A Secret Garden Wedding
This photo shoot came to be when the ladies over at Lavender and Twine were inspired by a Secret Garden inspiration board on Green Wedding Shoes and now I am inspired to redo my entire backyard! The floral design in this shoot is exquisite and just wait until you see what they did with the iron arch. This is my favorite.

I'm going to have to get me one of those.If you plan to wed in the Ojai, California area, these vendors (including the venue) are available [...]

DIY Cherry Blossom Tree Branches

I love Pottery Barn's faux branches but can't justify spending so much and the branches at the craft stores always seem too pink...or plastic...or something. Then while browsing through Good Housekeeping's Easter crafts I saw a tutorial on how to make my own Cherry Blossom branch and I just about had a heart attack when I saw how gorgeous it was. Those flowers are made out of tissue paper! Believe it!   photo by Michael PartenioHere are the instructions via Good Housekeeping:Layer a sheet of dark pink paper atop light pink paper. [...]
