2nd Birthday Brunch

My love for all things brunch knows no bounds. If it were up to me, I’d indulge in it daily. But since that isn’t exactly in the cards (both for my waistline and my wallets sake), I’m just going to go big every once in a while. And what better reason to do so than on your birthday! With stuffed french toast, balloon place settings and individual parfaits! I have to say, sweet little Noelle is one very lucky lady. With photos from Soo Kim, there’s more right here. 

From Soo Kim Photography… Our daughter just turned two and we decided to celebrate her special day at home instead of throwing a party. It all started with thinking about some of her favorite foods- yogurt, strawberries, hardboiled eggs, milk- and I realized that they are all very much breakfast foods. Throw in some stuffed French toast for the grown-ups and we had the perfect brunch menu!

I didn’t want to spend too much money or time on DIY’ing the decorations, but also didn’t want to skimp on them either. I decided to do just a few DIY touches myself and find a really great backdrop to set the stage. I wanted it to be casual and as the “hostess”, wanted to enjoy the brunch, too, which was something that I did not get to experience in past parties thrown for my kids, as I was such a crazy DIY’er over prepping, knee-deep in crafts, and setting up on the day-of (lol).

It’s always important for me to include party details handcrafted by me. Even though my kids are too young to appreciate all the planning and care that goes into the parties I throw for them, I do it more for myself. Knowing that I did what I could to make the day a little more special for them totally makes it worthwhile. For this particular day, I made her birthday cake, gold-dipped the yogurt and milk jars, and made mini-balloon place holders.

Noelle and her big brother, Jaden, enjoyed the party so much that they asked for another birthday party the day after the party… and the day after… and the day after that as well!

Romantic Garden Wedding by the Sea

With a garden romance vibe and a view of the ocean, this backyard Florida affair is just what we’d imagine a beautiful seaside wedding to be and it gets bonus points for the amazing vendors that made this day go. From Ozzy Garcia’s gorgeous imagery to pastel blooms a plenty by Divine Design Flowers and design and planning by Beauty In The Making, there’s a ton to pore through in the gallery and in the film by Cool Coconut Studios below.


From The Bride…Anthony and I met through a mutual friend, when we had all signed up for a kickball league in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. At first, I didn’t think he was interested and I was happily single! However , as time went by, we became close friends. That phase didn’t last long… as I got to know him better I could not deny that he was unlike any other man I had ever met. He had so much love to give. He is incredibly genuine and his selflessness struck me to the core. He drowned my greatest fears and took me into his arms higher than anywhere I’ve been before. Never to look back.

From the moment Anthony popped the question, we knew we wanted an intimate, elegant backyard wedding. Inviting our guests to our home felt to be a personal and genuine way to share this significant moment in our lives with the people we love the most.

We turned to a true star, Eileen Morales from Beauty In The Making to design and plan our wedding. Anthony and I knew from the moment we shook hands how lucky we were to have Eileen on our team. Her genuine character, eye for detail, raw talent, and love for LOVE transcended our dream wedding into the ultimate reality. We were fortunate to have the talented film photographer, Ozzy Garcia to capture our most precious moments. Film photography is a dying art that Anthony and I knew would capture our day in an beautiful way. Dmitry of Cool Coconut Studios swept us off our feet with such an awesome wedding film.

My favorite moment of the day was calm before the storm at our First Look on Palm Beach Island. It was a few moments of Anthony and I sharing our vows with each other privately (plus Ozzy and Dmitry in the background shooting away) before we headed down to the Ceremony where celebrated the rest of the evening with our guests.

In the end, there isn’t a single thing I would change about our day, or about the people who truly made our day.

Romantic Winter Park Wedding at Casa Feliz

Let me just start by saying, this gorgeous Bride would fit in the SMP offices so well. I mean, her love for gorgeous blooms, stripes and sparkles? So SMP. Her intimate yet sophisticated wedding beautifully captured by Shannon Lee Miller made us all as giddy as if she as our best friend, and you can see all the reasons why here.

From The Bride…My wedding day was quite a dream and I could’nt wait until the day that I would be able to share it with you. My wedding and reception were held at a historic Winter Park home turned museum in early June. There were about 75 guests made up of family and friends in attendance making the day seem very intimate and full of support from those who are closet to my husband and I. I knew that I wanted my wedding to be extremely sophisticated yet simple, and I achieved this by utilizing the romantic setting of the beautiful Casa Feliz. The classic brick home against the pops of color from the lush landscape created the perfect scene from day to night. We made hand painted signs for all of the food and tables using old picture frames and chalkboard paint, and well as acclectic vintage frames to display pictures aroung the venue. I have always had a love for black and white strips and sparkles( being the girly girl that I am) so I knew that I needed to somehow incorporate both of those into the day. The sequin table runners that I chose were eye catching yet classic, and really popped next to the black and white striped table cloths that were scattered throughout the home. Because I opted for a lot of neutral colors throughout my wedding, I had bright, full bouquets with various shades of pink and coral peonies and garden roses, with pops of bright greens in the bridal bouquet. These colors fit perfectly as center pieces and decoration throughout the house. To accompany the center pieces we used over 100 candles ranging in sizes, each placed within an antique or thrifted candle holder in different shades of gold. On most tables, we were able to find vintage lanterns from different antique stores in both Winter Park and Chattanooga (where the groom is from.) The food was truely amazing and the caterer could not have done a better job. We used Arthurs Catering and chose to do chef stations featuring naything from prime rib and mashed potato bar to grilled shrimp mini tacos with freshly made guacamole. We did small portions of everything so the guests were able to go station to station and try all of the wonderful food options. Overall, It was a magical night that I will never forget, and I hope you, too, can see the charm and love from this special day.
