Beth & Michael

If there is one thing that I passionately believe about wedding style, it's that the details are what make it fabulous. This is absolutely what I loved about Beth & Michael's Wedding!  For example, Beth's bouquet was hand-tied with a piece of vintage lace from her mother's wedding gown (with sixpence hand-sewn into the lace!).  Another fav of mine: when a consistent theme and color palate run throughout the event.  From the invitation, flowers, and wedding party attire to the escort cards, linens, and chair covers, Beth's theme of lime and cantaloupe (colors with a "pop") ran throughout.  

Besides my appreciation of Beth's wedding style, I loved working with her as a person!  Beth was so much fun and was a beautiful person on her wedding day, both inside and out! I also have to mention the amazing line-up of vendors that really made this wedding a success:

David Gaston of Gaston Photography (Can't say enough good about David.  His work is amazing.  But beyond that, brides love working with him because he is really fun and relaxed!)

Tamara with Chair Covers and Linens (Love the sage chair ties!)

Elegant Bakery made the amazing cake in the photo below...again, see the consistent theme?

Enjoy these awesome pics!

ASHLEY SIMPSON'S Wedding

Okay, that subject was for shock value---Although this Ashley Simpson isn't famous, she is every bit as cool as the super star Ashley Simpson!  I met Ashley at a bridal show in April---I met several hundred brides that day, but Ashley stuck out to me because of her funny, carefree, and relaxed personality and approach to wedding planning.  She and her sweet-now-husband, Darren, were a lot of fun to work with.  Ashley wanted hot pink bridesmaid bouquets to "pop" against their turquoise dresses.  We choose seasonal blooms (which you can't beat in June) and used peonies, garden roses, and viburnum.  The guys wore spotted pink mokara orchid boutonnieres.  Thanks Ashley & Darren for the joy to be a part of your wedding!  Congrats (:

That Arch

Are you at all intrigued by the arch on the last post? Here are some pictures of the behind the scenes work that went into it. Three designers + a lot of water tubes + amazing florals + spritzing it ever few minutes so it doesn't wilt in the sun = one fabulous arch.

Florals in the arch include phalaenopsis orchids, calla lilies, hydrangea, and larkspur.
