Wedding #25: Amore Venezia

One of my friends from colleges contacted me 
about helping her out a little with her wedding planning.
This is really exciting because wedding planning is what I dream of doing,
even more exciting because her wedding is going to be in ITALY!
So I told her I would do some research on some venues & what not...
But before that, I just had to do an inspiration board!
Because Venice is by far one of my all-time favorite places in the world.
I can still remember the first time I went there & just being in complete awe.
Just not even being able to take it all in...
The gondolas, the streets, the cobblestone, the buildings, the awnings, the everything...
It's love for Venice.
Or shall I say in Italian, "Amore Venezia."

Wedding Inspiration #25: Amore Venezia

So now, some information I have dug up on a wedding in Venice: 

Ceremony Venues:
I picked 3 of what I thought were the most beautiful chapels in Venice...
Although I'm sure there are so many more since there are a lot of chapels there.
Also, there are other locations as well to have a wedding.
But I just did some brief background focusing only on chapels.

This church was built between 1481 and 1489. The inside is absolutely beautiful & breathtaking...
Would be a lovely place for a majestic & grand ceremony. 

This church was built in the 12th century & is one of the oldest churches in Venice.
The outside is misleading as to the beauty within this church.
I can still remember going into this church mostly because I had to cover my arms...
& since I had nothing I had to borrow my dad's sweater...

Reception Venues
For the reception I was thinking a beautiful grand ballroom.
This one I found is absolutely stunning...

1. Luna Hotel Baglioni

Friday Fancies #16: Off-white Christmas

For the white Christmas Friday Fancies I decided to go with a comfy outfit
Because on Christmas I normally just wear sweats!
This turned into an off-white/white Christmas once I found those Uggs!
Too bad this year there probably won't be snow & it's not even that cold...
Well, in Virginia (where we are now--bf's parents houses) it's cold
But when we left Savannah it was like 70 degrees! 
I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas!

Friday Fancies #16: Off-White Christmas

My boyfriend got me the open heart diamond necklace from Kay's this Christmas!
I feel pretty lucky!
It was really fun meeting all of his family & seeing where he is from!

Pinteresting Holiday

Everything has been so hectic right now...
holiday parties, holiday shopping, etc. etc.
Working double shifts to make some extra money before I take a week off...
Today I work from 11am to midnight! Ouch!
No time to blog! 
Anyway, since I don't have time to put together an inspiration board,
& since I never got a chance to decorate my apartment for Christmas...
I wanted to compile some of my favorite holiday things on Pinterest right now! 

Pinteresting Holiday Inspiration

I am extremely excited for this holiday because:
1. I get to spend it with my special someone (again)
2. I get to meet the special someone's family! 
3. ROAD TRIP to VIRGINIA (I have never been!)

Just got to get through Wednesday & then I'm off work for a bit!
I am really really really excited!
Plus since I've been so busy lately I haven't gotten to spend much time with
my special someone so this will be a whole lot of fun!!

Oh boy this week's theme is sparkle & shine!
2 things I love love love!
I mean I basically have already done this in so many other Friday Fancies!
So of course this was easy & super fun!!!
And as for the accessories, well I'm all about fun rings with animals on them...
& I love mixing and matching really girly stuff with a little more edgy stuff.

Wedding #24: Coral, Navy & Gray

I threw together an outfit really fast a few days ago for work...
Coral ruffle dress, navy blue scarf & a gray sweater.
I ended up really liking this color combo...
And then I remembered a post I saw a few weeks ago
Just had to use that invitation as inspiration too...!

Wedding Inspiration #24: Coral, Navy & Gray

P.S. On a whole nother side note,
One of my new years resolutions is to work on my blog!
I made this post like 4 days ago yet stopped halfway through to work on a different post...
Need to focus more rather than multi-task constantly.

Why I have been MIA...

I have been really MIA from my blog lately...
& these are the reasons why! 

1. My best friend was here for a week & she just left last Wednesday.
I'm so so sad she left!
We had a blast...

2. Chris's military ball was on Saturday
& it was the most fun ever!!!!

I have been having a lot of fun lately & have been super busy!
Lots of Christmas shopping to be done,
also I have been working 2 jobs...
Selling wedding dresses
& working at an event venue! 
Also, I need to start planning my cousin's baby shower! 
So much to do!
So little time!
Today I am going up to Greenville to visit my grandparents & cousin
since I won't get to spend Christmas with them! 
I'm just super excited because I just downloaded all of Glee Christmas album!
& will be singing Christmas carols extremely loud while Winnie is in the back of my car 
(most likely cringing...)
