Style Me Pretty – Kentucky Wedding by Portal Films

Jacki and I couldn’t be more excited or thrilled for how happy Regan and Micheal were about their wedding! We feel that their true emotion for each other, their journey and their glorious wedding day couldn’t be put in a better format than what Portal Films has shown in this short film.  Seriously, you will need your tissues … {I still get teary eyed and I’ve seen the film a hundred times}.

Please go on over to Style Me Pretty and check it out

As a side note, but just as important, we are honored to have been chosen to be a Little Black Book Member for the second year in a row {2009, 2010 and counting}.

Tutu’s for Flowergirls … February 12, 2010

FLOWER GIRLS …   There are so many sweet things to say about these cute little girls that let guests know the bride is on her way by creating a walk way for her.  Most flowergirls take their job very seriously and believe they have important duties for the day!

A hot new trend for brides is to have a “party dress” for the reception.  How cute would it be for the flower girl to have one as well? As we know, the flower girl is the bride’s mini-me for the day! 

At the Kentucky Bride Bridal Show, a new vendor, Tutu’s and Teacups, had adorable tutu’s for flowergirls. 

Below are more photos of the precious Tutu’s and Teacups collection which is available at Mod Boutique and Sugar and Spice!


Also, in the new issue of  Kentucky Bride Magazine, there is an article featuring tutu’s {modeled by Jaime’s daughter, Gracie, and Julie’s daughter, Story}.  These lovely tutu’s were provided by Miss Priss Tutus www.missprisstutus.com

girls just want to have fun … and these girls are smiling the whole time they are “dressed up”


jaimeson’s personal favorite … just had to put in


love this shot of the girls running …


and after all of that running … the girls are just gabbin’ by the fire {ah bliss}


So, if you’ve already chosen that perfect flower girl dress that coordinates with your colors and style for the ceremony, don’t forget that  Tutu’s would be a great THANK YOU present from the couple, especially if the little ladies could wear them to the “dance party” {a.k.a. reception} as their own party dress!!!

Horseshoe Valentine … February 9, 2010

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner … {only five days left}!!!

Even though Jacki and I have RED hair {Jacki for sure, I am more of a strawberry blonde} … red is not our favorite color … GREEN is!

So, for this Valentine’s day, I thought I would share a FABULOUS Valentine that totally encompasses Love, Luck and Kentucky …

Presenting the Horseshoe Valentine from Wiley Valentine {whom we just SWOON over} …

{and don’t you just love their envelopes … they think of everything}

Tell us about your special Valentine … special gift – lovely tradition – sweet love notes – your love story … basically anything gushy – we love it all!!!

Lovely Canvas … February 5, 2010

Let me set the scene …

* New Offices {we moved to our current location in May}

* New Paint {we painted everything – and our signature green is on one wall in every room – very fun}

* NEED – new photos

This is where Josh Perkins with RedTree Photography comes into the “picture”!!!

Josh, the gentleman that he is, offers to do three canvases for our new space with our choice of photos.  How thoughtful and generous!

We’ve worked on some AMAZING weddings where RedTree Photography was involved so we knew the two weddings that we wanted to focus on.  From there – it took us a while – as there were so many beautiful photos.

We narrowed it down to the three below … {two of them are on our green walls}







If you would like to see more of Josh’s work, then you can go HERE, HERE and HERE {click on gallery}!
