I heart my job in a big way. Every day is an exciting new adventure, a new and fabulously pretty feature to work on, or an amazing new vendor I get to meet. All the while, alongside some of the most talented gals (and guys!) I know. It’s truly a dream job that I couldn’t be more thankful for.
That being said, I hope it’s an ode to my pure excitement about getting up and ‘going’ to work every day. And today? Today is a good day. We just launched our second annual Fashion & Beauty e-magazine and it is packed with pretty my friends! I hope you’ll take a peek. And if you’re not a bride, it’s still SO worth a half hour of perusing, at least. You never know, you might just be inspired for your next event, wedding or not! Oh, and did I mention there’s a giveaway involved? Abby’s beauty bag is up for grabs. Get your fancy selves on over to SMP asap to find out the details on how to enter! xo

Last week, I wrote up a series of posts on SMP for one of the prettiest shoots I’ve seen yet. No surprise there, it was packed with gorgeously designed florals from Garden of Eden, stunning paper goods from Katie Irvin Design and an array of the most beautiful bites, all planned out pretty by Alisa Lewis Event Design and captured by Park Road Photography.
This styled soiree is such a lovely transition from summer to fall, yet it would be equally inviting for a spring gathering. Head over to Style Me Pretty for the full shoot, and two sweet DIY favor recipes! (Herbed Salt | Marinated Goat Cheese)

Hi, loves! Head on over to Style Me Pretty today to see a post I wrote on 10 Ways to Pretty-Up Your Wedding with Calligraphy + Custom Lettering. Calligraphy is just about one of my favorite wedding details so I had to share with y’all over here. xo, Melissa

Today my dears, I’m letting you all in on some of my favorite ‘girly’ fonts. I absolutely love calligraphy and pretty typography, just take a look at my lovely logo by the darling Jenna Hein of Love, Jenna. And although I do a bit calligraphy myself, I still like having an arsenal of pretty fonts to pick from. I’ve used some of these on invitation designs, menus, business cards and even my address stamps. They’re perfect for weddings and stylish soirees, from the invitations to the place cards. And bonus? More than half of them are free! Which ones do you love the most?
