Party LOVE...A post Wedding, Wedding

2 weeks without internet.
2 weeks without internet at home was really testing {and expensive on my phone bill}. But it was also kind of nice. To actually watch a show without the ever-present laptop, to sit and talk for longer at the dinner table or to simply unwind at the end of the day with no form of technological device in sight.

That being said, it is fixed {and I really am happy about it!} and we are back into it with a bang. Tonight I thought I would share some photos from our Non-New York wedding {the wonderful party we threw for all of our friends and family who couldn't make it to the NY nuptials} with you all.

We really wanted everyone to feel like they hadn't missed anything by not being in NY and at the same time we wanted a relaxed and super fun night. We held the party at my parents house {which really is a venue in its own right} and so had free reign to do whatever we pleased in terms of decoration, theming, food...every detail really. We had our wedding video set to music and playing on a loop on the big screen, we had all of our professional photos printed and attached to balloons and we had our vows printed up onto big posters so that everyone could see play-by-play how the day went! We also had our good friend replicate our Red Velvet Wedding Cake for everyone to taste and the menu was in the vein of a NY Deli (pulled pork, beef and chicken rolls with crisps, pickles and all the toppings). And finally my wonderful mum and husband helped me make a life-size NY snow globe for the guests to pop their heads into...
Ps. my uber talented mum painted those giant peonies onto the backdrop as a surprise for us...she really is too much!

Paper LOVE...All Grown Up

We recently had the pleasure of making some invitations for a gorgeous girl who is turning 21. They were delighted with how they turned out, and so were we, so much so that we just simply had to share them with you!

She had some photos that she wanted to include somewhere in the design...and they were such cute photos, how could we not. So we hand illustrated a frame and a banner for her gorgeous kindy photo and added the other to the envelope as a little sneak peek for the guests...

Cute right? Yes? YES!

Wedding LOVE...An elegant sports themed extravaganza

Excuse me while I try to work out what day it is! That long weekend sure has us a little out of whack! So we missed Friday and Monday but here we go with a real doozy!

In December I had the privilege of helping with a wedding for one of my absolute favourite people in the world. You may remember this gorgeous couple from here and here and here. I had been working with this gorgeous bride almost from the day of her engagement to plan her beautiful day. She was easy and so laid back about the whole wedding that it was a breeze to help with. She had just one small work the grooms only requirement into the day. Easy I thought 'one requirement will be simple!'. What was this request? Quite simple really...that the table names be his favourite sporting teams! Oh...

So the day had finally arrived and it went a little something like the flower markets for 6am, venue by 8am to set up, Bride's house by 10:30am for hair and make-up and photos, chapel for 2pm to dress the pews, back to the bride for final photos and a quick sip before her walk down the aisle...and they're married!! It was a perfect {& hot} summers day for these 2 lovebirds to exchange their vows in front of all their friends and family...
It turns out the Groom {and even the bride and all their friends} were happy with the final sports themed result!!

What a gorgeous happily married couple!
