I love it when a wedding is personalized to fit the essence of who you are as a couple. Who says the wedding needs to fit into a box and be like everyone else? God made you to be who you are—embrace that!

I ran across a wedding program the other day and as I opened it, I instantly loved the program. Why? Because they personalized it and made it theirs. The bride placed a poem in it that she wrote as a young 13 year old girl. It was so completely precious, it didn’t matter that I had never met the bride; I felt like I touched a piece of her heart. Weddings are the essence of your heart and your love that the Lord has put inside each of you. It’s raw and beautiful and when you see a glimpse of it you are drawn into the beauty of it.

So make your wedding, yours. Embrace who you are! I can guarantee it is a beautiful thing!

What a crazy spring it has been! Some days I feel like I just cannot catch my breath! I have always been the type of person that thrives on being busy though so even if I complain, secretly I love it! =)

I wanted to show you one more picture that Suwanee took of my love and I. I love the essence of the photo–whimsical & romantic.018p8036bw

While in Spokane, WA, the AMAZING Suwanee Lennon Photography took some profile shots for me!! Check some of them out and let me know your favorites! =)

the importance of skin care…

In all the planning for your beautiful day don’t forget to put time into taking care of you!  Here are some tips for you to follow!

Drink water, rest, and drink more water. I know the time leading up to the wedding can be a very hectic258921178_8f17a0ad43_m and stressful time, but your skin truly reflects what’s going on inside your body, and any stress or worry will show on your face if you let it! I cannot stress the importance of staying extra-hydrated during this time as well…this will help your complexion glow, and will also get rid of under eye circles.  I also recommend that brides cut out sugar, processed foods, and load up on leafy greens, berries, citrus fruits, fish and green tea in the weeks leading up to the wedding. These essential vitamins and anti-oxidants are a crucial part in good skin care, and your body will thank you, too!

Embrace exfoliation! This is an important step in skin care that lots of women forget about. I recommend that you exfoliate your face twice a week for the month leading up to the wedding, this will slough off dead skin cells, aid in the skin cell turnover process, and reveal a beautiful new layer of skin that will glow on your wedding day. It also provides a wonderful canvas for makeup application. With that being said, please do not get a facial the day of the wedding! Your skin needs a few days to “heal”, meaning it is possible and normal for your face to be a little red and puffy the day of your facial, and that’s not something you want on your wedding day! Also, if you get extractions during your facial, make sure to do that at least 2 weeks prior. 

Real Wedding:Darick & Kelie

March 22, 2009 at 2:15 pm | Posted in weddings | 1 Comment

Darick and Kelie were married at Liberty Christian Center on Saturday, March 21. Spring just emerging, the weather was perfect for a wedding! I was honored to be a part of this beautiful day for this fun couple!! Recently, Kelie’s dad passed away and after a very hard year, it was time to have a reason to celebrate! Kelie’s mom gave her away and the love I witnessed between them moments before heading down the aisle was indeed a priceless moment.

Darick and Kelie-may your love continue to blossom as you continue on this wonderful journey!

burst of color:yellow!

The colors you choose says a lot about you. Yellows are associated with cheerful, gentleness, tenderness and joy. And I can’t get yellows out of my head–maybe it’s because yellow is associated with spring and yellows are a perfect fit with early Spring weddings when the world is just about to burst into color. It’s perfect for the couple who is cheerful and wants to celebrate, but in a more gentle, refined way. Yellows are also perfect to mix with other spring colors, such as light sky-blues, or moss-greens.

spring shine your face!

Anyone else desperately ready for spring?! The weather teases me with warmth one day and snow the very next but my heart is already in spring! Daily I dream about my pink tulips emerging from the soil and the sun on my face! In my dreaming about spring and flowers I found this beautiful centerpiece I thought I would share with all my spring brides. =)

How perfect is this for spring? I absolutely love it! =)
