The Perfect Backyard Wedding!

Sometimes there’s a wedding… and it’s perfect! That is definitely the case with Carrie and Andrew’s wedding last July! Their backyard wedding will go down as one of my all time favorites… ever!

Carrie and Andrew are also quite possibly one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever worked with. And, that’s saying a lot because I’ve worked with many amazing couples! They were pretty clear about what they wanted and they were so easy to work with. A wedding planners dream! They did such an amazing job with all of their personal details from the many, many handmade cranes to Carrie’s DIY escort card display! What a privilege to be a part of this special day!!

Just make sure your new label covers enough of the old one, unless you want to take the time to remove it and that could take several hours and be more frustrating than it’s worth. Read More…

    DIY Valentine’s Day – 52 Reasons I Love You

    Valentine’s Day is coming! You can’t escape it. It is the day for you to profess your love and celebrate it by going out to dinner or spending a romantic night in. It is the perfect opportunity to exchange gifts and cards with thoughtful words of love that you’ll want to read over and over. Whatever gift you are giving to your “someone special,” just keep in mind that it does not have to be expensive. Some of the most memorable and personal gifts are often those creative and handmade! One of my favorite handmade gift ideas is this “52 Reasons I Love You” from PaperVine.
