~ A Sweet Treat ~

Nowadays there are so many ways to personalize your wedding and make it your own, and desserts are no exception. While there are beautiful cakes you can get it, some people have other favorite desserts they’d like to share with their guests and a dessert bar is a great way to do so. A dessert bar can be anything you want from a random selection of bite size treats to pies or more! You can do a pies, cookies, ice cream, doughnuts, even popcorn! The ideas are endless. So have some fun with it and pick what YOU like most, after all, it is YOUR day 😉

Flowers Everywhere!

Flowers are a huge part of not only a wedding, but any kind of event. They set the color tone and mood, and can be as bold or as simplistic as you like. Now, after saying this, I realize that choosing flowers can also be an overwhelming process. What color combination do I go with, how big, what flowers are in season? So many questions! My advice, find three or four pictures of floral arrangements that have different elements that you like and bring them to your florist meeting. Explain what you like about each arrangement and let them guide you with the best flower choices. This will help ensure you are getting the correct flowers for the season of your event (a.k.a. most bang for your buck) and they can help narrow down your vision into exactly what you are looking for.

Kristin & Rob {10-26-13}

There is so much to say about this wedding, but first I’d like to say how awesome this couple is. They are some of the most sincere and kindhearted people I’ve ever met. From the first time we met Kristin we were so smitten, and then we met Rob and Kristin’s amazing family and our love grew! Rob and Kristin were married by the delta on October 26, 2013 under big green billowing trees. Cocktail hour was held by the pond with delicious drinks and appetizers and a band playing in the background. The reception was held under a huge white tent with beautiful flowers and accent pieces of mint green, blush, and gold. Along with an amazing band holding down the party in the tent, there was a s’more station equipped with a roaring fire pit! Not only were we lucky to have such an amazing couple, but we also got to work with some amazing vendors as well. Bloomers Floral Design did the elegant flowers, there were a few great vendors that provided the beautiful decor rentals: Simple Country Weddings, Classic Party Rentals & Chandelier Girl. La Tavola Linen and Mimi & Co. provided the beautiful linens, La Bocca Fina served the delicious food, Galan Ducey was the brilliant photographer, Grape Video captured the day on video, Smoken J’s was the jammin’ band, and Freeport Bakery served up the scrumptious cake. The whole day went off without a hitch and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time celebrating the union of this sweet couple. Here is a little sneak peek from Kristin and Rob’s big day, enjoy!

Decor To Be Thankful For

I will admit, I will use any excuse to decorate…I don’t care what holiday or occasion it is. (And a holiday that combines decorating AND eating delicious food makes me one happy girl!) Thanksgiving is a perfect time to pull out the neutral rustic colors and add a bit of country living to your home.  A few pumpkins, pine cones, some old picture frames, a funny little saying on a chalkboard and you’re all set!
