Today, we’re sharing some new websites we think you should know about. My BFF, Nicki Clendening, owner of Scout Designs NYC, has found a new way to spread her exquisite taste and collectible items with her new shop, Beetle.

Ever since I’ve known Nicki she has always had an eye for objects, and she is an avid traveller and collector. So, Beetle is now a place you can go to shop her finds. The above is a sample of some of my favorites.

Since I’m on my last week of no carbs for lent, this amazing Zucchini Pasta recipe from Thebault For Two is at the top of my list. The author of this relatable and approachable cooking blog is the sister of one of my favorite fun brides, and I’m loving following along for some of the family recipes.

We just celebrated  with Hampden Clothing for their 10 year anniversary.  Hampden is a fashion forward hot spot here in Charleston, and she happens to carry one of my most favorite designers- Co. While in the store recently, I spotted this sequined stunner by Co, and thought it could be the most amazing top for a mother of a bride, or with fabulous white formal pants for a bride’s friday night ensemble.

Hope you check out some of our newest favorites on the scene.

We are so proud and thrilled to introduce the passion project of our friend, photographer, Lucy Cuneo.  We asked Lucy to talk to us about her new line of fine art floral photography where she walks us through her process and the beginning of an idea.

“I am so pleased to be able to introduce our Fine Art Flower Series; it has been absolutely amazing to realize this vision which has been stuck in my head for a number of years.   I graduated with a masters in photography from SCAD in 2012 and have wanted to expand our wedding photography business to include Fine Art for quite some time; I was of course so nervous to release these and am totally overwhelmed by their reception, I cannot wait to share more.”

“As a photographer, I am particularly interested in texture and color.  This series is an exploration of natural abundance; using traditional photographic film has afforded the images a greater depth, softness and sense of luxury, all which are necessary to create inviting, cloud-like images.  Armed with only my cameras and a vision, I reached out to Kiana Underwood of Tulipina Designs; her appreciation of color I truly admire and she was invaluable in bringing this series to life.”

“The photographs really shine in their largest size — 36×48.  The idea of the series was to fill a frame with life-size flower “heads” and have it be an unmatched sea of color and beauty.  “Charlotte Rose” our first piece is a 9 foot installation which we put together our first day in San Francisco.  We hammered out the series in three long days in a natural light studio there; I am so grateful to Kiana Underwood of Tulipina, and her team, for their efforts in helping to achieve these shots that bring us so much joy. It’s only the beginning, we have so much more to come!!”

Happy Monday!  Today I wanted to share one of my new favorite ideas- Chic Sketch! Chic Sketch is a live fashion illustration service and a new & innovative way to turn your wedding photos and guests into custom fashion sketches.

– Wedding Chic Sketch Kiosk with real fashion illustrators. It’s like a photo booth but better, because we sketch you and your guests!

– Pre Wedding and Post Wedding Sketches- On this note, I think having sketches of each of your bridesmaids done to ask them to be a bridesmaid would be such a sweet and personal idea.  And, using your sketch on to make custom notecards with your new married name after the wedding would be so great!

-They are also starting to make great gift items like cell phone covers and picture frames, which would also be a fabulous engagement gift for any friends getting married, hostess gift around the holidays, or wedding party gifts.
