Love is sweet!

Favors come in all shapes and sizes. I always think edibles make the most popular favors and A&G totally nailed it. 
Check out this adorable candy bar favor.
The list of ingredients is too adorable.

Another beautiful sweet treat from Cake Expressions!

Guests sign a puzzle piece so the bride and groom can think about all the wonderful guests who helped them celebrate, every time they play.

How do you plan to thank your guests for  joining you on your special day?

It's been too long...

Dear readers (if there's any of you still out there...) I am so sorry for the lack of recent posts. We have just been so busy lately, so many weddings, bridal fairs and preparation for "busy" season! So I just wanted to share a few of my favorite images from recent weddings. I promise I will be back soon with tips for you all. If there are any subjects you would like to see in the future, feel free to let me know. ��
Loved this dr. Seuss wedding!!!!

And this Google loving gamer wedding...

I think this is the cutest next day brunch idea I have seen.
Such a sweet couple

Finding love in California...
So glamorous! 

Great favors - wine glasses and candy. Combining something useful with edibles is a sure way to make your favor a hit!

And then today's wedding, what an amazing group, still rocking out after I left for the night! Congrats #bosko
The groom is a master mechanic... In case you were wondering about the tires etc...

Winter Wonderland???

Here in California, it is a little hard to believe that winter is happening. The weather is just great...

But elsewhere in the world, snowflakes and icicles abound. So here are some design ideas on fabulous and frosty winter weddings. Happy planning!

A white white white wedding, filled with glitzy candle light decorations! #winter #wedding #diyWinter Weddings - Winter Wedding Ceremony | Wedding Planning, Ideas & Etiquette | Bridal Guide MagazineUse dry branches to give this winter wedding a rustic an warm feeling.
Winter themed weddings are great for playing with mediums other than flowers. Branches and trees with white blossoms, lights or even just sprayed a playful color give a winter theme an added edge, bringing the outside in. 

You can have a lot of fun with color schemes at this time of year too. I love the traditional holiday colors of red and green, seeing how couples have used this palette without it feeling like they stole decorations from the Christmas tree! 

wow, almost your colors to a t - I like the simple chair tie -A Rustic Winter Wedding colour palette | onefabday.com

Cranberry and Gold Wedding, I'm a married woman now and my husband hates gold but this is beautiful

mint, gray, silver, and gold -- pretty winter wedding colors....i never would even think about having a winter wedding but this is adorable! and who wouldn't want a fur?!

But then you could also go with an icy blue...

What colors will you pick?

Baby shower!

Our banquet room isn't just the perfect place for a wedding, it's also an amazing location for a shower. 
We celebrated these soon to be parents this past weekend with a co-ed baseball themed party. They are huge Dodgers fans. I guess we can't all be Giants fans......

Love the cake by the wonderful Cake Expressions. Best lemon cake in the world! 

The proud parents to be.

Not soon enough! Hurry up Nolan, we can't wait to meet you!

New Year, New Trends....

Wedding Trends 2015

This article covers the newest trends for this coming wedding season. The most anticipated part of this article is of course Pantone's announcement of the color  of the year, Marsala Red. 

It looks as though we will be seeing a continuation of the rustic outdoors themes, even with a slight change towards western and leather, instead of burlap. So don't worry if you already had your rustic theme picked out, you can still be right on trend with a few adjustments. :)

It's nice to see that wedding apps are really making things easier, every little helps, right? 

Will you stick to trends for your wedding, or do you prefer to stand out from the crowd and start trends of your own?  I know I am excited to see what all of my clients do this year.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

At this time of year, when things slow down (a little), I can take the time to reflect on all of my wedding couples for the year, all the vendors I have the opportunity to work with and all the friends I have made through this wonderful career. I am so thankful for each and every one of you.So Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Have a great Thanksgiving.  :)

It's all Greek to me...(with a little southern thrown in)

I recently had the pleasure of working with a Greek groom and a southern bride on their very opulent wedding reception. 
I loved seeing the little details they each pulled from their respective cultures. I think the end results were amazing...

The bride loved gardenias and wanted to see them used liberally throughout the disign. Check out the individual gardenia topping each guests favor. The room smelled very exotic.

Bloomsters did a beautiful job with the event decor! 

And we had great fun putting the Greek pastry table together.

Thanks to Bloomsters and Elite Entertainment for their help in creating this amazing event!
