My amazing daughter-in-law!

My daughter-in-law is very talented and creative. These are photos of "onesies" that she has made from adult shirts. The first one is of Soren wearing a onesie made from one of his daddy's work shirts. The second photo is a onesie that Sarah was "commissioned" to sew for a baby of a band member from a shirt that his daddy designed. This is such a cute idea for gifts. She is hoping to sell the idea on "Etsy" a homemade/craft website. Sarah is an excellent seamstress and I'm excited about the possibility of a little "cottage" business for her.

Happy Anniversary Lauren & Bill!

Sunday will be Lauren & Bill's first anniversary. I was privileged to coordinate their wedding at the Naples Grande. I stopped in today to get some information for a new client. I mentioned the DeAngelis wedding to the concierge and he commented that it was the most beautiful wedding he had seen at the Grande - then I mentioned that I helped planned the event! It was a sweet moment. More importantly, Lauren and Bill are a sweet couple and I wish them many more happy years as husband and wife!

The wedding was amazing. I will include a few photos that I took. Cher Hanna was photographer, Vintage Vinyl was the band, 50 Fifty provided design and flowers, Brett Culp provided videographers, Lauren's mom designed and had the fireplace built, etc. The evening included shawls provided at the last minute from a cousin who brought them from Ikea, a great candy bar, dinner poolside, a late night snack of hamburgers and fries and the red Ferrari or was it the Lamborgini? In lieu of a party favor, the couple choose to make a donation to an orphanage in Cambodia - there was a card at each seat with a child's photo and name from the orphanage. It was a great addition to the party. The whole evening was special and showcased the love that this family has for each other, the love that Lauren & Bill share and their love and commitment to God. Happy Anniversary Lauren & Bill!

So I have a meeting with a new bride tomorrow that I should be preparing for - I will tonight. But for now, I'm playing with my grandson. He was 2 months yesterday! His T-shirt says, "Totally cuter than daddy!" Its a toss up - they are both pretty cute! I love this little boy - he has captured my heart!

I'm working on a wedding in November and the bride loves red, but not red roses. I love these bouquets. The wedding will be held at the Tiburon Golf Club - a very pretty venue. I'd love to pull some sage green and a little gold into the color scheme. I love the berries and the greenery in these bouquets.

Pink and Orange cake

I love "surfing" the web for new ideas. So my next few posts will be my new "favorite" ideas.

My daughter loves pink & orange gerber daisies and green button poms so this picture is for her!

We Wed Brunch

Thank you, Kelly McWilliams and staff from Weddings by Socialites, for the fun and informative wedding workshop. I really enjoyed meeting everyone. Kelly shared lots of great information about "social media" and I am now "twittering"! The event was held at Miromar Lakes Beach Club - it is a beautiful venue. Leslie and her staff did a great job. The room was beautifully decorated with linens from BBJ Linens and flowers by Signature Floral. What a fun morning!
