Bridesmaid's Gift/Friendship Ring - LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Okay - I am on a roll what can I say! I was watching "Get Married" last night on Lifetime and towards the end of the show they always plug a new "find" - and well.....this one made me run right to my laptop!! Cha Cha Bella has these beautiful rings, hand made with Swarovski Crystals, and available in any color or color combination, you can even customize them. They come beautifully wrapped with a wonderful saying about friendship. What a great gift for your bridesmaids or your dearest girlfriends, mom, sisters, etc. Not to mention they are stunning and have "BLING" all over it!! What girl wouldn't want one of these??

Guest Books and so much more!

What a great find, thanks to one of my clients! Jinny Bick Bookbinding is a website you must check out! Everyone is always asking me where to find a beautiful guest book. And I have seen several at Hallmark, online, but this website has something more beautiful, not to mention you can personalize them. They also have a book that I adore "Twelve Ways To Say I Love You" - I think every Bride and Groom should buy this book, fill them out, and exchange them with one another on your wedding day. When you get a spare moment, click on the link above!

Congratulations Dr. & Mrs. John & Kathleen Linn

It was a beautiful Spring day this past Saturday, the sun couldn't have shined any brighter for John & Katie!
Katie & John were married at St. Mark's Catholic church near Bradley University, as Katie's father walked her to the church, her tears began to fall. Her father was trying to calm her by talking baseball, but the tears of happiness kept coming. Katie was one of the most beautiful brides I have ever laid eyes on. Her dress was exquisite, with pleating and covered buttons all the way down the back. Her hair was all pinned back with a cathedral length vail and a flower pined off to the side. She was breathtaking..... and to see John see her for the first time as she walked down the aisle to him, made all of us cry!
The reception was held at the Hotel Pere Marquette with gorgeous displays of orange and pink flowers by Gregg's. The arrangements were stunning, from pink vases to tall clear vases full of hydrangeas, curly willow, and Gerber daisies. Chocolate brown satin runners on all the Menu cards were in each napkin and tied with a pink satin bow. And for a favor - THUMBPRINT cookies from Trefzger's Bakery....YUMMY!!
Their wedding cake was a Chocolate Gonache cake, also from Trefzger's..and it was trimmed in pink ribbon- you could smell the Gonache frosting as walked up upon the cake - it was spectacular!!!
Dave and the Dynamics had everyone up and dancing all night, I have to say a Band can really get a party started.....but can also keep it from ending! haha

I wish all the best to Katie and John, they were so wonderful to work with. I will miss Katie a lot, she is one of those people that you just love being around. She is as beautiful inside as she is outside.
