Waterfront weddings are definitely our jam, and this beauty from last season still has us swooning! From the gorgeous bride and groom portraits in a most felicitous sunflower field to the wildflower-lined mahogany farm tables to the adorable naked cake, everything about this Tred Avon Yacht Club wedding in Oxford, Maryland was as natural as the couple saying “I do.” Previously featured on Style Me Pretty, this wedding is a rustic meets boho meets Eastern Shore dream, beautifully captured by Krista and Davey of Krista A.

How To Plan a Last-Minute V-Day Party

We get it, some years Valentine’s Day just isn’t your biggest priority—even if you’re in a relationship. So if you haven’t planned a killer getaway or made that coveted dinner reservation, don’t sweat it! There’s nothing wrong with throwing a low-key, last-minute couples party for a fresh and fun take on this date-night dominated holiday. Here are three quick tips to get you started!

Stick with Your Standbys
For us, that means stopping by our go-to décor destination Dwelling & Design for a pop of pink courtesy of their colorful flatware line.

Roses are a Girl’s Best Friend
At least on Valentine’s Day because they are everywhere, even in grocery stores! Pair them with some snapdragons and leafy greens like we did here for a loose, textured look. 

And So is Rosé
If champagne is a Valentine’s Day must, Rosé champs is a double must! Garnish with frozen raspberries and blackberries for the perfect pop of deep berry hues.
