“Ashley is one of the greatest joys in my life. I’ve known her since we were both super, super young. Whenever I see this girl (which is like once every two months-ish) I am immediately safe in my own skin, and free to be myself around her. A year ago yesterday, she met a strapping young man named Scott at a Krispy Kreme race – run 5 miles, eat a dozen donuts, and then run 5 more – or something like that. He was a kind, English man who stole her heart, and transformed her current life. I loved being kept in the loop of their first dates (with the “What should I wear?” texts, and pictures of different outfits). “Glow in the dark” golfing at night, in the pouring rain was their first date. He planned out special trips to the zoo, and the finale was taking her on a crazy, amazing trip around NYC a week before Christmas. He gave her 6 or 7 clues which took them to the top of the Empire State building, ice skating in Central Park, an amazing restaurant overlooking all of NYC, worlds best cup of coffee (From the movie “Elf”) and then he proposed to her with a bright green emerald ring in front of the Rockefeller Christmas tree. Scott is an absolute joy to be around. Photographing them is like eating my favorite candy. I’m not kidding. It’s easy, it’s gorgeous, it’s perfect, and I could seriously photograph them for hours and hours and it wouldn’t feel like work.

They were married last June and it was unlike any wedding I’ve ever been to. 

…So about this shoot, I took them to a friends piece of property, which is like a photographer play ground. Old beautiful house, open fields, bird houses, porch swings, large boulders, wheat fields, woods, ivy ~ Lake Norman. I mean…. sigh. I was in heaven. The sky was cloudy, then sunny, then golden, then blue, then dark. It was freezing and fabulous.”- Tirzah Photography

This week has already been so absolutely wonderful and now it’s even better!!! Today is the first of a brand new article called ‘Carly Rae Mood Board’… where one of our favorite wedding planners; Carly of Carly Rae Weddings is going to share a fresh and hip mood board with us! Of course we had to start the year off right with the turquoise and all… but seriously if I was getting married again, this would be the absolute perfect inspiration! 

SomethingTurquoise_CarlyRaeWeddings_Turquoise_Peach_inspiration_boardPin

The thought behind a beautiful mood board like this is that it should be the starting point of inspiration for your wedding day. Something to share with your vendors, family and friends or whoever is helping you plan your wedding. We share these boards with you to help you along in your process and vision… but by all means please compile your own! Let us know if you end up planning your event based on one of our boards ~ we’d love to hear about it!

We are beyond excited to share today’s post with you… because it’s The Not Wedding from Cape Cod! We had the pleasure of attending this amazing event back in November of 2013 and we hope that all the beachy brides out there are inspired!!! We sure are…

If you are unfamiliar with The Not Wedding; it’s essentially a bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding. “Wedding Guests” are brides-to-be who enjoy an emotional ceremony, a tasty dinner and a dance-party reception while truly experiencing the wedding vendors in action!

Curious about the design of the day? At the beginning of every NotWedding event process, their creative director and guru on all things graphically gorgeous Ashley McHugh creates an inspiration board and distributes it to all the participating vendors; this board is all the vendors have to go off of for the event! All the Cape Cod vendors had the pleasure of working with the pastel-laden Parisian Whites board below. These soft hues where a perfect complement to the sand, sky and sea of the northeastern coastline, making for a sweet, almost wintery feel from the cakes to the centerpieces. **Of course it was our fav because of the turquoise!!!
