Summerhill beauty

July 9, 2010

So this blogging thing is not working out for me. I think it has something to do with the 18 hour days, the 6 year old that seems to have taken over my house with her ‘larger then life’ personality, (what can I say, she takes after me. lol) and that thing called ‘eating’ that i so dearly love. Foooooooood. *drool*

Anyway, I’ve had these photos for way too long without posting a blog. I’m not going to lie. I feel guilty about it. So I suppose the first order of business is to A. Thank Adrian Photography for being so fantastic at getting these to us so fast and B. Offer my apologies for being so lame at getting them on the blog. It won’t happen again. Ok, lets be realistic… it may. I’m doing my best here people.

Ok, so this one I titled “Summerhill beauty” because it took place at, you guessed it, Summerhill Winery. It was such a perfect day for this wedding and I was in love with the simplicity of it and how the colors jumped off the table. And of course… (drum roll) … the stationary. Fantastic stationary for which I can’t take all the credit. The brides brother happens to be a stationary genius and designed her invitation so I got to steal the design and create all the day of stationary around it. It was bliss for me.

And how could I forget… the bouquet. The greatest thing about this bouquet is the brooches amongst the flowers. I love it because it was one of our mock weddings that inspired her to add these little touches. (see mock wedding here) That kind of response is exactly what we were hoping for. Inspiration, its a crazy thing. Anyway, I love this one. Its a beauty for sure and the reason we started this business to begin with. We are both crazy about flowers and love getting to create each bouquet to compliment each bride perfectly. You be the judge…. but I think this one was a great fit. 🙂

Ranunculas … so perfect on their own. No need for fuss, just a pretty vase and a few stems and you have perfection. i love this one so much, I could frame it for my house if I had but one inch of space on these walls !

I SO enjoyed making these “table names”. What a fantastic idea. Each was a place they had been and under each place, a story. I honestly felt like they were my new best friends by the end of making these. I even managed to pick up a new tradition I would love to start. ( I’d tell you but then I’d have to … well, you know… it wouldn’t end well )

Stunning paper. Thanks to the bride who brought me a ‘bag of goodies’ and let me do whatever I wanted with them. 🙂

Great photography guys ! Thanks again to Adrian Photography for capturing this one so well. You guys are fantastic !

Congratulations Kirsten and Trevor ! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day. It really was an honor. All the best to the both of you !

If you want to see more pics of this beauty, venture over to our website and drool some more. I have to limit myself these days. Time is of the essence. Its my new plan. Lure you in with a few goodies and send you over to the website to see the rest. I think I’ll be more productive this way. Time will tell.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by.

Cheers,

*D*
