My favorite part of blogging the handmade wedding world is the ability to showcase jaw-dropping, heart-stopping, be-still-my-heart wedding finds by extremely talented artists. It is a dream to be surrounded by such an overload of gorgeousness on a daily basis and we love you, dear readers + artists + photographers for brilliantly capturing every last detail)! Awwwww. Ok, back on topic… ;)
I spotted PaperHill today and it was one of those “WOW” moments. I have been a fan of the bridal cuff re-emerging onto the bridal scene (back in the day they were apparently all the rage) but I admit I’m not the biggest fan of all the lace. I do like lace, but in moderation of course.
Long story short, I found these cuffs and think they were an absolutely adorable twist on the vintage cuff. Wear to your engagement party, rehearsal, shower, wedding – you name it. Scroll down to see a smattering of a few color choices (and scroll all the way down for another reason why we LOOOOVE PaperHill):
And, the icing on the cake? PaperHill also sells this DIY kit to make it yourself! A charming gift for bridesmaids, perhaps? Personalize ‘em up by adding their initial somewhere (how sweet). A true artisan willing to share her talent with the world!
P.S. READERS: What are your thoughts on the bridal cuff? Love it? Leave it? Share below :)

We spotted this gorgeous card box at Creative Custom Cardboxes and it’s as sweet as can be! We think it would be perfect for upcoming fall / winter weddings, with its lush wine and gold color scheme and delightful pearl accents. Satin ribbon (soft as can be!) is the icing on the cake! We LOVE!

Are you a bride who changes her mind … a lot? In fact, when you get ready to go out somewhere, do you end up trying on a few different outfits before deciding on the one? Are you pretty finicky about what your gown will be like, since you can’t decide on the type of neckline? (P.S. I am definitely an indecisive woman, at least when it comes to fashion. I definitely have my share of outfit switcheroos before a night out. But, who doesn’t?)
Well, brides, you’re in luck. For the indecisive bride, we bring you… the “Chameleon Convertible Gown” (appropriately named!) by the lovely Isadora Clothing. One gown, tons of possibilities.
Who knows… the morning of your wedding, you may just feel like going strapless. Just sayin’.

When TenThings joined the marketplace at Emmaline Bride, we were ecstatic! This mix of cali, bohemian, surfer, rocker and classic-inspired jewelry is simply stunning. Each piece Kerri Jones (designer) creates is even lovelier than the last – and we’re thrilled to feature her gorgeous work!
These pieces make perfect gifts for the bride-to-be, for your ‘maids, or for your mom (and mom-in-law). Or, just buy ‘em because they’re so lovely! We especially adore the “LOVE” necklace above. Very Carrie Bradshaw-ish and, yes, fabulous. Enjoy! xo

Stunning, Stunning, Stunning! We’re just in love with Erin and Shaun’s Girdwood, Alaska wedding, captured by the talented Renee Vanni Images.
First, read this super-sweet engagement story shared by Renee:
“On Labor Day, they made a climb to the top of Flat Top Mountain of Anchorage, Alaska. The fall colors were beautiful. As the Fall air grew more chilly, Shaun headed to a small bench with a large rock boulder behind it, to block the wind. Believe it or not, the clouds parted and sun poked through. Shaun then grabbed Erin’s hand and assumed the proper position, by kneeling down. He then told her how much he loved her and asked her to be his wife. He knew that Erin would want to choose her own ring, so in lieu of having a ring for this moment, he held a small heart shaped rock. The same rock that Erin had given him years before and it travels with Shaun in his flight bag.”
Erin and Shaun’s wedding took place on June 19, 2010 at the hotel Alyeska Resort in Alaska. The ceremony was held inside a small intimate log chapel (how romantic!). Afterward, hey pulled away in a vintage 1950′s Mercedes provided by owner, Hank. LOVE it.
