Paige & Shade’s wedding at Wetherington Country club had all the elements that one would expect: touches of classic, elegant, modern and of course, the turn up!  Wetherington Country Club in West Chester, Ohio is the epitome of the classic, country club meets wedding venue.  With space for the bridal party to get ready, locations indoors and out for a ceremony and an indoor reception area, this place has it all!  

Keeping with the modern and classic style of their wedding, Paige & Shade had Lauren Duffy document their wedding.  Believing in traditional practices over fleeting trends, Lauren was able to capture all of the love and emotion…and some sweet dance moves…that made up this couple’s special day!

It’s Still Cold, but, Here’s What’s Hot for 2015

Good friend and wedding planner extraordinaire, Maura Bassman is our guest blogger this week!  This uber trendy girl knows what’s up for what’s trending this year.  Guess what?  Trendy can also be classic!  Read on for inspiration!

 

As we enter February, I find myself dreaming of warm weather, spring flowers and of course,

wedding season! I’ve gathered some of my favorite wedding trends of 2015 to share with the

most fabulous of Brides who are looking to incorporate top trends into their big day. Enjoy!

1. Miniature wedding cakes

These dainty cakes can be simple or complex but one thing is for sure … small is the new big!

 

 

 

 

 

2. Skin is in!

Although this trend may upset Grandma, there is no question that scandalous dresses are the

HOTTEST trend of 2015. Everything from low backs to midriff bearing dresses were all over the

runway during this year’s bridal fashion week.

 

 

3. Marquee lights

I love love love this trend! Marquee letters are an adorable accessory to complete the perfect barn OR ballroom reception.

This picture was taken from a styled shoot that Rollers & Rouge and I participated in at the

beginning of the year. Marquee letters from One Fine Day Boutique.

 

4. Unstructured up-dos

It’s no surprise this fashion forward trend is not going anywhere in 2015. Brides want to feel

comfortable on their wedding day with hair that looks easy, fun and low-key.

 

5. Purple, purple and more purple!

Purple is the smoking hot color of 2015. Finding creative ways to incorporate purple into your

bridal look is all the rage – nails, lips, eye makeup … you name it!

Taking Care of Yourself Doesn’t End at Yoga and Kale…

Hellooooo, Rollers and Rouge!  Thanks, Natalie- my high school band geek buddy (“I promise it was cool at our school!”  No, really.)- for allowing me to guest post!

A mere two and a half years ago, I had the wedding of my dreams- outside, in my childhood backyard, a slight chill in the air, at sunset.  It was great.  What wasn’t always great was the months leading up to it, can I get an amen?  Planning, reserving, ordering, fitting, meal plans, workout plans, showers, decisions!  I wouldn’t take any of it back, mind you, but wow was it tunnel vision in a thousand different directions in those days!  My main focus was on getting more shapely- through wise eating and a boot camp, and keeping my sanity- through continuing my regular yoga practice.

What I didn’t pay as much attention to was what was going on my body! I had a makeup trial run and ordered a crapton of new, expensive, AWESOME stuff.  But what I didn’t realize then was that I needed to be focusing as much on my beauty regime as my physical one.  I still workout 4-6 days a week, I still try to eat well, and now I prioritize the ingredients going on my face and body.

My newest obsession is the line at Beautycounter.  It’s proven safe by Mia Davis and made effective by Christy Coleman.  I love their Essentials line for my daily face care.  Add in a Lustro Oil with the moisturizer and I promise your life will be changed.  What I love about this line is that it’s the best out there- not only is it toxin-free and safe for you (check out their “Never List” of ingredients they promise to, well, never use), but it also makes your skin feel amazing.  And don’t get me started on their cosmetics line.  Because it’s a new company, new products are rolling out by the month! Their newest valentine-worthy product, Scarlet Lip Sheer, is somehow “the perfect red” for truly everyone that puts it on!  And if you don’t agree, they have a fantastic 30 and 60 day return policy!

Start taking care of yourself now, with a product that looks great and takes care of you!
