Real Wedding: Marcos and Lisa

July 29, 2011

We are so excited to share this beautiful San Francisco wedding. The couple Lisa and Marcos got married in January at the Bently Reserve. Between the planning by Christopher Lee of Leftwich events, the stunning florals by Nancy Liu Chin Designs and the talented Danielle from Gillett Photography, this wedding is a knockout. The graphic linens and just enough colored accents work perfect for this international ballroom wedding.

Thank you to Danielle for sharing these great shots!

Edible Trends: Biscuit Lovin'

July 27, 2011

Inspired by New York Times article You are Making Your Biscuits Wrong, we couldn't help but feature the homemade biscuit as our food of the week. With ingredients as simple as flour, baking powder and little milk, who could imagine that there countless ways to make them "wrong". Whether you use heavy cream or milk, salt or sugar, a fresh baked biscuit is certain to be a crowd pleaser if styled correctly.

Here is some eye candy that proves how this classic treat can be the sweetest addition to any affair, once you get your recipe perfected, that is...

Biscuits can be classic...or cutesy!

Happy baking!

The List: Non-Cheesy Bridesmaid Gifts

July 25, 2011

This week PBL attempted to compile a list of "non-cheesy" bridesmaid gifts, and we succeeded. Don't believe us? After a little research we discovered that brides can impress their leading ladies without embarrassment!

One of the gift lists on The Knot particularly inspired us. The key is to keep things simple but personal  so bridesmaids feel appreciated and special. We pulled our top ten.

1. First-edition of her favorite novel with a sweet note inside
2. Personalized clutches for the day-of
3. Gift certificate to her favorite boutique
4. Unique jewelry for an eclectic bunch
5. Hand-bound photo album or scrapbook
6. Wishing for another honeymoon? Get her matching travel gear
7. Toms shoes in fun colors
8. Wine lover? Easy. Bottle of her favorite
9. Purse-sized camera for the digital gal
10. Nothing says thank you like a well-deserved day at the spa!

Real Wedding: Aaron Delesie in Bali

July 15, 2011

Normally PBL likes to feature photographers we know very well and work with often, but this Bali wedding is just too breathtaking not to share. Photographer Aaron Delesie captured this wedding and translated it into a modern fairytale. This wedding is SO different from what we see over and over again on typical design blogs and that is precisely why we love it!
