Lemon and Lavender has been one of my fave places to visit for quite some time now. Not only is Miss Ashley the biggest sweetheart with one of the loveliest blogs out there but shes an incredibly talented stationary and invitation designer with an eye like no other for pretty paper (Did I mention she’s a total babe, too? :) She’s been a sponsor of my little blog for a couple weeks now and I haven’t had the time to formally introduce her but she sent me over some images from a recent wedding she served as a vendor for and I was blown away. Ash you’re a superstar and I adore you. Check out the Lemon and Lavender blog for daily inspirations and a peak into Ash’s life and you can look around in her shop here. In the meantime check out the photos from the wedding I mentioned above. This is one wedding I would have loved to be a guest at; Kelly Brown Weddings did an incredible job with the photography, Ash went above and beyond with tons of personalized touches for the bride and groom and that bride? Gorgeous. Well done ladies, well done.
On to the details!
Homemade jars of pickles as favours! I can’t even handle how adorable this idea is and those little deli style tags are brilliant. Throw in custom stir sticks, drink flags, monogrammed cigar labels and matchboxes and this is one stylish affair. As much as I love my dreamy pink-hued weddings and vintage themed parties I have to say that a glamorous and warm palette of browns, greens and purples is quite beautiful. What do you think?

Be sure to check out Lemon and Lavender for more inspiration and photos from the above wedding. From what I’ve seen, the bride Maria, had a pretty styling bridal party with some adorable out-of-the-ordinary footware. Hopefully everyone is back on track after the huge snow storm too; here in Chicago we went almost 24 hours with no hot water, heat, electricity, cell phone service and are you ready for it? Internet. Yup, I am officially spoiled by the things in my life that I way too often take for granted. Enjoy the rest of your day blogettes and catch you tomorrow for the first FAQ Friday! xo
