When Dawson and I went to the Detroit Zoo over the summer, when he was working on the movie "Real Steel," we were both amazed by the Peacocks. They have such beautiful colors and I would love to use the blue from these images of the Peacocks.

Save the Dates

Dawson personally designed our Save the Dates and I'm so proud of them. The front of the postcard is a painting by our favorite local artist and friend, Greg Otto. He gave us these cards as an engagement present to use for our save the dates. We spent a whole day printing, cutting, pasting. We did it together, which was fun!

Bridesmaid Dresses

These are some examples of different hues and different styles and it looks so great!! I just don't know how to do this.


Picking these wedding colors is very hard!! I think I am trying so hard to make it perfect that I can't decide. I know for sure that I want blues. I just love all shades of blue. But, what's my accent? Yellow, or a Bright blue, or lavender...
Well, I have to say that the challenge is fun.
I went bridesmaid dress shopping with 6 of my bridesmaids last Friday and had a really hard time deciding the colors. I am open to choosing different shades of blue along with different style dresses, but maybe I am making it too complicated.


I had the most wonderful Thanksgiving this year! I think this was the best. I got to hang out with my sisters, have a double Thanksgiving at the Eatons with my family and at Dawson's parent's house, and then hang out with my friends. The only unfortunate part about the weekend was seeing USC lose to Notre Dame... hehe

Gosh, I just love these branches with a few flowers as centerpieces. It's simple, elegant and not too expensive.

Engagement Photos

Here are some of the Engagement Photos!


I have discovered some beautiful wedding invitations that have handpainted flowers.


I am getting great ideas for inspiration from just googling wedding boards. I really love the colors here. Blending blues and purples is exactly what I want.
I'm still looking for bridesmaids dresses...

Wedding Dress

Even though we have been engaged since April 4, 2010, I thought I would begin sharing the creative process from this point forward.

This past week has been very exciting. I just found out that Dawson is returning from Detroit 1 week from today.

Yesterday, I bought my wedding dress!! I just love it. I won't reveal too much incase Dawson reads these, but I can say that it is simple, delicate and beautiful. I have gone back to the store 5 times now and keep coming back to "the dress" and it hit me yesterday that it is the one.

We ALSO got our tickets for our honeymoon to Paris! So, we have a lot to be excited about right now!!

I decided to create this blog because I really love art and design, so the creative process of the wedding planning is especially fun for me. I would like to share images, stores, displays, fabrics and paintings that inspire me along the way.
