Wedding Party Inspiration: Navy Blue + Peach

I spotted this lovely wedding photographed by Stephanie Williams, on her blog. In addition to the beautifully shot images, I love all of the details of the wedding party attire. This wedding is like modern, preppy + chic all in one. Everything ties in so well + creates such a clean, crisp look.

The venue is Alcazar Garden in Balboa Park/ San Diego California.

Inspiration of the Week: Dog Love

Rounding out this week’s pet posts are these images by Olivia Leigh Photographie. Seeing pet photos makes me happy because I am such an animal lover and have a soft spot for dogs, in particular. I love that these couples chose to include man’s best friend in their engagement session. What great images she captured…
