Nick and Beth Got Married

I am about two months late on this - but Congratulations to Nick and Beth! Technically, this is not a couple I "worked with" only because the beautiful bride is my Sister-in-Law. Now - being that she planned this wedding from DC, I do like to think that I was a valuable resource to her during the planning process. From picking the venue to confirming ceremony music the day of - I was half bridesmaid/half wedding planner.

It was a beautiful wedding, a ton of fun, and just a great night. Please head over to the Locke Innovations to see more pictures of the beautiful couple!

A few details from their wedding:
1) DLM Oreo Balls were their favors - yummy
2) Family is very important to them so they displayed pictures of parents, grandparents, and siblings on a Heritage Table
3) Keeping in simple they had a small wedding party of brothers, sisters and their spouses
4) The were married by a close friend in a very heartwarming ceremony.
5) They lucked out and got a wonderful fireworks display from Red's stadium
6) Sliders were served late night!
Special Thanks To:

October Wedding

Okay, so I know that I have totally not been a very good blogger lately, but that is because have been so busy with weddings!!!!! As Wedding Season comes to an end and things begin to slow down (kind of) I promise to get back on track.

One of my plans is to offer up a monthy inspiration board. Creating this board was quite a journey for me. I have two little girls so when I think of the month of October the first this that comes to mind is Halloween.

Halloween means, jack-o-lanterns:

But that is a bit too literal for me. So my jumping off point was this:

Just your traditional lantern, great but not really that inspiring. But I soon came across these:

I thought the warm orange glow from these Moroccan Lanterns would be a great, until I came across these:
I love the antique finish on these oil lamps.

So here is the finished product. I love the warmth of the oranges and the reds. I love the comfortable vintage feel it has and with these beautiful sunny October days we have been having, I think it would be a beautiful Mid-West Autumn wedding.
