Happy Wife = Happy Life!

I just love this shot! The bride looks so happy she is glowing.

Christina was a bride that definitely knew what she wanted. She had done extensive research on flowers and had it down to the number of stems in each bouquet.

An important detail to her bouquet was the use of her mother's rosary on the handle.

Elegance graced every aspect of the day.

The groom donned a pink rose boutonniere, while the groomsmen sported green roses.

Quaint church in the heart of the wine country.

Ready to walk down the aisle.

Another great shot captured by the talented
Larissa Cleveland.

The bridesmaids carried a pretty mix of lisianthus, button mums and berries.

The bride carried garden roses, Ecuadorian roses, hydrangea and berries.

Half the tables had a sweet garden mix of flowers and the others had fluffy balls of hydrangea.

The head table centerpiece draped in front of the newlyweds.

The cake was baked by the bride's friend Alison Mitchell.

Cute entry table with a touch of whimsy.

I had to include these romantic images captured by Larissa Cleveland, for you to enjoy.

Congratulations Billy and Christina!

And thanks Larissa for letting me share your beautiful images.

I want you to remember me...I'm leavin' my fingerprints

What an adorable idea and a great alternative to the traditional guest book. Vince and Myshell had their guests "fingerprinted" at the door!
Each guest could choose from one of 3 wedding colors to dip their finger in and leave their print on the tree like a leaf. They could sign it with the gold pens if they wanted.
The color scheme was a striking red and black, so the flowers were done in shades of white from ivory to cream.

A little bling was added to the roses and the ribbon wraps to play off the Bride's love of all things sparkly!
The guys sported calla lily boutonnieres.

The view from the back of the Commodore yacht where the ceremony was held.
The tables were topped with half low and half tall centerpieces.

The Bridal table was perfectly positioned at the head of the yacht.
This was an adorable cake topper and it looked like they were dancing on a cloud of rose petals.
Cheers to the happy couple!

A Metro Wedding

Metro restaurant in Lafayette was the perfect setting for this chic couple. What a beautiful space with a lot of elements and texture. There was fire, water, stone, leather, a great outside courtyard and a cozy inside.
The couple wanted organic elements as they would be found in nature. A beautiful look that would make their guest feel like they were sitting among colorful autumn trees, but with the coziness of the indoors.

The bride chose a warm color palette of oranges, brick and bronze with pops of green and plum.
I love how the fall leaves peak out of the neck of the bouquet.
The boutonniere and corsages had a chic natural vibe.
Glass votives hung from the tree branches to add to the ambiance.

Love the colors here. The stacks of white china look like modern art.
The mix of Liquid Amber and Oak dance with color.

There were a mix of tall and low centerpieces throughout the restaurant.

The cake smelled so good while I was decorating it...cause you know I'm all about the sweets!

The cake was topped with a special topper of the couple's favorite novels.
Congratulations to L & J!
