Floral Collars and Crowns for your Four Legged Friends

Fuzzy, furry, and…flowery? While some may see a pet at such an elegant event as a wedding as a degradation of tradition and a whirlpool of problems waiting to happen, I say that EVERY loved one should be part of your special day, whether they have two legs or four! Inherently, dogs are absolutely beautiful animals. Graceful,…

Anybody else as sick of winter as I am? Walking outside first thing this morning, as baby birds chirped pleasantly and sunshine filtered through buds of viridian leaves, left a special impression of delight upon me. The same kind of delight that makes summer weddings extra-special. Whether it’s a destination wedding on a romantic beach in Grenada, or…

Every other day I find myself with a new favorite flower, or some new swoon-worthy arrangement that makes my inner bride scream with…

FiftyFlowers -sun-valley-tulips

Early-morning sunlight glistens down from a high canopy of giant redwoods; the ocean thrashes with a pleasant sort of discord, crashing powerfully against the rocky shoreline. The green is uncomparable. Moss covers nearly the entire road, and where it’s not green, wildflowers, deeply purple and shockingly yellow, emerge from beds of red needles along the…
