Little Boys & Bow Ties!

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

This post is definitely special to my heart! I had the pleasure along with Carissa of JL Designs & Courtney of Joyful Weddings & Events, of throwing one of my best girlfriends Jesi, from Jesi Haack Weddings a little baby shower to celebrate the birth of her adorable little son Maverick.  Jesi has been such a blessing in my life and I loved being about to give back to her just a little.  The theme that Courtney came up with was “Bow ties” and I have to say I was smitten with it from the start.

The talented ladies, Karrie & Elizabeth, from Posh Paperie created the cutest invitations and paper pieces for the party.  Of course I have to say a HUGE thank you to Carlie, of Gabriel Ryan Photography for the fabulous photos…they are just perfect!

A fun little side not about the shower is that it was actually held at my new house I bought last year.  Carissa did a beautiful job with the flowers & Courtney’s little accents along the way were so much fun.

I had so much fun using some of the pieces from Sweet & Saucy Supply for the shower.  The colorful stands are such a great pop of color on the table.

I had so much fun setting up the desserts on my new vintage dresser I found at the LA Flea Market!  We made a small ruffle cake with a fondant bow tie accent, french macaroons, cake lollipops, mini cupcakes, and of course some bow tie sugar cookies.

Modern, Fun Wedding!

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

Well I am back safe & sound from Italy…I had the most amazing time there and will share more with you soon, but first I thought I would feature one of my favorite weddings from last year that I’ve been dying to show you.  I once again got to work with a fabulous dream team of other vendors, with my dear friend Jesi, from Jesi Haack Weddings at the helm.  Below Jesi describes the fun & unique elements that made this wedding one of a kind!

Jesi says….

“Alicia & Scott are hilarious!  Scott is one of the writers for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, so of course they wanted their wedding to portray their awesome sense of humor.  They also have the BEST story of how they got together.  Scott is known for his well manicured beard.  Alicia is known for exceptionally large (yet beautiful) teeth.  Sooooo, we took that and with the help from Karrie Pyke Designs and Posh Paperie, made that the apex of our design.  It was my most favorite element.  The rest just fell in to place, especially with the clean, crisp style of Carissa from JL Designs.  She spray painted succulents white!!  WHAT??  They realized my *not so secret* dream with their 1st dance to my all time favorite song, “Glory of Love” by Peter Cetera.  AND Scott’s dancing in his scuba gear.  And who freaking better to capture the entire thing???  Max Wanger.  Done Deal.  Enjoy their story.”

I had such a great time setting up this dessert display!  I loved the modern, clean look to it and the color scheme is definitely right up my ally!  Jesi made the most amazing backdrop for me and I couldn’t of been happier with it!  This was the first time we made a white succulent sugar flower too and I have to say it is one of my favorites now!

Rustic Dream Wedding

Monday, December 20th, 2010

I am so excited to share these gorgeous photos with you from Wildflowers Photography!  When I saw them for the first time I was completely in love with every detail from this wedding.  Hayley and I both happen to know the bride, Whitney, from high school so it was such a joy to get to be a part of her wedding day!  I think they designed every aspect of this wedding brilliantly and I hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I do!
