Pie Pops

My fiance and I are crazy about pie!  Apple, blueberry and name it, we love it!  In fact, it is the one dessert I have mastered (thanks to my mom's amazing pie crust recipe).

I recently stumbled across pie pops.  Pie on a stick - simply genious!  These adorable sweet treats would be the perfect addition to our reception's dessert table.

Beautiful Blooms

Something about peonies and hydrangeas just screams vintage elegance to me.  I can't resist these dreamy blooms and hope to incorporate both on my wedding day.  For florals, I would like to pair light and feathery peonies with full hydrangea blooms.

To complete this perfect picture, lots and lots of candles!

Bridal Buzz

Since the engagement, I've fallen in love with several wedding related blogs, most of which you can find under the "Inspiration" section on my blog.  One of my favorites that I've been following for almost 2 years belongs to my sister-in-law, Kristin Cronkright.  Her blog, Bridal Buzz, is a wonderful collection of wedding and party inspirations, brought to you straight from the mind of an invitation designer.

I also have the pleasure of having Kristin create our wedding invitations and stationary.  Her handmade, custom invitations at RSVP Invitation Studio, offer something for every style.  I'm very excited about our customized invitations and will soon have a sneakpeak to share with you all!

Be sure to check out Kristin's delightful stationary at her shop RSVP Invitation Studio where you can find everything from wedding invitations, baby announcements, holiday greeting cards, and unique gifts for that special someone!

Thank you Kristin for your inspiration!

Capture The Moment

I can't begin to express how excited John and I are about our wedding photographer!  We will have the pleasure of working with Crystal and Mike of Toole Art Photography, who perfectly blend a mixture of modern photojournalistic and classic photography styles.  Their ability to capture every detail will allow John and I to revisit our wedding day year after year and get lost in the love, laughter, and joy that will be shared with friends and family on this special day.

Here are just a few of my favorite moments captured by Toole Art Photography

Perfect Palette: Seaglass & Blush Pink

I must say that I've thoroughly enjoyed the process of planning the wedding of my dreams thus far.  Most decisions have come quite easily and without hesitation.  I will admit that I've been in awe of all things wedding related since I was a young girl and have had a pretty clear vision of what this special day should  look like.   However this vision became quite blurry when it was time to select a theme and color palette for the wedding - due not to a lack of inspirational ideas but rather to the fact that I was drooling over too many and simply could not make up my mind. 

Well folks, the battle is over and I could not be happier with our choice!  The painting below was the original inspiration.  Found by my sister-in-law, Kristin, this combination of soft seaglass and blush pink tones immediately caught my eye and inspired this perfect color palette.

This color palette is incredibly calming yet interesting and unexpected!  It's the perfect combination to set the tone for a modern spin on vintage elegance.  Here are just a few inspiring details that I've fallen in love with.

Blissfully In Love

Welcome to my blog, Finding Bliss In Love!  Five years ago, I met my best friend, John.  On May 30, 2009 - John made me the happiest girl in the world by asking to have my hand in marriage. 

This blog was created to capture the inspiration and excitement around the planning of our wedding.  I hope you enjoy!
