feeling the love…

happy monday! this morning i’m thrilled to welcome one of my favorite bloggers, emily of once wed, to the d*s guest blog. i’m a huge, huge fan of emily’s site and constantly find myself staring at her blog jotting down decoration ideas from her featured weddings. so today i’m thrilled to have her on d*s, sharing beautiful weddings, diy projects, table stories and engagement sessions. even if weddings aren’t your thing, emily has such a great eye for these special events that they’re always jam-packed with great design ideas that are appropriate for dinner parties, birthdays and holidays- so don’t worry- a ring isn’t required to enjoy her posts this week.

today emily is kicking things off with an incredible “real wedding” from elise + patrick. their big day was so fun of beautiful fabric, paper and vintage items that i’m dying to take the afternoon off and live in that gorgeous outdoor space they used for their big day. the garlands and flowers and decorative details are just so sweet- click here to check out the full post and all 18 photos!

*also- i’m feeling especially lovey because i’m finally going to be able to announce a new d*s project next monday! so stay tuned: same time, same place, next week for a fun new project coming soon. also, in love-related news, our wedding will be in the fall issue of martha stewart weddings, on stands october 5th!
