COLOURFUL GEOMTRIC ELOPEMENT AFTER PARTY RECEPTION IN A MUSIC HALL (19)

Erica and James eloped earlier in the year, in a small ceremony in Downtown Durham, NC. A totally unique experience,the couple spent the day hanging out a Food Truck Rodeo and local brewery, but the couple still wanted to throw a wedding for their friends and family to celebrate. Their priority was to have a wedding that was fun, low-stress, and that represented their life as a couple.

THIS INTIMATE WEDDING AT RED ROCK CANYON WILL INSPIRE YOU TO ELOPE!

INTIMATE-DESERT-WEDDING-AT-RED-ROCK-CANYON-LAS-VEGAS (16)

I am just going to go right ahead and say it, I am so tempted to elope right now! As many brides to be reading this might have realised by now, there’s a lot of pressure to ‘plan’ a wedding once you announce your engagement. Everyone expects to have received a save the date in a matter of weeks and questions start being asked if there isn’t an invite after a few months.

Last year was crazy busy for us so we decided to put our wedding plans on hold and to this day we are still comfortable with that decision. However fast forward a year and I feel like I am always being asked, if we have a date yet? To the point where I think it would be easier to go ahead and elope just to stop people asking! However as those of you in the same boat will know, sometimes it isn’t just as easy as that so, for now I will have to secretly harbor my desires and continue muttering my apologies for not having made any plans yet, whilst daydreaming over intimate destination weddings like the one we are sharing with you today.

Michelle and Grant choose Red Rock Canyon as their wedding destination. Coming all the way from Canada, they wanted a desert wedding full of warmth, beautiful landscapes, and fun. Red Rock Canyon weddings are perfect for couples looking to achieve beauty, privacy and adventure.

FLORENCE IN A DAY

Florence Travel Guide Italy getting there parking walking where to eat what to do see tips-1

One of my favourite things about Italy is that no matter what part of it I’ve been to it’s always been beautiful and the food has always been incredible! A few weeks ago me and James took a break in Italy, we stayed in Pisa, rented a car and explored Cinque Terre and Florence while we were there. In case you missed it, you can see our guide to Cinque Terre here with lots of helpful tips! Today though, we’re going to be talking about Florence!

As I mentioned before we rented a car and it took us just over an hour to get to Florence from Pisa. Parking there can be a little tricky due to the ZTL. Basically, you can’t drive into the City walls unless you are a resident or have a permit. If you cross into the ZTL then it’s a costly error as you can incur a fine of up to €100 each time you enter it. (yikes)

THIS FUN SCIENCE THEMED WEDDING TAKES OUR LOVE OF COLOUR TO AN ENTIRELY NEW LEVEL

COLOURFUL SCIENCE THEMED WEDDING IN URBAN PORTLAND (17)

Kerri and Noah met through friends during the regular Tuesday evening gathering at a local ‘cantina’. Kerri had recently moved to town after finishing her graduate studies and Noah was a PhD student. They met up as a group nearly every week, discussing interesting things they’d read, troubleshooting scientific problems, and coming up with ideas for future science projects. A love of science is one of the first things they realized they shared.

And that was just the beginning…

BB CRAFTY CLUB UNBOXING – NOVEMBER

BB Crafty Club November Unboxing Wedding Subscription box-1

It’s that time of month where we reveal all of the awesome suppliers in the last BB Crafty Club and boy was this one a cracker! Since November can be a bit dark and dreary we decided to cram this box with lots of colourful, fun items to brighten it up! First in the box was an incredible DIY hanging quote from Curious Me, I loved it’s happy message and how easy peasy it was to make with Pinar’s beautifully designed instructions! I made mine in under an hour and it certainly does brighten up any space where it’s placed!

Next was the super fun confetti from Pretty Your Party Co! Let’s be honest, life without confetti would be pretty boring and who could resist the pops of colour in these bags?! We also decided to continue on the fun with a selection of temp tattoos from Doris Loves!! We LOVE the idea of using these at hen parties or even giving them as wedding favours, how awesome would they look your guests?!
