Berrinda and Andrew – Love and Sunshine

With February on the way out I’ve decided we are going to celebrate this week with lots of love and sunshine. It’s my hope that Planet Earth will take the hint and stop sending snow our way!

With that in mind, I have for you a wedding filled with sun, palm trees and creativity.

Set in beautiful Arizona, this lovely couple didn’t have to worry that snow would ruin their special day! Continue reading

Nicole and Sean – Cereal and Shoes

I know, I know – at first glance this wedding looks relatively tame. Aside from the shoes of course, which obviously didn’t result in any sore tootsies for this bridal party — but it has a very unique twist which inspired me to post it. There is nothing I love more than finding a wedding the genuinely reflects the couple. In my opinion, that’s the most important detail, and one that many people tend to overlook.

In order to keep to their budget the couple focused their efforts on DIY projects and as a result their wedding had a very personal touch.

Because no one can say it better than she can, I’m going to let the Bride, Nicole, tell you about her wedding, and the planning that went into it! Continue reading

Wedding Napkins and… Superman?

Wedding fair

Cloth Napkins?

Paper Napkins?

Folded?

Napkin Rings?

The decision might be an easy one for you, but at some point you’ll have to decide what kind of napkins you want to use, and how you would like to display them. It depends completely on your taste and budget, but to help you decide I’ve put together a few various types that you could potentially use.

Keep in mind that napkins aren’t just for place settings, they are also often included in dessert tables, candy buffets, coffee bars and even the cake display.

Here you can see the classic folded napkin, which is usually either slightly decorated, as this one is, or placed in a champagne glass.

Black and White and Cowboy Boots

The story here is a classic one, city girl, country boy and inevitable true love. This wedding really shows off their two backgrounds while maintaining elegance and beauty.

The unifying theme of this wedding is the use of the couple’s monogram. It is a great example of how one personalization can pull the whole thing together to create a look that is distinctly their own.

Vintage Valentines Wedding

vintage valentine girl raincoatWith Valentines coming up so soon I have decided that all the posts this week are going to have at least a little something to do with the holiday.

A holiday that of course results in more engagements than any other day of the year!

While trying to think of a new way to approach the subject, an idea for a Valentines wedding theme just popped into my head. With vintage decor so popular, and for good reason, it made perfect sense to me to incorporate it into a Valentines wedding.

Vintage Valentines cards are charming, unique and a perfect representation of a time gone past.

With the focus on adorable sketches and cute puns from the 40’s and 50’s, they easily pave the way for the creation of an entire theme.
