Look at those legs! Kelly + Chris are the definition of cute couple......

Congrats you two! We're looking forward to more sunny skies on your big day in May!

Merrily Merrily Merrily...Brittany & Scott's inspiration

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

We never get tired of a nautical inspired wedding- there are just so many different combinations and elements to play with when working with this concept! Brittany was really excited to offer her ideas and together we created a playful, yet romantic sailing theme. We decided on a color palette of rustic brown, dreamy ocean blue, with pops of orange and coral. Incorporating anchors, lanterns and of course a sail or two! Can't wait to see everything come together on their New Year's Eve nuptials!

We've got big plans for New Year's this year-- this adorable couple's wedding!

Planning their wedding has been a dream! Brittany is such a cutie and has been a joy to work with! We have not had the pleasure of meeting Scott yet but are so excited to; he looks so handsome in all of these photos!

Check these two out! Quite the modeling pros....

John from Iris & Light did an amazing job capturing these sweet moments between the couple. Looking forward to having him there on the big day!

Congratulations Britt & Scott! We can't wait to ring in the New Year with you at your seaside wedding!

Puppy Love: Nicole + Christian

Thursday, December 2, 2010

We indeed stuffed ourselves last week-- but we hope everyone else saved room for some eye candy because that is exactly what we are serving up today!! Nicole and Christian have to be one of the sweetest couples we have worked with to date and their October wedding was nothing short of fabulous!

Can't get over how stunning Nicole looks in every shot. She is simply glowing! The Youngrens did a phenomenal job capturing these intimate images...

Show- stopping bouquet and florals from the lovely Leigh Anne over at the Floral Lab! We loved working with her and seeing her style mesh with ours. The flowers were a mix of succulents, tulips, anemones, roses, dahlias and more- so stylish and gorgeous!

From our first meeting with Nicole & Christian, two things were apparent; their love for each other and their love for dogs! We couldn't resist infusing a little puppy love into their wedding. We got lucky that the couple was game to add such fun elements in the big day!

We had so much fun putting this project together! In lieu of a traditional escort card table we incorporated the couple's love of dogs, and hung individual dog tags for each guest under their assigned table, which of course were also named after breeds of dogs!

Revolving an entire wedding around dogs could easily go in the wrong direction, but we made sure to approach the theme delicately as to not go overboard. We mixed whimsical, Anthropologie inspired graphics with sophisticated table linens in slate and lavender. Brightly Designed did a fantastic job capturing our vision and translating it perfectly into the paper elements.

Being the sweethearts that they are, Nicole and Christian opted to forgo favors and instead donated to the American Cancer Society. Each guest arrived at their seat to find a purple dog bone, which read " We'd love to throw you a bone, but we chose to donate to the American Cancer Society in your name."

We enjoyed picking out the perfect shades of purple candies to incorporate into this custom candy bar! There was even little licorice scottie dogs! The lovely doggie plates that were mounted onto the backdrop were a major inspiration throughout the wedding. We placed touches of the cheery aqua here and there, as well as fashioning most of the paper elements around the graphics on the plate.

Little "doggie bags" with custom labels were provided for guests to take home some of the delicious sweets.

Even more sugary goodness! The sweet looking cake and cupcakes, adorned with tiny lavender florets, were all from Elaine and her stellar staff over at Sweet Cheeks. Of course it was beyond delicious, we wouldn't expect anything less from these ladies!

Absolutely love the purple uplighting; it really set the mood for dancing : ) Tim Altbaum Productions did a great job DJing and getting everyone out on the dance floor!

Might of had a little fun of our own at the candy station!

So glad we got the chance to meet & plan this adorable couple's wedding! Nicole & Christian, we wish you endless years of happiness!
