Easter and Spring are upon us and with both of those comes pastel colors and floral patterns. This wedding captured by Giving Tree Photography pretty much sums up how I feel about this time of year. Happy. Excited. Colorful. Eclectic. Fun. With the entire bridal party in their chosen pastel color, this wedding feels like an Easter egg hunt where everyone is a winner and love is the treasure. Too cheesy? Well, that’s what this time of year does for me when life, love and flowers are all blooming at once. Full of love, full of joy, llama included, this wedding leaves me with a smile on my face.  A painting of pure pastel perfection.

I can’t get enough of the spring season, especially now that the trees and flowers are coming back to life here in Seattle. It’s breathtaking and all the more why I love it here and why so many weddings take place during this blooming time of year. Spring is the absolute best season for flowers with a large selection of whimsical and romantic styles that are perfect for your wedding day.

Steve Moore from Sinclair & Moore Events has a history of putting together the most beautiful flower arrangements for every wedding he does, but this Spring wedding below is beyond our fairytale dreams. Steve gushes that peonies, cherry blossoms, apple blossoms, ranunculus, tulips and lilacs are a few of his favorites seasonal textures for Spring. Take his experience and word for it ladies, these flowers are sure to compliment the love that is already in the air for your special day.

Bridal Fashion Week this past weekend was such an amazing experience. As always. Being surrounded by beautiful ornate gowns and industry professionals inspires me all the more. I have been working on my collection of wedding gowns with Maggie Sottero for some time now but after this past weekend I can’t contain my excitement to share these gowns with the world.

The new Fall 2014 collections from Maggie Sottero are extremely beautiful and the selection is very diverse to compliment any bride. From a beaded ballgown to a structured column gown, the newest styles from Maggie Sottero and Sottero & Midgley are sure to please and flatter!image

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to design a collection of wedding gowns and Maggie Sottero has made this dream a reality. Stay tuned for more updates on the collection and when it will be debuted.
