We had this built early last year as a giant 9x9 ceremony arch of solid wood. It’s the perfect dramatic but natural frame for your ceremony. I can’t wait to decorate this in a million different ways. This was for Sarah & Pascal’s wedding at Britannia Yacht Club with Laura Kelly Photography. We added a massive display of blush, peach and cornflower blue on the top beam. Perfection!

We're On Vacation!

Exactly one year ago today, I was coordinating the set up of my first television production… from my plane to Florida. I had to get hooked up to their wifi and I found myself Facetiming my team from somewhere above New York. Now, I’m heading to Cuba today with Jordan for a romantic, completely work-free vacation. The first one in 5 years. I travel a lot but I work through my travels. I’m so fortunate that I have a job that I can work abroad from for part of the year if I want to. This year though, it’s been my busiest, and I don’t think I’ll get to do this again for a while. It will be our first real vacation together. We’re spending 5 days in a private casa in Habana Vaija (Old Havana), right in the heart of the old city. We’ll eat at the best restaurants I could find, wander the streets and get lost with good drinks, candy-coloured buildings and latin music playing in the background. The last 4 days of the trip will be spent at a resort in Varadero where we’ll really get to put our feet up at the beach and get a little relaxation and pool time before heading home to chaos. I’m so happy I have Virginia and Becca holding down the fort while I’m away! Thank you ladies, this wouldn’t be possible without your hard work. 

It's the Little Things...

This year, I'm really putting serious effort into customizing the "little details" in wedding designs. I want our events to be really polished and well-thought out (they usually are but I tend to be a minimalist and try to reduce everything I can at a wedding). 
One of the small details I love to include is a matching ring box. Ring boxes can be so ugly but with @the_mrs_box you can't go wrong. They are famously beautiful, dainty velvet boxes that come in dozens of complimentary shades for your day. I have had the blue box for 2 years and still looks amazing. I just bought the blush and burgundy ones too and just love them. 
If you're married, what did you end up putting your rings in? Were there any little details in your wedding that really stood out?
