I am not typically all about the conventional – the traditional. I prefer a twist on tradition and a nouveau approach to convention. A little drizzle of butterscotch on vanilla, if you will. For instance, you know the typical bridal show that houses endless booths of vendors “hawking” their wares and vying for your affection? The kind that feels like a pipe ‘n drape convention? The Not Wedding is anything but that! It’s the butterscotch drizzle on the vanilla pipe ‘n drape.

The Not Wedding is a new kind of bridal show with hand picked vendors that “put on” a wedding and reception complete with ceremony, lovey couple, bridal party, yummy food, and dancing galore.

So, imagine my joy when they approached me and asked if I would be a part of this stellar event in March?! I was beyond thrilled – not only because they have a reputation for excellence, but because of the caliber of vendors that are selected each year. I am flattered and stoked. (grin)


Check out the details of this year’s event and I hope to see you there!

Ok, so I am fully aware that most people don’t actually use the exclamation, “yippee!” in real life. I used it last night when I saw this. For real. I’m a nerd…a happy one though!

The Wedding Chicks is a stunningly fabulous site. I have suggested it here before for their DIY and Shop categories. Imagine my joy at having a wedding  featured there yesterday! This is an image teaser from it, but scoot on over to for all the images!

This past Friday I was incredibly, incredibly honored and ecstatic (!) to have an inspiration shoot featured on one of the go-to wedding blogs for all things lovely: 100 Layer Cake. One of my brides last year actually sent me to 100 Layer because she said I would love it – she was right, I do!

Anyway, the shoot was a collaboration with the up and coming/highly talented dress designer Elisha Sewell and the marvelous lady-behind-the-lens Catherine Ritchie Park of MyLife Photography at Summerour Studio. Can’t wait to work with them again!

Here are a few more photos from the shoot that I just kind of adore…

It is always so exciting to be published – and not just online but in good old fashioned glossy print. So, I am ecstatic to have a wedding featured in the latest issue of Occasions Magazine! This issue is particularly gorgeous with lots of color, inspiration, and fabulosity. Check out the online version by clicking the link above or go support your local Barnes & Noble and pick up a copy. (pages 144-147)
