Piper Perabo Wedding

So I am not a big fan of celeb weddings and I never feature them but I really LOVED the very cool dress that Piper Perabo wore at her New York Wedding this weekend.  Even though it was Michael Kors, I feel like it was very under stated and went well with the New Orleans theme.

Princess and the Pea Gone Mad

If a modern day Ballerina Princess went mad and found her Prince…this is what it would look like.  I just fell in LOVE with this session from KrisD Mauga there is something so moving from these images.  Happy Monday and Enjoy!

5 Personalized Wedding Day Essentials

Your wedding day only comes around once and what better way to remember such an amazing day than with personalized wedding essentials. There are so many options when it comes to personalizing your wedding day. Not only do personalized items add an extra special touch to your wedding day, they also add that special touch to your home when you display them afterwards. Here are some of our favorite personalized items for your wedding day.


Aisle Runner


You are guaranteed to make a dramatic entrance with a personalized aisle runner! Whether the aisles will be lined with florals or you are opting to have a more simple ceremony, a personalized aisle runner will be a stunning centerpiece at your ceremony.



Wedding Signature Frame



If you are looking for a alternative to a regular guest book, a personalized frame for guests to sign can be a great option. Unlike a guest book, you can hang up the frame in your living room and have the memory of your wedding on display every day.

Sand Ceremony Shadow Box


Sand ceremonies are a popular alternative to candle ceremonies. Rather than using a plain jar or container for your sand, why not use a personalized option that you can display in your home?

Cake Server and Knife


So many couples never use their cake server and knife after their wedding. How about personalizing yours and using it on special occasions? Using this set will make holidays even more special.

Embroidered Handkerchief


Someone will be shedding some tears of happiness on your wedding day. Having a few personalized handkerchief’s on hand is definitely a good idea!

Tasty Tuesday

We’re getting over the Monday blues, or mopey Monday as we so fondly call it. Hump day is just around the bend but we need a little something to help us celebrate getting through Monday. Thanks to the good folks at Smirnoff we have found our silver lining. Sorbet Light Pineapple Coconut Vodka. We’ve decided that Flamingoes and coconut are the new *IT* thing (please make the cold and never ending winter end). We also think that Smirnoff’s Sorbet Light Pineapple Coconut is a perfect for a Spring (no really where are you SPRING?!) cocktail hour or for a fun kick off to a bachelorette party. This vodka is smooth and as a bonus only 78 calories per 1.5 oz serving. We’re simple gals so we made a simply delicious martini with 1.5 oz of Smirnoff’s Sorbet Light Pineapple Coconut Vodka and 2 oz of coconut water (a lady must stay hydrated) in a chilled martini glass. Smirnoff was super awesome and sent us a ton of recipes. To quote police chief Brody from Jaws….We’re going to need a bigger glass. Ok he needed a boat but tomato, toMAHto. If you Pin, haha who doesn’t, check out Smirnoff’s Girls Night In for all their great recipes. Make sure to let us know in the comments your favorite recipe!

Perfectly Pink Plus a Cameo by Charlie Crist

Ashley and David had an AMAZING pink inspired wedding in St. Pete, FL. It started off early at the Renaissance Vinoy with the guys and gals getting ready. Ashley had a beautiful dress that was made from, well we’re guessing miles of organza it’s fluffy, full and faaaaaancy! Her girls were sporting black dresses with pink heels, which we of course absolutely love. The ceremony was held at Christ the King Catholic Church, then they celebrated back at the Vinoy. Where, yes, they ran into Charlie Crist and his amazingly always perfectly coiffed hair, he’s like Roger Sterling minus the cigarettes and booze.
