Introducing The Mrs Box + a Giveaway!

The Mrs Box

Wouldn’t you agree that that stunning sparkler of yours deserves to be kept (when it’s not on your finger!) in something equally as beautiful? For the most part, the drab standard ring box that most jewelers offer is so not going to cut it, so we couldn’t be more excited to share the news of The Mrs. Box, who set out to change things in a beautiful + colorful way! Designed by our ultra stylish friend Summer of Grey Likes Weddings, The Mrs. Box offers limited edition vintage french velvet ring boxes. The Mrs. Box gives you an instant heirloom and a proper  – and pretty! – place to store and showcase your most treasured baubles. With the option of personalization with custom monograms and a rainbow of colors to choose from, every girl (whether you are a Miss, Ms. or Mrs.) is sure to find a favorite.

Country-Inspired Cali Wedding: Jessica + Brandon

rustic Union Hill wedding

We love that there are so many different ways to style a rustic wedding, don’t you? For Jessica + Brandon, “rustic” meant handmade, country-inspired touches and just the right amount of bohemian flair. The gals rocked boots (and super fun mismatched yellow or lace frocks), Jess looked rustic-glam with her worn leather belt paired with an amaze statement necklace, and the details infused throughout the setting were just so good. Union Hill Inn in Sonora, California provided the perfect backdrop for the day + gave the setting a quintessential Cali feel that we know + love so well. Jessica tells us a bit more about her + Brandon’s inspiration below:

My inspiration for the day was rustic, boho, and country to begin with. We really wanted to have a wedding that was romantic, personal and fun. I always like the small details, so when it came to planning the wedding, I put most of my energy into that. I went to antique fairs, vintage furniture stores, craigslist and hours of putting my poor husband to work making chalk board signs, lawn games and doing all the writing. We made almost everything ourselves for the wedding, and most of the furniture came from our home.

Thanks so much to Danielle Poff Photography for the super lovely images + congrats to J + B on a beautiful day!

My most memorable moment of the day was jumping into the pool with my husband and friends. It was the perfect way to end a perfect day!

My advice for those planning a wedding would be to have plenty of time and patience, also I would say to have a good idea of what your vision for the day is and do your best to stick with it. There are a lot of great venders on etsy that we used and even more great tutorials online to make your vision possible.

Bohemian Dinner Party Inspiration

rustic western dinner party

We all know how hard it is to find the perfect wedding, event or dinner party venue, so when The Venue Report discovered Apartment A, a brand new gem in Los Angeles’ fastest growing hotspot, the Arts District, they knew they wanted to host a giveaway for a lucky winner to be able to experience an event there. The contest was an ode to the dinner party and the theme, “Go Buck Wild”, was conceived so the winners would enjoy a fun, carefree meal – crafted by Contemporary Catering – together. We absolutely love all of the creative, bohemian details scattered throughout the tablescape and setting + thought the design would provide you with the perfect inspiration for your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, or just about any party or event! Let’s hear more about the gorgeously designed environment (captured to perfection by Braedon Flynn) from Cortnie of The Venue Report:

The dinner party contest was all about gathering at a well designed table, with close family and friends, to feast on incredible food and drink handcrafted cocktails without having to lift a finger. “Go Buck Wild” and enjoy! 

We wanted to bring in the bohemian feel of an Indian Summer breezy boho vibe and the addition of the Wild West for some masculine touches. Tool belt holsters were used them as utensil holders. Cruelty-free porcupine quills filled inkwell vases and tumbleweeds were turned into chandeliers that hovered over the table. Beautiful sticks were turned into drink stirrers accented by patina desert animals like armadillos and fireflys. Vintage ivory and gold rimmed dinnerware, along with gold flatware was provided by Borrowed Blu.

Carissa from JL Designs did stunning floral arrangements that were low, lush and filled with driftwood, branches, succulents, and ivory flowers. She placed fools gold at each setting for a glittering accent reminiscent of the Wild West.

Looks like such a fun night, right? If you don’t keep up with The Venue Report, we definitely suggest that you do – especially if you are researching wedding venues! Big thanks to Cortnie and the super talented team of creatives below for sharing this fun dinner party with us!
