MSW Spring sneak peek


OK, so I’m not totally a pink person, but I do make an exception for the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.  When I got my issue of the latest Martha Stewart Weddings (arriving on stands Monday!), I caught my breath a little after opening this spread, with florals by Matthew Robbins.  Check out the full gallery here, and if you ever have a chance, go to BBG in April when the blossoms are fully bloomed and sit under the trees, its amazing!  [secret tip: if you shake the tree a little, it will be like its raining pink petals!]

ONE ring

I’ve always felt that jewelry that was symbolic can be far more meaningful than most, so when I saw the ONE ring, I thought it would make the perfect wedding ring for a modern couple.

NELLE contest winner!

Deena Nelle Board

Congrats to Deena who’s won up to 5 NELLE clutches for her bridesmaids!  I really loved the elements that went into this board, but especially how she stepped away from the standard layout and thought outside the box.  Really great job Deena!
