One of my best friends, Shanelle, called me yesterday to tell me she just got engaged to her bf of about 5 years Andrew! Of course I have offered to plan her wedding, and I can't wait for our first planning session. The last conversation we had was about how she wanted a destination wedding (Hawaii, Mexico!!!), but that was promptly followed by "We'll see, I'm sure it's a long ways away."... that was a month ago. Needless to say I'm stoked to help plan a beautiful wedding for one of my besties, it definitely helps when you know someone inside and out, and I will keep you in the loop along the way.

Wooden invitation suites by Oslo Press. Shanelle is from Guam and loves island culture, these invitations would be a great way to tie in the islands, especially if her wedding is in Hawaii.

She has somewhat expensive taste...what better shoe for Shanelle than Chanel? Pink and ruffled for that matter.
More ideas to come, it's only been 24 hours!

Thinking about a bouquet with only these beautiful pink astilbes.

Luxurious Mokuba ribbon will tie in the grey.

We are planning a wedding with all the right stuff. Beautiful European pink hues, dove grey undertones and a lot of romance. Check out some of the stuff we're inspired by!

These glasses at Anthropologie are to die for!

The couple will be married on the beach, and what better getaway vehicle than a beach cruiser?!
On another note: I know the blog has been lacking as of late!!! We've been really busy not only with weddings/events/business things, but also being a Mom. Thanks for your support of the blog and the business.

Real Wedding: Cute Couple Sarah & Steven

We did some fun work for a wedding out at the Citadel Beach House in the end of June (HOTTEST DAY EVER) for Sarah & Steven Truschka. The young couple wanted a colorful, playful wedding with design elements to match.
So we brought in the bridesmaid dress colors of bright pink, purple and green and incorporated them into the linens, flowers, favors, everything! We did lemon and lime place cards because the refreshments at the cocktail hour were huge glass jars of lemonade, limeade, punch and peach tea. The favors were mason jars with pink and yellow lemonade mix for guests to take home.

Congratulations Sarah & Steven!
