Some may say I blog too much, but the thing is, when I get send sooo much fabulousness it’s a crime not to share. Without all these posts I would go to blogger’s prison.
Just one more for tonight then, and I’m ending the day with one of my favourites. – Tinywater. I love them. Caroline even tweeted me the proofs of this session before blogging them as she knew I’d go crazy for them..and hurrah she was right!
I also recieved a lovely email from the Bride, Sandra who was more than happy to share some of the details of their glorious day..

What made our wedding so special to us, was that we were able to share it with the people we love most. They accompanied us to almost every meeting, from tastings to linens, and really participated. Since we have been together since Junior year of high school (11 years!), everyone was just so happy for us, and it showed.
For the decor–if you can’t tell already, we LOVE color. So turquoise, lime green, and papaya made up our color scheme. My sister is a graphic designer, and she helped us with all things paper. This included our signature drink signs, our cookie buffet welcome, our favor labels and escort cards, and our programs and invitations! She is truly a genius.
We wanted to keep the ceremony traditional, and since it was in a historic mission, and I have Spanish roots, I went with a scalloped lace gown, and a mantilla veil. I feel it really complemented the decor and felt very authentic.
I think the most “us” thing about our wedding, besides the colors and the ceremony, was the cookie buffet. Chad and I are not huge fans of cake, but we LOVE cookies and milk. So after much logistical planning, we created a cookie buffet for dessert instead of cake, and did a cookie cutting and milk toast instead of cake cutting and champagne toast. A little different– but totally us!
For their wedding photographs, clicky here, here & here! – but I’m all about these amazingly bright, colourful, fabulous ‘newlywed session’ shots.
Seriously Caroline & Dan…I need to you come to London so you can take photographs of meeee!
Until tomorrow my darlings xx
