A Southern/ Parisian Wedding


I seriously almost dropped to the floor in a seizure yesterday when one of my e-design clients (yes, we do that–A LOT, actually) emailed me that her wedding was featured in the Southern Living Weddings available now.  We knew this couple loved Parisian style since they had their first date IN Paris (seriously, how romantic is that?) and we are using that as a jumping off point for the decor of their home.  But to see THIS really solidified the look we are going for- casual Parisian elegance with a smidge of Southern goodness.  The incredibly personal event took place at Tuckahoe Plantation in Richmond, Virginia (the groom’s family homestead-I die) and was chock full of amazing details like the fact that the bride learned to letterpress to make her own invites, her ring is a family heirloom from the groom’s family, her father married them and they drove off in a turquoise Mustang that the bride and her father spent a year restoring when she was 15. I can’t make this up, people!

Note the toile… and the insane rings.

Could not love the color of the porch ceiling more.

See- the toile on the envelope liners. Simple and perfect. Especially all those stamps!

Really loving the pink stripe ties- and the varying greys int he suits on the groomsmen. Much appreciated by them I’m sure to not have to buy/rent a suit.  And it looks good to boot!

Say WHAT?!

This is where I start flipping out…

GAH! Perfection!

Toile lined gift boxes with Parisian macarons!!!

Could they BE any cuter?


Those tin cans are covered in blue toile. Oh yes they are!

I can’t wait to show you their place once it’s done! :)
