Tom and Rachael

July 12, 2014

Simply put, I adore Tom and Rachael. These two compliment one another so well and are constantly working together as a team. Throughout the entire process of planning and designing their wedding, they were always so considerate of one anthers thoughts, opinions, and wants. Their vision for their wedding was absolutely gorgeous, a wedding designers dream. We were able to perfectly blend Rachael’s love of vintage romance with Tom’s cool modern taste. Add a killer rocking 80’s cover band and a surprise guest appearance, and you have a fabulous wedding for an amazing couple, even with the rain.

Mustache Party

June 20, 2014
Sometimes a girl just needs to throw a party (because apparently the girl, on her “down time,” needs to plan another event). It’s even better when the party involves mustaches. After scheming and planning with Tyson, cutting out a million mustaches, and realizing there aren’t a lot of foods that are black and white, I finally got to have a mustache.

Carolyn and Tom

May 10, 2014
Five years ago, I was given the honor of helping at Carolyn’s older sister’s wedding, so being a part of Carolyn’s wedding was extra special. With a color palate including the freshest sweet mint and the softest peach, off set with golden yellows, her entire wedding was swoon worthy. From the beautiful flowers, to the lace bridesmaids dress, to Carolyn’s to die for shoes, everything was so spot on. Did I mention her shoes? Peep toe wedges with laser cut details? I am still dreaming of them. Add some amazing vintage rentals from (my lovely friends at) Fancy Fray, a gorgeous blushing bride and her bird cage veil, and her dashingly handsome groom, you have a stunning wedding full of memories.

Katherine and Cole

November 9, 2013

Yes, this wedding was last November. But, better late than never. Besides, I couldn’t NOT blog about this lovely wedding and the amazing couple, Katherine and Cole. Fun fact: Katherine was my first bride to find me via social media. Simply put, I adore this couple. When I met Katherine, I immediately fell in love with her and her wedding. The art deco details, the gorgeous winter white blooms, the venue, sigh. Katherine, having her degree in Interior Design, had beautifully and flawlessly designed amazing details. With her and Cole’s love of Detroit, they made sure to even import a few details honoring their love of Motor City. There was even a surprise visit from Sparty to start off the dancing. Katherine and Cole, it was such an honor to be a part of your wedding. Congratulations and all my love!
