Summer: Wedding Fever!

It would be fair to say Jean and I are officially having wedding fever. One of our very best friends is getting married in three weeks and we're all feverishly preparing for one of the happiest days of our friend's life. I'm in charge of wedding planning, and Jean is in charge of the cake and creative direction. We are also collectively managing the decors. Jean and I cannot stop swooning over beautiful wedding inspirations from books, magazines, and yes, blogs.

Our friend's theme is white and yellow, it's a small and intimate wedding, with lots of loving touches from friends and family.

Jean and I have been inspired by the use of fresh herbs like lavender and rosemary for the table centerpieces, keeps it organic, not too pretentious and also a great take away for guests.

How pretty are these light pink chiffon flowers? Jean and I are pretty sure we can incorporate these in there some how, they're just so delicate and feminine, after all, isn't a wedding about celebrating beauty and love?

Love the idea of this origami table scape from our friends at Escapade.

We also adored the idea of a citrus in glass centerpiece, the imagery makes me think of summer, happiness, and the freshness of the couple's new chapter together.

How adorable is this? A yellow ribbon and a white paper bag can brighten up a whole wedding.

Jean is a great collector of beautiful containers, we were thinking of using them as impromptu vases with a wonderful bit of personality and character.

Our bride is a chef, the checkered napkins reminds us to mentally prepare ourselves for the feast to come, and the casual potted plants invite ease and comfort, to fill ourselves up with scrumptiousness and the love going into our bellies, and focus on why we're really here: to celebrate love.

We are so happy to be a part of the wedding planning, and will be thrilled to post the wedding photos as soon as we get them next month! Congratulations Steve & Dao! We love you and cannot wait to see you share the rest of your lives together.

Well shoot!!! Dao made it sound like you two were coming up with some ridiculous ideas for her wedding. Now I know the truth!!!! These are wonderful ideas. When I marry my prince, you two can go buck wild and plan the entire thing ;-)
