Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Loving lavender!
April 1, 2008

Yikes- it has been FOREVER since my last post. It has been such a busy past couple of weeks here! Dave and I got away for the first time in a very long time for a mini vacation to the Santa Ynez Valley this past weekend. (Yes, I choose to vacation where I also so often work- hehe..) and it was an absolutely gorgeous weekend.
This time of year in wine country is one of my favorites as the colors are just beautiful. The trees are totally full and the rolling hills of grass are a vibrant green and dotted with the most insane lavender wildflowers. Since we were not good photographers this weekend (the camera stayed in the car almost the whole time.. which depending on how you look at it, is either completely inexcusable when you are on vacation or totally forgivable because you are on vacation..) I wanted to create an inspiration board devoted solely to lavender which I am totally loving and inspired by right now. I am also super excited for Melissa and Ben's upcoming wedding at the SB Four Seasons which will have lavender incorporated throughout.

{Lavender Gin Martini from Gramercy Tavern via Martha Stewart, lavender cones from Brides, Elizabeth Messina's gorgeous bouquet, lavender bundle escort cards, lavender Whisky sour from Martha- see recipe here, fragrant herb and lavender bunches as favors from Martha, lavender in footed glasses- love this idea- from Martha, lavender infused water from Martha.}

You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.

I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
