Book Lovers Wedding Ideas

Book Lovers Wedding Ideas

I have been a book lovers since I was able to read. My parents raised me with this passion, my favorite books as a kid being The Babysitters Club and the Anne of Green Gables series. As an adult I do not always have the time to read, but when I do it is usually a book that is fantastical in nature. Harry Potter, the Mortal Instruments series or anything written by Kelley Armstrong. I also love comic books and find them to be my “light” reading.

Book Lovers Wedding

A great way to add a personal touch to your wedding, if you are book lovers, is to incorporate books into everything. It doesn’t have to be cheesy, it can be quite pretty and on-trend. I would like to thank the renegades for blazing the trail because using paper and jewels in your floral arrangements and table centers is no longer “weird”. The theme can event go in a vintage direction and not lose its classy touch. How? Lets dig in!

Styled Wedding Shoot: Shades of Yellow

Styled Wedding Shoot: Shades of Yellow

Shades of Yellow Styled Shoot

Another styled wedding post? Why yes! Last week I posted images from a Lisa Frank inspire shoot, and this one is from the same group of creatives, just a different look. It reminds me of a summer day, bright pops of yellow, and greens. Sparkly gold pillows and a gorgeous model. You can almost taste the lemonade that had been served at the reception.

About the Shoot

I mean there is even a lemon tree on the table! The table setting has fun green plates and clear chargers with gold trim. The chairs are clear, so as to not fight with the table, and the yellow candle holders are dark enough to add contrast to the brighter elements on the table. It’s so bright and fun, thus my heart starts to explode. Yes, I am completely enthusiastic about this set up!

The invitations and paper goods are bright and have complimentary colors to add some variety. I love the dots, as it continues the whimsical theme and makes you feel happy! Topping it off, the model is gorgeous in her dress “Shelby”. The soft white of the dress is contrasted by her edgy tattoos. I love the spicy edge as a compliment to all the softness.

Food Review: Snooze AM Eatery

Food Review: Snooze AM Eatery

If you have ever looked at my Instagram, you would know I am a huuuuge foodie. I love going to new restaurants, trying new takes on my favorite foods and taking copious pictures! So when I found out about Snooze restaurant, I knew I had to go. They have seasonal pancakes and other bites.

Weekends are not the time to go, by the way, everyone and their cousin go, and the wait is an hour long. Thus, the decision to go on a Wednesday! The decorations are vintage 1950’s, with old school star shapes and bright colors.

The Food

My eyes were larger than my stomach, so I wound up ordering more food than I could finish. I ordered two different eggs benedict {you can mix and match}, and the peanut butter cup pancakes. The pancakes are crazy delicious! They aren’t dense, just light and fluffy. The benedicts have a strong bernaise sauce on them, so be prepared for them to punch your tastebuds in the face. The eggs were cooked perfectly, when I cut into the egg the yolk it was the perfect consistency. The best part about the food though were the hashbrowns. They look like they had been baked into a can shape, were nice and crispy and full of flavor! Thus I was very impressed with them.

I have to add I took my new iPhone for a test run and the images look gorgeous. I am enjoying the quality of the images, they are more crisp than the images I had from my old Samsung.

Happy Friday everyone! It is finally cooling off here and thus I am even more excited for the weekend! I plan on seeing some of my favorite clients this weekend and stuffing my face with delicious food, how about you? Next up on the blog this Friday is the gorgeous Lisa Frank styled shoot from June.

About this Styled Shoot

I joined a bunch of Houston creatives in June, and this is just one of the styled looks that I photographed that day! Brandy looks stunning in “Willa”. With a non-traditional with a floral print under the white striped fabric, the dress pops! The florals pop against it, in bright hues. The most gorgeous though? That table! Horses, cookies and invites all with the Lisa Frank theme! It all comes together to create a theme so rich your eyes don’t know where to look first!

Ontario in August

Ontario in August

Just a mere two weeks ago I was in Ontario for the wedding of some dear friends Krislynn and Brandon. Brandon and I used to work at Staples together once upon a time, I used to be his manager and he did techy stuff {really we ran around the store like crazies and I think I broke his finger}. Here is a good picture of us being silly{Facebook quality, be warned}:

Their wedding was in Sarnia, a few hours from my hometown. It is right on the border between Canada and the US, and thus I may have loved on the bridge. Groups of people jump into the lake & it was fun to watch! Ok I might have been nervous for them too because the current was fairly strong.
