We had an absolute blast designing and running SnL’s photo booth at their (GORGEOUS) wedding this weekend. As one of the many amazing things we were able to participate in, we want to share with you here just how blessed we are for this opportunity. Take a link!
My oh my, has it been awhile! It goes without saying that we have things to catch up on.
First, however, I would like to point out that we are halfway through the week before the wedding, and it couldn’t be going any better! This couple is one of the most dynamic I’ve come across in life. Without their vision and unity as a team this whole production wouldn’t be the same. It has been a blessing to have worked with them…and we haven’t even made it to the weekend!! Stupac and Linda (nicknames) have lovingly thought out a weekend of R&R for their loved ones, and have really set the bar for weekend weddings. Just. You. Wait.
This is a little behind-the-scenes peek at what we’ve been up to, we gathered a few friends to score and fold favors, and might I say we owned! I love bridesmaids and groomsman that ban together the weeks before, while simultaneously representing the “party” in Bridal Party! Thats love right there.
I’m off to run errands, thanks for your patience, and your enthusiasm.
As I have been reading fashion blogs, one trend that keeps popping up (and that I am sure I will be investing in soon) is the bubble necklace trend. These fun necklaces are characterized by larger beads that are set in a cascading pattern. J. Crew has featured this style of necklace for a while now, but you can find similar versions all over the internet. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites to share with you!
The reason why these necklaces are perfect to pair with a wedding dress that has a simple bodice is because they provide a pop of color. Depending on the length of the necklace it can highlight your collar bones or it can unite your decolletage and your dress. Because these neckaces have a repeating pattern, the visual weight they carry is significant. They will fantastic with a sweetheart neckline As a result, this single piece of jewelry makes such a fun statement that can be restated with a variety of different outfits after your wedding!
Sitting here giggling because we still haven’t broken 100 as far as Facebook friends are concerned! That 99 is just sitting there, so patiently! 😉 Maybe this weekend we’ll be able to convince that last friend to “Like” our page…. just maybe….. 😉
On rainy days like this its always a good idea to look to the beautiful, green, lush days ahead. All the wet and grey will one day lift, leaving us with something beautiful. Spring.
This may be a little early but my sights are already set on the pretty posies and sunny afternoons of springtime. Naturally, this daydream wouldn’t be complete without a litte garden-party-pretty; so here it is!
The garden party theme is one that has been around since the beginning of beautiful weddings…and for a reason! Depending on where you live, the colors and flowers you choose, and when you’re throwing your affair, the outcome can be completely yours!
Its a theme that is founded on your florals and textiles, so start there. If you base your invitations, colors, and patterns off of your favorite garden rose, you won’t have to look further than your own backyard for inspiration! Next decide if you’re inviting guests to a formal high tea, or a humble backyard afternoon affair. Stick to the classics with your sweets and drinks, using them to compliment your color palette (while pleasing your guest’s palettes 🙂 Once you’ve decided where you’re coming from, it won’t be hard to figure out exactly where the rest should go!
Whether you’re dreaming of sunnier days like us, or are thinking forward to your springtime events, look to nature for your inspiration, and let the pretty speak for itself!
It all started with a little bit of confetti. And the worlds cutest couple. And New Year’s Eve. Anyways, we were in a party mood and Stuart and Lindsay were the perfect excuse to celebrate!
The theme for this party was color based – bright red, aqua blue and gold. This foundation provided all kinds of inspiration. Our foods of choices reflected these colors and were the ever-delicious hot tamales, caramel corn, peanuts and cupcakes courtesy of Cakes by Design!
We also incorporated these colors into our signature champagne punch through the use of blueberries and cranberries.
What party is complete without a photobooth??? We used hand-made wooden props to create hipster-esque photos. The backdrop itself was straightforward – tinsel garland and strips of fabric looped over string. It added some visual interest to the otherwise simple brick wall!
We personalized the party by displaying some of Stuart and Lindsay’s favorite photos of each other, signage that told the world what the couple loved about each other and by creating a custom playlist based on their favorite songs. Another fun way that we were able to honor the couple was through the creation of our very own hashtag for the event. Such a simple, yet fun, way to share the couple’s personality!
The end result was a super fun bash at our very Jacque’s house that ended with a dance party!!!
To tell the truth, this is a party that you could throw as well!!! Simple design elements, such as repeating fonts and colors, are an easy way to create a party that makes sense aesthetically.
Another trick we discovered was a fun way to incorporate our desktop computer into the party. We set the screensaver to show pictures of our couple. It took no time at all, yet had a huge visual impact!
Thanks so much to Stuart, Lindsay and their friends for making this a night to remember!!!!
