Paige + John:: The WHITE Wedding

When I met Paige, she was in high school! She was a member of the house party of one of my fave weddings ever – Matt and Andrea – almost a decade ago! I have since produced tons of weddings for this Houston bunch and they are always SO. MUCH. FUN.

Paige was no different, and much like her cousin Andrea, knew exactly what she wanted design wise – a WHITE wedding! I had her back. Every time John or her FAB mom, Ricki, would bring up another accent color – the answer was always NO. Besides our shades of gray – where necessary. Brazos Hall was the perfect industrial backdrop for the elegant and modern look Paige wanted – and I love how it all came together!!!

My favorite details were the inverted bridesmaids bouquets over the head table (thanks for trusting my dream, Merveille) and tossing pasta at the newlyweds (The Pastas) for our exit. Plus Sway catered, so Paige and John had all their culinary dreams come true!

Miss You All!

Balance

I recently was asked to speak on a panel about work-life balance. I thought it was a huge joke until I got the discussion questions and address of the event. I was super flattered to think anyone thought I had any resemblance of balance in my life, and then I was terrified that I had […]

::CONTEST:: For your Valentine!

We have teamed up with our friends at Groovy Groomsmen Gifts for a giveaway for your Valentine!  Rules: Please comment below on the WORST Valentine experience you have ever had.

Kelly and Walt :: Classic with a Twist

Planning and designing a wedding for one of the hottest handbag designers in Texas was a bit intimidating…and then I met her mama, the QUEEN OF DETAILS and it got real. Kelly and Pam are a dynamic duo and they KNOW how to host a fabulous party. We all had the best time making Kelly’s […]

The 16 Courses of Christmas :: Home Sweet Charleston :: Finale

McCrady’s. This was my “16 days of food” on instagram – and it was ALL one meal. The BEST meal and one of the top 3 dining experiences of my life. This is Sean Brock’s new “baby” and while I loved McCrady’s (now McCrady’s Tavern) last time – this new place is indescribable. But, I will […]

Home Sweet Charleston :: Part Two

Still eating… SNOB (Slightly North of Broad). This came highly recommended by my Uncle Gary – and he knows the foods! I was SUPER hungover and could only order my cure-all, a cheeseburger. It was really great and I didn’t feel like death after. That’s all I got – I mean you know the hangovers […]

Home Sweet Charleston :: Part One

This past Christmas, we decided to forgo the required gathering in Corpus Christi and present exchange for a family trip to Charleston. I love food, I love traveling, hence I will travel for food and Charleston is tops when it comes to food. Think of a grown-up New Orleans. You would have to try REALLY […]

Samantha and Brennan: When Napa comes to town!

My love for wine and Napa is not something I am shy about. When I meet clients who are not only as enthusiastic as I am about the wine country – but want their wedding to have the “Napa feel” – I am in HEAVEN! Samantha and Brennan wanted to have their ceremony at Sam’s […]

Where are my F*&^ing Peonies?

The only time my desk has flowers on it is after I work a wedding. And it is usually a leftover bridesmaid bouquet, because my standards are high and I can’t arrange flowers like the pros. The bouquet will then sit there until the stench of decay overpowers that of my Voluspa candle. So, if […]

Stacey and Matt’s Hill Country Wedding

I have a love/hate relationship with doing friend’s weddings. I loooooove being able to show how much they mean to me by planning their big day and bringing their vision to life. The flip side is that I hate all the pressure that I put on myself. When Stacey and Matt got engaged, I was […]
