Happy Friday! Are you ready for today’s post? It’s our very own engagement shoot! Our engagement shoot was “Holi Festival” (or the Festival of Colors) Inspired.

I also found her choice of bouquet very stunning – very simple and […]

I have a soft spot for all things vintage, and I’m glad that we’ll be seeing a whole lot of vintage on this year’s weddings! First, there’s the 1920’s Great Gatsby glam wedding theme, then the English elegant vintage garden theme – and now, are you ready? Next on the list: Think rustic and vintage with lots of touches of elegance. What have you got? Ritzy Ranch! photo source: Bridal […]
Landing #1 on The Knot‘s top wedding themes for 2013, this outdoor formal theme is rich with elegant arrangements, lush floral decor, classic vintage and lace – all delicately placed in the heart of green manicured lawns. photo source: Hostess with the Mostess Think of lazy-afternoon tea themed parties with pastel colored pastries and tea served on china with gold appliques.
