Springtime Easter Inspiration

easter bunny

I’d thought we’d end the week with this lovely Easter inspired shoot! A pretty pink dress, floppy eared bunny and gorgeous floral crown (made of white daffodils with coral centers, bi-color clematis blooms, and speckled hellebores in shades of mauve and plum) makes for some perfect springtime photos! Thanks to Kristina Curtis Photography for the photos and to Calie Rose for the florals. Hope you have a most lovely weekend!

New Zealand 70s Inspired Bohemian Wedding: Kate + Nasa

new zealand bride and groom

Kate + Nasa wed on Waihi Beach in the Bay of Plenty in New Zealand! They wanted a relaxed wedding to reflect their artistic bohemian lifestyle. Nasa is an esteemed tattoo artist and Harley Davidson fanatic, so a cookie cutter wedding just wouldn’t do. The couple chose a 1960s/70s theme and asked their guests to dress up as if they were heading to Woodstock! Love it. Kate appointed her maid of honor (Shaye from On My Hand) in charge of styling, props, flowers and the cake – which was tattoo influenced with skulls and red roses. Guests dined on little bites of Latin inspired food as the groom is from Brazil and partied the night away to a 70s style band.

Thanks to Greta Kenyon Photography for the photos and congrats to Kate + Nasa!

I have a couple. While getting ready with my closest girlfriends, I ended up asking one of my friends who was helping set up the wedding about 10 minutes before the ceremony if she would join the bridal party! Lucky her dress fit in with everyone else’s! Another special memory of the day was dancing with everyone and knowing that all of our friends were there with us celebrating our love with us.

Love that Kate mixed it up by wearing a brown dress while her bridesmaids wore white!

Do what you think is right. Don't ask people for their opinions too much as it will cloud your own vision. It's about you and your fiance sharing your love with your special friends and family.

Sip & See Baby Shower

hello baby shower


Since our sweet Sienna was born 5 weeks early, we didn’t have a chance to throw a baby shower before her arrival. So, I thought it made perfect sense for us to throw a Sip & See – or a Hello Baby Shower, as I am calling ours. :)

Have you lovelies heard of a Sip & See?

A Sip & See is a baby shower held after the baby arrives! I love this idea, especially for a busy couple like us.  Before Sienna arrived we were so busy preparing to become parents + working on GWS that we just didn’t have any weekends free for a proper baby shower! As a bonus, since Mom is no longer pregnant at a Sip & See, she can have a cocktail with her friends if she wants! :)

So, we decided a Hello Baby! shower would be the perfect way to introduce our little lady to family + friends. The other thing I love about this type of shower? It is pretty much just an open house – no lame baby shower games (although there are some that I do love!) or set times  – just a time for others to come meet our little lady…

Since the shower will be more of an open house, I wanted to create a fun Bubbly Bar where guests could make their own mimosas. I love a mimosa and with spring here, wanted to do something with lots of bright colors. I love how the Bubbly Bar came together and we’ll be sharing a DIY on how to create this fun colorful bar on Monday also – perfect for a bridal shower or wedding too! :)

Instead of paper cups and plates, which just create more trash (yes, we are keeping all our trash to one bag!), we rented gorgeous vintage plates + coupes from Casa de Perrin. I found the wooden letters from Michael’s and painted them in bright colors to match our palette.

I love animals, so we incorporated some cute gold animals into the Bubbly Bar to keep it fun!

Hopefully our sip & see shower will inspire you to throw your own non-traditional baby shower!
