Friday's Sneak Peek at the Corcoran Ball by Occasions Caterers

On Friday, we were invited by Occasions Caterers to go to The Corcoran Museum of Art to preview the different rooms that would make up the 55th Annual Corcoran Ball. Topping over 800 guests, this Museum is transformed into different themed rooms, showing off amazing decor and florals. Since Tim Gunn was the Guest of Honor, the top floor was themed with different Project Runway style tables, with fabric bought from Mood, of course! I'm sure Tim approved of the way Occasions and their team "made it work."

Smitten Sticks- how cute are these!?

I'm a sucker for fun props in wedding and party photos. So, you can imagine my delight when I found Smitten Sticks. Developed by a wedding photographer and a paper designer, these adorable sticks with lips and mustaches (or Moostaches, as my friend Anthony calls them) are perfect additions to your event. Try leaving them inside of a photobooth or near a polaroid guest-book. At only $35/kit (you can order on Etsy), these are a fun, economical way to add some flair to your photos.

Walk With You by Edwin McCain

UPS came today and delivered a small package from a fulfillment center. The contents were an Edwin McCain single and I know it wasn't something that I ordered online. My last run-in with Edwin McCain was at a Grand Opening I put on years ago down in Charleston (Edwin's a South Carolina boy).

Anyway, I popped it in my computer and suprisingly, it's a really sweet song without being overly "wedding-cheesy". Google it to see clips of him performing the song on YouTube or look it up on iTunes. This would be a beautiful Father-Daughter Dance song for those brides looking for something new and unique.

"I'll take this slow, sweet walk with you
You'll let go of my hand to say I Do
And he will discover just how blessed a life can be
I know 'cause all those years ago, someone handed you to me"

It's over 4 and a half minutes, but your DJ can always shorten your special songs if you think anything over 3 minutes of people watching you dance is too way long (like me!) Thank you mystery-sender for a new song to suggest to my brides!

My new blog!

Just about everyone in the industry seems to be blogging these days. To be honest, I've been a little nervous to start. So many things have run through my head: Will this take up too much time? Will anyone read what I write? Will it be a valuable resource for my clients with so many other blogs out there?

Either way, I'm excited about my venture into the world of blogging and hope to inspire you with fun facts about events, weddings and all things creative and fabulous!

More to come soon!
