Take a peek into a wedding from last weekend. If you don’t feel love and happiness, you are dead inside.

I am honored the bride and families trusted me to take care of every detail down to the bouquets. Such a huge feat, I had to ask my co-designer, Tab, to help with centerpieces, garland and the arch. He is beyond FanTabulous!

I only hope I can be there when these lovelies begin having beautiful babies and celebrate and fawn over them as well!

Thank you for letting me be a part of this most beautiful day!

Also, thank you to all of the vendors who put up with me as well!

Hey! My Family made it to the shindig! I spent 2.3 minutes with them though I have to say, my main dude is great with clean up and conversation! I love you! Thank you for sticking with me for 18+ years and my multitude of career changes! xoxo

navy blue was the theme

I tend to peruse the photographer's websites every once in awhile to see if I can catch a glimpse of work I have created for brides. Thankfully the photographers leave about photographic evidence of creations that once existed.

Wow! 2016 just flew by!!! 

I have to confess, I don't remember much of the year only because there was so much beautiful activity twirling around!

Here is an example of such beauty:

The whole family was such a joy to meet and work along side as well as a few of these vendors.

the details

The beauty of calligraphy is you can add a signature touch or what designers in the industry like to call "branding" to your special day. These personalized cups, napkins and matches match the Save-the-Date invite sent out a few months ago and will also match the upcoming wedding invitation going out soon. Stay tuned for the wedding upcoming wedding invitation!!!

Reception Chalk Board

Hot Mess here at a reception!!!! Well, I AM a mess and this was a reception for a friend's daughter and I DID DO this chalkboard HOURS before the party began. and I WAS super hot because I'm peri-menopausal....

 I have to say, doing chalkboards for a friend is WAAAYYY more stressful than writing stuff out for strangers or for people I haven't had a 25 year relationship with.....

 

Wax Seal Place Cards

A bride I recently worked with created a unique way to present her place cards.

I created the white place card with a bone folder then wrote with black ink in a Copperplate font on the lower portion of the card.  She followed up with a red wax seal incorporating her soon-to-be initial on the top of the card.

A beautiful and elegant way to do a place card or escort card for your occasion!
