Amanda Spyksma, how do I love thee?…If I counted the ways, I’d be here all day.   Planning Amanda & Alex’s Old Sugar Mill wedding was truly a blast from beginning to end. And as you’ll see in the following post, these two are beautiful people, both on the inside and the outside. One of […]

I recently stumbled across this site, Weddington Way, while looking for the perfect shade of purple bridesmaid dresses for one of our clients for next year. I got sucked in quick and ended up spending the better part of a morning on this site playing with color and style combinations. {You know…quality assurance testing the […]

There’s no doubt that fall has finally arrived. With the leaves changing and so many textures and colors arriving in natures palette, it’s easy to find inspiration all around you. With the change in the season, I found myself drawn to the unique mix of tweed and lace. I love that it’s soft, beautiful, unique, […]

This June, I had the pleasure of planning one of the most incredibly beautiful weddings of my career thus far. It wasn’t just the decor of the wedding, or the sweetness of the love these two share, but it was these two people themselves that, to me, were the epitome of beautiful.   Koula is […]

Here’s how this story goes:  I go out with friends and the hubby to see a concert at Ace of Spades and fall madly in love with this funky, yet swanky night club venue. Two months later, I am asked to plan an Association for Bridal Consultants Dinner for our August meeting. As is typical […]

When we started our Top 10 series {which highlighted our favorite elements from certain weddings} we knew we couldn't just spill all of the goodness we have stored up from our most fabulous weddings of 2010. So many of our weddings were filled to the brim with fabulous details that it was too hard to […]

While working on Amira & Jon’s wedding, I was fortunate to learn about something that was not only new to me, but also intriguing, fun and fantastically festive; The Egyptian Zaffa Ceremony {The Zaffa is a human parade of belly dancers and drummers surrounding the bride and groom, singing/playing happy songs. The bride and groom […]

Let’s face it. Every cake is my favorite cake…because I am a cake junkie. However, my cake addiction has been taken to a whole new level by my wonderful friend and colleague, Rebecca of Sweet Cakes by Rebecca. I hesitate to call Rebecca’s creations Just “cakes”. They are far more delicious than any other cake […]

If I  could write just one word about this wedding to sum it all up it would simply be "Beautiful". It all started with Linda & Brian, who are two of the most genuinely beautiful people you could ever meet.  Add to that two towering oak trees {one with a lighted canopy to dine under}, […]

Being the big sap that I am, I just had to include this category again this year. Jill and Mike had something special about them overall. They exuded so many wonderful qualities. Sincerity, love, class, genuineness and true happiness. When I met both their parents, it was clear where a great deal of it had […]

I was thrilled to be able to plan and style this baby shower for my dear friend, Jackie of Jacqueline Photography {who also photographed the shower}. I had so much fun collaborating with the girls from Invitations Ink to pull this baby shower together. Inspired by the vintage-esque tricycle that Jackie’s grandmother bought for baby […]

We were lucky enough to be featured in a few places in 2010 including some very stylish blogs and a little TV Show on WeTV called Platinum Weddings. And, since we plugged the hell out of that one in 2009, I felt it was time to move on to the feature from 2010 that really […]

Well, it doesn’t take much more than a guy taking his shirt off to prove that a dance party was one for the books. 2010 seemed like the year for people to just let go of all inhibitions and seriously GET DOWN! Maybe it was Lady Gaga, maybe it was the delicious wine…or more likely […]

Sometimes it’s not just the photo, but the story behind it. But let’s not lie, it’s still got to be a kick ass photo. I get tears in my eyes every time I look at this photo. First, because the beauty of it truly overwhelms me every single time I look at it. And second, […]
