Popping The Question in Los Angeles, CA

Truthfully, when I think of traveling around Los Angeles I get a bit overwhelmed. I know Becca would agree with me (after a personal driving experience with her)! A city that jam-packed can cause headaches BUT there are quite a few hidden gems underneath all the “stuff.” Los Angeles has some of the most beautiful wedding venues- gardens especially – which is translated into perfect proposal locations as well. There are a plethora of glitz and glam venues in LA that are worthy of a marriage proposal but if you’re in search for a bit more of a fairy tale-esk venue, have a look at these. You’ll fall in love! Did I mention they would be phenomenal for engagement shoots too?

The Office Proposal

Michael and Holly are engaged! Of course I realize it’s just a show but I have to say it was one of my favorite proposals done via sitcom. I’ve been dying for a non-cliche, well thought out tv proposal. :) An office proposal, no pun intended, seems pretty unromantic at first glance. However, if you have a relationship that developed in the office and you can afford a bazillion pillar candles, then I’m all for it! I seriously encourage candlelight at any small, indoor proposal space; it does wonders in transforming a simple room. Plus you can be budget savvy by reusing the candles at your wedding. Now we’re talking! In honor of Michael and Holly and the many laughs they’ve provide us, here is The Office proposal!

Hope this brought a bit of joy and laughter to your day. Happy proposing! 

Love,

Monday “Rocks”!

Hello everyone!! Monday “Rocks”! is back after a few weeks off! Congratulations to our Bringing Back Romance winners and also, to our very own Yes Girl, Kendall and her new husband Tommy! The wedding was absolutely amazing, everything went wonderfully! It was great to see everyone and to dance the night away! Here are my picks for this week…


This modern princess cut engagement ring is so beautiful. It is on the larger side but that’s why I love it! It’s covered in diamonds and I can just imagine it’s sparkle, the diamonds continue onto the triple row shank. The height of this ring adds a dramatic effect and would be sure to catch attention! You can find this gorgeous ring at Shiree Odiz.

 

This Harry Winston piece is a little more modest compared to my other picks, but nonetheless, breath-taking. A thin, diamond coated band holds a cushion-cut, colorless diamond center stone and pave diamonds all set in platinum. You can pair this with two matching wedding bands to add more “whoa” or keep it beautifully simple.

Hard to tell because there is so much detail, but this is a 3 stone diamond engagement ring from Since 1910. There is no other greater word to describe this ring but “rich.” This ring is overwhelming but in a very good way. This is a princess-cut (fitting, since it looks like royalty), surrounded by two smaller princess diamonds. In addition there are pave-set round brilliant cut diamonds which surround all three stones and are also set underneath the basket. It’s easy to get lost in all it’s glamour!

This round cut diamond is from one of my favorite designers, Danhov. Again a little more simple compared to the rest, but still very enchanting. It has a diamond-masked, side split shank carrying the center stone and pave diamonds, much similar to the Harry Winston piece above. Don’t let the simplicity of this ring fool you, once this is on your finger, it will take over!

I hope you have enjoyed this week’s engagement ring picks!

I’ll see everyone next Monday, have a great week!

Love,

Invitation Bliss

Pretty Paper. This is one of my favorite things. When it comes to planning a wedding, engagement party or a bridal shower the invitations are not just a sheet of information but the appetizer before your entree. The paper, fonts, and styles set the tone for what’s about to come and personalize your event. At the moment, I am on the prowl for bridal shower invitations and I knew one of the best places to start was Etsy. Pure creativity and craftiness floods from those Etsy shops. I fully realize it may be strange to get excited about fonts and paper but these are a few I heart from my search. They may not be for every occasion but they’re pretty darn cute, eh?!

You can never go wrong with a letter press invitation. Classic! You can find this at Pistachio Press’ shop.

I’m pretty much obsessed with this drawing of Alice. Invitation by Loralee Lewis.

Absolutely love the navy and yellow combo and the anthropology feel by Trinity St Studio.

Any invitation that looks hand painted like this one I’m sold. With this invitation you can change the font and color to suit your shower. Check out more designs at Andrea Gerig Designs Shop.

Love the pops of persimmon and yellow, but what makes me such a fan of this design is that the background has this vintage, burlap texture. Find this invitation at Sweet Pea Baby Shop.

Love,
