Real Bride: Ashley

When these beautiful images made their way to my email in box last week I couldn’t wait to share them! Ashley has such a great personality and her gown, from JJ Kelly Bridal in Oklahoma City, showed every bit of it! It was fun with different textures and fit like a glove. One of Ashley’s favorite parts was how the dress was comfortable, but she could move in it and boy did she move at her reception! Until I have wedding photos to show you, here are a few teasers of the bride! Aaron Snow of Aaron Snow Photography captured these awesome images, thank you Aaron! Thank you Destry Davis at Glamor Arts for doing Ashley’s makeup! She looked flawless. I think my favorite is the photo of her veil… or the one in the window… or outside the historic Mayo Hotel… let’s face it I can’t pick a favorite! Thank you again Ashley for allowing Zinke Design to be part of your special day! We can’t wait to share more!

The Royal Wedding

It’s official, we are obsessed with the Royal Wedding! Yes, we woke up at 4:00am CST to attend a watch party at 5:00am CST and loved every minute of it. Here is our recap of the perfect day!

Katherine walked into Westminster Abbey this morning a vision in white, Alexander McQueen to be exact, and did she ever get it right. He dress was a gorgeous silhouette with the perfect ratio of tradition and modern tied together. With her veil blowing in the wind and tiara, a gift from the Queen, on her head her look was complete. We fully agree that Kate’s decision to do her own makeup was the correct one, and her bouquet was the perfect compliment to her frame. Congratulations to the new Duchess of Cambridge, you sure knew how to pull together the perfect bridal look!

The wedding party also looked dashing! Pippa, Kate’s sister and maid of honor, was also dressed in McQueen. Her fitted dress was flawless and complimented Kate’s to a “T.” Let’s not forget the best man, Prince Harry, in his regal uniform. Is it just me or does the fact he rode with the children in the carriage make him that much more attractive? Speaking of children, how adorable are these little ones! We’re definitely a fan!

Once in the church it was time for  the ceremony. The trees in the Abbey were the perfect touch, and look at the red carpet. It’s rumored that Harry spoke to William before he saw Kate saying, “wait until you see her.” It’s moments like that we swoon over. In the pictures of Wills, as the British call him, and Kate it’s clear their love for each other. This photo of her wrinkle nose, big smile is a favorite and look at them exiting the church; pure joy.

With all of the stunning photos of the bride and groom, who could look over the fashion. We adore the Queen in her canary yellow and how beautiful is Kate’s mother in pale blue. Fasteners are the new accessory and there were plenty in all colors, shapes and sizes. Of course we had to include a photo of the Beckham’s – they’re the perfect fashion icon. David was looking dapper and look at Posh with her baby bump.

With the ceremony and infamous kiss all a thing of the past here are a few of our favorite things from today. First, we adore how comfortable and in love the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are. We are excited to watch their lives unfold as part of history. How cute was it when William couldn’t get Kate’s ring on her finger. Neither of them showed a since of panic, but the ring was soon on and it was evident they were meant for each other. The kiss from the balcony at Buckingham Palace was all it lived up to be and their getaway car was great! They are certainly not afraid to be themselves and have some fun. Last, look at this cake! Kate designed it herself and it certainly is a work of art.

Congratulations William and Kate, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! We may not have been there, we definitely do not know you, but were excited to be a part of history with the fairy tale of a lifetime. Thank  you for sharing your day with the entire world. 🙂

Glam Architecture

Today’s inspiration is all about glam architecture. I absolutely love this veil and how it lays on the floor, could you imagine that down a cathedral aisle. The cake and hallway are also equally as gorgeous and fit perfectly in today’s inspiration. With the new trend of accessorizing your wedding gown all you need to add are these stunning bangles or this necklace. The shades of gold and green work perfectly together.  With the holidays coming we would love to hear your thoughts on this color palate and today’s inspiration.
