in honor of mother's day this weekend I thought I would share some of the things that I love and would always enjoy receiving as a gift. (file away for future reference, Joey...)

1 : geometric genevieve.  this has been one of my best sellers since opening up shop- simple, classic design makes it easy to pair with anything. slips easily into your larger bag to hold small essentials so they don't get lost (if you're like me you can't find anything when you need it, especially keys, phone and sunglasses)
2 : marc jacobs daisy.  I don't wear fragrances very often but Daisy has been my go to for the past two years. light, slighty fruity, fresh- it is perfect!! 
3 : stamped name necklace.  you guys! this is the perfect necklace. my friend amy bought one as a bridal shower hostess gift and I fell in love as soon as I saw it in the box.  obviously I went home and immediately told Joey that I had found my mothers day gift (mine is stamped with beckett).  it arrived last week and I haven't taken it off. michelle at the silver wren does amazing work. I've found my new go to for gifts!
4 : anthropologie gift card. honestly, I like just wandering the store and seeing the installations in the window and creative displays. I don't have a problem finding fun things to buy either which is why having a gift card handy is always a plus.
5 : lululemon gift card. I live in work out clothes so sometimes I like to splurge (especially when I get a gift card) and it makes me feel like I'm getting a little dressed up for the day. that counts, right? 
6 : pottery barn gift card.  gifts cards are a theme, huh? I'm so indecisive I'm hard to buy for, so these are perfect! I get to visit stores and wander aimlessly until something catches my attention. fun for those lazy saturdays where I have hours to fill (which is never). ha!
7 : maui jim sunglasses. I love a good pair of aviators and these are the lightest weight sunglasses I've ever worn. plus they don't hurt behind my ears. score!!

hope all you mama's out there have a wonderful day this weekend.
xx

the photo that started it all...

Posted on February 08, 2013 by mckay | 0 Comments

so fridays are dedicated to real weddings and/or tutorials or some sort.  I didn't have a new submission for weddings this week (SEND SOME IN, LADIES!!!) and I didn't finish my tutorial, so thought I'd share a bit from my own wedding.  the photo that started this whole business (above) was taken that day and it was the best day of my life outside of the day beckett joined our family. hope you enjoy! 
my dad found all the wood and handmade the signs that were placed throughout the grounds.
I loved my bouquet. my florist rocked.
they didn't realize their hands and feet would become almost famous. :)
we incorporated a wine/letter ritual during the ceremony.  changing it up a bit from traditional wine ceremonies (that I researched ad nauseum), we each placed a letter in and then as our parents came up the aisle, they placed one in as well.  I hope we make it to our 25th anniversary before opening the box. the wine may be spoiled by then, but the letters; they're priceless.
if you were wondering about my choice of shoes : I went with rainbows. it was a good decision.
our friend kevin's signature wedding move. he goes backwards too!
our wedding was a lot of fun. hence all the dancing photos (and I'm not even a dancer!!!)
matt & reagan were awesome enough to follow us over to FSU (where I went to college) after the reception ended and take a photo of us all in front of westcott fountain. it's one of my favorites from the day and I have it blown up on a canvas in our house. makes me smile every time I walk by. :)

and one last thing just for fun. if you're on the fence about getting a photobooth/smilebooth. DO IT! :)

anna's german wedding.

Posted on January 08, 2013 by mckay | 0 Comments

new year, new blogging goals. actively setting aside a little time each week to work on new posts that feature my absolute favorites : the lovely brides I have the honor of working with on their wedding day. hooray!
anna was the first bride I've worked with in germany (awesome) and was such a pleasure: kind & patient even when her bag got lost in the mail somewhere in europe.  thankfully there was enough time to whip up another and ship it out before the big day. funny story- the original bag found its way back to me 2 months later. :)
she was sweet enough to share a few photos and they are amazing.  her dress? his suit? the setting??? it looks like such a fun, family filled day. so glad I can pass along some of the prettiness to you all.
seriously? I die.
  
danke, anna!!

to the new and improved blog layout! many thanks to angie over at angie makes who helped update my look.  now I just have to get my act together and actually BLOG. I've had a few brides who were sweet enough to send in photos from their weddings and have been so patient with my hiatus from blogging. to them I say- they're coming!!!
