We have a special guest blogger today. Melody from Edgar Martin is job shadowing me because she would like to one day be a wedding planner. 

Here’s a little about Melody:

Bride Wars

I finally saw Bride Wars the other day. All I can say is THREE MONTHS!! Only with a wonderful wedding planner I suppose ; ) 

Besides making any bride thankful for a wonderful group of bridesmaids (who wants to pay pay/beg for a maid of honor?), this movie also had a bit of real wedding eye candy. The picture frames by wedding planner Marion St. Claire’s desk scrolled through real wedding photos by the talented Christian Oth Studios. Check out the Web site for more inspiration. Enjoy!

Today’s inspiration is a fresh new color palette for spring and summer. With just the right shade of rich greens and a bright pop of orange, I am loving this new theme and can’t wait to work it. Enjoy!

Sorry for my absence! I have been recovering from a cold. The down time has given me plenty of time to check out new blogs though. I love finding wedding inspiration from everyday images. It takes more creativity to figure out how to incorporate your inspiration into a specific design. Well I think I found the mother-load of inspiration. This is Glamorous has some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen I just had to share them. Enjoy!
