California Garden Wedding by Joleen Willis Photography

We’ve got a perfectly pretty, perfectly happy wedding to ease us into Tuesday here at LWB. Captured wonderfully by Joleen Willis Photography, this California garden wedding is filled with pastel pink and white blooms, a bevy of beautiful bridesmaids in a eye-catching ombre display of reds and pinks, and four of the sweetest flowergirls on the planet. With so many lovely details, it’s hard to pick a favourite. But I have no doubt all you wedding lovers will enjoy taking your time to choose!

Ombre is definitely one of my favorite trends this year. It’s an easy way to incorporate subtle glimpses of color into your big day without everything being too match-matchy, I’m definitely not a fan of that! These DIY ombre place cards are a super simple ombre project for you to recreate on your own–

  • Your choice of paint color
  • 3 bowls
  • 3 foam brushes
  • Water

Squirt a touch of paint into three bowls. Add water to one bowl so that the color is less saturated, then double that amount of water for the third bowl. Now you’ll have three shades of your color choice.

Use a foam brush to brush on the lightest shade first. Then use separate brushes for the second and third shades, moving further down each time.

Set the cards aside to dry. Once dry, you can add an extra touch with a hole punch, calligraphy, twine, or a cute place card stand.

I created these citrus holders just by cutting a line across the top of a lime!

{Cake Inspiration} Ruffled Wedding Cake in Pink & Gray

I would have to say this pretty two tiered concoction with layers and layers of delicate gray, white and pink ombre ruffles literally ‘takes the cake’ as far as I’m concerned. What girl wouldn’t be smitten with this amazing ruffled wedding cake? It’s so pretty.. and whimsical… and ethereal, you want to wrap yourself in it from head to toe!  This will have to be filed under one of my favorites for 3 big swoon-worthy reasons: 1. It has a pretty pastel palette in vintage tones of pink and gray 2. It’s topped with a gorgeous crown of plump peonies, and 3. I love the ombre design – it gives the cake a modern meets vintage vibe all rolled in to one! Yes, I’m sold. Bring down the hammer! That will be ‘one fabulous wedding cake to go‘ thanks!

{Cake Inspiration} Pastel Green Ruffle Cake

I’m loving this pastel green ruffle cake I spotted today. Not only is it soft and delicate with layer upon layer of ombre green fondant, but it also has an element of surprise. Large pretty petals with black cherry centres create the illusion of poppies for decoration. I think the overall effect is amazing – modern, ethereal and glamorous!
