Fabulous Find: Loriii's {Photo Booth Props}

I don't know how this trend caught on, but, 'staches are taking over the face of photobooths everywhere. Doesn't matter if your a man or woman, adult or child, or even a dog; 'staches are for everyone now. 

After browsing through etsy, I came across this great shop called Loriii that has lips, mustaches, and glasses for as little as $17. Not too shabby...

Enjoy your 'staches...

Trend: Photo Booths Revisited

Who doesn't love a photo booth?? But no longer do you need to pay over $1,000 to bring in the big bulky old-fashioned photo booths, now you can have a truly one of a kind photo booth for hundreds of dollars less. 
Several photographers that I work with and love offer photo booths with or as an add-on to their packages including:
These photos are from a recent inspiration shoot I did. The custom backdrop and photography was by Picotte Weddings, Inc.
On tomorrow's post you'll see where you can purchase the mustaches and lips. 
Here is a link to where you can purchase the heart pillow. I love Etsy
The bride's dress is an original Alina Pizzano
Boutenniere is by Peony & Plum
Hair & Makeup by Stacy Bisel
Photo Booth Sign by Calligraphy Katrina
Photo Booth & Backdrop by Picotte Weddings, Inc.

Fabulous Find: Flora Bond's New Spring Collection

Nicole of Flora Bond and I met last year through Twitter. She has a beautiful aesthetic and eye for detail and if you'r looking for accessories that are truly unique, then look no further. 

From necklaces and earrings to head bands and hair combs, she uses vintage fabrics, beads, and found object to create masterpieces to wear. She can also create custom designs based on your color scheme and taste. She's great. 

Check out her work over at her website and etsy store. She also got a recent shout out over on Wedding Chicks as well.

Celebrity Wedding: Tori & Dean Renew Their Vows

Tori & Dean renewed their vows on their reality show, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.
 I just started watching Home Sweet Hollywood recently & have completely caught up on Season 3. I just can't get enough of it. 
 Starting in April their newest TV venture, SToribook weddings will begin to air on Oxygen.
 And if you haven't gotten enough of this fabulous couple, they are also opening a fabulous antique store in Sherman Oaks, appropriately named InvenTori which opens on Valentine's Day. The shop is located at 13828 Ventura Blvd N Sherman Oaks.
 The fabulous Sweet & Saucy did all of the yummy sweets.

 You can watch the episode on YouTube or iTunes to see all the details come together
 Many of the elements, such as the yellow motorcycle were antique pieces found and spray painted to give them a chic and modern vibe. What a great DIY option that's budget savvy too. 
 And Elizabeth Messina, took all of the amazing photos and is an amazing photographer.
