Fun and Festive New Orleans Wedding

Austin Gros recently sent over the beautiful New Orleans wedding of Whitney and Parker. You may recognize Whitney as the designer behind the adorable brand, Whit, so it should come as no surprise to why the bride, groom, and entire bridal party look as stylish as they do. Their wedding was also featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, which you can check out here for more details and images.

Elegant English Manor Outdoor Wedding

As the weather changes and I see the beginnings of Spring blooming everywhere in Atlanta, this wedding gets me in the spirit for the impending Spring season and so many outdoor weddings to come. The lush setting of this English Manor outdoor wedding is perfection especially with such a delightful couple and lovely details sprinkled throughout.

DIY Wedding Wax Paper Lanterns

DIY-wax-paper-lanterns-wedding-decor-lighting-tutorial

We loved these great luminaria (shown below) that Kelly Wilkinson shared on A Practical Wedding so much that we wanted to share them with you here, too! They are so budget friendly and easy to do, and create such a nice ambiance….that’s a win in our books! Kelly lays out a more detailed tutorial…if you feel like you need extra instruction I definitely recommend it. But basically, you just iron some foliage or petals (or whatever else that’s flat) between wax paper, cut them into equal panels (we just traced a template), tape the panels together using washi or scotch tape, and then we hot glued some little balsa wood sticks for added support, but you don’t have to… (The balsa wood sticks are super cheap and available at most craft stores. You could also use little twigs though if you want them to look more rustic.)
