Gown Friday!

I love grand wedding gowns.  A girl who chooses to be a bit dramatic in her style choices always makes for a good bride :)
See you next week!

Real Wedding: Nautical Prep

Good morning!  There have been claims of a crazy snow storm hitting the Portland area for days now and finally it has arrived!  Well, not a storm or even close to a couple of inches, but good enough for me enough a cozy day inside :)  

If there is a wedding theme that never gets old to me it's the nautical theme.  I love to see navy blue and yellow against crisp white and endearing touches of gold.  It's so traditional and preppy, it's sweetness to my soul!  The Caketress designed the amazing cake and mini cakes for this wedding, which seem to defy gravity with her now famous ruffle design inspired by Ralph Lauren runway (see here). And in collaboration with Platinum Events Group, they created a nautical themed wedding that is absolutely stunning!
