~DIY Table Numbers~

I can't wait to have a bride try this out!
SUPER cheap and easy.

All you need: a fun girl's night in with wine . . . and save the bottles!
Chalkboard paint


Great idea!
(and affordable= happy bride)

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! I had a meeting with a new couple for an October wedding (Woooo hoooo!), and just had a date night with the hubby.  Yesterday we went on a long walk with our 3 lil Westies. 
Tomorrow: the horse races! Gotta love summer weekends!

~Real Wedding: Nick and Chrystl~

Awww how stunning is this wedding?!

I love the simple colro choice, but it makes it so classy not being too busy.
Sometimes it's hard for me to tone down colors, decor, etc.

I should try the cleanand simple look!

Chk it out:

My fave details: the cake is gorgeous, as well as the stand.

Also the plates are gorgeous with the ball rims.

~Wedding Whirlwind Weekend!~


What a fun weekend we had, but oh how tired my feet are.

Friday was Megan and Justin's wedding,
it was absolutely stunning! The sunshine came out for a perfect 78 degree day, and we had a magnificent view of the Seattle skyline for the ceremony as well as an amazing sunset over Puget Sound for the reception.  Amazing night! Yummy food. Photos to come soon 
(M Kippen Photography said that the pics are their best yet!!!!)

Saturday was Brooke and Andy's wedding.  
Another crazy whirlwind of fun.  I worked 14 hours! But seriously this couple is amazing as well, the ideal picturesque "American sporty couple".  I helped Brooke and her 8 bridesmaids with so many crafts and DIY details for this I am ecstatic for the pics from 
We had a fun night of dancing, dancing, and dancing. Including a dance from the bride's sorority, a cute dramatic dance by the couple to Meatloaf's "I Would Do Anything for Love", and a college fight song.  SO Much fun.

So once I re-coup, soak my feet, and catch up on sleep I will be back to the normal wedding inspirations post.

For now here is this gem of a photo:

Most of you can pretty much tell that I am a heels gal. 

Found these haute mama's on Zappos . . .
And instantly fell in love.
Wouldn't they be the perfect wedding shoes?!

~Congrats Kyle and Corey!~

Yesterday was an amazing day!
Not only did we get sunshine just in time to move their ceremony outside with the amazing view of the Marina.
The decor/ lounge area was a hit.
I heard from a few guests it was the best wedding they have been to (score!)
They were absolutely adorable.
Corey was breathtaking in her Vera Wang gown.
I met some fabulous wedding vendors.
Got a few blisters on the feet.
Worked for 13 hours.
But everything was perfect.

Congrats to Corey and Kyle!!! 
It was such a pleasure meeting you both.
Corey I loved our coffee meetings and craft time together.
I'm kind of sad it's over!
I know we'll remain friends after this.
Best wishes!!!

Pssst as soon as I get photos I will be plastering them all over my blog and website.
For now:

Some fun pictures from DigiPhotoBooth:

~My Send off Signs!~

I am so excited for this detail . . .
One of my lovely brides is going to have a fun exit from her ceremony!
Inspired by:

We are making our own!
I found some free vectors online and designed these:


Which one/font do you like the best?

We will print them off, put it on a stick, and add ribbon.

Can't wait for the exit photos!!!

~Blog Love~

Why happy Saturday to you all!

And what a gorgeous day it is here.
The hubby and I just got back from kayaking on Lake Washington,
Sooooo fun!

Anywho . . .
Just a quick post today . . . I wanted to share some amazing blog love I received on my 
the other day.  

"Tammy, I just wanted to let you know that even though I am not even close to getting married (no ring yet!) I look at your ideas every day and I am truly inspired! My wedding is slowing forming in my head with many of the ideas you post! Thank you for filling my head with beautiful things to distract me from work and everyday life" 

That just made my day! 
I mean of course I love to blog regardless, but it's a perk that I can do what I love AND hopefully inspire others!

Thanks for the sweet words dear. For serious!

I hope you all are enjoying your summer weekend! 
I am working away on my 3 upcoming weddings, so very excited!!!
