This is really not my style for a wedding…. yet it is SO FABULOUS. I love it! Unfortunately, I’m short on time, sleepy, and having trouble forming words about how beautifully unique this wedding is. Just click on this photo to take you to the rest of the beautiful pics by Wildberry Studios.


A SugarLove Wedding: Amee and Glen

20 04 2008

The most absolutely perfect execution of my favorite wedding color scheme – black, white, and green.  I won’t spoil this with words.  Just look…

Wow, right?!  Bride in a chic, modern dress, bridesmaids in babydoll dresses, guys in skinny ties and flip flops?  You’ve got to be kidding me!  I love this couple’s style!  Add to that the simple cake and florals and I’m SOLD.

Do yourself a favor and check out more photos and details at The Bride’s Cafe.  Photos by SugarLove.

A Susan Bordelon Wedding: Victoria & Max

20 04 2008

So. Stylish.

It has been a long while since I’ve seen such a fresh wedding. It just oozes style, but not in that trying-too-hard way. It hits just the right note with me. LOVE it. I love the way the colors just go, without looking like someone sat down and painstakingly created a color palette. I just love everything about this wedding, photographed by Susan Bordelon.

I really love everything about this wedding from the laid-back beach vibe, to the unexpected bridesmaid dresses. Thanks to The Bride’s Cafe for bringing this wedding to my attention! Go read more about it here!

A Karla Fountain Wedding: Johanna & Gunnar

Be still, my heart.

I. adore. small. weddings.  I have a true appreciation for an intimate, simple, and chic affair.

This is what I would ideally do for my own wedding.  Very few guests, simple setting and attire, gorgeous photography.

Thanks to the fantastic Karla Fountain for always giving me something beautiful to gaze upon!

and as a mother, I can truly appreciate a finger-up-the-nose shot…

Today, The Little White Book had a absolutely gorgeous and fun inspiration board for a pop-art wedding.  I rarely feature inspiration boards from other blogs, but this one looked just like something I would create!  I love it!

So, I’ve been tagged by the lovely Lara Gale, author of BridalCheek.

The rules:

1) you link back to the person who tagged you.
2) post these rules on your blog.
3) share six unimportant things about yourself.
4) tag six random people at the end of your entry.
5) let the tagged people know by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Here goes!

  • One – I love flying. I love all airports, don’t mind the waiting, love the people watching, and get absolutely giddy at take-off.
  • Two – I like ONE Chinese dish [Japanese beef], and only from ONE specific restaurant.
  • Three – I can usually dance at a club non-stop for 3-4 hours.
  • Four – I have a love-hate relationship with sleep. I never want to go to sleep, but once I do, I never want to get up.
  • Five – I HATE tea, and the smell of it brewing makes me physically ill. However, when I worked at a sandwich shop and deli, my favorite opening chore was brewing the tea. It was the easiest job. I just held my breath.
  • Six – I hate when a stylist styles my hair. I can do it better, because I know my hair and what styles suit me. I feel like a completely different person (in a bad way) when they style it after cutting.

Now, the tagging! This is going to be quite hard to do, because it seems everyone has been tagged. I’ll try to pick people who haven’t. If you’ve already been tagged, sorry! Just ignore me!

I just don’t get it.

There are some so-called “fashion” trends that I really don’t understand. Ones that really are so unfashionable, yet are extremely popular.  It seems as if so many people wear them just because others do. Today I give you just a few examples.  

1. Guy Harvey T-shirts.  Why on earth are these appealing to teenage girls?  I can understand why a 40-something fisherman would want one.  But what gives them mass appeal?  I’m sure it’s partly a regional thing, because I haven’t seen them while on my weekend trip to Orlando.  However, you can’t walk through Wal-Mart or down any given street in Mississippi without seeing a few.  You see them on every age and gender.  It really bewilders me.  Sure, Guy Harvey has great skills when it comes to marine life art.  But on my shirt?  No, thanks.


2. Crocs.  I know that these are wildly popular and soooo comfy, but so what?  Why is most everyone overlooking the fact that they are HIDEOUS?!  Is it all the fun colors in which they are available?  Is comfort really so important that it matters not that your shoes look like swiss cheese?  I can be forgiving of them for those in the medical field, nurses and dentists wearing them with their scrubs.  They need that comfort, and pretty much all nursing shoes are ugly anyway.  Why, though, are housewives, teenagers, and middle-aged men all wearing them?  I just don’t get the appeal.

3. Sperry Topsiders.  These are the least offending of these 3 things, but still something I don’t understand.  Ten years ago, these were considered “paw paw shoes.”  Then apparently, someone said that they are cool and every high school and college student in America bought them, followed by their mothers and fathers.  I’m confused.  Why does the person who gets seasick and the one who hates fishing need boat shoes?  Furthermore, why these?  I can admit that there are a few cute styles, some turquoise ones and such.  They also make plaid ones in toddler sizes, which is pretty damn cute.  In general though, I hate these things.  Yuck.
