Its a Beautiful Day wedding






Thanks to Valery for sending this along to me! During the 5th International Alvar Aalto Seminar last summer, Dai Fujiwara, a designer for Issey Miyake, challenged all the keynote speakers to join together to create a wedding for Finnish couple Ulla-Maaria Mutanen and Jyri Engestrom. Participants included [get this!] Issey Miyake, the Bouroullec brothers, Hella Jongerius, Louise Campbell, Ilkka Suppanen and Camper. Best of all, the couple got to have their event at the offices of Alvar Aalto himself! The whole thing is pretty amazing, as seen by the images. You can find more information at the weddings website, Its a Beautiful Day.

Starting from top:
Dress by Issey Miyake, shoes by Camper
The lovely couple all decked out
Candelabras by Louise Campbell
Wedding chairs by the Bouroullec brothers – the couples names will be written on the back.
Ring by Ilkka Suppanen – made of gold thread, its meant to symbolize that you can get “married” every day if you like.

Saw Emily’s work on Oh Joy! and had to post! I love how organic her work is, taking cues from the sea. Who knew squid tentacles could be sexy?

Me and Ro




Me & Ro truly has exquisite pieces of jewelry…modern and ethereal at the same time. The earrings and necklaces would make great bridesmaids gifts and the engagements rings would make great…well…engagement rings! Completely drool worthy, no guy could go wrong proposing with one of these puppies.

Auto event – Get Committed

Auto, one of my favorite stores for jewelry, home accessories, and the such, is launching a collection of engagement, wedding, and commitment rings. As part of New York’s Design Week, its a great excuse to drag your hunny over for some not-so-subtle hints.

Sunday May 20 6-8pm.

“Please join us for the launch party of auto’s engagement, wedding and commitment ring services. We invited our stable of jewelry designers to think outside the “blue box” and come up with their own interpretation of wedding and engagement rings. Finally, a good excuse to get committed.”

Absolutely beautiful! If i had my chance to do it again, I would wish for the Lentil ring by Caroline Ellen….its the big one up top with the mini diamonds all over it. A wedding band fits PERFECTLY underneath. Its very “take THAT tradition!” You can find it at Fragments in Soho, and apparently Caroline will do it in other metals. Definitely check her out.
