Friday Favors with a Chic Bouquet!

king protea bouquet

I hope everyone had a lovely week! I’m in Carmel Valley right now with my hubby celebrating my birthday and enjoying the GORGEOUS scenery – would be such an amazing location for a wedding or honeymoon! Are any of you planning a wedding or honeymoon here? If so, you are in for a treat! Can’t wait to explore more. A few of my favorite things from this week.:

I love this cake by Hello Naomi discovered via The Knotty Bride

Did you guys see this amazing wedding on Once Wed photographed by Jose Villa? My favorite detail was her super chic bouquet of a king protea designed by Brown Paper Design – major swoon!!!

So excited to welcome Jackie Wonders Photography as one of our Featured Vendors in our Vendor guide! Love this recent wedding she shared on her blog. You can see her profile and photo gallery here – by the way, did you know we have all our favorite vendors listed in one easy to find location?
