I’m already in the mood for the holidays! And parties! And everything yummy that comes with both. I’m also in planning mode for a friend’s baby shower in February. So it was just a matter of time before I found these FAB hanging tassel garlands. OH MY! I’ve stumbled upon a couple weddings with colorful fabric strands hung from walls and ceilings. Loving the new twist to the pom-poms, paper lanterns, mobiles, etc. I’m absolutely in-aw with their color choices and all made by hand! Come….swoon with me.

Hello strangers! I’ve been away on my last travel whirlwind for the year – SF to Chicago for my last wedding of 2010. Chicago to St. Louis for another week long photoshoot of Cheree Berry Paper (can’t wait to see all our hard work on their new website! see part 1 and 2 of our last shoot) and now back home! I’ll be having some heavy post-production weeks with a bit of Halloween and Thanksgiving in between before it’s December…holy cow already! Also, a reminder to brides and grooms looking for 2011 vendors – booking season is NOW! Get’em while we are hot! And now, I leave you with some snaps that I took while in Chicago of my friend’s new pup named Frankie! (more…)

Happy almost weekend! You remember Kristen and Gene’s Sunday Stroll? Their recent and lovely downtown Chicago wedding was a classic elegance with a hint of retro. Thankfully, the big chance of rain never happened (thanks mother nature!) but the wind gusts took over. But if that was our biggest challenge, fashion wind with a plush veil…well I’ll take it! Super sweet couple with incredible charm! Big thanks to my right-hand photo lady Amy. Enjoy the sneak! (more…)
