Cardinal Fever in Boston

How cool is this? Our Clients from this past weekend stopped by Busch Stadium for wedding day photos and a photographer from the Boton Globe snapped a photo of them. True to his promise, Caitlin and Matt made it the paper showing their Cardinal Love! Congratulations Caitlin and Matt!

Leslie + Anthony

Every once in a while you work with a couple that just reminds you of home. For me it was this couple. I knew it the minute I met with them that we would become friends. As it turns out, we both grew up in a small town near each other. That gave us an instant connection. I always get a smile when I see a 618 number calling. There is something special about these two.  Many happy wishes Leslie and Anthony!

 PS  No more nose bleeds Leslie!

Embracing Two Cultures

We love how Jen and Ashok each embraced each other religions at both of their ceremonies. All photos were taken by L Photographie.

These beautiful programs designed by M Haley Design served as the the Hindu program and when flipped over served as the program for the Christian ceremony too.

Two elephants with their trunks up mean  good luck for the couple.

This beautiful Mandup was designed and created by Exclusive Events

Umm, he was supposed to SPRINKLE rice...not dump rince

We wanted to create a beautiful backdrop for the entrance of the wedding party. Structure and fabric draping by Exclusive Events and flowers by Artistry Florist

We removed the Mandup and replaced it with hanging orchids, strands of crystals and hanging glass candle holders. All created by Exclusive Events

Beautiful bouquet by Artistry Florist

We flipped the room in an hour and a half to create an entirely different feel for the Christian ceremony

Let your home inspire your wedding

I have been designing weddings for 10+ years and I always try to find inspiration in the couples lives. I came across this photo today and fell in love!  This florist/ designer found inspiration in her home.  What do you think?
