    Aaah! This darling, whimsical wedding just makes me smile! Mix a super cute and creative couple, with California's amazing event company Carter and Cook, throw in the best floral designers and photographers, and you have the most remarkable celebration! Oh, and did I mention it has the cutest theme ever: Up, up and away!
    The Bridesmaids all wore Anthropologie dresses and carried heart-shaped balloons down the aisle in lieu of bouquets. So clever!
    This is such a darling shot!The couple had a candy buffet along with a sweets buffet with Red Velvet cupcakes and colorful hot air balloon cookies
    The groom handmade an adoarble hot air balloon pinata which hung from one of the many fabric pendants that adorned the venue.

  • Dan and Joy's Spring Wedding

    Over the weekend I had the pleasure of traveling to Houston for my husband's cousin's wedding. It was an unexpectedly cold Spring day with temperatures in the 40's, but luckily everything was indoors and turned out just beautiful!
    The five bridesmaids wore dresses all made from the same fabric but styled to fit their own tastes. I love this idea and the result was stunning!
    The couple had their ceremony in the beautiful LDS temple and a ring ceremony at Champions Golf Club.
    My favorite part of the wedding was the Chinese Tea Ceremony. The Tea Ceremony is traditional practice used to introduce the newlyweds to each other's family, and is a way for the couple to show respect and appreciation to their parents. The newlyweds bow in front of their parents, serving tea to both side of parents, as well as elder close relatives. Parents give their words of blessing and gifts to the newlyweds in a red envelope. It was so heartfelt and fun to watch. Fun fun times!

    Adorable and oh so yummy!

    Peaches N' Cream

    This peaches & cream birthday party that Jessica Levitt designed for her daughter's fifth birthday party is so jam packed with fresh colors and yummy details that I had to share it! I also think many of these adorable details could totally work for an outdoor, farm inspired wedding. Farm baskets with peach patterned fabric liners were used for guests to pick fresh peaches. Pre-filled baskets of peaches would be the sweetest wedding favor!!
    These days, when pratically any space can be transformed into an instant perfect wedding venue, a farm could be just the ticket for a spring wedding. Alstede Farm served as the backdrop for this event.Fabric punting is always a sweet decor choice! And of course a delicious spread goodies, tasty to the eye and tummy!

    Inspired yet?
