Sarah + Travis :: Color Me In Love

I LOVE this entire family SO much! Sarah, whose sweet smile and energy are contagious; Travis, the groom – who we all lovingly referred to as Groomzilla, GZ for short – to Sarah’s fun-loving parents, David and Shirley. Every invitee knew THIS would be a P.A.R.T.Y. And thanks to Sarah’s phenomenal taste (seriously, always dressed to perfection with the BEST accessories) you know it would also be total eye candy.

Wild Onion Ranch set the scene for the magical day, and served as an ideal backdrop for the evening. The meticulous landscaping and each built-in detail made everyone feel right at home. My favorite things were the sign-in painting that GZ painted and everyone signed (talk about a priceless piece of art!!!) and all the “happy” floral from Wendee Sawran.

Sarah and Travis dined and danced under the stars, and then went off on their married way with a sparkling send off. And the fabulous husband and wife team, The Nichols, captured it all!

We need a play date ASAP guys – for David and Stix, and for our little ladies.

It’s a ME Party

24 hours….do you know what 24 hours of ME time can do for your psyche and spirit?!?!? A LOT! I recently took 24 hours off of “life” and checked in to South Congress Hotel. I needed a creative space and some uninterrupted time to get the blog PERFECT and launched! I needed to write, be […]

Turning 40 in Turks and Caicos

I had always looked forward to 40 – I deemed it the decade that I would get to enjoy all the hard work of my 30’s. I decided one of my celebrations (I need several) would be a girls getaway with my ladies! So off to Turks and Caicos we went! We rented a killer […]

How I Start My Day

I am a true believer on the more mindfulness you put into starting your day, the more you will get out of the day. But when you “start” your day can be relative. And when I accepted that I could “start” my day at any time of the day a big fat bright light bulb […]

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, […]


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. For example, on a memorable Valentine’s Day in college – I surprised my Valentine with a basket full of homemade treats and found him in bed […]

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 […]
