Are you a bridesmaid? Well today is your lucky day. We just discovered a hidden gem that every bride and their bridesmaids should know about and it’s a brand new shopping site called Vow to Be Chic. They’re the first online service that’s offering bridesmaids the luxury to rent designer dresses. Um, yes please! And it’s fun and easy to do too. Just browse and shop through their curated selection of beautiful designer dresses online, submit your measurements, rent the dress and voilà, the dresses is FedEx straight to you. And my favorite, it includes dry cleaning too! SO BRILLIANT! A bridesmaids new best friend. Don’t believe us? See it for yourself. “Being a bridesmaid is an expensive honor. They’re here to help.”

Last week, we had the pleasure of being invited to BHLDN’s store opening in Beverly Hills which will officially debut for the public on July 10th! After opening their storefronts in Houston and Chicago, it’s time for the West Coast brides to get a taste of BHLDN in person. Here’s a little preview of what we got to experience below and view more on our Facebook. We can’t wait for the the official opening in July!
So thankful to have our intern Sara instagram and our dear friend Connie for joining us on the fun to capture the event.
We were greeted with smiling faces from the BHLDN team, desserts from Sweet and Saucy Shop, delicious bites from Heirloom LA, and of course spinning on the ones and twos was The Flashdance.
How rad is this orange chair just happily sitting perfectly in the mix of plain white chairs? What a great idea for a wedding! Don’t be afraid to mix things up.
It was great to see a few of our favorite wedding and fashion blogger / friends there too. I spy Mara of M Loves M, Jen of Ban.do, Bri of Design Love Fest in these pictures. So much fun to see everyone’s unique style in one place.
The fashion show was divine! Their gowns are just as gorgeous in person.
BHLDN, we’re so happy you’re making a home here in Sunny California. You’re going to love it here!

The beaches in California are endless and easy to find. But the search for really unique locations are a little harder to come by. So when photographer, Jen Rodriguez, shared us this hidden gem we had to share it with you. On the side of Pismo Beach in California, there is a location where every year thousands of vibrant orange and black Monarch Butterflies flock to, seeking shelter from the freezing northern winters. It’s called the Monarch Butterfly Grove. And next to the grove is the beach and the sand dunes. A wonderful place to go to shoot your engagement pictures or even for a date! My husband and I discovered this place last year but were too late for the butterflies. Hopefully we can catch the butterflies this October.
Stephanie and Aaron, chose the grove to shoot their engagement, and we’re loving how carefree and intimate they are. You can tell they are so much in love with each other. And can we talk about the sense of style. Love everything about them! Especially the baby’s breath wreath that Stephanie is rockin’. Congratulations to the most adorable couple!
