We love love — and we love love stories. So much so that we're dedicating our latest magazine to them and filling its pages with love stories not only about couples (although, admittedly, these are always some of our favorite) but about creatives and their work and about learning to love your own style.  But sometimes, when you have talented vendors like Mandy Forlenza Sticos and Kate Ignatowski styling and photographing one of your love stories, you can't fit all the pretty in a handful of magazine pages...which is why we're sharing even more photos from one of our favorite shoots, Style & Grace, here. 

Thanks again to Mandy and Kate and the talented team they put together. And don't forget to look through the rest of the shoot in the mywedding magazine.

Okay, hold everything. First of all, is this bride's look not incredible? We've got a couple of tips in the magazine for what kind of inspiration to use to put together a look like this yourself, and it's breathtaking. The details on the dress have just the right amount of sparkle. We also have a not-so-minor crush on the jewelry in this shoot. It's all designed and created by a Brooklyn-based designer, Olivia Ewing, and we love the delicate lines and nature-inspired, twig-like shapes.

This blue cake is one of our favorite details from the shoot. The bright color, the gold edges, the striped linens...cake cutting perfection.

Ranunculus and fern flower arrangement by Hello Darlington from mywedding magazine photo by Kate Ignatowski

All of the flowers from the shoot were sourced from Blooms By the Box and arranged by Hello Darlington. The slightly wild, foraged feel of the arrangements (and the bride's bouquet) fit beautifully with the delicate, updated but still classic look of the shoot and the white, blue and green color scheme is just right for a wintry vibe.

One last note before we go. Thea, the designer behind Hushed Commotion, brought a handful of her prettiest accessories to this shoot for us to choose from. This silk tulle veil (which, of course, you can see in all its floor-sweeping glory right here) was too wonderful to pass up.
