I Left My Heart In San Francisco

I left my hear in San Francisco. Ok, not really.  But my friend Alison, who happens to live in San Fran, is getting married next May! It seemed like an appropriate title.  I'm excited to start doing Paired postings with her color way, but to kick start it, I thought I'd do a mood board.  She sent me the images of the white lace, red and pink dresses below to communicate her color ways.  Add in some warm grays, and wha-LA.

Is it too obvious to state, the pop color was inspired by that little bridge they have over there? Just for fun I thought I'd try my hand at some save the dates incorporating their colors and inspiration.

To. Be. Continued. Yay.

If We Are Talking About Fall...

I know, I know, I know.  It's only August.  BUT, the J.Crew Fall post got me thinking about crisp weather and outdoor activities.  Mainly I started thinking about apple picking.  Random.  How much fun would it be to get married at an apple orchard in the fall though? Tons, I tell you. Let the pairings begin...

The only place (I can recall) that I've been apple picking around D.C. is Homestead Farms.  They have a mean pumpkin patch as well.  Bring on the hot apple cider.

Dining Inspiration

This wedding has been floating around the blogs.  How much fun would it be to have a ridiculously long table beneath twinkle lights winding along the orchard?  A lot.

That trio of flowers is meant to be a broach, but it'd be fun to stick in your Maids' hair.  It a gentle way that is. I can not deny my love for Emmerson's life.  Her little clutches would make for a fun bridesmaids gift.

Dressing Your Maids
via TopShop
Cliche to wear red in an apple orchard?  Psh. I might have to buy that striped dress.  Can't you see it with a blue belt and sandals for the 4th of July? I'm just sayin. But lets be real, I'd wear that dress every day of the week if I could, not just at a wedding or on the 4th.

Anyone else think the bride in that picture could be a little happier? Yikes.

I think pie pops are going to be the next big thing.  Anyone? Anyone? 

And they all lived apple picking and finger lickingly happily ever after.

P.S.  All the exact links can be found on my Pinterest Board "Apple Orchard."

Fun way to spice up the maids' outfit, "matching shoes" technically, but love the idea of the multi-colored shoe party.
