A Picture Says A Thousand Words.

A picture says a thousand words, what will your photos say about your wedding?

I have to admit, lately I’ve been having a little bit of an obsession with photos and all the innovative new ways photographers capture the bride and grooms day. Photos not only provide memories of the wedding day but they give a little glimpse of the bride and grooms personalities.  For future generations these pictures will be looked back on and be a reminder of the wonderful couple that came together on that amazing day.

SO please excuse if the next few blogs are inspired by stunning photography. I’m sure you won’t mind!

Your bridesmaids and groomsmen are such a special part of your day AND your lives so have your pictures be the best illustration of that.

Make it sweet..

Make it fun!..

Something Blue That’s New

Brides have heard this saying a million times before and every bride is different with what items they choose to represent each category of this timeless tradition. Since the Victorian era, brides were told that by incorporating something from each group into their wedding day attire they would bring good luck and success to their marriage.  Wearing something blue dates back to ancient times when the color was said to symbolize faithfulness, purity and loyalty.  Modern brides love to be unique and stand out from the rest, after all it is their big day.  So why not change up the status quo and chose something different than the typical blue garter belt?

My favorite on trend idea? Blue nail polish! Manicures are becoming a crucial part of the fashion world. These days leaving the house without a fresh bold color on your nails is like leaving without your purse!  Nails are taking over the runways and red carpets.  With fun patterns, colors, and even textures there are so many different possibilities to choose from.

When choosing to go blue for your wedding day you can go bold or subtle with this trend.  If you don’t want the blue to clash with the other colors in your wedding go for a delicate blue decal or just one blue nail on your ring fingers.  You can also wear blue on your feet for a fun and simple pop of the color.  But if you’re feeling daring go full out and show off a gorgeous Tiffany, a deep navy, or a vibrant pattern on your fingers for all to see!

Dreaming of a White Wedding

Yesterday we avoided the roaring blizzard by drifting off to a beautiful vision of a beach front wedding. Now that snow has landed and we’re all safely snuggled by the fire let’s embrace the beautiful white wonderland and talk about the weddings that welcome the snowflakes and winter setting.


Snowy, winter weddings are great for incorporating natural elements because there are so many ways to include decor from good ol’ mother nature.  Evergreen branches, rustic wood touches, and adorable pine cone bouquets create an enchanting atmosphere for guests while they sip hot cocoa and inhale the warming scents of winter.

These weddings are great for winter sport lovers or for those who simply appreciate the cozy feelings winter can bring. They can be created with elegance and sophistication or tailored to be quirky and fun. The decision is up to you!

Beach Chic Soiree

Is the cold winter weather making you dream of a tropical beach getaway?

I fell in love with this intimate, casual yet elegant table for 4 complete with comfy, low seating, soft fabric draped canopy and capiz shells and a crystal chandelier for just the right juxtaposition of natural vs. traditional shimmer. The smooth , blanched Monzanita branch table scape accented with tropical flowers and shells adds that connection to the sea just in case your prime waterfront location somehow left you yearning for more.
