Amanda Dault & Brett Duell - Photos by Cindy Wagner

I am a color guru, and whether it is soft muted tones or big bold colors...I love putting together color combos! And this fuschia and clover green really made me happy. This was such a fun summery wedding, and Amanda (the bride) really knew what she wanted from the beginning. Check out the rest of the details below. All of the incredible photos were the work of photog supreme, Cindy Wagner of Wagner Photographics. Thank you for these amazing pics Cindy!

The lovely details!

I cannot resist a good shoe the hot pink heels.

 do I take this apart, and is anyone watching?

We used hybrid tea roses (the kind of roses that everyone is familiar with) in Amanda's bouquet, as well as a new variety of garden rose in her bouquet. The new variety is called "Ole" (pronounced "olay"), and it is the beautiful pink ruffly rose that you see in her bouquet. The fragrance from the Ole garden rose is amazing, and it is a full petaled, large rose. I highly recommend it....especially for those peony lovers who cannot get peonies out of season. It's more expensive than a regular rose, but seriously worth it!

This shot is from the photo booth that Cindy sets up at her weddings. There were so many hilarious shots from the photobooth. I can only imagine what the shots would have been like if we had something like this at one of my friend's weddings....I'm sure there would be a lot of laughs and a lot of editing ;). I love this shot or Brett and looks like they're having so much fun! Thank you Amanda and Brett for being fun to work with, wonderful customers!!!

Brianne and Kevin - Ault Park

Brianne Hart and Kevin Erwin are a super fun couple (even if they are Georgia Bulldogs)...see Kevin's boutonniere's in an earlier post. :) And, wow, what a beautiful wedding. Bri chose my absolute favorite rose, Black Magic red. Black Magic roses are in the velvet family of roses, and they are just that....a velvety deep red rose....LOVE them! The fantastic photos were supplied by Heart & Light Photography....gorgeous!

For the bridesmaids' bouquets we used tone on tone reds. I'm really loving tone on tone...the subtle shade differences between color really adds dimension to the bouquet. Tone on tone in any color scheme is a gorgeous look.

Basketball size centerpieces in all Black Magic red roses....GLORIOUS!!!

The Special Event Show - New Orleans

Event Design and florals by Urban Earth Studios, New Orleans, LA.

To say this show was fantastic is an understatement! The best of the best in the special events world spoke and performed at this show, and it was such a treat to benefit from their wisdom. Here are a few pics of the spectacular tablescapes during the Wedding Luncheon. The luncheon's keynote speaker, was Darcy Miller (the editor of Martha Stewart Weddings). She shared many of the exciting ideas that they feature in the magazine, as well as a few tidbits on the industry as a whole. One of my favorite things about going to this show is coming back with a plethora of new ideas to share with clients. And, hanging out in cool cities like New Orleans is fun too. ;)

Yes, I'm a groupy when it comes to talented people in the Wedding/Event industry. Below is a picture of me and Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. She is fantastic, and just a guru in the industry.
