every once and a while, i’ll come across a wedding that pulls at my heartstrings in a special way. Today, Natalie and Michael’s charming celebration is just tugging away at my heart. First of all, how beautiful is Natalie’s dress? It has such an elegant feminine feel. I just love the sweet simplicity of the whole event–aren’t the lavender centerpieces such a lovely touch?

Michael and I got engaged the Christmas of 2008. I found out I was pregnant in February of 2009. We were officially married in April of 2009 at San Francisco city hall, and decided to continue the celebration with our friends and family in June 2010! I started to really plan in January 2010. Working full time and having a new baby, I knew I wanted to keep the wedding simple, beautiful, and elegant. I also wanted to make sure we had a lot of fun and unique details for our day, so with everything I had on my plate, I turned to my amazingly talented to friends. From the invitations, to the cake, the music, and the decorations our friends and family really helped to make our day so special! It was the best day!

Emily! Thank you so much, you are quite right. I can’t stop looking at this dress and forwarding this post along to everyone… I see that she had added sleeves to create that square neckline, and I’m smitten. What a perfect silhouette, and what inspiring wedding decor…

Ever since I saw those shoes on this post I have been searching EVERYWHERE for them. I know they’re by Stella McCartney, but any ideas what they’re called or where I could find them? I’m dying to have them for my wedding!
