2009 was a HUGE year for wedding trends especially for the hip, indie bride! Not only did the diy train take-off later in the year, but I think the handmade artisans and crafters led the whole way! I’m definitely one of ‘their’ biggest fans and supporters. Indie artisans keep on rocking into 2010 and beyond! Check out the rest of the favorite indie artisans here. Please include your favorites in the comments, let’s share and mingle!

ps – come see me at the first ever Indie Wed on Jan. 30th in Chicago! If all goes well, maybe it will make it’s way to San Francisco soon!

Hello all! I know I know, I’ve been slacking on the blog. Let’s just say it’s album design time flavored with new year business evaluation and topped with taking things easy before the next photo season gets crazy! But without giving too much away, I wanted to show you some of my Indie Wed booth details! As you know, I’ll be flying back to Chicago to partake in a fantastic bridal market on Jan. 30th. I have the fine ladies at Dilly Lily helping me out with my booth design as well. I’m going for a charming, rustic, flea-market theme to match my current and revised photography style – do you likie? Come visit me and my Smitten Sticks photo booth! First 50 at my booth get an instant photo!

ps – inexpensive tablecloth fabric purchased at Fabrix, you must go! Reindeer moss purchased at my new fav floral shop in SF called Fleur*t.

Call it an Xmas present to myself! How was everyone’s holiday? I need a holiday from the holidays, yay for NYE! While out shopping for marketing crafts, I saw these adorable lights hanging from a store called New Asian Style in San Francisco’s Fillmore District. Fell.in.love. I bought the multi-colored strand for $20 but they had many monochromatic shades as well. Wouldn’t these be fantastic for a wedding reception, party or outdoor decor?! Then…. (more…)

As you can see I’ve been a little m.i.a for the holidays. A much needed break away from anything digital! I’m headed out of town today to celebrate some love with my family and will probably continue to be a little m.i.a until the New Year.  I wish you and yours the merriest of holidays, which ever you celebrate. May your time with loved ones be filled with many kisses, hugs and tons of laughter. See you in 2010! (well unless there’s something fabulous to say before then :)

Trends of 2010 – Pantone’s Turquoise Color of the Year!

pantone 15-5519 2010 color of the year trends

Ah, the adults crayon box. Pantone announced their 2010 color of the year! Pantone 15-5519! A little history session for those who are not design-oriented. “In 1963, Lawrence Herbert, Pantone’s founder, created an innovative system for identifying, matching and communicating colors to solve the problems associated with producing accurate color matches in the graphic arts community. His insight that the spectrum is seen and interpreted differently by each individual led to the innovation of the PANTONE® MATCHING SYSTEM®, a book of standardized color in fan format.”

What this means for you…well, you might see this color more often than not. Similar hues have hit the wedding industry, but I predict this hip color making more of a presence in weddings with other hip colors such as poppy, burnt orange and mustard yellow! Also, I’ve been eyeing the Pantone mugs for the last year after I saw them at Sprout Home but can’t justify the expense :) Would make a good gift! Color on! ps – all pantone dinnerware on sale here.
