Carnival {love}

Last week, 100 Layer Cake posted one of the coolest weddings I've ever seen, I almost died and went to bridal heaven.. honestly, this is my dream wedding. The balloons, m'stash, color scheme, creative centerpieces, the dress.. (OMG the dress...), even the little dinosaur in Lisa's hair piece... I LOVED it all!!!

I used to dream about the big dress, gazillion flowers, huge venue.. but over the past couple years, the better half and I envision something a little different for our nuptials.. 100% us in every way. We are unconventional traditionalists.

After making my blog rounds this afternoon, I fell in love again... Sarah Maren turned another fantastic shoot into gold. The day after the beautiful Lisa and handsome Goeff tied the knot, they went on a "day after" shoot... I'm not going to lie when I say I am UBER jealous. It's not really a secret.. I am obsessed with the idea of having a carnival themed wedding. The better half and I talk about leasing a ferriswheel all the time.. I'm serious!! I find these dreamy and inspiring..

anyways, enough of my babbling! On with the photos...

Paper {love}..

I love getting wedding invitations in the mail.. it's no surprise considering i love paper goods in general. If you are looking for inspiration to creating the perfect invite for your special day, look no further than once wed. I absolutely love everything I've found on the site so far..
here are a few of my faves..

I've also been a fan of this set for quite some time now. I've printed out many photos from this wedding and stuck them in my inspiration book for future reference.. I love the red and turquoise combination..

And last but not least... the theme image logo/monogram.
This is so simple yet beautiful.
