Good-Bye, Winter!

We’re welcoming spring weather and weddings with open arms! But not before giving winter a grand sendoff. So long to pine trees and snowflakes, winter white and cozy fires, hot cocoa and pinecones. Enjoy this last wintery inspiration. ♥     Photo Credits: 1 Athena Pelton (via) 2 & 4 Nine Photography (via) 3 & 6 Emily Delamater (via) 5 Joel Bedford / Stationery from Wedding Paper Divas (via). 7 Bayly & Moore / Flowers by Yuga Flora (via) 8 (Via) 9 Marianne Wilson (via) 10 (Via) 11 Via Amy Atlas 12 Jennifer Eileen (via).

Lovella Bride Parisa’s Lovely Bridal Luncheon

What sophistication! Parisa, Pretty Please Design owner, “prettified,” as she put it, so many of the details that played a part in her low-key bridal luncheon in Beverly Hills. We’re talking detail-upon-prettified-detail of white, gold and beige with lovely embellishments like burlap, pearls, white lace and raffia that gave this soiree sweet, sweet life. All the details, like personalized pencils, pearl-wrapped champagne flutes, and a cage featuring calligraphy to fill with bridal advice, made us swoon. We think they’ll do the same to you. Parisa, too, is a Lovella bride. Look for her equally sophisticated wedding feature on our blog soon! In the meantime, enjoy all the lovely inspiration from Parisa’s pre-wedding lunch with the girls.     Credits: Photography: Duke Photography / Venue: Il Cielo in Beverly Hills / Calligraphy: Calligraphy Katrina / Event Design: Pretty Please Design (owned by the bride-to-be) / Cakes: Rafi’s Pastry.

Winter White & Ivory Cakes

No other confection is quite as chic or timeless as a white or ivory wedding cake. White and ivory have the power to transcend all seasons; the colors are fashionable in spring and summer or fall and winter. And bonus points goes to a cake with icing in exquisite textures, designs or shapes, which seem to make it all the more enticing to sink your teeth into. Go classic with flowers and pearls or modern with large circles or waves of buttercream or fondant. Below you’ll see a towering white rosette cake (almost too pretty to eat), classically textured four and five-tiered cakes, an art deco-inspired creation and more.     Credits: 1 Via Martha Stewart Weddings 2 Cake by Cut the Cake via *** 3 Via The Knot 4 Cake by Cake Crumbs w/ image by Heidi Ryder via *** 5 Cake by cakegirls via *** 6 Sublime Bakery […]
