Sweet Sweet Words

Hey everyone!

I wanted to share with you our amazing new review from Mrs. Sherri Hammett...
Jessica, and the Finishing Touch team, were a blessing to work with. She captured every detail our dream wedding perfectly! I was recommended to her services by one of my photographers, and cannot tell you how great it was to actually enjoy my day, rather than be bogged down with details. Jessica took care of everything! From ensuring that contracts were being delivered to set up and take down the day of, all I had to do was sit back and enjoy being the bride. She was so easy and pleasant to work with and extremely prompt in replying to each of the questions (or panic moments) that I had. You will not regret having her be part of your day, as well! I promise, it was one of the best decisions I made!! Thank you a million times!! We loved every little detail.
Sherri - It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and Ryan. I can't thank you enough for the sweet review. I wish you both the best in your new life together and hope that you'll keep in touch!

Color Palette Inspiration from HGTV

Hey everyone!

I find inspiration in so many places. And inspiration this week came in the form of an email from my mom (fellow Finishing Touch coordinator). It was full of bold and stylish color combinations for interior design that can translate easily into incredible wedding color palettes. My favorite is this navy combo...
It's fabulously sophisticated! And oh so perfect for a modern bride. For more incredible combinations in every color of the rainbow, head over to HGTV now. Enjoy...

Thanks for the gorgeous inspiration mama!

Sherri & Ryan's Bold Fayetteville Wedding

Hey everyone!

I started working with Sherri eight months ago to design her perfect modern wedding. Although Ryan spent most of that time overseas serving our country in the Army, Sherri wanted his opinion on almost every aspect of the wedding design. Through emails and phone calls, they made every decision together. They chose a bold red and purple color scheme and we ran with it using incredible linens, sleek spandex chair covers, and dramatic lighting to complete the design. Here are a few of the fabulous details...
flowers by Jules Design, cake stand by Finishing Touch, linens from BBJ, macaroons from Shelby Lynn's Cake Shoppe

And here are a few beautiful moments from the day...
the tech savvy First Look
they wrote their own perfect vows
the cake cutting
the sweet father/daughter dance

a fabulous party
And me with the happy bride and groom at the end of the night...
Head over to Benfield Photography's blog for more from their big day! {My favorite images of the cake and lighting are up over there...Don't miss them!}

Thank you to Sherri & Ryan Hammett for letting me be a part of your big day! I wish you all the happiness in the world and know that you'll have a long and wonderful marriage!

Sherri's Bridal Portraits

Sherri & Ryan Hammett were married on Saturday in a modern ceremony & reception in Fayetteville, Arkansas. In keeping with the bride's contemporary style, she didn't want traditional bridal portraits. So Dale and Meredith of Benfield Photography had fun finding unique places to shoot Sherri's edgy portraits and the results are FABULOUS...

Come back later for more from their bold, modern wedding!
