Valentine's Day Wedding Inspiration

I love it when a favorite pinner, in my case it's usually glitzandlove on the Chic Vintage Wedding Inspiration board, pins lots of beautiful inspiration in a color theme, all at the same time.  Even if they're not colors I would choose, seeing all the pretty clustered in one spot is fun.  Today, it was lots of pink and red inspiration.  Those colors always make me think of Valentine's Day, so cheerful and festive!  Writing about Valentine's Day anything right now seems super premature (and it probably is), but I figure if you're planning a February wedding, now's the time to be figuring out details.  So I've compiled some of the best of the Chic Vintage Wedding pins and added a few of my own!  Enjoy!

Home Improvement Around My House: A Window Seat!

B and I had a blast doing the Parade of Homes this weekend.  The Parade is made up of open houses around the county, showcased by local builders and renovators.  It's a great time and an opportunity to get some awesome inspiration for home improvement.  One of the (absolutely gorgeous, expensive luxury) homes had a beautiful built-in window seat.  I've wanted a window seat since I was about 8 years old... and I'm 30 now!  While I was gushing, B said very matter-of-factly, "You know I could build you one."  Um yes.  So now, of course, I'm going nuts planning it all out.

This is about what we're thinking:

Happy Halloween! Celebrating with some Halloween wedding inspiration...

I love Halloween.  It's one of my favorite holidays and the preparations around here can get as frantic and chaotic as the days before Christmas.  We got to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party this year, which is always a good time.  We were super busy in the days leading it up to it, getting our costumes ready... we went as the War Doctor and Rose Tyler/The Moment's Interface, super nerdy costumes!  Not quite as recognizable as our costumes last year, the 11th Doctor and the Tardis, but the people who did know what we were were super excited about it.  Last year, we were like movie stars.  Both fun!

Anyway,  I'm getting sidetracked.  I'd love to have a Halloween wedding.  Whether it happens for me remains to be seen, but either way, I thought I'd celebrate by putting together some Halloween wedding inspiration.

I have another variation on a Halloween Wedding bumping around in my head, so maybe I'll be back after the fact with another mood board, but for now, here's a start!  I like a subtle theme: pumpkins, lots of grey and black, shimmering metallics, candles, and a few spiderwebs and coffins here and there.

And I can't talk about Halloween weddings without sharing my favorite inspiration photo from Mary + Stefan's Artsy Halloween Wedding on Green Wedding Shoes....

Happy Halloween! Boo to you!

Leu Gardens Weddings

So last week, I wrote about Leu Gardens, a great Central Florida day trip.  While researching to write that post, I found lots of images of weddings there!  So this week, I thought I'd share what a great wedding venue it is... in addition to a fun place to visit!
