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.

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.

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.
