Dress Shopping

Today, Destiny and me went on a dress shopping/"save the date" adventure. Alyssa at Mayfair Bridal was AWESOME she was able to help us find just what we were looking for. Then, we were off to Finders Keepers (Invitations and Gifts) to brainstorm ideas for the unique Carnival theme. Ann and Jan over there are ROCKSTARS, if you are looking for something different and fabulous make an appointment. I can't wait to see the photos from Destiny and Rob's engagement session at SIX FLAGS!!! Gerri from Photographically Ever After ( will be capturing all their special moments.

On Saturday, September 25th Erica and Isaac joined families and friends on their new life as husband and wife. Kristen from Urth Studio ( was the photographer and helped capture their perfect day.
 The ceremony and reception took place at The Vineyards. Tucked away on Hwy 3009 this venue is a unique wine vineyard with a elegant atmosphere.

Leticia from Freesia Designs ( wowed us with her floral and linens. Erica picked two beautiful colors of soft pink and gold.

If you love her shoes, she custom made them for her special day. The reverse side had the date in the same letters.

 It had rained that day and everyone stayed dry and looked fabulous!

 Elms Bakery ( did both the four tier traditional vanilla/butter cream cake and the custom guitar groom's cake that was a replica of Isaac actual guitar.
