintage inspired wedding is beyond gorgeous! I had the unique pleasure of talking with Irene all about her big day and it was treat to know what inspired such an amazing wedding design. With gorgeous purple accents, a bridal hairstyle that still has me breathless and fun photos that really show both Irene + Matt’s personalities, this wedding is the perfect inspiration for choosing wedding color palettes and themes. Congratulations you two!
Ally + Shaun had a gorgeous homespun wedding in Maine this past September. I love how their friends and family pitched in to help with all the DIY details that truly made their day unique! From the homemade treats to the laid back mason jar drinks, it’s simple to see Ally + Shawn’s personalities are woven into each part of their intimate wedding. Congratulations you two, it looks like it was a blast!
You couldn’t ask for a more picture perfect wedding day. I had the chance to talk with both the bride and the photographer, each of which filled me in on the magic of this wedding day (along with being absolutely lovely). Sarah + Simon really wanted to infuse their personalities into the whole day and with their plethora of DIY details they certainly did just that! In fact, they even told me they decided on their March destination wedding in breathtaking San Francisco after originally having planned on throwing a local October affair! With the backdrop of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge for their photos, the sightseeing tour bus they booked and their midnight trip to the bowling alley, their wedding is a treat to see and share! Enjoy!

Yeah! It’s the long weekend and I have an exclusive peek into our newest Weddingstar Style Lookbook, The Blue Color Story. It’s coming out right away, and I’ll have an entire post to fill you with wedding inspiration galore. But, until then, here’s a quick look to whet your appetite!
It is not too often that I receive a submission with a staged photoshoot, and less often that I will accept them. However this particular one is so incredibly stunning, there wasn’t a chance I was going to deprive all our fabulous readers!
This vintage but ‘not your Grandma’s wedding’ style shoot was submitted by Christy Whitehead Photography. I’ll let them explain, “This was a stylized shoot that we did at an old sawmill. We had tails for the groom and a lacy dress for the bride. Handmade cameos are featured on the cake. We even had an actual family marriage certificate displayed in a frame on the sign in table. We loved the idea of mismatched place settings and the feel of you pulled this stuff out of your grandmother’s trunk. [It is] very much a possible do it yourself project on a budget.”
