I have a sweet tooth. Ok... I have a gnarly sweet tooth, like last food for life kind of sweet tooth. I'd be lying if any time I went to any event, weddings included naturally, I wasn't straining my neck just a bit to get a preview to what scrumptious treats were bound to head my way. When we got married, having a dessert bar to compliment our wedding cake wasn't even a question, it was more like game on! Whether your hunting for unique new treats for your very own dessert bar or looking to reinvent the wedding treat all together, I have assembled some truly drool worthy sweets to serve as inspiration. As creativity gets stronger, inventive combinations brought together and the quality of product so much stronger, the possibilities are limitless and for that, I am ever so thankful!

It finally happens. The moment is here. He drops to one knee and a breathless yes tumbles from your lips. If you are anything like me, immediately following the moment, you wore a full on smile to the point of your cheeks aching with glee! The adventure beings in so many ways with one simple question. As you’re swept into a world of all things bridal it’s easy to get caught up in all the madness that is wedding planning, sometimes forgetting the smaller details. One detail however, is major and never leaves you, so make sure the element that will lead you through it all, is well prepared… your smile!

Trends can be tricky, in any world. As Ms. Klum put it best, "One Day You're In, The Next Day You're Out!" It seems that when it comes to wedding trends, the length of stay can become a bit exaggerated, rinse & repeating for an almost forever like period of time. As someone who flits through weddings on a daily basis, I've seen more then my share of repeaters and as such, want to inspire a new round of hot tamale trends that will help to break the mold into a new cycle of wedding hotness! Now don't get me wrong, any trend that ever existed had a right to be there and anything that was indeed a trend was so because it was popular & appreciated. In no way am I saying any of these are ugly or unworthy, rather I am simply offering a fresh take, & a new look!

Not to long ago, Green Wedding Shoes featured a pretty amazing anniversary session in South Africa shoot by Adene Photography with a guest appearance by a.... cheetah! Now I could go on forever about why I think cheetahs are awesome, but alas, they are not the center focus of today's design breakdown. The styling for the shoot as a whole, from fashion to floral to decor, is a complete knockout and honestly I could talk about the entire thing, however there is one particular area that I really wanted to zero in on, the amazingly cool floral canopied palette lounge set up. I see outdoor lounge areas crafted all the time with various unique elements, but there is a certain something about this particular setup that is a bit otherworldly & wildly enchanting!
