Maui Watercolor Wedding, Montage Kapalua, Cliff House, Stacie Shea Events

I could not be more thrilled and honored to be featured this morning on one of my all time favorite wedding blogs – Green Wedding Shoes. During my trip to Hawaii for Stacy and Mike’s Maui wedding, I collaborated with Stacie Shea Events to design a New York City meets Maui watercolor inspiration shoot at the Cliff House – an intimate new venue on the west coast of the island. Thanks to all the amazing vendors who contributed to this shoot!

Last Monday marked the conclusion of fall Bridal Fashion Week in New York City but not before some gorgeous gowns hit the runway showcasing the season’s latest trends. Even though the runway can be filled with dramatic and over the top looks (maybe a little too much for a real wedding day), here are my favorites from fashion week that have just enough drama and elegance for a beautiful real wedding day!

So many designers had dramatic open backs this season. Here’s one of my favorites from Ines Di Santo. (Open back pictures above)

Intricate beading and embroidery, unique neck lines and deep sweetheart silhouettes – BFW had it all! I love this heavy beading on the bodice with sparkle cascading into the skirt from Naeem Kahn. Blush tones have been seen on the runways for a few seasons now with growing popularity. This season, a new palette of neutrals debuted, especially shades of champagne. Monique L’Huiller’s colorful runway show was right on trend, but this champagne ballgown stunned with intricate lace embellishments. I also loved this cascading ruffle horsehair skirt under the trumpet length beaded bodice from Liancarlo in creamy blush.
 I don’t think lace will ever not be on trend – but soft romantic lace was everywhere. I couldn’t get enough!

Pumpkin Patch, New England Fall, Wilkens Farm

Fall in New York is definitely one of my favorite parts about living in the northeast… the leaves are turning colors, the air is crisp… it’s kind of a magical time of year out here. In order to fully soak in all that fall has to offer… Dave and I took Cam up to the Wilkens Farm in Yorktown Heights this week to pick out our Halloween pumpkins. Going on a weekday definitely avoided the massive crowds that flood the farm on Saturday and Sunday so Cam was free to run through the rows of pumpkins. He was pretty cute… I can’t help sharing a few of my favorites from the pumpkin patch… aaah to be 2 years old again… ha ha!
