The Mohawk Bun

Monday, December 31, 2012

We are getting ready for the New Year and wanted to give you all a little gift. Here is a hair tutorial video that was put together with our readers in mind and is sure to please.  Not only would this hairstyle be perfect for a night out for New Year's Eve, but great for the daring bridesmaid as well! We like to call it the Mohawk Bun. The ever so talented Leslie Culbertson walks us through the steps, enjoy!
Happy New Year!

Real Wedding: Key To My Heart

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Jenna and Graham's love story has a sweet melody unlike any other.  Music hits the core of their souls and is what keeps them going everyday. Graham is a professional organist and musician while Jenna is a beautiful singer. This now wed couple met in a most romantic way, while making music together. With each having children of their own this wedding was about bringing two families together to compose their own song and journey.

When Jenna met Graham she felt as if she were living in a fairy tale and wanted to have pieces of that fairy tale show through on their special day. This wedding was a bit Renaissance inspired...alluding to a new birth of sorts within their newly formed family while also hinting to an era of enlightened art, music and culture. Beautiful paper elements were created by the always talented Cori at Brightly Designed letting guests know "today is a fairytale" and "our story begins..." Arched above them during their nuptials it read "and they lived happily ever after" along with an array of romantic garden roses, hydrangea and baby's breath created by Twigg Botanicals.

As the ceremony site was transformed into the reception area, guests sipped on a specialty drink appropriately named The Glass Slipper. Once they were ready to be seated they found their names connected with musical notes on an escort card wall we created to look like sheet music. The wall was symbolic of Jenna and Graham's new life together creating a symphony of sorts! Extravagantly flowing centerpieces  and crowns filled with soft colors popped atop tables with wintery highlights of deep blue and gold.  Pretty wrapped packages sat at each seat and appropriately held cd's of course, filled with all the couples favorites. 

Guests helped themselves to a tasty and decadent dessert table spred made by 24 carrots and styled by us here at Amorology.  Their gorgeous cake was fit for a royal family and the darling edible gold music note and crown  toppers on the cupcakes were just the perfect touch!  Everyone made their way over after dinner to our custom photo booth filled with music and a playful vintage piano, gathering in duets and trios before the night was done.

We Love LOVED how Beautifully captured their first look was at each other

We loved how Jenna thoughtfully wanted to include her little ones through out the events such as with the cake cutting...and how each of the children were reminded that it was also a special day for all of them.   As the night came to a close the happy couple were waved goodbye with dancing ribbons. 

We are thrilled to have been a part of Jenna and Graham's new beginning and wish them a happily ever after!  Thank you, Thank you too to Brandon Kidd Photography who never fails to disappoint with their gorgeous photography!  Loved spending the day with them as usual!
