New Addition Coming in Feburary!

Hello friends!!!  It’s me, Kris!  It’s been quite some time since I last posted, almost 4 months!  Things have been busy over here and I have some exciting news to share!  My husband and I will be expecting our first child next year… a baby boy!!!  Christian Ryan will be making his appearance in Febuary 2015.  We can’t wait to meet the little guy!


Special thanks to my mom for the announcement picture!  Stay tuned for baby updates and news on the nursery, can’t wait to share all the details!



Peony Love

Hi friends! Long time no see! I just wanted to share with you some shots I took of the beautiful peonies I picked up at Trader Joe’s this past weekend. Peonies are hard to come by here in Orange County, CA; they are usually only available for the month of May into the beginning of June.



I think I need to make one more trip into Trader Joe’s and pick up some of these pretties before they’re gone for the year.

Have a fabulous day!



Lila Frances Wedding Hanger

Hi there! Yes, I realize you haven’t heard from me in quite some time, ok about a month but who’s counting? I missed you all and am back to share with you some pictures of my personalized wedding hanger. You might remember this post where I shared my own hanger, and here is another shot from our amazing wedding photographers.  This hanger is something I will hold on to forever!

We’re Featured!

Hello!  Remember me?  I know it’s been super quiet around these parts lately but guess what?  Our wedding pictures were featured on the popular wedding blog, Wedding Wire!  It is a site dedicated to helping engaged couples and future brides plan the wedding of their dreams.  Design wedding websites, plan budget layouts and seating charts, read and write vendor reviews, and create guest lists and inspiration boards- this website has it all!  In fact, I used Wedding Wire for our own wedding website.  After our wedding and honeymoon, I went into my account and was able to write reviews for all the vendors that we used.  


You can check out the full feature here, and maybe leave some love?

Thanks again to Caitlin and Wedding Wire for the feature!

Have a fabulous day, friends!



Floral Reception Decor

Hi guys, it’s me!  It’s been awhile since I’ve seen you all, sorry for the quietness here lately.  As usual, things have been busy! 

One of my favorite details of our wedding would have to be our reception decor.  Flowers were a super important detail to me in our wedding and our floral designer Natalie blew me away with the set up.  We decided to go with two different table centerpiece looks – 8 tables with red roses, peonies, and dahlias in a black square vase and 8 tables of white hydrangea in black vases as well as tall pillars with floating candles.  The end result was so elegant and romantic!  We also added groupings of red and white votives to each table to include more candlelight.

Here’s a look at one of our centerpieces:



Our second centerpiece:

And there you have it, how gorgeous was the set up?  Ryan and I were so impressed, it was beautiful!  As far as table centerpieces go, don’t be afraid to mix it up a little bit!

Have a fabulous day!



Our Sweetheart Table

Hi friends!  Let’s get back into our wedding details because I know you all are dying to see our photos ;)

I knew that I wanted a separate table for Ryan and myself during the wedding with our bridal party scattered throughout our guests.  That way everyone could sit with someone they knew and have a great time at the reception.  Our sweetheart table decor was composed of black vases filled with red roses, peonies, and white hydrangea along with a handful of votives that provided delicate candlelight.  The black striped table cloths were a nice addition to the overall look.

I’d say it all came out pretty amazing, wouldn’t you?  We loved everything!

Have a fabulous day!



Happy 2014!

Hello friends and Happy New Year!  It’s been awhile since I’ve been on the blog due to the holiday craziness.  I’m looking forward to a great year with all of you!

I love sparklers and had to have some for NYE :)


I purchased these star sparklers from TOPS Malibu online.  They have a ton of different ones for any party or celebration; so fun!

I promise to be back soon!  Have a fabulous day!
