Blogs We Love!
Our Take:
From Tacori rings , artsy photography and hippie website
recommendations PeterLoveJane is pretty cool. The
blogger loves old buildings, rainy days and wallpaper.
They are inspired by fabulous prints, music and nighttime.
Their Take:
“At Peter Loves Jane, we love feeling love, obsess over
design and always set a pretty table. We can’t get enough
of typography and texture. We love experimenting with
design; taking the tried-and-true and combining it with
something fresh.”
Our Take:
Amazing photos of beautiful people and beautiful
weddings taken by gifted professionals. All the weddings
resemble a fairy tale. We were happy to notice that some
of the story’s featured were shot for magazines.
Their Take:
“Ruffled started in August 2008 as a space to share
vintage inspired and handmade ideas for weddings.
weddings Today
the blog is one of the biggest resources for engaged
couples seeking inspiration for their weddings; blending
their unique personal styles into one heck of a gorgeous
