I really wanted a romantic and intimate feel to our wedding.  Which meant, I wanted lots and lots of candles…  

For colors… We kept it simple and opted for a black and white scheme with deep burgandy, purple and fuchsia accents.  I knew what I wanted from the very beginning, I just couldn’t find a picture of what I wanted.  I was hoping… I was really hoping it would turn out the way I had imagined in my mind.

When we first walked in the room, I remember thinking it was so beautiful. Really.  Breathtakingly beautful.  But, after that moment when you take it all in, it’s not about the room.  It’s about the people… and then your swept away in all the joy of the evening.   

Well, I’ve been pining to see some pictures of the ballroom before the reception began…  And my DOC Erika had these to share…  Thank you Erika!  See more here

I like this first pic for a couple reasons.  1) She’s just a girl having fun. 2) The rich red and pinks of the bouquets look stunning against the black bridesmaid dresses.  I love the other two pics because those floral bouquets are breathtaking.

I just had to share this… Look at this amazing inspiration board that Miss Jaime from It’s a Jaime Thing came up with for my color scheme.  It’s sexy and romantic, isn’t it?  And I love those red heels.  HOT!  If you haven’t already checked out her blog, she has some truly fabulous ideas to share.  Take a peek.

About Me

I love my guy. I love my town. I could have a torrid affair with every cake, cookie and cupcake I come across. I love sharing a good bottle wine with good people! And, I truly enjoy blogging about wedding finds. Which is why...

Change is Coming!
When planning my wedding I loved researching and stalking out Metro Detroit venues, vendors and other finds. Now that I'm married, I'd like to turn this blog into a Metro Detroit Wedding resource for all of you. So, change is coming soon!

Please share great venue, vendor and other finds with my by emailing me!
