Shoe BLING!

Two of my favorite things are killer shoes & funky jewelry.  I found a creative genius who combines the two.  She's on etsy.com & her store name is "sofisticata."

You can use these on any of your shoes and feel like you have a brand new pair, plus they're removable which means you can use them on various pairs of shoes.  Your closet will love you.

These are perfect for the bride who wants to wear fun shoes.

Winter Wonderland - Styled Shoot

My friend & photographer, Elizabeth Glessner, and I have been at it again.  This time with a Winter Wonderland Styled Wedding.  Below are some of our pics at Lillie Belle's in Franklin.


I did some floating candles in water & faux candles underneath the flowers to make them glow.

Dessert Tables replacing the big CAKE

Some people like to stick with traditions and then there's me.  Although I find wedding cakes to be absolutely gorgeous I love the idea of having something for everyone.  Some people don't like cake.  I typically don't like frosting.  I think we'll start to see a trend in weddings that offer all kinds of desserts.

Think candy buffet but with all kinds of pastries.  Below is what I would offer for a Winter Wedding Dessert table.

First up: Canolli  (canollo is singular, canolli is more than one)

And yes, I'd offer variety amidst the variety with some dipped in chocolate, others with chocolate chips in the filling, and the traditional pistachio kissed.


Next up:  Ricotta Pie (this dessert is GLORIOUS on the tastebuds)....Mike's Pastry box in the background (North End, Boston) DELISH!



Coconut Macaroons:



These can also be dipped in chocolate.


I am loving that my favorite desserts are all perfect for Winter Weddings!  NEXT.....


Some might say it lacks a certain "class" but if the rest of it is done right and it's not the only thing you're offering, why not?  Boston Cream Donuts.  YES!



You could even sprinkle some snowflakes, etc on top.  These are made of heaven & chocolate.  Pic from http://www.halfthesugarbowl.com/.

POUND CAKE:

PUDDING!!!  Chocolate AND Vanilla.

from Marthastewart.com

Cover some oreo cookies in chocolate and throw a snowflake on top or these red hearts (would work well with a Christmas Red & Green Wedding) or dip some in white chocolate:


Aaaaaaand this is a lot of dessert so before I go crazy I'd also add some smores & whoopie pies.  NOM NOM NOM

10.15.11 - Southern CHIC at Belle Meade Plantation

We're still waiting on the detail shots from this wedding but we plucked these from our bride's blog.  CHIC did month-of plus design and all the flowers for this wedding:

There should be some coming with cowboy boots as well!





LOVE this picture


The sweetheart table:


Our beautiful bride despised this little guy.  It makes me laugh just thinking about it.  He was an unwanted guest.  The solution?  Decorate him:


Adorable:


These were a HUGE hit on the dance floor moments earlier:
