Bella Bridesmaid and Erin McDermott Jewelry

I had a great meeting last night with Cecily from Bella Bridesmaid and Erin from Erin McDermott Jewelry! Erin and Bella Bridesmaid have teamed up to offer brides and bridesmaids her beautiful jewelry. The look book that was created is FABULOUS and it is so easy for all of the brides to look through and compare the various designs to the dresses in the store! As we all know, I LOVE her jewelry, and think that it is the PERFECT gift for bridesmaids, readers, moms, and pretty much everyone involved! Make sure to check out her website and take a look at all of her beautiful things, and stop by Bella Bridesmaid and look at all of their amzaing dresses!

Photo Booth Props!

  Photobooth Props on a Stick - Mustashe, Lips and Mask Set   Photobooth Party on a Stick - Mustashe, Lips and Glass Set
As we all know, one of the growing trends at weddings is the infamous photo booth! They are always such a blast and people LOVE them! Some people make their own photo booths, while others prefer to hire a company. Either way, they are always a hit! Having a prop box adds something extra! Sometimes they come with a prop box while other times the couple makes their own. While looking on ETSY, I found this adorable set of photo booth props on a stick from Little Retreats. How fun would it be to have a couple of sets of these? Add some boas and crazy hats and you are done!

You can use it on invitations, programs, stickers, napkins, the opportunites are endless!

Welcome to I Do Details Laura and Jeff!

I am so excited to begin working with Laura and Jeff to plan their big day! 
Jeff and Laura had gone away for a long weekend in the beginning of August to Newport, Rhode Island. They were watching the sunset from some rocks looking out over the water at Beavertail State Park. A sailboat was passing by in front of the sunset (which was apparently his cue), and as it sailed off he said, "This is a perfect place, except to try to go down on one knee..." He did though (and didn't drop the ring!), and the rest is history!

They are most looking forward to seeing each other as their lifetime partner and companion, being there for each other through career ambitions, starting a family, and just fun life endeavors. It will be great to embark into the future with someone always by your side...
I can't wait for their big day at The Mint Museum Uptown in October!

The Nordstrom Wedding Suite

As I was flipping through the pages in my newest Nordstrom catalog, I came across an insert entitled The Wedding Suite! Of course I had to see what was inside! They have accessories for the bride, bridesmaids, and groomsmen. There are beautiful suggestions for your honeymoon wardrobe and suggestions for bridesmaid dresses. One thing that caught my eye of course was, the shoes!!! I have highlighted a few of my favorites!

Home - Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros Acoustic Cover (Jorge & Alex...

My dear friend's Cherie and Matt got married this summer in New York, and their wedding was amazing! It had so many personal touches and one of those, was their first dance. They danced to “Home” by Edward Sharpe and The Magnificent Zero’s and you could just see the love between them as they were singing and dancing along. When I saw this video of this adorable father-daughter duo, it gave me chills! I had to share it with you, what a wonderful first dance song!

When chatting with clients about their send off, a majority of them want to do sparklers. I always get asked, "I know it looks pretty in pictures, but where do I get them?" Well, I found this great site that I wanted to share with everyone! It is called Sparkle, and they have various lengths of sparklers at great prices! You can order 36 inch, 20 inch, or 10 inch sparklers. They tell you how long each length burns for and how many you will need for the number of guests attending your event. Be sure to check it out!

Lindsay and Brandon!

From the first meeting with Lindsay and Brandon, I knew we hit it off! I am so excited for their big day at The Mint Museum Uptown in August, it is going to be an absolute blast! Meet this adorable couple!
Lindsay and Brandon were getting ready to head to dinner for their "3 year" anniversary and Brandon surprised her with a new digital camera for their upcoming trip to Maui. They set it on the self timer to test out the new cam and take a picture together before heading out to dinner. After the pic was taken, she said her standard line, "Do we look cute?" and went to view the pics. As she scanned through the 2 photos, there was a photo of a sign that said "Will you marry me?!". As she turned to look at Brandon, he was down on one knee with the ring and he popped the question! It was perfect! Then, two days later they were off to Maui for a week to celebrate their engagement!

They can not wait to see what the future holds for them! They look forward to experiencing whatever life throws at them as a couple and to having the best time ever together, forever!
I am so excited to start the design and planning! Cheers to you two!

Brooke and Kyle

I am so excited to welcome Brooke and Kyle to I Do Details! Their wedding in June is going to be beautiful and I can't wait to continue all of the planning and design!
Brooke and Kyle got in engaged in Charleston, SC. Kyle planned a surprise trip where he booked a weekend getaway to the Ansonborough Inn which is a really cute bed and breakfast. They had a picnic on the Battery and before they ate he got down on one knee and proposed!!! Brooke was so excited she didn't end up eating her food! The rest of the weekend was amazing with wine tasting, shopping and fabulous meals!!
What Brooke and Kyle look forward to the most is enjoying life's special moments, successes, challenges and experiences not only together, but with someone they truly love.
Cheers to the two of you and I can't wait for your big day!
