Let me tell you something about Beth Petrey and Stan Finch: they are completely and utterly in love! What a beautiful wedding to celebrate their union (Tenessee and Texas, that is).  Talk about a bride that enjoyed her day! She was beaming! Stan looked so handsome as he waited for his bride.

The details:

The ceremony and reception were held at Arlington Hall at Lee Park, Marty Younkin with Love Notes Weddings performed the ceremony, Kristin Colaneri provided hair and makeup styling services, Serenata Strings played for the ceremony, Brooks and Leigh Whittington captured the fabulous affair; Bella Flora designed the space; Switch Lighting added ambiance; Ed Petty with Party Time Production kept them dancing, the cake was Frosted Art, and Blue Diamond Limos drove them into the night.

Here are some of our favorite moments of the celebration:


The moments just before a father walks his little girl down the aisle are priceless.

The detail shots are stunning. That blue hydrangea was the perfect shade! Cesar got it right on the spot!


The guys (and some gals!) enjoyed personalized cigars on the balcony.

Isn’t this a great Groom’s Cake? So creative!

Lizzie turns One!

So, my little girl, Zoe Elizabeth (Lizzie) turns ONE on July 1st! Of course, we had to celebrate with a fun party! I am blessed to have a wonderful group of family and friends that were delighted to rally together to celebrate our Bear.

Being the party planner that I am, I couldn’t have an ordinary party..I had to make it totally “Lizzie”! (Hey, I’m a party planner, not a photographer, so don’t judge me on the photos!)

It started with the invitations:  Three Sixty Events did a great job creating unique custom birthday invitations for my little girl. We mailed party hat invitations to everyone!


Our guests were greeted by a photo of Lizzie taken by my friend Tina Tackett. Lizzie was wearing pink and orange in the photo, it was perfect!


When Lizzie was born, our friends gifted us with Fizzy Lizzy drinks! I thought they were so cute and perfect for the party, I made sure orange and pink balloons were tied to the Fizzy Lizzy Drinks! They were a perfect addition! The guests sipped on Izze Drinks and Fizzy Lizzy Drinks in hot pink and orange..perfect for the festivities!


I’ve blogged about her before, but I HAD to share with you my favorite part of the party! The Lizzie cupcake toppers! Everyone raved over the adorable designs as they added such a dimension of fun to the event. We were thrilled with the outcome! Lizzie’s cute face all over the place! Bug and Boo Designs created these amazing little treats! I love them! Society Bakery made the cupcakes (they are my favorite cupcakes in town!)



We asked our guests to bring a new or gently used toy to donate to a wonderful organization, Dallas Life Shelter. We were thrilled with the generosity of our family and friends! Thank you!


The kiddos left with the perfect summer party favor, bubbles!

Happy Birthday to our sweet Lizzie!

We had a great time celebrating Amanda’s Bat Mitzvah last weekend! Talk about a great family. Amanda did an exceptional job on the bima-we were all so proud of her!

The celebration of Amanda’s accomplishments continued as the kids boarded the bus and headed to Brookhaven Country Club for the LUAU. A Stylish Soireeset the mood with tiki torches greeting the guests. Of course, every guest got a lei and pina colada upon arrival, too!

The kids were entertained by DJ John Stem while Cindy Markman provided tattoos and PicFlips provided plenty of entertaining laughs! Winn Fuqua at Imagine Studios did a FANTASTIC job capturing the excitement of the crowd.



MAZEL TOV, Amanda!

I was browsing Etsy recently (my favorite site!), and came across a couple of killer ideas for those “out of the box” brides.

If you’re looking for a fun keepsake for your family and wedding guests, I love this idea by Artful Beginnings.  Share your favorite quote, wedding vows, or even your wedding weekend details on this unique handkerchief.  It’s the perfect blend of personal, unique, and traditional.

 Another brilliant way to add that special spark to your reception: Cootie Catchers ! (Yes, the Cootie Catcher from elementary school!) These Cootie Catchers offer your guests a great opportunity to engage in childhood fun while discovering the evening’s menu. I absolutely adore this idea!


 I think a fabulous cake topper is the perfect treat for your delicious and beautiful cake.  It’s a great way to show your style and attention to detail.  I love the whimsy of this little bride and groom.
