Real Wedding by Lisa Vorce

It's pretty apparent by now that I seriously heart Lisa Vorce of Oh How Charming! It's true that we've developed a great friendship in the last few years but that isn't why I constantly feature her weddings. It's because I honestly believe that her work is some of the best out there.

And this wedding, is a perfect example of why I love her...

SMP Loves…Royal Buffet

I was looking through Oh Joy! when I came across these fantastic creations by Royal Buffet on Etsy.  The sweetest part about these little creations is that the birds are made from vintage French magazines and recycled record jackets. They are the perfect touch for a rustic chic affair. Head on over to...

Real Wedding: Paloma and Scott, IV

Viansa really was a dream to work with. We had our ceremony in their intimate barrel room, then our reception in the big white tent that they offer...it was gorgeous.

Real Wedding: Paloma and Scott

I completely swooned when I saw this wedding, sent to me by one of our readers who recently married at Viansa Winery in Sonoma, California. When I lived in San Francisco Viansa was the very first winery I ever went to and from that moment, there was no looking back. The Wine Country is hands-down one of the most breathtaking places in the world and this wedding fell instantly into place...

I am constantly on the lookout for great new cake designers, as the wedding cake is such a beautiful place to really show your personality. So, when we discovered Etiquette of Chocolate, I fell in love. And I mean, love... True love. These cakes are that perfect combination of chic with a modern sensibility. Each one just screams style.

From Audrey...

I always knew I would get married outdoors so we decided to have the ceremony on the ballroom terrace where we held our dinner reception. Lisa Garcia, Catering Services Manager at the Wynn, helped us plan a 30 minute pre-ceremony cocktail party in the ballroom next door to the reception so everyone could mingle before...

Real Wedding: Audrey and Brandon

A lot of people ask me why I named my little girl Audrey...well, aside from my love affair with the obvious (Audrey Hepburn, of course), one of the reasons is Audrey Wray. I met Audrey in the 9th grade when we made the same cheerleading squad. Hey, I'm from Texas...I couldn't help myself. I was always a little jealous of Audrey. Aside from being crazy beautiful, she was also such a free spirit. She sang at the top of her lungs for no good reason, she laughed with abandon...she seemed to...
