The Countdown is On!

To keep you all up to date with my life - my lovely sister, Katherine (to the right of me in the picture), is getting married in in next month! Now, as I'm sure you could tell from my previous post my mother is very talented in terms of design so she's really taken the lead on this wedding which is happening at our house - very Father of the Bride. Almost everything is done actually, this little collage will give you a taste of the colors and everything - obviously I can't include Katherine's dress for fear of Peter (her fiance) seeing it but take my word, it's gorgeous.
The border is taken from their invitations which were done by Peabody Papers in Columbus, they came out beautifully. The bouquet is actually from an old issue of New York Magazine's Wedding edition and served as the inspiration for her bouquet and colors. The tie is Hermes, but this one was actually vetoed by my mom because apparently monkeys are bad luck (don't ask) - we made quite the scene in Bergdorfs figuring that out, but we found another option that is the same color. And my favorite part - the dress and shoes are what I'll be wearing in the wedding! I'm so happy (and honored) that Kat decided to just keep her wedding party to me, which worked out well because her fiance has a younger brother as well so it will be nice and small. So over the next month or so as I reference "the wedding" now you'll know what I'm talking about and be able to contribute!


  1. I got the shout out! That's the first time I've seen the color of my tie.

  2. I love those colors - so original but so elegant. I'm sure it is going to be spectacular. Can't wait to see all the pictures!

  3. Elizabeth! Fabulous! Love that wallpaper. meemee
