Wedding Feature: Doyle & Doyle

I love weddings, every aspect of them are open to interpretation, from the sweet and simple to the ornate and outlandish, they all fascinate me. Its all about the choices that were made, and why, you know that with every wedding the couple has the opportunity to customize each detail, now some do, and some don't, but its their choices that keep me thrilled to see the new wedding magazines every month or the wedding blogs updated daily. I discovered a company that I have been looking for for years Doyle & Doyle, I knew they HAD to exist. The founders of the company (two sisters) wanted to find unique and special pieces for their collection. When reading about the two sisters on their about page I found a snippet from Pamela's bio that summed up the way I felt about wedding rings "jewelry is not only beautiful, but that it plays an important role within one's life." That hit the nail on the head and I was sold, no cookie cutter rings for me here!

After browsing around their site for the wedding ring that gives me chills and the giggles at the same time, I found that there were many. Here are my top picks, and these are just the rings!

FYI: the first three are my favorite!

Thank you Doyle & Doyle for being breath taking!

Home: I think I'm in love


This is not my home. Although I do LOVE my home, I am having deep feeling for this one. Deep love feelings. There are a plethora of textures, patterns, styles, and character. Only 2 colors, black & white, so many possibilities.

I'm redoing my bedroom in white, I think I just found a new role model.

A modern-gothic-clean-masculine-dark-romantic-sitting room.

A clean-feminine-modern-luxurious-elegant-chic sitting room.

An ALL-OF-THE-ABOVE space.

Thank you to Door Sixteen for the posting (and for being wonderful) and to B&B Italia.

Pictures that make me happy


Vertical gardens, aren't they fun?

This makes me think of "The Quiet Man"

I just want to be there, wandering through the moors (there has to be moors here, they're just not in this shot :)

LOVE this apartment... more on this later...

This is what I would do if I had a pond in my back yard, it makes me think of Jane Austen's timeless romances filling the pages.

oooh, fancy dresses.... where is this paradise?

Feeling a bit of "The Quiet Man" again... maybe I need to take a trip to Ireland.

Beautiful clothes, have a romantic edwardian feel, combined with a dreamy scene. Its a win win.

She reminds me of the crazy blonde in "Under the Tuscan Sun" (love that movie by the way) but seriously, she's pretty fabulous, makes me want to work harder primping.
