Monday’s Finding: Wheat Wedding Details

Before I delve in to today’s post, I want to honor a man who I greatly admire and have been inspired by in my personal life: Russell Means. He passed this morning after a battle with throat cancer on his ranch in South Dakota with his family by his side. He is walking with the Great Spirit and his ancestors now. Such a great man and an inspiration. May the work he did here on earth blossom and lead to the restoration and preservation of indigenous culture.

Today’s finding is all about the beauty and symbolism of wheat as wedding details and decor. What I love about wheat is that it has a long tradition of celebrating the Fall season without being too kitschy and theme oriented as well as being symbolic of the fruition of love and prosperity. It was even tucked in to a bride’s veil to ensure the couple’s ability to have children and to thrive financially. It’s golden hue and rough texture is perfect for a vintage or rustic wedding, particularly for a barn, ranch, or field wedding venue. Here are some beautiful examples of wheat wedding details perfect for your Fall wedding:

Friday’s Favorites: Etsy Treasuries: Delicate Baby’s Breath, Ravishing Red, Memento Mori, and Bridal Headwear for Short and Sassy Hair

Well, I’m looking forward to a bit of hopefully real snow in Denver tonight and tomorrow. I’m hoping that 30% chance ends up being a few inches. We’ve had our first snow already, but none of it survived past noon the same day. I’d love to put on my snow gear and have a snowball fight with my kiddo. Now, on with the show!

This Friday’s Favorites has SO many great wedding details I can hardly stand it. Of course, this old goth’s heart skips a beat with the Memento Mori treasury, but I think my favorite is the gorgeous red bridal gown from Avail & Company (an Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team Member). Here it is in all of its glory:

Monday’s Finding: Perfect Pumpkin Details

Hello Fall! It’s a gorgeous Fall day here in Denver with a high of 73. Such a nice break from the near hell temperatures that we had over the Summer.

Today’s finding is all about that cornerstone of Fall wedding decor, the pumpkin. There are so many great ways to incorporate pumpkins in to every Fall design style be it rustic or glam. Carve your monogram in to a pumpkin for a great escort table arrangement or cover pumpkins in lace for a vintage feel. Today I have lots of possibilities for incorporating pumpkins in to your Fall fete.

My personal fave? The amazing green cut out patterned pumpkins. Not only is the color out of the ordinary, but such amazing cut work that gives the pumpkins a lacy feeling.

Wedding Wednesday: Denim and Khaki Inspiration

Before I begin with introducing today’s inspiration board, I must ask for your thoughts and prayers for my beautiful Colorado. We are burning and the fires are like nothing ever seen before.


The High Park Fire (highly publicized last week) continues to burn and is 65% contained. The Waldo Canyon fire is also of epic proportions and doubled in size last night with 32,000 people evacuated thus far. It is threatening populated areas of Colorado Springs and has destroyed many homes. I know that there are many fires elsewhere and ask that you continue to pray for those as well. Thank you to all of those who are fighting theses fires (some in CO are fighting fires while they have already lost their own homes) and I wish for your safety and that Mother Nature would lend a helping hand. Thanks all!

For today’s Wedding Wednesday, I have an inspiration board for a casual rustic wedding with the bride wearing a gorgeous ruffled skirt paired with a cute button down denim jacket. It was this photo that inspired the board and I found some great denim accents to tie the theme all together. When using denim, I recommend a light hand in it’s application and pairing it with slightly more formal touches to bring balance to denim’s casual nature. I’ve been a long time fan of using raw cotton as part of rustic florals and the little puffs of cotton here bring a bit of whimsy to the whole affair. I hope you enjoy the board and if you are leaning towards a rustic country wedding, consider the possibilities that a touch of denim can lend to your fete.
