{Real Wedding Decorations} Anntoniett & Scott Kaminski Wedding

Anntoinett and Scott were married on the grass ceremony location on May 27th 2012, a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The bride looked stunning as she was escorted to the ceremony by her father.   Her  red rose  bouquet  popped against her white dress.

The couple really know how to turn heads with this dip and kiss. The couple incorporated picture perfect details like this throughout the entire evening.  Every detail was caputered by Rex of  Rex Vincent Photography.

The ladies in the bridal party were dressed in alternating shades of lavender and they posed for countless photos many being quite fun and relaxed.

The couple also included white and lavender parasols for most of their guests to help shade themselves on this sunny afternoon. They had to take a few photos with them since they were quite a hit with the guests.

The reception was filled with touches of white and lavender and shades of purple. The flowers and centerpieces tied in to the colors nicely and the lovely favor boxes placed at each place setting included a special custom ribbon with the couples name and wedding date and a  lavender flower tucked in on each.

The couple had lavender napkins tucked in the champagne glasses to add another pop of lavender to crisp clean white reception tables.

They choose a lovely three-tier cake with each cake posed separately.  Each cake was decorated beautify with real flowers ans specie touches, from the K monogram on the top-tier to the top hat and high heel on the second to the adorable bride and groom sugar accents on the bottom tier.

The couple ended the night with a Sparkling exit with sparklers for the guests as the bride slipped into a shorter dress from the exit and special embroidered mickey mouse hats for each.

Congratulation Mr and Mrs. Kaminski!

{Tuesday Tip} What I didn’t know as a bride

This tip come from an amazing blog

This blog post is something every bride should read so I wanted to share it with you all.


   What I Didn’t Know As a Bride That I Know Now

     Thursday, November 19, 2009 in Just Engaged 1 comment by Lauren Grove

 I’ve been in contact with a few new brides lately, and I found myself giving them a great deal of advice. I then realized that it  was basically what I didn’t know as a bride that I know now. I learned through reading blogs and working in the wedding  industry, and basically just educating myself. However, as a new bride, the first thought usually isn’t to educate yourself…it’s to  grab the newest wedding magazine and start flipping through it, marking the pages of things you like. That’s not a problem at  all…revel in your engagement! You have to know what you like and what you want!

I was the first out of my friends to get married. There were so many times that I thought, “I wish I had some sort of warning or  preparation so I could’ve known about this!” Therefore, I thought I would do a quick list of some of the major things that come  to mind that I wish I had known when I was bride.

 1. BLOGS! As I’ve said before, I had no clue about what wedding blogs were, how to find them, and what information they had!  Photographers’ blogs, inspiration blogs, planners’ blogs are SUCH great resources! I found SO many great ideas and inspiration  on blogs…the only drawback was that I found blogs too late in my planning and I couldn’t do half of the things that I wanted to.  So you’re on a great start by reading a blog!

{Real Wedding Decorations} Maritza & Chris Martinez Wedding

Saturday May 26th 2012 Maritza and Chris were wed in the Courtyard at Menifee Lakes Country Club. The ceremony was simply beautiful with a white arch and white and purple flowers giving just enough elegance to the natural beauty of the location.

The reception was full of plum accents to match the bridesmaid full length dresses.  The tables were draped in white linen and topped with satin plum overlays and the chairs were dressed with white chair covers and  airy plum organza chair sashes. The napkins were folded in a beautiful formal shell fold. Mirrors and candles added to the beautiful floral arrangements on each table and the room twinkled with the candlelight and draping when the sun set.

Congratulations to Maritza and Chris!

{Tuesday Tip} Leave a little elbow room

This tip comes from a bride and it is something to think about when making your seating chart and the number of guests you plan to have at each table.

A standard round table (at most venues) is a 60 inch round table and can seat up to 10 guests. Just because you can do this doesn’t always mean you should. If you have lots of left hand guests (like bride Marina) consider only seating 8 people per table.   Left hand guests could actually bump elbows with all those right hand guests if you seat too many guests at a table. So remember to leave a little elbow room.
