More sweet french-influence details from Etsy. (Full Bloom Cottage, Twirl Vintage, Divine Sweetness, I Love You Both, Red Chair.)

I haven't posted in ages. Working on other projects, started a new job and still doing my bridal work on the side. Throw the family in and that doesn't leave much time for getting creative here! Feels like time to expand my creative work beyond bridal so look for the blog to do some stretching as well.

I am obsessed with these micro-pastries from Etsy seller OiseaudeNim! These are all 1/12 or 1/6 size replicas for a dollhouse but they are the sweetest little works of art.

Completely forgot to post a note about the accessories workshop happening tomorrow at The English Dept. downtown. We'll be making fun flowers and accompaniments to make your wedding day look even more pretty. I will have veils on hand too. Call the shop at 503.224.0724 if you want to come!

midnight collection - fall 2010

I'm adding a bit of glamour for Fall 2010 with my new Midnight Collection. All will be available in my Etsy shop and on my website this coming week. My favorite piece is the one-of-a-kind Ostrich Stole in the top photo. It features a vintage rhinestone starburst pin and there will be a limited quantity of these with other brooches. Fun!

Simply gorgeous photo shoot/gowns from U.K. designer Bruce Oldfield. It is nice to see some sleeves and the cool decolletage coverage in the last photo. I do get a bit sick of strapless all the time and since everyone can't pull off strapless let's hope to see more of this. The lace number in photo two is drop dead gorgeous and beyond elegant.

sarah + james

Charming details abound at this spring Minnesota wedding. Lovely idea to have handmade flags for the guests to wave on your departure from the church instead of throwing something that will have to be cleaned up by someone! It sounds weird but I adore the blue door with scroll details. Makes me want to buy a bolt of silk in that color and go crazy designing!! (photos: Adrienne Page)

elizebeth fillmore

Beautiful gowns from Elizabeth Fillmore's new collection. The thing I love most about Elizabeth is that her dresses always stand out as a beacon of elegance no matter what the current trends. She manages to stay fresh and current without overdoing it.

robin's egg + red

I am LOVING this color combo from a wedding that photographer Victor Sizemore shot at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel. Fresh and fun!

I'm really loving all of the black details on the runway recently and it has even inspired me to add some black pieces to my collection. Coming soon! (photos:
