These custom fabric hairpieces can do double duty! They can be a hairpiece or corsage and the artist will customize them to fit your color scheme.

Remember Rhiannon and Tony’s stunning wedding at Old St. Hilary’s in Tiburon? Rhiannon rocked a birdcage veil and it really set the tone and style for her wedding. Try making your own! You can buy a yard of Russian net (or French net for a softer feel) for $8 a yard online and 100 Layer Cake offers a great little tutorial here. Add  a flower clip or feather hair piece for some drama and you have a one of a kind accent for your day.

This past Wednesday was my birthday and this week’s “Friday I’m in Love” goes out to Jesse (my husband) for making sure my birthday was amazing. He not only planned a great evening last night (umm massage at Burke Williams??) , but also arranged for me to get out of town this weekend sans children. Yay! I get some time with my sister and a girlfriend on Saturday and get to snowboard on Sunday- woo hoo! I love you Jesse, you are the best!

Friday I’m in Love : Ideas for the Ring Bearer

While there are a ton of creative ideas of how to get the ring to the ceremony, this post focuses solely on items that a ring bearer could carry the rings on. I love all three of these and think they would all be great for adding some character to your ceremony.

This is the perfect addition to an earthy, eco- friendly wedding. I love the incorporation of succulents and the bright pop of green. You can find it at April Hiler Designs on Etsy.

I love fabric flowers and I will focus on them in another post, but this ring pillow caught my eye. I though it would look lovely at an eclectic, artsy wedding. You can find in also on Etsy at Evie’s shop

The third one is really sweet. I would be adorable at a vintage inspired wedding. Family Attic has a great site on Etsy, if you haven’t seen it yet, get on it! :)

One of my very favorite places in the South Bay is having their Harvest Wone Festival tomorrow. Swing by if you can- it is great for the entire family. The Mountain Winery not only hosts great concerts during the summer, but also produces yummy wine and is a breathtaking spot for a wedding. A wedding at the Mountain Winery is sophisticated and private with views to die for. If you are still searching for a wedding venue, you should definately check it out. They recently did some extensive renovations and I love the outcome. There are terraces all over the place, amazing views, and a sophisticated feel.

Happy Friday!!!

This month has been crazy and I haven’t had a chance to post in this category- sorry! I have a lot of weddings to get through and post, but for now, I thought I would post a few things for adding color to your event. You can see my first post for adding color to your even here.

Amy Butler is an artist who makes all sorts of things from scrapbooking supplies and cards to sewing patterns and fabrics. I love the idea of making place mats or runners for a wedding table setting out of her gorgeous fabrics. Mix up the patterns but stay in the same color scheme and you have a colorful chic backdrop for your table settings.

You may remember my recent post of Greta and Jeff’s late summer Nestldown Wedding in Los Gatos. They incoorporated eggplants and grapes into their centerpieces for color. You could do bowls of crisp green apples, platters of artichokes, or baskets of heirloom tomatoes. The possibilities are endless and can be sent home as favors. Super easy- and a “green” idea!

Another centerpiece idea that has a vintage, but modern look is metal planters with succulents plants. They are low and allow guests to see each other at the table and have wonderful texture. They are living and can be sent home with guests of honor to live on at their homes.

I am gearing up for the wedding of Patrice and James in Half Moon Bay at the Oceano Hotel this weekend- should be beautiful! Happy friday and enjoy your weekend!

This past week we got big news…. our house sold! It had been on the market for 5 weeks, not that long, but long enough that the process of selling (open houses, etc) had gotten old! Selling a house that you love is hard- especially in this economy where you don’t necessarily get what you [...]

 

This past week we got big news…. our house sold! It had been on the market for 5 weeks, not that long, but long enough that the process of selling (open houses, etc) had gotten old! Selling a house that you love is hard- especially in this economy where you don’t necessarily get what you think your house should be worth.  I have stayed pretty positive about the experience, but will admit I have had my fair share of pity parties too! When I am in that sort of funk, I usually seek out something that helps get my head on straight again, helps me remember what really matters- you know? So coming across a blog called An Inconvenient Tumor was just what I needed this week. It is the online diary of Christie and Bryan and “and their commitment to life, each other and kicking cancer’s big fat ass.” Just thought I would share it in case any of you need a little something like that this week. I think their story and attitudes are pretty inspiring.

Another find this week that I LOVE and I am totally doing… Secret Agent L. They specialize in anonymous acts of kindness and day brightening. If you have ever wanted to be an undercover agent- here is your chance! You can sign up for their affiliate program and Secret Agent L will send you your assignment. It could be leaving a note on a bench to be found telling a stranger that they are awesome or leaving dog treats in baggies at a dog park. The whole point is to do something little that will brighten someone else’s day. If we all did this, I think the planet would shine a little brighter!

Happy Friday!

I have a great wedding today here in Los Gatos at Nestldown. I am doing a photobooth at this wedding and am so excited about it! This week has been a hectic one, one of those where you feel like you are barely keeping afloat. Not in a a bad way- just really busy. 3 weddings, a family portrait and an all day commercial shoot. That is alot of images to sort through!

So, the first shout out for this Friday is to Jesse- my wonderful husband of nearly 6 years. He took two days off work this week so I could do what I needed to do without worrying about childcare, he has cleaned up after me all week, and has been so supportive of me doing what I love. He is a fantastic daddy and I admit I am a little jealous when the kids scream “yay!” When they realize they get the whole day with daddy. I love him love him love him.

Here we are on California Screamin’.

This Friday I am also feeling some love for Facebook. I woke up this morning to a friend request from my oldest friend whom I thought I had lost contact with forever. I met her when my family lived in Venezuela (my dad was transferred there for 2 years- when I was in 1st and 2nd grade). After my family moved back to California when I was 8, Johanna and I kept in contact writing letters- good old snail mail. Her family would come visit occasionally and once, when I was 17, I got to go to Finland to visit her family. I have very fond memories of that trip- her wonderful family and friends and the beauty of Finland. I am so excited to be back in contact with her! Yay Facebook!

My dad- it is his birthday today and he is currently in Peru visiting his parents and siblings. Happy Birthday Dad! I love you! My grandpa turns 89 this week as well, so they are all down there celebrating together- I wish I could be there!

Have a fantastic Friday everyone!
