A Blogger Goodbye - A Wordpress Hello

It's so hard to say goodbye. You have been so easy going and uncomplicated for the past few years. You are dependable and never crash when the going gets tough. But at the end of the day, you just can't do enough for me. The relationship is just so-so. I don't want to ask you to change, that would be unfair. I think you are great and definitely right for someone else, someone who doesn't have as many needs as I do. See, it's not you, it's me. I just think it's fair to let you know that I've been seeing wordpress, and it's time we made it official.

Goodbye blogger. If wordpress lets me down, I'll try to not come groveling back.

One Great Dress - Uniquely Australian

You didn't think we were done with the outback yet, did you? Especially not after you see this dress! An utterly unique creation. This dress has tons going on, we could stare at it for hours. Its a little bit vintage, a little bit sparkle and whole lot of personality. The beautifully composed pictures are from none other than Samm Blake...our new photog crush. The whole wedding scoop including where this stunner of dress came from is over at PolkaDot Bride.

Real Weddings - More Aussie Eye Candy

Ok let's just make this official. We are obsessed with Australia. Between the amazing AU weddings floating around the blogs, the tortuous facebook updates I've been getting of my bff 'working' for next four months at Bondi Beach, and then to top it off, we come across Samm Blake...a photographer who takes dreamy photos that look both vintage and modern at the same time. When Samm shared these images of Melissa and Shaun's wedding, we couldn't help be a little jealous of Melissa's amazing dress and hair accessories. Red with jealousy actually, just like those gorgeous shoes.

A Front Row Sneak Peak of Badgley Mischka Fall 2010

We were lucky enough to sit FRONT ROW at Badgley Mischka's Fall 2010 runway show today in the Bryant Park tents. The boys had yet another showing of lucious ballgowns that left us wondering...we will see white versions on their bridal line in April? A girl can dream!

This dress and the images were so angelic, they deserved a feature. The lighting was moody, so the pictures were blurry...but aren't they kind of fab that way?

Weddings Down Under - Australia

Amazing Australian weddings seem to be popping up all over the blogosphere, and here at Lovely we are experiencing major Aussie envy. We love the perfect mix of laid-back and gorgeous that exudes from the photos. In a way, these weddings effortlessly represent the qualities we've come to love and associate with the country of Australia...beautiful, fun, natural and stress-free!

Too bad Australia is a good 24 hour flight from NYC (too far for a destination wedding?) because these photographers are all amazing and the locations just dreamy!
