Paris Is Calling

I love this post by Classis Bride. The Paris apartment of gown designer, Mr. Elie Saab. My friends Helen, John, Stephanie and Bob are headed to Paris this spring for their yearly stay at their apartment in Paris; I know it will inspire them, as it does me. I look forward to posting the photos sent over by the foursome of “fashion on the streets of Paris”.

Beautiful Details by Maihar Design

There are so many beautiful embellishments out there in the wedding world, it’s hard for me to keep up with all the eye candy.

I was thrilled to receive an email from Ashleigh of Maihar Design directing me to her site and products.  Ashleigh and her sister Melanie are the creators of the most gorgeous ring bearer pillows, flower wands and hair petals. These are one of a kind beautiful details. Maihar adds a modern twist to the beauty and tradition of the ring pillow using lightweight linen, embroidered silk and beautiful high quality ribbons.

I can hardly wait to see a little ring bearer walking down the isle with one of these pillows and flower girls carrying the wands at one of our Sedona Weddings. Style Me Pretty featured beautiful little flower girls with these wands.  Flower girl photos by Carla Ten Eyck

Visit their blog and Etsy shop to see all of  the inspiration these ladies offer.

A Good Ending to 2009

This is our last wedding in December 2009. Our beautiful couple decided to elope to the serenity of Sedona after their guest list reached somewhere near 600. They were very happy to enjoy the moment, take in the beauty and peace of a winter at Red Rock Crossing and share the vows they wrote to each other. They will celebrate in the spring with a grand party for friends and family in their new home.

Congratulations Tara and Brent. Images by Pamela Duffy. Wedding by Van Damme Weddings Flowers by Ken Heflin at Events by Showstoppers and music provided by Magdalena Wolf.
