not just any wedding shoes...

my daughter often inspires me to think beyond the ordinary, as she did with wedding shoes. gone are the days of the generic white 'wedding' shoes...yep, i love this. the brides shoes are now part of the unveiling, along with the garter. no rules, just a reflection of the inner joy of the day. (check out kendall's fabulous "betsy johnson's" in the upper right corner)

thinking outside the stick

never settle for the ordinary! gone are the numbers on a stick, really, why do what is expected? take your theme and think outside the 'stick', if your theme is organic then write your numbers on rocks. if your theme is a woodsy garden, then, use a little nest and twigs. if you have a digital camera, go around your area and take pictures of house numbers and print them out. numbers or names on wine bottles serve a duel purpose. my daughter and her groom named their tables after their favorite surf spots in our area. i always love hearing your ideas!

the "new" something blue...

the new soft blue/silver tones with black vintage accents are my new favorite.
i like to recommend to my clients to find an inspiration and build on it.
it could be something simple as a flower or a vintage postcard.

thanks to "ritzybee" for the inspiration board
