Feature: The Knot

Oh, I am so excited and I can't hide it! I just found out that one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever curated was featured on The Knot! This wedding was destined to be dreamy because it had amazing vendors and it was held at the amazing Biltmore Estate in North Carolina! The venue was as magical as you would imagine and the couple couldn't have been more perfect. Love was truly in the air and the amount of happy people that were there to genuinely celebrate it was something straight out of a movie. This wonderful day was beautifully captured by Michelle March Photography. Please check out the links below to see the beautiful images….enjoy! xo

Feature: Central Florida Celebrations & Events Magazine

The awesome Bunny inspired photo shoot turned baby shower I was a part of with some AMAZING vendors/industry was featured once again! You know, it was featured on Southern Weddings a little while ago and now it's on the pages of Central Florida Celebrations & Events Magazine. It's a pretty neat feeling to see this shoot get so much love because it was so great to be a part of. We tricked Courtney, from Dishie Rentals, who was expecting a sweet baby girl into being a part of this shoot as a vendor. She loves bunnies and everything pink! I mean, we even had real bunnies!!!! Even during the shoot, she pulls me to the side and says, "Jelli, I want this exact same thing for Charlotte's first birthday!" I'm like, "yes!!! of course!!!" She had no idea that everything was actually for her. It was the most amazing moment when we surprised her. Although we had to take everything that was outside and recreate it inside in a matter of minutes because it just started pouring down rain, it turned out even more beautiful that I imagined. I am telling you, all of these gals are beyond amazing!!!! I was so honored to be a part of something so beautiful and meaningful. We do shoots like this very often and once we set it up and the pics are taken, we detach and everything just goes back into a box or its destroyed. This time, it had meaning and it was magical! I actually can't believe we pulled it off! Please check out the bottom of this post for the list of vendors and show some love because they deserve it all!

Most importantly, this couldn't have happened without Laura, from Ashton Events, and Lisa, from Wish Rentals. These girls got everyone together to create something special for Courtney and beautiful baby Charlotte and I know that is something she will cherish forever! A handclap to everyone involved…y'all are the absolute bestest! Check out the beautiful feature and photos by Amalie Orrange Photography, here! xoxo

Featured: Southern Bride Magazine

Happy New Year y'all! I wanted to pop in and share some fantastic news! A shoot I did with Vine & Light Photography has been published in the current Winter/Spring issue of Southern Bride Magazine! It was a sweet surprise on new year's day when I stumbled upon it at Barnes & Noble. It totally made my day and it was certainly a sweet start to the year! If this is any indication of what 2015 will be like, I can't wait to see what's in store for us! I had a wonderful time working with this great team and creating something so beautiful. When Shannon, from Vine & Light Photography, reached out to me, I knew we would make something really magical. She had a great vision and I helped her bring it to life. I designed the tablescape, all of the floral, decorated the beautiful cake and pastries, and hand-made all of those pretty paper pennant banners, which was the perfect detail. You can find the magazine in stores now and you can check out the shoot, here. I hope you love it as much as we do! xo

Destination Style for Lover.ly

I dream about destination weddings all of the time! It's fun to imagine where you could have a dreamy wedding and what you would wear and how everything would look. So, today I wanted to share a dream destination wedding and what I would wear if I was getting married (again - to my husband) in a foreign place. The sweet gals at Lover.ly asked me to create an inspirational style board for a wedding at a very romantic location and I just don't think there is anything more romantic and dreamy than Paris! Since I recently went to Paris, that whole Parisian vibe is still fresh in my mind and let's not mention that I'm still having the Paris blues! I think about being in Paris at least three times a day! The city's charm and beauty really inspired me to dream about this for a little bit. I can totally see myself wearing every item I chose below and just walking the beautiful streets of Paris right at sunset. I can imagine seeing the gorgeous pink light of the sun reflecting against the gorgeous buildings while walking across the bridges over the Seine River. I would definitely stroll the streets in this beautiful lace gown a-la Midnight in Paris and walk around the city all through the night with my love. There's nothing about this city that I don't love and there is no other place that would be more romantic and picturesque. If you're planning or thinking of getting married at a romantic destination, don't think twice and just do it! It makes for incredible memories and so many intimate moments! Would you ever consider having your wedding at a romantic destination? How would you imagine that day to be? Yeah, let's dream for a second! Go on Lover.ly and you can create your dream wedding on "the wedding planner binder in the cloud" and you can even find your dream there by clicking, here. Hey, you may be able to turn that dream into reality! xo
