As purveyors of weddings that continue to push the bar on creativity, we dream about weddings like this one. For a designer, clients like Alecia + Jon, with their amazing taste and up-for-anything attitudes, are the perfect couple to work with. Jesi Haack, the lady we’re bowing our heads down to today, even described Alecia as her design soul sister and both A + J as her soulmates. The details and design are so, so fun. See cowhide aisle and table runners, gold balloon table numbers, chevron curtains, graphic signage, and yes, a stunning bride and groom!

My childhood bedroom was dripping in pink and green, so obviously, I love the color combo. I can only wish, however, that my room was as sweet and beautiful as this inspiration shoot from Love Is A Big Deal. It’s filled with pastel pink and gorgeous green details that have my head spinning in a pretty haze of romantic waterlily inspiration. Cedarwood Weddings was the perfect team to compliment the design and bring it to a level that has filled a gallery full of only Inspiration Board-worthy images!

Things are just right in the world. Mad Men is back, Love Me Sailor is sharing rad photos of Steffani + Linton’s wedding, and as always, Jesi Haack delivers on the details + decor. With a palette of soft, neutral pastel colors and lots of cheerful textures everywhere, Jesi went to town creating fabric stuffed hearts used for a ceremony backdrop, a garland made of oversized colored balls, a yarn covered backdrop to hold 182 escort cards, and a super original wooden heart guest book where guests signed a “puff” ball. So many fresh ideas in this one that are sure to inspire!

Indiana Jones probably isn’t seen as a typical source for wedding inspiration, but I think this fun tablescape designed around the movie is such a rad idea – and something I know both I + my hubby would love. :) When Josh from Casa de Perrin walked into the Found Vintage Rentals warehouse, he had a vision.

I’ve been on the hunt for a little Thanksgiving inspiration, so we’ll be sharing some of our favorite finds with you this week! First up today is this rustic Thanksgiving shoot with florals and styling by Honey and Poppies, heirloom place settings and food styling by Casa de Perrin, and photography by Braedon Flynn. This shoot was originally featured over on Design Sponge, however we’ve got lots of extra images to share with you to get you inspired!

While it was once customary for the host or hostess to prepare the entire Thanksgiving feast themselves, these days, it’s far more common for everyone to chip in by bringing a dish to share or helping set the scene. Thanksgiving is only a week away, and if you need a bit of inspiration for the day, look no further than this lovely collaborative effort between Jeni Maus of Found and her very talented group of friends.
