Lanie and Rick on our beloved Columbia Street!

I truly believe these two will live Happily Ever After!

I LOVE when bride's trust me.  Lanie, was a Dream to work with.  She wanted an intimate wedding for 50 that was glamorous and fun.  When corresponding with her I found a quote on her facebook page.  It said this....
I believe in pink. . . .I believe in kissing, kissing a lot . . . and I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. -Audrey Hepburn

This quote was the entire basis of my design.  I went for a 1950s vibe using black and white damask print accent with bright pink... 

Lanie wanted the reception in our studio and we were THRILLED to do it here.  The front end of the studio was were we set up for dinner.  Round tables were set up with black linens and white chiavari chairs and white napkins.  The dishware was white with silver pattern along the edge.  Pink stalk was set on the place settings for a pop of color.  Tall centerpieces to make a big statement, the square vessels with submerged orchids, with large arrangements of pink dutch hydrangeas, pink ranunculus, pink David Austin roses, spider mums.  
Bar and lounge were in the back of the studio.  The bar served beer and wine and of course a Pink signature drink, a pomegranate martini.  The centerpieces on the cocktail tables and lounge area as well as the bar were where smaller square vessels with either orchids, and pink stalk.  

Mike Dow rocked the evening away by playing great music and everyone danced the night away.  Rick was a SHOW stopper on the dance floor!!! I will NEVER hear "Footloose" again without thinking of him.  Guests besides dancing had a ball in a photo booth from Maine Photo Booth Company.  

It was a fabulous night.....I believe that Lanie was a happy girl and happy girls are the prettiest girls...

Great Decor Blog on Crates

One of my fabulous designer friends, Rachael Anderson, shared this blog post and I love it!  I have been using apple crates in my house for years!  As bookshelves, toy boxes, & even for holding diapers.  Crates are so versatile & completely shabby chic!  I use them in weddings as end tables in a lounge area.  Aisle markers or vessels to hold programs.  We even have a super cute vintage cracker crate to hold our soap in the studio.  Here are some super sweet ways to use crates, in your home & in your wedding...
