Hi Everyone! Coming to you all on a Thursday this week, but don't you worry, Friday is jussst around the corner! :-) For today, rest your eyes on a color combo that is energizing enough to help you make it through the week, yet calm enough to ease you into a restful holiday weekend! This soft yellow added to a dreamy barely-there pink makes the most beautiful summer combo! Add Khaki as a neutral and then things really pop! The result is simple, pure, sunny-day romance... Enjoy! :-)

Tuesday, June, 28, 2011  |  Inspiration

Truth be told. I've always been such a girl. Sure, I tried to play with the boys, show them I could hold my own in kickball... but yes, the things that make my heart pound are trimmed in ruffles and lace. Anything thats a little bit too frilly and reminds me of a big, fluffy pink peony- it immediately has my heart (...and also my wallet.)  :-)
Well anyway, all this girliness brings me to today's post... Inspired by the tea time my grandmother used to have every afternoon at 4:00. These tea times were complete with pretty china tea cups and saucers, cookies, homemade swedish coffee bread... everything. And we even had it outside on the porch sometimes. A subtle, old fashioned, tea party theme is ideal for a late afternoon garden wedding, in my mind. But obviously, so many other venues would work as well. It's what you want to do with it that matters! So sit back with some earl grey, and look to be inspired... which one of these ideas would you use? How would you add your personal touch? I'm excited to see what you think!

Happy Monday Guys and I hope you all had a wonderful weekend....I'm so excited about our featured couple today, Heidi & Marshall....you see, I featured their sweet engagement shoot earlier this year and today, I have the pleasure of sharing their wedding story with you!  Their wedding took place during Memorial Day weekend and was stocked full of DIY, personal details!  Heidi and Marshall got married at the Post Oak Lodge in Tulsa, Oklahoma surrounded by their families and friends. Among Heidi's many personal touches were custom TOMs shoes which Marshall drew the little dinosaurs on while they were dating.....vintage eyeglasses (as Marshall is in optometry school).....donuts and pies......and a glow stick send off!  Capturing all the beautiful moments and details are Amanda and Chris of Amanda Watson Photography......their work is so beautiful and I'm so happy to have them stop by the cafe today.  Let's check out all the sweet details......Enjoy!!!

Friday, June, 24, 2011  |  Color Palettes

Good Morning again, loves! It's finally Friday and you know what that means?! It's the first official weekend of summer! As you're all getting ready to head out to the pool, beach, or basically anywhere else that is slam packed with other people, take a moment to rest your eyes on a perfect therapeutic color palette. As the summer is here, I will be finding some brighter colors to inspire us in the sunshine, but this week has been crazy and all I have been able to think of is getting a good night of sleep! So I decided on the calming elements of lavender. This popular, light, dusty shade of purple is very versatile. It can be made playful for a daytime wedding by adding shades of yellow, or dressed up with deeper shades of purple, such as plum. For today, I wanted to stick with the organic, natural-ness of it. So I chose to pair it with sage & mauve, both equally calm colors. 
So before you start checking off your busy schedule, relax! After all, it is Friday! Dab a bit of lavender-scented oil on your wrists, and let the visual stress-relief begin! 
~ A
