eclectic wedding on Martha Stewart

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Martha Stewart loved this eclectic wedding!  Chris and Abby personalized so many details, all set against the backdrop of The Plant at Kyle.  Created by Lake | Flato architects, a tribute to Texas shed vernacular.

Cool things to do at an Indian Fusion wedding

Monday, January 25th, 2016

I always look forward to Indian Fusion weddings.  Snippet & Ink agrees, as they are featuring Shalou and Eric’s fun and colorful wedding today.

Austin's Minor Mishap Marching Band at Indian wedding

It was a 13 hour day, with two ceremonies.  My favorite parts were Eric riding in on a white horse during the baraat.  He totally rocked it as his friends and family danced to dholi drummers and also the Minor Mishap Marching Band.  Great mashup of culture!

a lavender wedding theme

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Vision Events Studio are amazing event stylists and planners in Chicago (one of my favorite cities!), so what a pleasant surprise that they selected one of our images to be part of their feature on wedding centerpieces. If you are looking for lavender wedding ideas without going all out purple, this is a beautiful example! Confession…I had an all purple bedroom when I was in middle school, with the piece de resistance being the tiered ombre lavender to purple bedspread.  A few years I later got rid of everything…except the bedspread!

Thanks to Yasmin of Floral Theory in San Francisco for creating such beautiful flower arrangements for this wedding in California Wine Country.
