SWEET BACKYARD VOWAL RENEWAL…

What is more beautiful than two people in love? How about two people proclaiming that love AGAIN in front of their family and friends with their three gorgeous children by their side? On a sunny fall afternoon we were blessed to witness Dan & Melissa Conway’s such love. And of course we just HAD to share this sneak peek!

Together with the fabulous Brooke Ringdahl Photography, Studio B Floral, Paper Thick Ink, Simply Modern, Little Dreamers Tutus and Apres Party Rental, we created the perfect backyard affair for the Conway’s to share with their guests.

THE BEGINNINGS OF A PLAYHOUSE…

What do you get when you add some delicate blush paint, a shimmery gold chevron accent wall and Queen Anne vintage furniture, why simply loves wedding & design’s FIRST office of course!!!! :) That’s right, we did it! We took the plunge and decided that the next logical step for our business should be to rent an office {ekkkk}. Or, as the hubby likes to call it, “a playhouse.” :) So now that we have the beginnings of our new home underway {with much much more work left to do}, it’s time to get down to business planning some fabuously gorgeous I do’s! Which we will definitely enjoy even more from our new “playhouse!”

SOOOO NOT A BLOGGER!!!

So, I started this blog with every intention in the world to become amazing at it! I read other blogs day and night and I think, “I could totally do this!”. WRONG! I am a HORRIBLE BLOGGER! The purpose of this blog is to help me communicate and show potentional brides, fiance’s, family and friends just what we can do to make their special day completely stress free and absolutey amazing, yet I seem to forget to update it with pictures of our work! So, a blogger I am not! This I have learned. What I do know is that I’m a wedding planner, and not to toot my own horn (well maybe just one toot!), a pretty darn great one at that! And I would love to sit here and promise that I will post images upon images of our weddings, but I probbaly won’t. So, this blog is growing up and becoming an official website!!!!! YIPPPPEEEE!!! I will still keep the blog once the website is launched with again the hopes that one day I’ll become this amaizng blogger, but until then, at least future couples will be able enjoy some of our favorite moments from our creative and delightfully designed weddings of this past year!

FIRST WEDDING FEATURE!!!

I don’t even know where to begin or how to express my complete and utter gratitude for my FIRST WEDDING FEATURE!!! I have been DYING to share all the glorious details of Sarah + Travis’s amazing wedding day from this past June, but of course I had to wait for the beyond talented ladies of the WEDDING CHICKS to do all the talking {click on the picture to learn more}… or should I say posting! he he… seriously, I’m literally delirious by this!! So, I’m going to stop and let you read for yourself!

And none of these memories would have been captured or featured if it wasn’t for the fabulous Brooke Ringdahl Photography! I am so grateful for having worked with such an amazing lady!

COLOR, TEXTURE AND PRINTS, OH MY!

Today I spent my lazy Saturday watching a marathon of my FAVORITE HGTV designer Sarah Richardson, who besides having amazing design style just happens to also a) be a fellow Canadian b) is a Gamma Phi Beta!! So clearly, that makes her all that more AH-MAZING!!

Along with her fashionable design sidekick Tommy Smythe, Sarah creates rooms filled with custom furnishings, soothing colors, bold patterns and tons of personality. I’m jealous of her ability to recognize potential in anything vintage, her talent for mixing patterns and well, basically every room that she creates!

Today’s marathon has caused me to slowly walk around my house in silence, evaluating how I can mix patterns and add rich textures into each room, trying to inject some Sarah style into my home! Unfortunately, my budget and Hubby’s patience isn’t quite as big, so for now I’ll have to settle with admiring some of my favorite Sarah Richardson rooms!
