Country Casual Engagement Party

Happy Thursday! Today we're bringing you this charming, country casual engagement party for our clients, Meredith and Eric.

The couple met last year on Memorial weekend so it was only fitting that their engagment party was held the same weekend, as will their wedding next Memorial weekend 2013 in Napa Valley.

The party was centered around their love timeline: celebrating their past, present and future. We were inspired by a country staple, the mason jar, and incorporated it in the invitations, centerpieces, favors and guestbook. (Check out the oversized mason jar guestbook below!) The decor was casual and simple, but just enough to set it apart from your typical Memorial Day BBQ.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Trending Now 2012

Hello brides, bloggers and fans! We're back and ready to share our wealth of knowledge on wedding trends, bridal fashion and planning tips.

I'm sure many of you are wondering where we've been and why the cold shoulder with our blog? We haven't forgotten about you, we've been bettering ourselves for you! In the past months, we've been in the process of a major face lift for our company, website and blog. While our website is still under the knife, our blog will remain accessible and your source for current and trending topics on all things wedding.

Speaking of trending...our very own Danyett Baxter and Yvette Valdenegro recently collaborated with the lovely ladies of Mia Bridal Couture and hosted an open house showcasing the trending bridal styles in fashion, beauty and wedding design. We met many beautiful brides-to-be, saw the hottest bridal trends and networked with the finest wedding professionals in Houston! It was a smashing hit and we couldn't have done it without the help of our participating vendors. A big thank you to Terilyn and Koby Brown from Archetype Photography, Sarah Tucker Makeup Artistry, Mario Tort from Estilo Salon & Spa, Organic Tan, Acute Catering, Something Special in Flowers, Aztec Events and Rentals and especially Mia Bridal Couture for hosting the event at your beautiful boutique!
