I received this note from a client, and I wanted to share:

My adorable friend Katie (we were dancers together in high school) and her handsome-as-anything husband Kevin have an amazing wedding photography business. They travel the world to photograph the most amazing destination weddings (hello, Paris?). I see a lot *a LOT* of wedding photography, and they rank among the best. They have this innate ability to capture the personality of the couple, and all the small details that they have put into their wedding day.
I thought this wedding was particularly special. The couple strikes me as happy and down to earth, even on their wedding day. I think its the groom's custom Tom's.
Check out Katie and Kevin here.

Remember Jennifer? Her adorable circus themed wedding has been featured at Utah Bride Blog. I made her veil, flower, and the bridesmaids' headbands. Isn't the whole thing stunning? Congratulations, Jennifer! I'm so happy I could be a part of it!

I think these Dia de los Muertos style wedding cake toppers from Claylindo's Etsy shop are so kitschy and unique! A bicycle? Piggybacks! The puppies?!! I can't even tell you how much I love that piggy back couple! Adorable.

Several weeks ago I was contacted by Melissa Niu, a Boise photographer. She asked me to collaborate with her on a few upcoming photo shoots. One was this adorable product shoot for a sweet little clothing company Small Beans. It was Melissa's idea to make the birdcage veil for the little girl. I think it is absolutely adorable.
Petite White Flower
The little linen ruffle dress is here.
Our next project is a vintage wedding shoot. I love Melissa's feminine, clean approach to photography. I think the light is stunning. I can't wait to see how it comes together.

I was featured on Wedding Chicks this week! Wedding Chicks is one of the few the go-to sources for impeccable wedding inspiration. I'm very excited to be a part of it. This feature was about pairing a birdcage veil with a vintage 1950's tea-length dress. So adorable!
Emily's face is all over the wedding scene, you know. That photograph has always been one of my favorites from the moment I saw it.

Cinnamon Sugar Marshmallows
I have always wondered what a homemade marshmallow tastes like. What the difference is between those nasty, sticky blobs that come in bags at the store, and these gigantic lovely cubes. So when I saw Have It Sweet Confections on the Etsy front page, and their marshmallow sampler, I ordered it to see for myself. I must proclaim, I am completely smitten.
The sampler came with Heavenly Vanilla, Double Cocoa Swirl, Lemon Meringue Pie, and Sugar Cookie marshmallows. The texture is more dense than store-bought marshmallows. They are sweet, as they should be, but have more flavor than the others. And the shape is so darn cute.
The thing that struck me first was how prettily they were wrapped and packed. They came in the prettiest gold wax paper bags, with 4 marshmallow to a bag. I though how lovely and thoughtful they would be as favors for guests at a wedding. Maybe tied with a custom colored ribbon to match.

Chasity contacted me last week with quite a dilemma. Her wedding is February 20th, and the dress shop where she had ordered her birdcage veil (and paid a fortune for) closed down without giving her the veil or her money back. Can you imagine? For just one moment, try to comprehend this girl's situation ....
Okay. She contacted me and I was up for the challenge of helping her in a time crunch. She sent me a picture of her dress - an absolutely gorgeous strapless dress. The skirt blows me away. The detailing is phenomenal...
She was in love with the short veil from the last post, and wanted a bit of volume on top for a very classic bride look. I used the short veil as inspiration, and designed a two-tiered veil that is about shoulder-blade length - somewhere between shoulder and elbow length. The length is perfect for her dress because it will overlap the back by a few inches creating a lovely proportion. The volume on the top is very classic, and combined with the length it has an adorable 1950's feel. It is just wide enough to create the perfect amount of poof. It is light and airy, classic vintage, and definitely not 1980's era poof pompadour. I am so pleased.
Here are a few photos Chasity took herself. Lovely as they are, I can't wait to see a few photographs from her wedding next week. I'm so excited to add this veil to my spring line.
Congratulations, Chasity! It was lovely to work with you!

I've had the great fortune to work with Tracey Taylor and Blackburn Studios. These people have made my little project into something incredible. Without their collaborative efforts I wouldn't have these gorgeous images.
Tracey is getting married (yes, I'm doing her veil). She wanted to do a budoir shoot before the wedding. Its a fabulous way to get dressed up and feel special and pretty. I was thrilled to design a few special pieces for the occasion. I am so happy with the photographs! I can't wait to list a few of these items in the etsy shop. Holy cow, this girl is talented!
A humongous thanks to Blackburn Studios.
