I have totally fallen in love - Again!

But this time it is with a photographer. Her name is Misty Lundeen, of A Misty Moment Photography and she has graciously donated her services to our little company for a bridal photo shoot. We will be using these photos on our new website - coming soon! Here is a sneak peak of how the shoot went and some of Misty's work. I can only show some of the details as the bride is getting married on September 20th and we don't want her husband to be seeing too much :)

The Floral arrangements were done by Monti's Flower Market, and if you want their info, you can check out our vendors page on our website Panache Weddings & Events. Monti also does some amazing floral arrangements and we were delighted to work with her as well.

So check back for some more great photos of the bride and our new site launch on October 1st!

Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda...Wedding Day Mistakes

So my partner Liz found this great article on MSN this morning about all the things brides would have done differently while planning their wedding.

I have to say - I just about agree with every one of them, especially the DIY invitations. Certainly DIY projects for your wedding can be the most cost efficient and special as you put all that hard work into them, but you do not realize how much TIME these projects will consume. I suggest to every bride, if you don't have at least 10-12 hours a week to plan your wedding not to mention the extra hours needed for your DIY projects, solicit the help of your bridal party or wedding planner - you will save your sanity.
