Working with Forever Vintage Rentals is a dream. We created a coffee bar! It is a great design piece to included in your big day as well as providing something for you guests! I love all of the design concepts out right now, but I really feel like everything needs to have a purpose. What goes with coffee…treat!

Emly and Alex are so sweet together. You can create so much for a shoot but not the connection the two of them have.

No guest can leave without taking a token to remember the special day. Baby redwoods were the favor in this day. To take, plant, love on and let love take root!

2013 Bridal  {hairstyles to swoon for}

2013 is here and so is the start to spring wedding season. With each new season we are introduced to the amazing creative work of  the upcoming looks designed by hairdressers everywhere. This season has has moved away from the overly tossled,, well played water fall braid and into a new look.

Easy breezy beautiful UpDo

We take a look at these amazingly romantic styles; soft swept curls, ballerina buns, chignons, and loosely laid French twist. All so delicately pined to perfection.

Retro Waves

At this years golden globes retro wave dominates the runway. This vintage look has major fancy factor while still allowing a bride to feel comfortable and in her own skin.
