{Real Wedding} Jess + Charlie | November 13, 2011

I had a blast working with Jess to create her bouquet.  She's one of those clients that you can talk to for a few minutes over the phone, and feel like maybe you went to school together.  Maybe it's the sweet Texas drawl, or maybe she's just plain awesome.   

Recognize the dress?  This is the Vera Wang that Carrie wore in Sex and the City!  Above, my bouquet looks just a little bit cooler because it's sitting next to a sparkly pair of Louboutins.  These are a grown woman's version of the ruby slippers, that's for sure!




This 3-part wedding was pretty unbelievable.  She had a small, intimate affair in Houston.  She left for Italy to continue the celebration, and brought the bouquet to have it blessed at the Vatican (coolest bride ever!)

When she returned to the states in August, they threw a huge part with 500 of their nearest and dearest to continue the party.


I loved looking through her photos. There are so many pictures of guests coming over to check out the bouquet first hand.


The groom couldn't resist sniffing the bouquet to see if it smelled like fresh flowers...



I just had to include a shot of these two little cuties!!

I spent Christmas 2009 with my daughter and her habusnd in London. It was a glorious and magical time. For Christmas 2010 I made your ornaments and used them as napkin rings. Everyone was allowed to take the ornament home as a keepsake. We also incorporated the fun tradition of the English Cracker! Thanks for sharing!

As a designer, I am always looking to expand my skills, especially in the design software that I use to create my signs. I've recently been playing out with a pretty great little feature that allows me to fill a shape with text - and we are loving the result! My favorite application? This "To The Moon and Back" sign!
