Out With The Old, In With The "Blue"

Not used to wearing all white? Walk down the aisle in style with some cute shoes that add fun to your wedding day wardrobe. Hey… you need “something blue” anyway, right?

I like online shopping sites such as, because they have a large selection that is hard to find elsewhere. Plus, clicking search filters beats hours of walking around through mall crowds, anyday!

This specific pair, designed by Benjamin Walk is called “Touch Ups Peacock”.

Bel-Air Wedding: Alexis + Omid

Working with Alexis and Omid was so much fun, both were pleasant and knew exactly what they wanted.  Alexis was a very laid back and calm bride.  I think all she wanted to do was marry the love of her life.  From checking in on Alexis at the hotel while getting ready to meeting Omid at the venue to review final details to meeting and working with the family to working with a wonderful group of vendors, I really enjoyed coordinating this wedding.  Congratulations Alexis and Omid!

Los Angeles Times: Maya + Ron

When asked how a guy from the Philippines fell in love with a girl from the Ukraine, Ron Costales said it was simply, “Destiny.”

From the moment he met Maya Buzinovskaya, he was smitten. That was in 2004, when Costales, a physical therapist, began treating her aunt. Professional ethics prevented him from asking Buzinovskaya out at the time, so he worked like a demon and soon got her aunt up and walking for the first time in a year.  Click on the photo above to read more.

Wedding Inspiration: Love For All Seasons

No matter when you decide to hold your big day, there are endless ways to decorate your venue. Check out some ideas for each season of the year.

Spring: Flowers are in full bloom! Take advantage of having access to a wide variety of flowers this season or even consider your ceremony or reception in a garden.

 Summer: Fresh fruit provide vibrant colors and fun décor!

Fall: Give your wedding an extra touch, by using naturally scented items as your place or escort cards. Cinnamon sticks are easy to find and remind everyone of that Thanksgiving feast.

Winter: Use faux crystals to mimic frost and icicles, giving your reception that extra glam!
