Here is a spring rehearsal dinner we did at the Rodin Museum for a really adorable couple. It was one of our favorite events we ever did! It turned out really beautiful and Rodin was a beautiful back drop for the event.

Set realistic goals for what you can afford for your wedding.

We worked with Peter Van Beever who was the photographer and responsible for the adorable print pieces for our summer wedding. They were a really fun twist on traditional paper pieces to accent the rest of the day’s décor

Bring your maid of honor or your friend to your last dress fitting so they can learn how to bustle your dress.

 We were fortunate to be asked to assist in the design of a wedding held in Indianapolis. We packed the car and had the flowers shipped direct from our California purveyor. Indianapolis was such a treat. I had no concept of what to expect from the Midwestern town. I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, the folks are as kind and helpful as possible. ALL of them. The location, D’Amore, was atop a hi rise building with beautiful views.. The design was a bit of hip and cool with romantic flair.

Eat healthy food and drink water during your wedding day. Be sure your groom and groomsmen do the same.

Here is our take on a fun way to add interest to a station at your event. We used wooden swings we made to hang above the table and display desserts on to accentuate the rest of the set-up.

Don’t wait too long after your wedding to have your gown cleaned after the wedding and be sure to use a trusted professional.

Here is our take on an Alice In Wonderland Table we did for last year’s Love Is In The Air Event. It turned out fun & whimsical and was one of everyone’s favorites of the night!
