August is almost over so yet another busy summer comes to an end. I love August weddings for so many reasons and I can’t help but to show off one of my favorite August weddings held here a few years ago for Tracy & Nick. Tracy went above and beyond in putting love into the details and it showed! Her colors were purples and Black and we added chinese lanterns on everything (and I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!). Check out the amazing Guitar Hero groom’s cake! And don’t even get me started on how much I loved her florals done by our ever so talented in house florist Stacie with La Belle Fleur. Seeing it all come together so perfectly is always such a treat for me and even better is watching the couple as they get to sit back and enjoy their beautiful special day!!
August is approaching fast and it makes me reflect on one of my favorite August weddings… the wedding of Maria & Mark. The couple was from out of state so alot of the planning was done via telephone and email but they each had such a good eye for design, I knew with each choice they made that it would turn out amazing! Their color scheme was pear green with touches of gold/yellows. Very refreshing! The thing I loved the most? The groom totally took care of his bride. He wanted to make sure everything was as stress free on her so ended up making alot of decisions on the wedding, helped her get ready, and as you can tell in these pictures, his love for her just shined on his face when he saw her walk down that isle towards him. It’s moments like this that I will never forget and truly makes me love my job!!
It has been a busy summer and as I have been reflecting on pretty weddings, I can’t help but to think of one of my favorite weddings of all time here at The Canterbury Place held here a few years ago. The bride and groom were not only drop dead gorgeous but everything came together so beautifully. Her color scheme was champagnes & Ivory. At first she was worried it was too boring (we reassured her it would be very elegant) but as these pictures will prove, it was anything but! It turned out to be one of the prettiest weddings and I can’t help but to show it off again even after all this time. Enjoy….
Spring is upon us (hooray!) which makes me flash back to some of my favorite weddings of last year, one of them being the wedding of Kim & Dallin. They were truly such a FUN couple to plan with and I knew from the start they were going to have a FUN wedding! Every detail came together perfectly… they had a yellow and grey color scheme (so Fresh & Modern) which included all kinds of details from a hand carved cake topper from etsy, fun yellow flower and shoe details, and a thumb print guest book which the couple framed to hand on their wall. I am all about creativity and this couple nailed it! As usual, thanks to the ever so talented Chad with Faces Photography who captured the essence of their day perfectly. Their wedding was even featured in a national blog which you can check out… http://www.labellebride.com/2011/10/12/rustic-yellow-wedding-style/
Cake might seem like one of the simplest decisions when it comes to a wedding, but in reality, there is more to picking a cake than you’d expect. So, before you go to the consult where you’ll select the cake that will be intensely photographed, a focal of your décor, and the center of one of the oldest wedding traditions (no pressure), here are a few tips to help you prepare for this big decision.
