We are in love with every single beautiful detail planned for our bride and groom, Anjali and Jon, at Gallery 1028.

These Debi Lilly Design dual bud vase/glasses are still a favorite from last year’s Safeway collection…can’t get enough of them.

And can you just guess where this pretty petit vase came from, last summer?

A Paris flea, bien sur.

Wedding photography stylist secret: Did you know a little rain on the streets and sidewalks makes your photos sparkle and shine?

These two.

Oh, I simply couldn’t get enough of them.

I so love it when I get to hang out with the little wedding party vips.

I wished they would never have to go home and go to bed that night…

Just breathtaking, every single bit, non?

Summertime tip: Protect your Ring

Hello and happy summer!

This clever, coral crab beach ad in the new issue of CSBrides magazine reminded me to share a great travel tip.

My latest jewelry obsession: remember to always insure your valuables – especially with traveling this summer – and of course all of you brides and grooms flying off to honeymoon.  

No matter what type of jewelry, gifts symbolize a very special memory, and should be properly insured with my favorite, local midwest friend: Perfect Circle Jewelry Insurance by Jewelers Mutual at ProtectYourRing.com.

Tra la la – now off to travel and soak up summertime inspiration, worry free.
