I had visions of ribbon and fabric strips hanging everywhere at the wedding but alas it was just one of those little details that had to be cut from the (very) long list of projects (and it totally didn’t matter in the end…more on that later). Still, when I see photos of bright, colorful streaks of color flowing in the wind I feel a tinge of remorse. It really can be such an easy and inexpensive way to brighten up a ceremony or reception space! You wouldn’t need to do much else (and too much more would be too much, ya know). I am looking forward to implementing this project in the future…if anyone wants to let me give it a go just holler!

Hi y’all. Just wanted to let you know that I am back from the wedding. It was kind of totally awesome. I am still processing everything that happened. I’m not ready for it to be over but I’m ready to get started on all the other weddings and events that are in the works!

I got to design and plan a baby shower yesterday. It was pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. And teeny tiny baby clothes are the most adorable things I have ever seen!

    um, that is SUCH a great idea, never seen it before, totally witty and fun!

    sidenote: love her dress.


I absolutely love love love this story. I get chills every time I think about it because I’m a big, sissy, romantic. We were hanging out with Aimee and Dorian and I was telling Aimee about the Disney World couple and she hit me with an even CRAZIER story about her and Dorian. Turns out, they were actually both born in the same hospital in Colorado and lived three streets away from each other growing up yet neither they nor their families knew each other. THEN both set of families moved to Florida and they lived 10 streets away from each other. Still they did not meet. It wasn’t until they both went BACK to CO to visit did they finally meet and realize that fate had been trying to push them together their entire lives!
Anyone else have a crazy, twist-of-fate, story like that about you and your true love?

    omg that is TOO sweet!!!! CRAZY story and dorian!! my husband and i grew up only two streets over from each other, but didn't know it until YEARS later – after he moved to and back from st. louis.

    awww love 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Emilia Jane - June 14, 2010 - 3:45 pm

    ok that is just crazy! i love stories like that. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Aimee Westcott - June 16, 2010 - 9:26 am

    I think the anchor steams may of made me leave out part of the story we did meet and became friends in florida but did not start dating until colorado..Dorian laid on top of me until I kissed him…quite the tenacious guy!!
    drinks before you go…maybe?ReplyCancel

  • Lindsay - June 16, 2010 - 10:02 am

    Well, my story isn't quite as crazy but…My guy and I both grew up an hour from Boston in different directions. Somehow we ended up at the same college in Virginia in the same major program. We became acquainted in class but that was it. I graduated before him and asked for his number just because I had a summer job near his home. But I never called because I knew he had a girlfriend. I moved out west for a while but got another job near where he grew up 2 years later. During my interview my soon to be boss asked if I knew him because he was working there and she saw that we had gone to the same college – for some reason I blushed even though I had barely known him! So we reconnected, started dating, and are now engaged after 4 solid years. Woo hoo!ReplyCancel

Inspired Creations Contest

I created this little California gypsy-inspired board for our photo shoot.

PS: I don’t know why my picture credits keep getting all wonky but the bottom right photo is actually from the Bash, Please shoot at Once Wed. I need to give those girls the proper recognition because they inspire me every day!

    Beautiful colors!ReplyCancel

Our friends Aimee and Dorian were sweet enough to step out from behind the camera to model for the first half of our shoot. I am so happy to have met these two. They have such beautiful spirits and are so completely in love it is ridiculous (they have known each other 18 years, been dating 9, and married 2)! I love their story and I love them. Thank you so much for being a part of this!
