Wedding Shoot

I sat down yesterday with the talented Gigi Jara, and went through a million shots taken at the mini photo shoot we threw together a couple weekends ago! Oh we were thrilled with the shots! Here are just a few to share! I am currently back east visiting with family and friends so I am a bit busy for the next week...but had to share some with my readers!  The talent,  Hazelnut Photography and Make Up Artist Gigi Jara.

Holiday Wedding Card

Just got married? Want to share a little picture of your big day to others? Check out this simple snazzy card! I just received this card in the mail yesterday and I had to share! This card is from my friend Teresa who tied the knot last October! 

This is definitely one of my favorite glad they chose this as their official 2010 Holiday picture! 

Printed "Merry Christmas" on the front, made two slits in the paper, and slid the 
photo right into place.. So simple and creative!

This time last year we were sending out pictures from our big day for the Holidays! Wow, did that year go by fast! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends!

Wedding Shoot

Last weekend, I helped out my friend who is a makeup artist, do a fun mock up wedding shoot... The photographer, Jordana (Hazelnut Photography) was there to capture the beautiful pictures! So, now we are waiting... and waiting to get our hands on them! She posted one up on Twitter, stating it was her favorite! Take a peak at my friend Anna in her vintage dress :) Oh and my necklace!  :) Looks like its straight out of a magazine!

Anna hasn't worn this dress since her wedding day...she loved being able to throw it on and feel beautiful in front of the camera!! It was a very busy and chaotic day but I know we got some amazing shots! Soon as I get the rest I will share!

Lets Toast!

So, there has been the candy bar.. dessert bar...
So for 2011 why not change things up a bit!
The Champagne bar!!

Set up your table with bottles of Champagne and mixers ready on ice! Next, place several different garnishes for your guest to personalize their flutes!
Raspberries, blueberries and strawberries!  

Lastly, have some recipes easily available.

My favorite..the simple...

  • 2 oz peach juice or peach puree
  • 4 oz Champagne


Oh how much fun you could have designing your Champagne Bar!!
