We threw this photo shoot together pretty fast, and the sun was setting so we really hurried. I grabbed some "snow" from Michaels to try and get that winter effect and Naphtali stood on the table throwing snow at Rachel. Next time we'll plan a little more, but we still had a fun time!
And we did eat the cake - but not like that. It was just a funfetti cake mix, but I love love them!! Those little letters are from Michaels too.
My cute little niece did not feel like having her picture taken.

I opted to do a hand wired bridal bouquet as my final project for design school. (I was really hoping there would be snow on the ground for the pictures but, even though it was cold enough for snow, there wasn't any. C'est la vie.) To add some glamour and shine I criss-crossed wire over the tops. The bouquet featured ranunculus, lisianthus, hypercium, oregonoia, freesia, and feathers. I've got some more pictures from our little photo shoot that I'll post tomorrow. (Thanks to my sister-in-law, Naphtali, for styling help and my friend, Rachel, for modeling!)

wand for the flower girl. I'm a fan or real flowers but for little girls, these are fantastic. They can use them at the rehearsal, wave them around, drag them on the ground and they'll still look great! Just make sure to use full headed flowers without a center (daffodils, lilies) that give them away as fake. Carnations, mums, and peonies work great.

Daniel Foucachon sent over some pictures of Annike and Jonathan's wedding! I haven't had a chance to go through all of them yet, but this one caught my eye. So sweet. These flowers were so fun to do - so vibrant! More to come!

I stumbled across this on Pinterest the other day and, really, what hasn't Disney done?! At least they're not the Disney princesses actual dresses. Although, if brides have dressed up as Shrek for their wedding, I'm sure some have been Belle or, I shudder to think, Ariel. These gowns are designed by Alfred Angelo and are influenced by the respective princess. Much better. Still, going all Disney for your wedding?? My two year old niece would go nuts. Can you guess which dress and ring go with which princess?
