Creating the sweetest wedding doesn't revolve solely around the dessert table. It is the added touches that make the wedding guests feel a part of something really special.
Jeff and I returned to Richmond the third weekend of April. This would be our second visit to Mankin Mansion and our first planning session with Brielle, Alex, and the mansion's wedding planner, Katie.
It was hot...88 degrees hot...for our first planning session in Richmond. Brielle and I always love a little Proseco to cool us down. We decided to go to Lunch or Supper for a little lunch and cool down.
In addition to wedding planning, prop design and production are in full swing for the wedding. I am not a huge Pinterest person. Honestly, I would love to be a huge Pinterest person but that requires time. In my designer world, I really have no extra time. All of my time is spent conceptualizing and creating original ideas. What I love about planning a wedding with Brielle is, when we come up with a unique idea we execute its concept and construction as a team.
Of course we had to talk about something real sweet for this blog. Let's talk about the wedding cake.
One of the things I love most about my profession is the opportunity to meet other creatives in the bridal industry. So many are masters in their fields. Recently I connected with Bombshell Graphics. Their specialty craft blew me away.
Last month, Kryssy came to Headpiece.com with a specific vision for her wedding veil. She looked everywhere, including the big name bridal salons, and wasn't able to find what she was looking for. We were able to customize her vision and give her exactly what she wanted. We instantly bonded and I asked her what her profession was. It was so interesting it prompted me to visit her at Bombshell Graphics in Fairfield, NJ.
So this month's blog ends knowing that Headpiece.com will have a presence at Kryssy and Ken's wedding in June...and Bombshell Graphics will have a presence at Brielle and Alex's wedding in October. Could it be "six degrees of separation"?
Next month on the Fourteenth:
