One Day…

yes, when i was a little girl, i thought i was a disney princess...i would dance around the living room watching sleeping beauty, "pink,, blue..." and as my mom and dad will tell you, i refused to wear anything but dresses and my "party shoes." i was that little girl. :) so you would think that i now would be the girl who had an elaborate fairytale wedding in mind too...but much like c posted a few weeks ago, the only thing i have ever really imagined for that big day is the amazing man and the fabulous dress (i will put them in that order for priorities sake ;) surrounded by friends and family. and the rest of the details, well, do not and will not really matter to me all that much.

but and that is a big BUT, i recently came across pictures of erin fetherston's wedding to gabe saporta that was featured in martha stewart this last fall and let's just say, it might have been a game changer…

i have always loved erin as a designer. her dresses are classic, timeless, yet carry a romantic, girly, playful sophistication and her wedding encompassed all of this. they were married last may at the st. nicholas abbey, a 350 year-old rum distillery in barbados (have never seen a more incredible venue!). here are a few of the highlights from their "fairytale" wedding but check out more details and pictures at martha stewart weddings or at erin by erin fetherston. one day… ;)


p.s. i love that they walked down the aisle post-ceremony to the beatles, "all you need is love." :)

beautiful couple, picture perfect 

dress of her own design, bouquet of peonies, sahara and 
majolica spray roses, parrot tulips and jasmine 

i love her wreath/veil, 
the perfect touch of romance and elegance

old storybook inspired invitations

hair wreaths of vintage silk cherry blossoms 
for the flower girls

flower girls were dressed in oliver and fern, 
carried a banner, "on this day in may…"

romantic and whimsical flowers, candles and tent decor

two books for guests to write in, one titled, 
"tales of the past" and the other, "wishes for the future"

dark and stormies and mojitos 
were served at the cocktail hour

(just the right amount of cheesy) :)
