    You’re killing me here! :) How creative can you be? Are you getting the required eight hours of sleep? Really…all your boards are wonderful and fun to look at every day!

  • Since our colors are navy and white and khaki, you pretty much hit the nail on the head. A million thanks!

    I check in daily and was so excited to see the nautical theme!! I love the Oscar de la Renta navy and white grosgrain dress! I wish I could spend $4000 on my dress!!!

    I’m wondering what you might do with a fall beach wedding. The bride is thinking one of her colors will be deep pink. And shells- lots of shells!

  • Although our wedding venue is in the “mountains” we often have brides with beach themes! This past weekend it was a true beach party – navy dresses, turquoise square wedding cake decorated in seashells, sand dollar and beach candle favors. The bride even wore a starfish necklace and earrings.
