Buongiorno! I was so excited when this wedding came across my desk all the way from Italy! Held on the beautiful island of Capri, this celebration combined traditional Italian elements with local Caprese influences. A single mandolinist played Neapolitan love songs in the church and the bride and wedding party carried only flowers native to Capri (wild rosemary, some bougainvillea & olive trees & peonia). Guests were treated to a typical Caprese dinner using local ingredients (Italian Caviar bruschetta & Limoncello wedding cake among other things) in a magnificent multi-leveled venue overlooking the blue grotto. Bellissimo.
A huge thank you to Umberto D’Aniello for sharing his beautiful photography with us today! Thank you Umberto!

Moderne Press emailed these over last night and they were just too beautiful not to share here! Jannie Baltzer is the designer behind this gorgeous luxury brand, dedicated to creating one-of-a-kind pieces for modern occasions. Inspired by old Hollywood glamour, Jannie uses only the best materials such as French lace, silk, Swarovski crystals, ostrich feathers, glass beads, mother of pearls and vintage finds.

I recently discovered Studio Fleurette, a fabulous floral design company serving the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Lead designer, Danielle, the daughter of a horticulturist and nurseryman, crafts incredibly beautiful compositions that could easily be described as works of art. Her ability to combine color, texture and form to create unique and personalized arrangements makes her highly sought after throughout the wedding industry.

Oh and did I mention that Studio Fleurette only takes on a limited number of weddings each year? You heard right Twin City brides – I suggest you stop what you’re doing and take a peek at their site right now…
Hello sweet readers! So today is a pretty cool day for me. I’m guest posting on Perfect Bound which happens to be one of my favorite blogs! Exciting right? It’s a round up of my favorite fashion moments on AC thus far. I really hope you like it! The dresses above are definitely a fave (you can view the rest of the images from that wedding here). Oh, and I’d love to know if you have a favorite moment on Aisle Candy too. Thoughts?
A special thank you goes out to Anne-Marie (Perfect Bound’s editor) for giving me this wonderful opportunity. And a big congrats to her too – she recently added sweet baby boy to her family!
