Don't Judge a Book by it's Cover....

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have an extreme book reading problem.  I always have a book with me any where I go, actually now more my Kindle then a book.  But anyways, these pictures are like my dream come true.  I want more then anything else in the world is a house in which I can have a library.  What's you favorite book??

Real Wedding: Creighton and Kelly

Creighton and Kelly's wedding was a very special one for me.  I am very luck to have been friends with these guys for a long time, so when they asked me to help plan their wedding and do their flowers, I was more then happy to do it.  The wedding took place at the Elkhorn Golf Course and the reception followed at the restaurant there.  The entire day was fun and beautiful, and let me tell you, these people know how to party.  I thank Hillary Maybery for the pictures on this wedding, but also this wedding wraps our summer wedding season together.  Thank you Hillary, Kristin and Max for a great summer!!!

Cakes on our minds.....

I am so happy to announce that Amy, my amazing manager and good friend, has started her own cake making business.  And if the sample cakes I have seen and ate so far, are any indication of her talent, she is going to be one busy woman!!  Very soon I will have lots of pictures of the cakes she is working on now.  As a result of the new adventure into baking,  we have been talking about cakes a lot around here, we have also been looking at a lot of other people's cakes.  One of the cool sites we came across is Zoe Clark Cakes, her cakes are very simple, but so elegant.  Check these out.  Stay tuned to see Amy's cakes, you are going to be blown away!!!

A Tiny House....

A couple months ago I came across these pictures from the New York Times.  This is a tinny tiny house in the Catskills, maybe one of the coolest designs I have ever seen.  I think the loft bed and the bookcase, may be my favorite part.  Look how cool this is.....

Real Wedding: Morgan and Bray, Part 3

So here we go with the finale of the pictures!  Time for the party, the food and flowers!  When Morgan and I talked about what she wanted the party to feel and look like, she explained that she wanted it to be like a really fun cocktail party.  And she wanted the crisp look of white flowers, white tablecloths, and white furniture.  So that is what we gave her. Lets just start with the food, Judith McQueen did a fantastic job with it. The plan was not to have a sit down dinner, but to have the night be filled with very heavy appetizers.  So people got more then enough to eat and drink, but also go to be way more social.

Next up the setting.  The entire wedding and reception was held on an empty lot, that was owned by Morgan's dad.  Lots of green grass and right on a big pond.  It was a perfect setting to have a clear tent.  And when you have a clear tent it is always fun to hang things in it, and that is just what my staff and I did.  You can see the hanging paper lanterns and then when it got dark, we also hung almost 200 votive candles too.

And last but not least the party and the people.  I loved this guest list, mainly because it was filled with some of my very favorite brides and grooms from past years, it was pretty special. In addition, my favorite band Marmalade Hill played, and we were lucky enough to have a special guest appearance from the world famous Dano and the Nobodies (a Ketchum favorite).  The guests danced the night away at when all the festivities ended they headed north to Whiskey's, to continue the fun.

I am sure that by the sheer amount of posts I have done on this wedding, you can tell how much I enjoyed this one.  Morgan and Bray I thank you both so much, and I can't wait to tell you the behind the scenes stories!  And I can't wait to meet that new little baby boy, as soon as you come to visit!!! Last but not least, thank you Hillary for all of the great pictures of this wedding and all of our weddings.
