Heidi & Paul’s Wedding Featured on Green Wedding Shoes!

Heidi and Paul’s July wedding is being Featured on Green Wedding Shoes!! This couple was very easy-going and so much fun to work with! I love the bright colors and fun details that went into this day. It was great working with Connie Dai Photography, Violet Floral Design, and Epicurean (can’t beat a yummy  food truck)! One of the best parts of the wedding was the amazing gelato from Fior di Latte.  See the full feature on Green Wedding Shoes by clicking HERE!

Heidi and Paul chose a 100 year old barn nestled in the mountains overlooking a lake and a meadow where a buffalo herd roams (literally!).  Playful invites with a sewn fabric pocket with pinked edges containing an invitation set the tone for the day. The same fabric was used to tie the boutineers. A gorgeous Anna Campbell gown with delicate beadwork and flowing silk chiffon paired with a floral crown was perfect for this free spirited bride. Tricia of Violet Floral Design did an amazing job creating a large, lush and vibrant floral arrangement set atop on a vintage buffet for a simple yet stunning ceremony backdrop.  The couple’s American Bulldog Mattie was all dolled up as the flower girl with fresh florals attached to her collar.  For the reception tables, Tricia of Violet Floral Design used a mismatched collection of mint glass and clear class clusters packed with beautiful peaches and blush toned flowers. Lovely pastels colors created a whimsical feel. Tucked in the vases were mint ombre table numbers. Selecting the food for their celebration was one of their favorite parts of the planning process, and they couldn’t have been happier with their choices: a delicious food truck and a refreshing gelato cart, which were also huge hits with their guests. One of my favorite details was their wedding hashtag #itstartedwithamohawk. Heidi really wanted to choose an original hashtag, so she went for one of the reasons why she first fell for Paul!

Thank you everyone for pulling it together to create this lovely day:

Garden Party Bridal Shower

I wanted to design something very feminine with vivid colors for Caitlin’s bridal shower. A garden party seemed to be a perfect fit. The inspiration for the whole party started with the quote: Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” The invitation set the tone with a watercolor floral border, a honeycomb patterned envelope liner, and a bright pink envelope and Tricia Egan of VIOLET FLORAL DESIGN combined a cheerful mixture of peach, ivory and pink Peonies, blush Garden Roses, Lilac and Clematis to create a fun pastel garden-fresh palette.

A special detail, the adorable floral wristlets that greeted each guest with a Ranunculus bloom attached to the most beautiful pink ribbon. The splendid pink striped bar provided the perfect spot to gather and sip champagne. For a sweet treat, guests nibbled on colorful macaroon favors. The scrumptious waffle bar was the perfect choice for this brunch party (and what fun to include Pop Tarts in the buffet! Guests also loved the “Pin the Lips on Ryan Gosling” game! And the bride won! It turned out to be the perfect spring party that the bride wanted.

The whole party was captured on film by the talented CONNIE DAI.

Alex & Greg’s wedding is being featured in stunning Spring 2014 issue of Aisle Style Magazine! Their wedding was extra special to me because I work with Alex a lot at weddings. Alex does the most amazing hair for weddings and even did my own wedding hair. So it meant a lot when she asked me to help plan her wedding.

Getting Ready Inspiration

While the ceremony and reception is often the focus of a bride’s planning, let this shoot serve as inspiration for another very special part of the day…the “getting ready”.  There is so much excitement and anticipation during this part of the day. Here is some ideas to make it even more special.
