Saturday Song | Use Somebody

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last couple of years, then you know the Kings Of Leon version of this song. (If you don’t, go listen to it. Now. Make haste.) It’s fantastic. I just discovered this slower, singer/songwriter version of the song, which would be lovely for a first dance. Or possibly during the ceremony even. Give it a listen and share your thoughts. (The video is random but you get the idea.)


If you weren’t around this week, here’s the sitch:

I love Kings of Leon! This is a great version of their song :-)

I’m personally not a KOL fan, but ‘Closer’ has got to be one of the sexiest songs of the past few years. Although, I’m not so sure that it’s right for a wedding, per se :)

Real Wedding | Kimberly & Clayton

I’m going to be featuring some of the work of my amazing friend, the wonderfully talented photographer, Jessica Velarde. Starting out with this incredible wedding, which was held at a ranch in Carmel Valley, California. Kimberly and Clayton’s wedding was originally featured on Glamour & Grace, and you can pop over there if you’d like to hear some words from the beautiful bride on how she and her hubby pulled off this stunning DIY wedding, and her favorite moments of the day. But here today I’m just going to let the gorgeous images speak for themselves.

What an amazingly beautiful day. Congratulations Kimberly and Clayton!

Her eyes!! Omgosh. Gorgeous.

Things I Love | Rainbows

They’re kind of trendy right now. But I don’t care. Rainbows were like my favorite thing in childhood. Give me a box of crayons and I gave you a rainbow. I still love them. And I think rainbow weddings are the coolest.
