A little bit a of sun and warm temps, and I’m all about spring! Very lucky to be living in San Francisco…yes, the fog can be dreary, but I remind myself what it’s like everyone else in the country and I stop ;) How about a little cozy relief for your guests to sit under during your wedding cocktail hour or dinner? Fabric canopies offer a whimsy and casual way to comfort a sometimes stiff event. Overhead sails, yes please.

I posted about Ribbons & Rust here – another fantastic place to rent vintage goods for your wedding or photoshoot. But yowza, Found is deliciousness! Lots of furniture, dishes, chairs, knick-knacks….basically anything you could imagine, Found has it! This business concept really makes sense, and I am happily reminded of that on a daily basis. Hmmmm, ideas are rolling….

Hope everyone enjoyed their extended weekend! I’m super excited to FINALLY show you the diy pop-up baby shower invitations I made (with the help of custom silhouettes by Le Papier Studio and modern calligraphy by Sincerely, Dapper) for our special friends. I’ll be hosting the event in Chicago on a Sunday after I photograph a fantastic winter wedding ;) Being our friends first little one (nicknamed Baby Kiwi), I really wanted to make it memorable with a special theme: Polar Pop-Up Potluck! (hint hint, it’s in Chicago during February). The whole thing will be diy at a modern floral shop space. Yes, I’ll have plenty of pics to show you next month, lots and lots of details! For now, take a peek of the invitation (resources listed at the end)! (more…)

Trend of 2011 – Cozy Winter Weddings

Wedding Trends 2011 — Edyta @ 11:10 AM

Lots of creative ideas swarming the wedding blogs the past couple years. But it seems lately, vendors are styling photo shoots geared around winter, and I like it. Winter weddings get a bad rap (maybe because it’s FREEZING!). But if done right with a bit of coziness, it can be extremely romantic and unique. And because we are seeing more and more charming ideas based around indoor and outdoor winter weddings, I see winter 2011 and 2012 experiencing more company!

Yum! Candy, cupcakes, pies, whoopie pies, ice cream sundaes move over…the float is here! Root beer floats are making a comeback, and I like it. I was always a fan of Coke floats too. Serve them up  at a wedding dessert table or as minis passed around, they will be sure to please!
