It's all in the details....

I believe the key to a signature wedding is the details. One great way to infuse the details with your personality and style is by taking the traditional elements of a wedding and altering them slightly to fit the setting and theme. You can do this with nearly every element of the wedding - here are some examples of unique ring bearer pillows that add a little fun and whimsy to your day!
You can take this opportunity to completely change the ring bearer pillow and use shells for a beach wedding, a birds nest for a "love birds" themed wedding, or creating a pillow of moss or flowers for a garden wedding. If you would prefer to only slightly alter the traditional pillow, you can make your own using a unique fabric that fits in with your decor or simply adding a flower to a store bought ring bearer pillow. Have fun with it!

Susan & Bob - July 26, 2008

Susan and Bob were married in a beautiful garden wedding on one of the hottest days of the year! In spite of the heat, they had an amazing day with their closest family and friends. Bob's daughter and Susan's daughter acted as their wedding party, with Susan's 7 year old son walking her down the aisle. They are so in love and deserved every moment of their perfect day!

Nice Day for a White Wedding

White weddings are back! It seemed that for years, everywhere you looked weddings were orange and pink or purple and green. These weddings are beautiful and fun, but nothing says classic elegance like white. The trick to having a white wedding is to use several shades: white, ivory, pearl, cream. Add in a little chocolate or copper detailing and you have a wedding that is both timeless and modern.
