i've loved swings ever since i was little, and i still kinda enjoy them.
i would love to have a go on this one above - it has got to be the prettiest swing i ever did see.
it was designed, made and stylized by ashley meaders. she makes handmade things that are unique and original for your event or wedding.
below are some images from her portfolio.

I have admired WORK Architecture for some time now. These images are from a few years back, but still a goody. It's work they did for Anthropologie.

Here are some works from an AMAZING, amazing, photographer, Jose Villa. There is not a single photograph that doesn't scream wow.
I already have my mind made up that he'll be my wedding photographer one day. I will have no one else. Nope!
Oh, and btw, he shoots everything in film. <3
