As Seen on The Perfect Palette: Pantone Color of the Year: Rose Quartz & Serenity

Here’s a sneak peek at the Pantone Color of the Year photo shoot I was part of that was published on The Perfect Palette. Inspired by love in movement, with overtures of ballet and brimming over with romance, these photos are absolutely breathtaking!

I did some whimsical wedding envelope calligraphy for this shoot that reflected the ethereal nature of the shoot.

Sustainable Wedding Vancouver: Miranda + Brian


Today my beautiful cousin Miranda and her beau decided to tie the knot and eloped in front of an intimate group of family and friends. People basically had 24 hours notice and I’m so grateful to have been able to rearrange my schedule and drive up Vancouver to witness their vows. 

True to her sustainable fashion personal philosophies, she bought nothing — no decorations, no ring, no flowers, no big white wedding dress (she wore her grad dress). The only money spent was on a haircut. Bonus points for grabbing the groom’s butt during her wedding vows. Congratulations, Miranda and Brian! 

I was happy to lend my phone for a selfie of the newlyweds!

So who says your wedding has to cost a fortune, take years to plan, and take every ounce of your sanity and attention span? What a lovely alternative!

Check out Miranda’s blog Style By Fire and her article at Huffington Post about weddings, “How to Plan a Wedding When You Don’t Believe in Having One”.

Breaking Dawn: Bella’s Wedding Dress is Beautiful

I have a confession to make. I have a weakness for Twilight as evidenced by the fact that I just got home from seeing an advanced viewing of Breaking Dawn (which is far better than a midnight viewing, I assure you).

Can I just tell you that Bella’s wedding dress is beautiful? It is a simple V-neck Carolina Herrera dress with a structured bodice, sleek silhouette, beautiful lace detailing and a row of buttons down the back for a vintage flavor.

That gaudy wedding engagement ring aside, the wedding scenes were exquisite.

Are you planning on seeing Breaking Dawn? Thoughts on Bella’s dress?

Royal Wedding: And the Bride Wore Alexander McQueen

We’ve all been waiting for Kate Middleton’s wedding dress to be unveiled and today it was, in all its splendor. The bride wore an Alexander McQueen gown with a gorgeous lace overlay, designed by Sarah Burton. How refreshing it is to see such a classy gown.

  • Something borrowed: Cartier tiara from Queen Elizabeth II
  • Something blue: Blue ribbon was woven into the interior of the gown. Also, Princess Diana’s sapphire engagement ring

Here are some of our favorite photos from the Royal Wedding.

Wedding Wednesday: Rosalind and Blake’s Australian Wedding

Today on The Bride’s Cafe, I fell in love with Rosalind and Blake’s Australian wedding, captured by Sugar Love Weddings. It truly is delicious.

Rosalind’s gown is a custom couture gown by Hanna Couture. As she tells The Brides Cafe, “I knew I wanted something with a restrained, vintage feel and that I didn’t want any floral, shiny satin, beading or sequins.”

This wedding is practically the epitome of a vintage wedding. Isn’t it glorious?
