Nie Recovery

Some of you might already be familiar with this story...but it is just so heart wrenching, I wanted to make sure that I was helping to spread the word. The lovely and enviable Stephanie Nielson and her husband, Christian, of the blog Nieniedialogues were recently in a terrible plane crash that killed the pilot and left both Stephanie and Christian with severe burn injuries. If you are a fan of their blog, as so many of you are, you...

Real Wedding – Sasha Souza Events, Brooke and Mark, II

Here is a bit more from Sasha Souza Events...

The bride’s gown is couture Vera Wang with hand sewn crystals accented under the first layer of tulle and along the waist.

The flower girls wore petite garlands of baby spray roses and carried kissing balls to match but the mother’s carried very petite nosegays down the aisle...
