Hello, hello! We spotted these waterproof custom beer labels over at Girl in Gear Studio and we think they’re pretty amazing.

If you and your honey brew your own beer, or you’d like something personalized to go over your favorite brew at your reception, you’ve come to the right place.

Hello, hello! To kick off this beautiful Thursday morning, we’re sharing an Illinois engagement with vintage details! Arsine and Topher arrived at their Illinois engagement shoot prepared with two cars full of vintage accessories and props. They met with the talented Kristin LaVoie Photography in Libertyville at Firkin, where Topher proposed to Arsine. To make their shoot memorable, they incorporated hobbies they like to do as a couple: skateboarding, biking, and having a picnic in a scenic grassy knoll. Once they reached the picnic area, they shared cheese, crackers, and wine, while their little pup joined in on the fun.

Good morning, lovelies! I spotted this amazing tablescape and had to share it… immediately. This vintage inspired tablescape would be perfect for either a bridal shower or a wedding. I love the pop of lavender – both the color and the sprig placed on the plate – and the lace ties the vintage look together perfectly. The metal place ‘cards’ are my favorite touch, and since it would take plenty of bridehours to make 100+ metal place ‘cards’, I think this works best for the bride and groom’s seats. This entire vintage inspired tablescape is gorgeous and one of my favorites to date. Styled by The Stylish Soiree, captured by Love Life Studios and spotted via Style Me Pretty.
