Sealed with a Flower {Inspiration}

Photographer Anna is the talent behind on of my favorite instagrammers @annaremarchuk , not only is her feed a daily dose of romance and inspiration, her work involves flowers and envelopes! How very novel of her❤

Anna like a painter combines the colors of the flowers and envelope’s paper with utmost care which is why we think they are works of art.

The perfect Tuscan venue {Real Bride}

I attended a friend’s intimate wedding at one of the prettiest venues in Italy, Borgo Corsignano. Set between the hills of Casentini in the charming village of Poppi, the romantic retreat is exactly what a bride needs to have a perfect Tuscan wedding.

The venue welcomed the guests in renovated villas with terracotta tile floors, country side interiors and fireplaces. So charming! Here are some images i took during my stay

La Dolce Vita!

Low Ponytail Trend {Bridal Hair}

We went to the runways of high fashion to get some inspiration from the new “less is more” low ponytail trend. Gathered at the neck, you can go for the sleek, flat and flawless with a side of french twists and statement bows or wear it unpolished and ethereal with a messy braid.

Keeping it sophisticated and chic, here is a round up of my favorite looks you can wear on your wedding day❤

Rosa Clara {Bridal Collection 2017}

One thing is for sure, this collection’s Rosa Clara bride will be elegantly timeless. There will be no what-if, no  should’ve because these dresses are beautiful yesterday, today and forever.

I love the fluid contours, the grace kelly look from the front with the metallic chantilly surprises on the back. The bows that look like open tulips and petals along with the pearl accessories puts Rosa Clara in my top collections from this year’s bridal week.

Here are my picks
