The Next Wedding

I'm not going to have another marriage but this weeding makes me want another wedding. I love the romantic color scheme and the ultra modern venue. I was torn between backyard wedding and modern rooftop, backyard won. I still hope to have a rooftop party, I hope it looks like this. Found on Stylemepretty.

Wedding Hangers

Search personalized hangers on and you'll discover a wide variety of special hangers. I think the detail is perfect for the hanging dress shop.

Wedding Gift Ideas

We received some very thoughtful and personalized gifts for our wedding. I wanted to share three with you. #1- Frame the invitation they sent you. Julia did this for us (she also designed the invitations) but it was so meaningful to us.
#2 Cookbook with ingredients. Kirby and Christina were so creative in purchasing a cookbook (best Martha Stewart cookbook) and then they picked out a recipe (stuffed artichokes) and purchased ingredients from a great farmers market in NYC. It was so creative, special and fun! I'm going to use this idea!
#3 Custom Couple Print. Michelle (best friend and rockstar day of wedding planner) went above in beyond by hiring an artist ( to create a custom picture of us and had it framed to fit our decor. She didn't plan it but this outfit in the print I bought on our engagement trip in Greece, so meaningful to us. Even Mika's collar is special because that was her first collar. It is a great gift for an occasion.

Children Allowed

Children were absolutely invited to our wedding. We set up a children's table with personalized activity books. It appears though they had the most fun turning corn hole into a whole new game and showing the other guests how to use the photobooth.

Fabulous Flowers

Flowers are truly not my thing. I know nothing about them and had to take a crash course to have flowers at the wedding. I originally didn't want any including bouquets but I was out voted and glad because they were a nice touch. The flowers were very simple and only used for the ceremony, bridal party and cake. My men's flowers were billy balls, I found them on a blog and had to have them. The girls bouquets were rananculus and peonies. I made fabric flowers for the reception chairs and tables. I found my florist from a friend, she does it as a side job and grew all of the flowers specifically for the wedding, all organic. To save on cost on flowers, we spaced flowers between hanging glass globes that were made by the mother's mosaic group. They were also used at my sister's wedding and on their way to another wedding. I am so pleased they will be used again. I had the idea from a wedding blog and they truly ran with it.

My Good Lookin' Man

We went super affordable to look good for the wedding. My groom and groomsmen bought suits from Macy's on clearance for $185. More affordable then renting and they can wear it again and again. We went with a lightweight texture since it was so hot outside. The ties were purchased for $15 on and they each wore simple white button ups and black shoes. Their socks were argyle, also from Macy's. I think they look very hot!
