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!

Our Wedding Ceremony Chalkboard

Hello friends!  Sorry it’s been a bit quiet on the blog lately.  I don’t want to make excuses but my adorable 2 month old (almost 3!) nephew is in town from the east coast and I’ve been trying to hang with him.  Also, I’ve started up piano lessons again!  It’s been fun!  But let’s get back to the wedding stuff…

I’ve talked about chalkboard details in weddings before and how much I love them.  I wanted to do a wedding chalkboard for our ceremony instead of the paper ones that you see at most weddings.  I found my inspiration from this wedding:

Pretty, right?  Our ceremony sign was designed by our wedding planner, Liz from Eventfully Beautiful.

Loved the way it turned out and it saved a lot of paper!  There are alternatives out there instead of using paper programs 🙂

Wooden Wedding Cake Toppers

Hi guys!  I came across these adorable wooden cake toppers while browsing on Etsy and had to have some! I placed an order for our one year wedding anniversary which we celebrated this past Saturday. Charlene from Creative ButterflyXOX creates the cutest wooden cake toppers and they are completely personalized! Not only did I have Ryan and myself made, but our little Maltese pup Sophie too!




I sent our wedding pictures and close up shots of Sophie and Charlene was able to make us into little wooden people.  They look just like us!

Make sure you check out Charlene’s shop here.

Have a fabulous day!



Our Wedding Party

Hello!  Let me just start off by saying we had the most amazing wedding party.  Not only were they family and friends who we love dearly but they looked amazing as well!  Ryan and I chose 6 girls and guys to stand by us on our wedding day.  I had my 2 sisters, sister in law, and 3 best friends and Ryan had his brother, my brother, and 4 of his closest friends.  The wedding party shots are some of my favorite out of the whole wedding, everyone looked so sharp!

My bridesmaids purchased their dresses at Alfred Angelo and David’s Bridal.  The groomsmen’s tuxes were provided by Friar Tux.  I absolutely loved how the overall look came together, exactly what I envisioned!  It will be our one year anniversary on November 2, 2013… crazy how fast the time has gone by. 

Have a fabulous day, friends!




Customized Bridesmaid Hangers

Good morning friends!  Sorry last week was a bit quiet around here on the blog but I have something extra special for you today – bridesmaid hangers!  I wanted to get my girls something a little different and something custom to each bridesmaid.  The Hanger Girl on Etsy designs these customized name hangers in bulk, which was great for me since I needed six.  They came out super cute and all the girls loved them!

Have a fabulous day!



The Island Hotel, Newport Beach

Ryan and I were married on a Friday and left for our honeymoon the following Monday.  The night of the wedding, I wanted to stay somewhere local and fairly close to our venue so we chose the Island Hotel in Newport Beach.  We had an amazing experience here!  The night before the wedding, my maid of honor and I stayed in their Island Corner Suite and it was fabulous!  Plenty of room to get ready right before the wedding and the perfect place for photos.  We had views of Fashion Island and the Pacific coastline.

Since we were not suppose to arrive at our venue until 3pm, it was nice to have a place to get ready with all my bridesmaids and just relax.  The Island Hotel provides amazing customer service, amenities, and I can’t wait to visit them again.

Have a fabulous day!



Wedding Menu Detail

Good morning!  I can’t believe it’s already June and the official first day of summer is quickly approaching!  It has been 7 months since our wedding, but who’s counting?

When I first began doing my research on menus for our wedding, I was contemplating not having a paper menu at all but instead making a large chalkboard menu, similar to this.  As much as I love that, I realized it might be more practical for each guest to have a menu in front of them.  We chose to do paper menus that had the same theme as our invitations and place cards.

Everything matched and I was happy with that!  The menus were pretty, but I felt like they needed a little something extra.  That’s where the bling came in.  I purchased these at Hobby Lobby on sale, and they worked perfectly!  Here’s the end result:

I think even that simple little red rhinestone made the menus that much better and completed our black, white, and red theme.  And I had fun putting them together 🙂

Have a fabulous day!



Our Wedding Album is Here!

Hi friends!  Guess what?  Not only did we receive our GORGEOUS wedding album from our photographers, but we also received all our wedding photos!!!  Stay tuned for tons of pretty pics and details from our big day.

Our album came from West Coast Albums and the quality is amazing!  The book couldn’t have been made without the oh so talented Paul and Leanne Sargeant of Sargeant Photography.  Here are a few of the pages:










Best Day Ever!  There will be many, many more pictures coming your way in the next few months; I can’t wait to share how all the planning came together!

Have a fabulous day!



Our Wedding Album Cover

Hi friends!  I have yet another sneak peek for you… our wedding album cover!  Still waiting to receive it but I thought I’d share the cover with you since I have that image.  I’m hoping it will be arriving in the next few weeks!

I think the color of the album goes well with the background of the picture, don’t you think?  I know Ryan and I will cherish it forever 🙂
