Sunny skies, salty air, and pops of neon pink are on our minds this week. A modern tropical wedding is the perfect fit for a couple looking to keep simple in paradise while adding modern flare. The whites of a classic wedding, combined with tropical green, should be the base of your palette, giving guests a clean and modern feel. Add pink with bright flowers for a more natural pop, while keeping it modern and chic with Pin-perfect modern neon decor.

Selling dresses of many different styles in the same material and pattern, this go-to online boutique can make every bridesmaid feel stunning on your special day.

With spring right around the corner, we are loving soft, spring-like colors. A blush and mauve palette is not only subtle and elegant, but it is also a perfect way to add color to the scene without overpowering the beauty of wedding white. Mauve is a shade that gives a deeper color while keeping the subtle and soft vibe of blush. Using flowers, such as peonies, that often come in the perfect shade of blush pink is a great way to continue the color throughout – not to mention, peonies are just simply magical.

This week, we are loving the presentation and warm flavors of cardamom-infused gin, the tart pucker of grapefruit, and the earthiness of rosemary mixed with the bubble of prosecco, all meeting in one delicious cocktail glass. This grapefruit-cardamom gin fizz drink may just be the signature cocktail you are looking to serve on the big day.
Grapefruit-Cardamom Gin Fizz
Infused Gin and Rosemary Syrup

rosemary sprigs for garnish
grapefruit peel for garnish
1.) In a small jar with an airtight lid, add gin and cardamom pods. Seal and store for 24 hours.
2.) In a small saucepan, bring sugar, water and two rosemary sprigs to a simmer until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and allow to cool completely. Remove the rosemary and use right away, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Using a strainer, divide the mixture in two and pour directly into glasses filled with fresh ice. Top with prosecco, and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a grapefruit peel. Cheers!
