Girls Night In

Though I've always had an inkling, as I grow older, I'm realizing how important girlfriends are for ones sanity. They never fail to shine a bright light on a particularly dreary day, and am always trying to show them just how much they mean. In truth, I can't think of a better way to do so than with a glitsy, girly dinner party a la Gold Leaf Events. Bonus:...

One Year Anniversary Party in Cape Town

Woodland Glam Baby Shower

I've reached that point in life where my Facebook newsfeed is flooded with tiny booties and fuzzy ultrasound photos. In other words: I have a feeling that many a baby shower is on the horizon. And if they're half as lovely as Lovelyfest's, filled with woodland glam & ice cream sandwich bars, I'm happy to oblige. Captured by Alexandra Wallace, there's more adorable to be...

As it turns out, when you pair RomaBea Images with Jill Fawcett, magical things ensue. Things like Mother's Day brunches that are so lovely it's almost painful. Ones that are dripping in delicious details every which way you turn. And if you like...

With the weather on the rise, outdoor fetes on the horizon, and Cinco de Mayo here in full force, it just made sense for us to revisit one of our favourite themed parties to date.

Paperbag Princess 2nd Birthday

My daughter is turning 6 in a few months. And her favorite books are Barbie and My Little Pony and other crazy girly, sort of flimsy stories that she can tote around with her. I miss the days of those classic tales that can keep mommies and babies alike entertained night after night. And perhaps even inspire an entire birthday party! Click here to see even more from...

A Blossoming Easter Tablescape

Easter has always held a special place in my heart. It's been a time of new pastel dresses for church. The beginning of sunny weather. Sugary confections. Daffodils as far as the eye can see. And most importantly, time spent with friends and family feasting around the table. A table set with a sea of natural yellows and greens, bunny themed plates, and homemade coconut cake. Happy Easter Loves! Truly, MKR Photography:...
