Happy Halloween

In honor of all hallow's eve where you can dress up and be almost anyone, I thought I'd share some of my favorite Fantasy Theme Weddings.
This Tron inspired wedding is absolutely brilliant. Check out the feature on Green Wedding Shoes for all the details. 
This shoot was inspired by Tangled, but of course. Love this one as seen on Wedding Chicks.
This one was inspired by Super Mario. This one is so imaginative. I love it. See it here on Green Wedding Shoes.

Then of course theirs the fantastical scene of the wedding ceremony of Edward & Bella. In case you didn't already know, I'm a big Twilight Fan. I'm also Team Edward. I'm prepared to see the movie opening night! Can't wait!!!

Celebrity Wedding: Hilary Duff

Ok, so we've all seen a lot of celebrity weddings, and being in this business, I've seen a lot of weddings in general. But this wedding, of Hilary Duff, to me stands out above the rest.

Her dress was an original Vera Wang fit for a princess. 

Ok, so out of all the celebrity weddings I've seen, by far, my favorite decor of any celeb wedding is this one. I love all of the antique hanging lamps, swagged fabric draping, and the gardeny feel of many of today's weddings. It was over the top but not in a stuffy way, it was romantic, and warm & inviting.
And my fabulous friends over at Fantasy Frostings did this wedding cake, and I love that it's a unique spin on a traditional white cake. So unique.

Fun Fact: She was the same age I was when I got married.

Celebrity Wedding: Niecy Nash

I love the show "Clean House" and was so excited to see it's host tie the knot.

She used a very popular color for weddings which is lavendar & had an outdoor wedding at a Church Estate Vineyards (same place Fergie got married) in Malibu, California.
My colleague, Heidi Ryder took all the photos and did a fabulous job. This must have been a really fun wedding ot be at. Wish I could have been there...

The cake was from the fabulous bakery in Santa Monica called Vanilla Bake Shop. They're stuff is really good.

And she followed the trend of the matching but mismatching bridesmaid dresses, allowing each girl to choose her own style & flair. Love that!!!

Celebrity Wedding: Molly Sims

The photo I loved the most in this wedding is the photo of the bride with her bridesmaids, each in their own unique dress. I absolutely love this trend and if I got married all over again I would definitely let my girls pick their own dresses based on their own styles & budgets.
The bride's Marchesa gown was simple, elegant & romantic.

And who doesn't love nuptuals in wine country?

Fabulous Find: Frosted Petticoat

I just have to share this chocolatey goodness with you all. Some of my past clients, bride & her mother (& her sister) launched a chocolate shoppe that does chocolate pops in shapes like mustaches, keys, buttons, and of course petticoats. They are knows as The Frosted Petticoat (love that name).
I definitely couldn't resist these chocolate 'staches. How adorable would these be at a photo booth to take photos with and then take & have a little late night snack.

 I love the variety of options like these keys above. You can also customize if they are white chocolate, or a combo, and they can be painted almost any color if you want to customize your order.
 These buttons are super fun too and come in an array of colors like these Amber Gold Glimmer as well as: Starlight White Glimmer, Blue, Pink, Yellow, Green, Violet, and Burnt Copper. 
 They also have chocolate boxes like this cameo box as well as a vintage jewelry box.  
And with Halloween coming up they've got these fantastic cameo skeletons as well as skeleton caskets.
They also have these beautiful masks as well as bustiers for a bachelorette party or bridal shower.
The ladies at Frosted Petticoat are amazing ladies and so great to work with and would love to be a part of your special day. Who wouldn't want something made of chocolate on their special day? Let them know I sent you and you'll get a 10% discount. Who doesn't love that?? Make sure you head over to their Twitter & Facebook Pages & say hi.

Just Me: We Moved to Oceanside

As many of you may have noticed, I've been a little absent from my blog, and for that I apologize. Things have been busy in my neck of the woods, this past month we made the move farther south to North County San Diego, specifically Oceanside. My husband is a youth pastor and after interning with Saddleback Church for a year put his resume out there and was hired as the Jr. High Youth Pastor at Daybreak Church in Carlsbad. I am so proud of him.
So since his job requires him to be local and mine allows me to be at almost any place in So Cal we gathered our things and our puppy dog and made the move to San Diego. So I have to get my booty in gear and start networking with people down here, so if you're reading this & live in the San Diego or South Orange County area I would LOVE to meet up and treat you to coffee and hear all about San Diego.
So stay tuned for some fun new weddings coming soon including a Great Gatsbyesque wedding at Descanso Gardens with my fave vendors Peony & Plum and Picotte Weddings (photography). Then there's the pretty pink wedding I did last weekend at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu with Peony & Plum and Heather Kincaid (photographer). And then there's of course the Alice in Wonderland wedding I did with A Stunning Affair and Halberg Photographers. Stay tuned for some fun eye candy!!!
