Why on Father’s Day would my über-sweet husband DVR the US Open Pebble Beach so that I could take my own advice on movies to rent and pop in An Affair to Remember? Simply because I am a saaaaa-ppy wedding designer in my heart of hearts and that he is a total gem.

Deborah Kerr uses words like “divine” and “dahling” throughout the movie. Love her.
Pink champagne was made famous by this movie . . . pass the crystal coupes.
Vintage gowns like this one rock my world:
So naturally I had to scour la web for a few girly pinks and throw this together:

What silly romantic thing have you done lately?
