Tuesday, February 22, 2011

We can't tell you how excited we were when Alicia + Aaron shared their engagements with us this past week-- it was a wonderful Valentine's surprise!! We are in love with every shot that Trever Hoehne captured of the two. We just want to jump right in them and bathe in all of that glorious sunlight!

Look how sweet these two are!! We've had such a ball planning their upcoming April wedding! We absolutely love that they decided to take their engagements at the Crystal Cove Cottages- what a fun idea!

Did you notice all of the lovely shades of blue? Expect to see a whole lot more of 'em at the Leo Carrillo wedding!

Absolutely adore this last picture! Alicia looks so darn gorgeous and Aaron looks awfully sweet himself! Stay tuned to see the inspiration for their upcoming Spring wedding!

Happy Valentine's Day!! Fun last minute ways to tell him you Love him

Sunday, February 13, 2011
Alright, you're reading this on Valentine's day and you still don't have a gift for your honey! What to do!? Well, we made it easy for you and compiled a list of inexpensive and cute (a little cheesy- but only in the best way!) gifts that you can pick up in a pinch!

1. "I only have eyes for you..." pick up a pair of sunglasses and slap this sweet saying on the card
2. What every really guy wants...some great sox....yup we said it!
3. The quintesential V-day gift...a mix CD! Simply write "your love is like music to my ears" on the freshly burned disc
4."You're a cut above..." let your guy know you appreciate him with a razor and these four words
5. Grab him a puzzle and let him know how you really feel... "You complete me!"
6. Let him know you always have his back with a loofah or back scratcher this year
7. If he's a big golfer, give him some golf balls and tell him he's your hole in one
8. Who doesn't love cheesy boxers? We think the best are animal print ones so you can tell him "you bring out my wild side"
9. Tell him what's really on your mind..."you light my fire," when you hand over a kitschy lighter
10. You could always use a fun and snazzy tie to let him know "you can knot live without him"
11. Every guy likes to hear that he's hot, but just how hot is he? " Too hot to handle," hence the oven mitt!
12. Y'know what else men like for gifts...FOOD! Couldn't resist a bucket of KFC with this super cute saying "I love you more than biscuits and gravy!"
13. Want to give something a little sweeter? How about a delicious and wholesome muffin with a handwritten note that reads "there's muffin I love more than you!"

Okay, so if you're like us and are missing Bridalplasty (we know it's horrible to admit!!!) then there is something you can do to fill the void!

The Wedding Salon has just announced our first Wedding Bootcamp in Los Angeles for 2011! The event will take place on March 1st at Hansen’s Cakes (Tori Spelling’s favorite).

Then comes baby......

All of us around the office are a little baby crazy at the moment, since we're looking forward to the arrival of baby number three with great anticipation!!! We were sent these ridiculously adorable shots, that a very imaginative mom captured, and we couldn't resist posting them. You must check out her blog! She is a computer specialist originally from Finland, who creates a wonderful imaginary world, out of whatever she can find around her daughter, all while the little girl sleeps.

Soooooo cute! I can't take it!!

This last one is my favorite! I don't know why, it just cracks me up-- must be her little hand!

Hope you all enjoyed these as much as we did! Can't wait till Heather welcomes her new bundle of joy into the world this weekend!
