All of the details of this urban wedding shoot are stunning, but what really caught my eye were the gorgeous colors and textures. Any wedding that in corporates the color black this seamlessly is my kind of wedding. (I’m having a serious moment over the black and white houndstooth fabric napkins!) Designed by Charlie and Olivia with images by onelove photography, I’m not sure what I’m craving more, a posh themed dinner party or that gold Sarah Seven dress. According to Charlie & Olivia, “the inspiration for this shoot was fashion meets natural urban oasis”; fabulous, right?
Random, I know, but so impressed by Grayden and Jenny’s wedding website, and I had to share. The website is every bit modern, simple and user-friendly, and their headline photo looks right off of a movie poster – so cool.
Also, Grayden and Jenny’s engagement photos are nothing short of perfect – simple, clean, and filled with utter happiness.

I know this topic seems … well .. out there. But as you all know (because let’s face it, you’re researching every last detail for your wedding right now), the details matter (especially if you’re Type-A like me, and live for the effort.) We spend all of this time, money, and energy on our wedding invitations (the paper, the print, the design, the calligraphy), but how much thought is put into the stamp?
Your local post office likely has a wedding- or love-themed stamp available in bulk, and you can design your own stamp with sites like Zazzle and Perfect Postage. But what if you’re looking for something just a bit more chic than doves and self-adhesives?
Drumroll: meet your new best friend/obsession – the vintage stamp.
With vintage stamps, you can hunt for a theme or color scheme or particular stamps from the destination wedding locale, for that added bit of personalized charm.
And there is this amazing company, The Paper Nickel Stamp Company; they’ll put together any number of vintage stamps for you. Created & curated by the brilliant creative director, Holly Bedell, the shop’s vintage stamp collection boasts a huge assortment of usable postage stamps dating from 1900 – 1980, all to adorn the corner of your envelope.
“I like to think of stamps as tiny little posters,” says Holly. “Each is exceptional and individual and provides the ultimate finale to your mailing.”
Brilliant, I tell you.
The weddings and events that always stand out to me are those that dare to be different. That’s not to say that I don’t love a classic wedding, because boy do I; but, the statement pieces – just the same as in a stellar wardrobe – make the look! These neon accents have me wishing for a do-over (or enough money to throw the wedding part deux.) Would you dare to throw crazy neon accents into your big day?
