Inspiration: From Bell Tower Open House

You can never get enough inspiration for wedding decor! Here are some photos from the Open House at the Bell Tower on 34th this past week. There were numerous vendors at the open house, but one of my all time FAVES that I always drool over their work was "Darryl & Co." They have some of the most over the top gorgeous decor! It's amazing what they can create!

In this particular room last fall he had a peacock theme and it was drop dead gorgeous! Unfortunately I didn't have my camera then. This time I did not forget my camera and I definitely was not let down. The romantic rich reds he used was sooooo stunning!!

 Walking into this room it was amazing. The lighting on the walls brought a touch of elegance!  I loved the red balls of roses! These things were HUGE!! My favorite part was the crystals hanging at the end of the string of petals! DROOL!
Above this large room was another room up in the balcony that Darryl & Co. had transformed it into a modern ceremony sit…

Happy Belated V-Day

Yes, I know I am totally late on this post, but been so swamped with things going on in my life right now. Feels like the evenings on the weekends are the only times I can blog. Blah!

Happy SUPER belated Valentine's Day! I know a lot of people don't celebrate this today because you should love your mate everyday blah blah blah. I agree, but it is nice to take one day to really go all out.

This V-Day in particular was a special one because it was our first one as a married couple. I know it's cheesy, but I am big on all holidays and 1st anythings. Sorry got a little side track... So we celebrate on the Saturday evening rather than the actual day. Mike took me to an incredible restaurant called "The Bistro" which is Hubbell & Hudson's restaurant. Sooooo delicious!! I am in LOVE with Hubbell & Hudson they have the best everything!

On the actual day we just relaxed most of the day and Mike decided to make my favorite meal he makes for me...Homemade Chicke…

Celebrity Wedding: Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom

I love looking at celebrity weddings as inspiration. Since most of their weddings are just over the top crazy awesome! When I heard that Khloe Kardashian was planning her wedding in less than 10 days. I thought she was crazy! A wedding for 250 and being a black tie affair could not be pulled off that quick and still be what you want as a bride. Well I was totally WRONG! I have to say Khloe and her mom did an amazing job! This was no shot gun wedding! It was one of the most beautiful celebrity weddings I have seen!
The wedding was held of the home of a family friend, music mogul Irving Azoff, in Los Angeles. Note to self....find a long lost family friend to hold a big party at their colossal mansion a castle would work too...that is the waay to do it!
I was anticipating to see what kind of dress Khloe would picked out and she didn't let me down. She chose a drop dead gorgeous tiered strapless Vera Wang gown with a lavender detailed accented sash. The sash was a beautiful way to bring…

Show Inspiration...

Man oh man what a week! So for the past week I have been trying everyday to blog, but something always came up or some kind of distraction prevented me from trying to blog. A lot has been going on and I feel like I haven't even had a chance to breathe. So blogging is my chance to finally breathe. Whew finally!

Okay I am good to go now! Soo...

I helped out my photographer (Montage Photographers) at his booth at the Houston Bridal Extravaganza early January. I had gone the year before as a newly engaged bride...so it was pretty interesting this year being on the other side not being one of them. To be honest it was actually REALLY great not being a bride at this show. I enjoyed and appreciated the show so much more. I guess the reason was because last year I was stressed out about the wedding planning process because at that point I had no idea …
