Steve Steinhardt + Beth Helmstetter

Just a little preview of Jenny & Art's wedding that the oh-so-talented Beth Helmstetter designed in Malibu this April. Steve Steinhardt was the amazing photographer, and the beautiful flower arrangements were designed by Holly Flora. I met Jenny a few months ago and was able to experience/watch her wedding planning process. . . and I am so happy her day turned out beautifully!

Coriander Girl

Just stumbled upon this charming little flower shop located in Toronto. It's fresh and vintage-y... and I wish that it was located in southern california!

Belvoir Fruit Farms ::

I'm in love with the packaging of these cordials, presses, and juices from Belvoir Fruit Farms. Belvoir infuses, presses, and cooks fresh flowers, fruits, and spices and then blends them with clear water from Belvoir Springs. These are the perfect as drinks on their own or mixed to make a delicious cocktail. I want to throw a party so that I can fill the bar with these beautiful bottles! Check out their website for delicious cocktail recipes.

Outdoor Indoor :: Porches

If you haven't noticed already, porches are my absolute favorite part of a house. They scream family, friends, cocktails, laughter, relaxation and good conversation . . . And honestly, what more could you ask for?
