Have you checked out part I of Caitlin & Adair’s wedding yet? Go ahead, we can wait.  Once you do, you’ll find all the evening’s memorable moments below, but first, let’s set the stage for cocktails and dinner for the evening, design by the ever-incredible Pam Barefoot of ATrendy Wedding.

Sooooo loving this way of doing the seating chart. The shabby chic, rustic window pane + the lovely elegance of Pretty Mail’s calligraphy = divine and unique detail! LOVE it, Pam!! 🙂

Bill’s totally digging this shot Anne got of their guests looking at the old window to find their tables.

We couldn’t have had a more picturesque evening.

Ice cream helps keep the summer heat away.

What a night it was! So much fun and everything was just GORGEOUS thanks in large part to such a fabulous dream team. We just LOVE working with all of you!

Thanks for joining us this afternoon and we hope you have a fantastic and fun weekend!!

PS – Friday’s FAB Finds will return periodically during the crazy busy wedding season! We can’t wait to share some great finds with you soon! xoxo…


Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed reading Part I earlier today. As hard as it was to narrow down our favorite moments, it may have been even harder to narrow down all the beautiful, vintage details Nikki and Pam had collected throughout the years. Be careful – upon viewing all the delicious eye candy that follows, we’d hate for you to go into diabetic shock. 😉 Enjoy!

Even their beloved pooches made a virtual appearance on the bottle openers!

The Hokie birds above (and placed by their wedding cake) might be an obvious nod to their alum, Virginia Tech, but there was more subtle personalization. The original Roy Rogers lantern below belonged to Nikki’s dad when he was a boy.

Oh, and in case you missed it, be sure to check out the Friday’s FAB Finds featuring their gorgeous invitation and letter pressed paper products!

Thanks so much again, Nikki & Josh, for including us in your perfectly fabulous wedding! We wish we could do it all again next weekend! ;-D


Whoo-boy you guys are in for a treat today if you love stationary and papers as much as I do. I’ve been so excited to share Nikki & Josh’s invitation suite ever since we received it in the mail. Each and everyone of their guests had to have been super psyched just seeing the gorgeous calligraphy on the invite, let alone what was inside. Well, heck, I’ll just show ya!

Invitations We Love – Nikki & Josh

Notice anything especially interesting about them by any chance???

They’re printed on WOOD! Pure GORGEOUSNESS!! (That’s their welcome bag for their hotel guests in the background, btw! Always such a thoughtful touch.)

Of course, we had to take a few pics of them in their proper wedding environment. (You’ll see this lovely vintage screen door more in their full blog post – can’t wait to share more of their wedding soon – it held the escort cards, which of course were also part of the whole suite.)

They were designed by the incomparable Saima Khan Saima Says Design and perfectly captured the mood of their sweet, fun and flirty vintage inspired wedding to come! (She also addressed the gorgeous envelopes!)

Can I just say how much I *heart* turquoise blue and orange together?! Well, I guess I can since it’s my post. ;-D

We seriously can’t wait to share soooo much more of this incredible wedding with you, but we hope you enjoy this FAB amuse bouche! (Yeah, I might have a tad bit of Top Chef fever again!)

Happy Friday!!
