Ooh, the shoes you'll wear...

I realize colored shoes aren't a new trend and people have been picking a fun color over white for years now, however when I purchased my wedding shoes in 2007, I was oblivious to this great idea. Instead, my traditional side persuaded me to wear ivory silk heels from Grace, which I found on eBay for half price! I did, however, decide to change into beaded, pink flats after I danced with Greg and then my step-dad, and boy, were my feet ready to ditch the heels!

What are you planning to wear on your feet as you walk down the aisle? What about as you dance the evening away? Will you stick to one pair or opt for two or more!? And, are you planning ahead and packing flip flops, just in case?

The above shoe shots are from the fabulous Lisa Kae Photography, and just another sneak peek of some images from the new website redesign.

This past Saturday kicked off our wedding season - and what a way to begin! When I sat down with Amy & Carlo to discuss their wedding a year ago, I knew it was going to be a lovely day - and Saturday proved to be nothing short of fabulous.

Although the weather was a little gloomy outside, both St. Mary's Catholic Church and the Imperial Ballroom were absolutely stunning. From the amazing Casablanca gown Amy purchased from Tami at September's Bride and the lush centerpieces created by Gail VanderLaan, to the beautiful DIY escort candy bars (which I will blog about soon!) and the late night pizza snack - no detail was missed. The dance floor was packed all night long, thanks to Rick Reuther, and the Amway Grand never fails to impress me with their attention to detail.

And with Amy & Darrin on the scene, I will have a photo preview to show you in the coming days. Stay tuned...

Awesome RSVP

Earlier this week, I ripped open the wedding invitation to our April 11th wedding. I was pleasantly surprised to find a Mad Libs-style RSVP. Normally, I fill in my own name, write the number of people attending, and check chicken or beef, however, as you will see above, I got to write in a lot more! So.....

On April 11th, when Ryan and Deanna dance down the aisle, Pearls Events will be there to cheer for them. We are so giddy for Ryan and Deanna. We wish them 200 years of happiness and fun with each other.

Most unique RSVP I've seen in quite some time!
