Cover of the current issue of Elle Decor

Interior design is one of my strongest influences when designing an event. I am forever inspired by the pages of Elle Decor. Don't get me wrong, bridal magazines and blogs are great resources to see ideas pulled together right before your eyes...but as a designer, I truly get excited when I flip trough the pages of my Elle Decor each month when it's delivered to my doorstep.

Wedding magazines are vastly (sad face) disappearing and my heart would just about stop beating if interior design magazines followed suit. To me, blogs can never compare to the feeling of a magazine in your hands...flipping through the pages, tearing out selects, drooling over the luxury and pining over the flea market finds.

Ladies (and gents) you will find inspiration on every page. It can be as simple as falling in love with the colors on the wall, the texture and lines of a painting, or a fantastic print on a settee...endless possibilities! For example, you can even design an entire event around a single piece of china. If it's hard for you to visualize something like that, Elle Decor has made it easier for you in their current issue, just check out page 164. Also, don't miss page 182 & 183 for some sensational tablescapes.

So when thinking about the design of your wedding or next event, take my advice, try picking up an interior design magazine and see what inspires you. Happy planning!

I have an absolutely lovely couple getting married this weekend at the Brooklyn Historical Society in the Othmer Library...because of that, I have literary and library styled weddings on my mind. I adore these invitations by Letterbox Ink. I'm really starting to think I have an Etsy addiction- HELP!

Last Friday was the beautiful wedding of the two VERY special people pictured above (nothing is more fun than helping out family and friends, that's for sure). I was excited for their wedding for too many reasons to I'll just name a couple: 1. Venue, same place my sister got married at over ten years ago and was looking forward to seeing the space in a new way. 2. Britney and Joe from Turn Loose the Art photographing the day. I'm not quite sure when or where I first came across their work, but ever since the first time I saw one of their images I've been addicted. I was so excited to get them on board for this wedding AND a wedding on 10.10.10! Britney and Joe are so talented and I'm endlessly inspired by their images. Click here to see their post on the pictures above, that way you can see the images in their full glory. The fourth picture down is one of my favorites and it turns out one of their wedding guests thought so too and had it framed as a wedding gift...good job! You can also click here to see a sneak peak of the wedding day.

This post would be incomplete if I didn't tell everyone looking for a home in NJ (She's located in Summit, NJ) to check out Christina's agency!

I am beyond amped for this long Holiday weekend. You see, I've been working on a wedding with my favorite florist in the entire world. I can't wait to see all the pieces of the puzzle come together. We have really designed a beautiful fete. I think I have outdid myself. HAHA.

I'm equally excited to share this news with you...

For the first time ever, Stephanie Reinish Photography is offering a 10% discount on ALL COLLECTIONS (not valid on a la carte coverage) for all you go getting 2011 brides (and grooms). That's correct, 10% off ALL collections (oh yea, and it's still 2010 pricing), that's a savings of up to $780. I love Stephanie and all of her images, especially this recent wedding. If you haven't booked a photographer yet you must check her out!
