Pantone says to go green for 2013!

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Every December, a color of the year to come is named by Pantone…the authority on all things color related.  This year, the chosen color is Emerald Green.  They describe the color as “Lively.  Radiant.  Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”

I have to be honest, initially I wasn’t thrilled by this tone.  However…the more I look at it, the more I like it.  Emerald is a very flattering color (lucky bridesmaids!), and looks crisp and clean against whites, or rich and elegant with other jewel tones.  There is so much you can do with it, and it can certainly make a statement.

What do YOU think??  Do you remember what Pantone named as 2012′s color?  Click here to find out!

Icelandic Inspiration

Monday, April 2nd, 2012


Last week some of my college girlfriends and I had a crazy idea for a girls trip and went to Reykjavik, Iceland for an extended weekend.  We had the BEST time and while we were there, checked out some darling shops and boutiques.  One of our favorites had a great display of tea cups and really made me want to style a wedding or event after the look.  How fun to have a bridal tea or luncheon with this gorgeous china?

Other than shopping, we had a great time exploring the town, hiking a glacier, enjoying the geothermal hot springs and of course…exploring the nightlife.

Keep Iceland on your radar for a fun and unique vacation adventure!

Words to live by…

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

If you haven’t yet experienced the virtual pin-board, Pinterest, yet…I urge you to check it out!  It is an amazing way to organize all the beautiful photos you find online and arrange them in defined categories.  You can easily share your images with friends or even give a few different people access to pin images onto the same board.

I have a board called “Words To Live By” where I keep inspirational quotes and a few words of wisdom that just crack me up.  I came by the wise words below from Audrey Hepburn and just had to share it with you.

For more inspirational photos and fun quotes, follow my Pinterest page!  You may need an invitation to join, so just let me know and I will happily take care of you!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Wishing you and yours a very happy St. Patrick’s Day! I will leave you with one of my favorite Irish blessings (which is a GREAT addition to a wedding toast)…

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Jennifer + Mike’s wedding featured on Style Me Pretty!

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Style Me Pretty is (in my opinion) easily one of the best wedding blogs out there today.  They regularly add new posts featuring amazing weddings, darling engagement sessions and great details.  The posts are always very detailed and include fabulous photos that really make you drool. 

 A great resource on Style Me Pretty’s website is The Little Black Book.  It is a state by state guide to a group of hand-picked wedding professionals that the site’s staff consider the best of the best.  We are beyond honored to be a part of of the Little Black Book and also to have had a few weddings recently featured on the blog!

A few days ago,  Style Me Pretty featured Jennifer + Mike’s urban wedding with a Persian twist !  Jennifer & Mike had a fabulous fall wedding that began with an intimate traditional Persian ceremony at the home of the bride’s parents followed by a blowout reception at Pure Space.   Jennifer was a dream bride—she has a really fun personality and came to us with good idea of what she wanted, but didn’t know how to pull it all together.  We took her colors (turquoise, fuchsia and eggplant), added a peacock feather motif and planned a wedding that none of her guests will soon forget.

From the welcome baskets to the place settings, to the cutting cake, little pieces of the Peacock theme were incorporated throughout.  (Peacock is also symbolic for Persians because the Peacock Throne is the name of the throne used by former Persian Kings.)

The wedding was absolutely stunning, and Style Me Pretty did a great job showing off all of the amazing elements.  Click here for the full gallery of images!

Plum + Slate + Apple Inspiration Boards

Friday, March 11th, 2011

This last fall I worked with a great couple, Nicole & Shawn, on a fabulous urban wedding with an Asian accent.  We worked on a design scheme that would make everyone happy—a little dose of plum for Nicole and nothing too girly for Shawn.  Check out our two inspiration boards and I will post photos from this amazing wedding next so you can see how we pulled it all together!
