Duet Weddings

Something Borrowed, Something Blue

April Showers Bring..
April 9, 2009

These lovelies have just popped up in my front yard and I couldn't be more excited. I have been anxiously awaiting their arrival since planting the bulbs a couple of months ago. Anemones are one of my ABSOLUTE most favorite flower ever- especially the white with black centers. The contrast is so striking and beautiful and I especially love them paired with a loose, wild mixture of vines and blooms.

{I have had this image saved to my computer since 2004 and it even made it through my great-hard drive-recovery-of 2006. Adore this image. Have no idea where it is from though. }

But, Martha can never do wrong- this more composed, modern bouquet is equally stunning.

Such a fantastic flower to use for spring time weddings! And they have one of those names that is fun to say 3 times fast. :)



I heart Anemones!

So pretty! That one bouquet is by Ariella Chezar - I think it was in Elegant Bride.

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.
