Nespresso VertuoLine – The Perfect Wedding Gift

Nespresso VertuoLine

We’ll speak for ourselves, but bet you’ll agree, coffee is THE key to getting our day started off on the right foot. And if you’re anything like us, you’re idea of the perfect morning cup of joe looks like it was crafted by your neighborhood barista (read: richly aromatic, deeply flavored coffee + espresso), but is enjoyed curled up on the couch, in the comfort of your own home. Luckily for coffee lovers everywhere, with Nespresso VertuoLine’s intelligent + innovative single-serve system, it’s never been easier to whip up delicious drinks (both large-cup coffee + authentic espresso) with a simple + convenient touch of a button.

The brewing time is just 35 – 52 seconds for espresso and 90 – 105 seconds for large-cup coffee – meaning you’ll be enjoying that cup of coffee quicker than you can scroll through those latest Instagrams. And if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a couple of soon-to-be-wedded pals, or want to bring a VertuoLine home to yourself, we’ve got good news because they’re currently $100 off to celebrate their 1-year anniversary!

Because we’re pret-ty excited about Nespresso’s promotion (regularly $299, now $199, and applies to the stand alone VertuoLine and the VertuoLine, plus Aeroccino milk frother) we’ve gotta rattle off a few more reasons why we love the VertuoLine: the bar-code reading technology allows blend-specific brewing to reach the perfect cup every time, there’s an adjustable cup holder for coffee, espresso and milk-based recipe glasses, and it comes in a variety of stylish hues – white, black, titan, chrome and red.

The $100 discount is only available now through April 4th 2015, so don’t miss out! And Nespresso has just launched a new flavor for the machine this month, called Caramelizio. That’s right, coffee + caramel collide, giving you even more reason than ever to love the VertuoLine. It’s the perfect time to snag a seriously impressive wedding gift at a great price, or finally take the plunge in adding a high-end coffee system to your newlywed (or maybe not-so-newlywed) kitchen!

Whimiscal Cat-Themed Wedding: Lauren + Brian

Ojai Cat Themed Wedding

Just when we thought things couldn’t get more creative or fun around here, Let’s Frolic Together sent over Lauren + Brian’s amaze cat-themed Ojai wedding! These two really knew how to craft a celebration that was a perfectly sweet reflection of their love + are sure to act as a pair of fab role models for couples wanting to make their day their own!

Lauren tells us, When we were planning our wedding, we really wanted to incorporate our two favorite things in the world, our cats. I think a lot of our friends heard “cat-themed wedding” and said, “Hmm. Sounds about right for you two!” We wanted to imbue our feline festivities with a vintage vibe, and we turned to postcards, children’s books, and porcelain figurines for inspiration. We even brought our two furry feline friends all the way to Ojai to join us!

When you want to go all out in the creative department (for instance, if you want to have a cat party!), it helps to have someone there to organize the wonderful chaos. L + B chose Lavender and Clove as their wedding planners + the team executed away while the two of them focused on the things that mattered  most: cats, glitter, and the mountains.

We will never forget our incredible ceremony. The second it started, it felt like time had frozen. The afternoon sun made everything glow. A close friend officiated the event, and she crafted a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony that felt intimate and personal, even as we stood in front of 100 people. We felt the love and support of everyone present. Near the end of the ceremony, we exchanged vows we each had written. This crystallized everything, how perfect the day felt and how perfect we felt for each other.

Pick a theme that speaks to you, even if it’s not typical. We took our gut instincts and ran with them, and we loved the results. Planning a wedding can be stressful; there can be a lot of cooks in the kitchen. It makes it a lot easier to plan a wedding when you pick decorations and design elements that really speak to you. Don’t be afraid to just do what you both feel is right. You won’t regret it for a second!

Berry + Gold Winter Wedding Inspiration

Winter Berry Inspiration

While we realize it’s spring, and everyone’s ready for bright colors + floral patterns, we’re also well aware that many of you are in the middle of planning a fall or winter wedding, so we promise not to cut you off from some great inspiration that we know you can use! For this editorial, sent over by Lauren Fair Photography, the inspiration stemmed from a fine-art, wintry indoor environment, highlighting a bold color palette of crimsons, deep blues, and gold. Lauren collaborated with Oleander Florals + Design to conceptualize and design the setting, using the amazing warehouse + inventory from Maggpie Vintage Rentals. We love the romantic feel (there were literally hundreds of candles in gold vintage vessels) and the tablescape coming up in a sec, which was rich with vibrant, bold colors + textures.

While there are lots of general eye candy elements to pin + save from this one, we love that if you’re tying the knot later this year (or in early 2016) you’ll likely find inspiration you can directly use + incorporate into your day. For instance, if you were thinking your winter celebration had to feature neutrals or monochromatic details, the color scheme you’ll see in this pretty shoot will change your mind in no time flat! Let’s see the rest…

Lauren shares some closing words of wisdom to couples planning a winter wedding of their own, Here in the Northeast, we’ve been buried under absolutely freezing temperatures + tons of snow, and wanted to show that you can plan a beautiful winter wedding from January-March wedding all indoors with the right textures, styling + decor pieces!
