Wedding Design - Kate and Drew's Wedding

Kate and Drew's Backyard Wedding
Boulder, Colorado

I posted my photo of Kate and Drew's cake on Monday, but mine just don't do it justice.
I promised a few photos from Jared Wilson Photography and here they are. As usual he did an incredible job! (You can see more on his blog post too ) I love the last photograph of them cutting the cake....it was a little dark and I wasn't sure how he would get the shot without a flash.....he's a miracle worker!
Kate and Drew's wedding had a few little New Orlean's flair's to honor the groom's hometown.
New Orleans appetizers and second line band, and a surprise to the groom a groom's bar with a LSU 3-D tiger's head groom's cake, pralines, cigars, and favorite beer.
The rest was pure garden party wedding!

Photo of the Week- Garden Party Wedding

Photo of the Week- Garden Wedding

This weekend was Kate and Drew's Wedding in her parent's backyard. We got lucky on the weather! It rained during the set up , but was lovely for the rest of the evening. No...we didn't have tent!
I snapped a couple of quick photos of the cake. It was just gorgeous in front of the arch. We added twinkle lights and a few garden roses to the arch for a little romantic touch.

Photo of the Week- The Big Bustle!

Photo of the Week- The Big Bustle

It's that interesting part of the evening...let's lift up the gown and see what we got? It's the hustle to tie the bustle!
(Not a professional photo, just one we snapped on my phone...but there were 3 of us working on the 32 bustles of this gown!)

I always think bustling is so funny...you have 2-3 people under your gown tying you up...don't know why I think it's amusing?

Every wedding gown is different (usually easy to figure out when you've done a few like me), and it always take a bit of time to get your gown bustled so plan a few minutes girls. Just have one of your gals bring you a white wine to enjoy while you wait!

Photo Shoot on Monday

Bride and Bloom Fall Wedding Photo Shoot
I just returned from celebrating my hubby's 40th Birthday at Disneyland with the family. What a great time!

Here's what his office friends did to his office before we left:
Hundreds of personalized Happy Birthday sticky notes covered every square inch of his office, including his roller mat for his chair and floor. Yes, he's still cleaning them up.
It's always wonderful to get away with the family, but you do come back to a VERY BUSY week!
On Monday I'm doing a photo shoot for Bride and Bloom magazine as one of their featured wedding planners. It's going to be a beautiful fall look. Can't wait!
I'll let ya know when it's published! All right...back to work....
