Nashville Wedding: Autumn + Joe

Posted April 8, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

Autumn and Joe’s Nashville wedding was a hit! Their Nashville area wedding has lots of lovely details that are sure to get you in the planning mood. Autumn and Joe’s event planner was Elaine from Events by Elaine. Elaine tells us, “Married on a gorgeous fall day, Autumn and Joe’s day was filled with emotion and love. Inspired by vintage elements, a pink, yellow and gray color scheme was included in the flowers and the mismatched bridesmaid dresses. The bride made the jars for the centerpieces using lace and fabric. The couple included their mothers by hanging their dresses and wedding photos for the guests to see…”

We’re so excited to share a brand new DIY with you today! Like many of you, I (Emma here!) love flowers, but I’m no floral designer. However, when we met the folks at Bloominous and they told us about their kits, we were eager to give it a go. This weekend, surrounded by protea, roses, safari sunsets, liatris, spray roses, succulents, and more, we rolled up or sleeves and tackled our very own DIY boho wedding bouquet (and centerpiece) to prove just how easy it really is.

Whimsical Flower Girl Hair Pins (+ Win!)

Posted December 20, 2013 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 2 Comments

Hi, loves! Earlier this week, we talked about felt wedding ideas you’ll actually love, a post which received positive, excited responses. (We’re glad you liked it!) And, one of the artisans we featured – Ordinary Mommy – is back in the spotlight today! We’re sharing some of her whimsical hair pins for your flower girl. One of the reasons why we love this shop (besides the fact that her work is awesome) is because of Faith’s sweet story of how her products are made. In her shop, Faith talks about how each piece is made with love and surrounded by family, adding: “I don’t have my own studio space, so I’m rather certain that each piece a person takes home with them tells stories of small girls painting and dancing, a wee gentleman conspiring to build his latest Lego creation, and the moments of chaos surrounding its making.“. Isn’t that sweet? Read on to see a few of our favorite flower girl hair pins and enter for a chance to win a set! Enjoy!

Whimsical Flower Girl Hair Pins

What would your flower girl love to wear in her hair? For starters, something sparkly. I mean, I’m twentysomething and sparkly still wins over simple, every time. Also, since there are only five days until Christmas, I found this set to be especially lovely this time of year.

How to Plan a Rustic Fairytale Wedding

Posted June 25, 2013 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 9 Comments

Hello, loves! Today we’re sharing some delightfully rustic inspiration in the form of a rustic fairytale wedding theme. But first… I recently went camping and my almost seven-year-old niece taught me a thing or two about fairies. At the campfire, she looked into the woods and pointed at brief sparks of light. These sparks – lightning bugs, naturally – are not lightning bugs. They’re fairies. Acorns? Fairy hats. Holes in the tree? Fairy houses. Moss? Moss is just moss. (I thought – pixie dust! – but she informed me, “No, Aunt Emma, that’s just moss.” Bless her heart.) I wanted to share that story to remind you that a wedding theme can be ANYTHING you dream it to be. A fairytale wedding doesn’t have to be all Cinderella carriages, castles, and crowns. If you’re an eco-bride, would prefer a position as princess of the woods vs. the ballroom, and you need some serious inspiration for a unique wedding theme, you’ve come to the right place. Today we’re sharing an exclusive Enchanted rustic fairytale wedding shoot by a stellar team of wedding pros with photography by Jessy Carté. So, without further adieu… let’s get started!
