Monogram vases in Hobby Lobby

Posted in Uncategorized

This is my first attempt at blogging from my iPhone. Now if this works the blogging world will be in trouble since that means we will be blogging from any and everywhere.

Since it is pretty easy to take pics with my phone I kinda use it as a photo album for ideas and store finds. The other day while in Hobby Lobby I found these awesome vases that can be used everywhere. Whether in your home, birthday party or decor during your cocktail hour with your new last intial. This will show your guests that you have thought about all the little details.

ellyb Events – Atlanta Occasions Second Cover Premiere Launch Party

Posted in Uncategorized

We are always honored to work with Heather Vreeland from Atlanta Occasions. Each and every event is unique with great decor, food, drinks and people! Another reason why we love working with Heather is that she allows our creative juices to flow. She tells us she wants a party and we deliver!

The party was held at the lovely Ventanas and was a mix of Brides and elite Atlanta Wedding Pros.

One of the cool features about Ventanas is that they have a helipad. Brides and Grooms can use this as they enter or exit their reception.aonightout-148

Connie Duglin linens provided these amazing coral taffeta crinkle linen which matched the color of the wording on the Atlanta Occasion cover.

Etsy Find – Wedding Genealogy

Posted in Uncategorized

Today we bring you a great Etsy find – Wedding genealogy.  Elana Dweck owner of Mélangerie Inc. sent us over some additional information on what Wedding Genealogy is and whey you need one!

Wedding genealogies are customized charts, similar to a family tree, that detail the relationships of the bride and groom to all of their wedding guests. Great for a cocktail hour or reception, these charts fill guests in on who’s a friend from childhood, a neighbor, a family member, and more. Couples can customize the chart best suited to the style and environment of their wedding, and keep the diagram afterwards as a unique piece of memorabilia.

What are your thoughts? Is this a keepsake you would like after the wedding is over? How would you incorporate it in your home?

Do It! Wear your Mother’s Wedding Gown

Posted in Uncategorized

Many years ago, brides would not think about wearing any other wedding gown but their Mother’s! Slowly that tradition changed into altering their gowns or using pieces of their gowns for creation of a new one. Now all elements of doing any of those things seem to be abolished.

I was completely taken back while viewing Ben Vigil’s latest slideshow from a recent wedding.  Here was a modern stylish bride getting married to prince charming, in HER MOTHER’S GOWN!  And it looked beautiful. Her pictures are now timeless and classic with an ode to her Mother (who Ben told me did the alterations for the beautiful bride).

The bride wore the gown through the ceremony and her formal portraits, but later changed into a funky reception dress complete with birdcage veil. It was the perfect conclusion


To see more images from this wedding please head over to Ben’s site. Here is the link for the slideshow.

Movie: Our Family Wedding

Posted in Uncategorized

We just love love wedding movies. There is always something to take away from these kind of movies. Whether it is humor about the big day, beautiful decor or just wonderful fashion, they are usually a must see.

Our Family Wedding does not look like they will disappoint. The movie is based upon the fusion of a Hispanic family with African American family. Since there are lot of funny men in this film we are sure it will be good times with a beautiful ending.  Isn’t with America Ferrera’s gown just beautiful?
