This fabulous black-tie affair was created by Jubilee Lau Events, with floral and event design by Nancy Liu Chin. Soft pinks were the perfect contrast to the elegant use of black & white. I LOVE the tall flower arrangements.  Lisa Lefkowitz did an amazing job getting such strong shots of the event…breathtaking in fact. Little Black Book paired with SMP to bring me this wedding. Thank you thank you! Enjoy!


This lovely wedding, photographed by Ashley Garmon was quaint and charming. The feeling of the celebration was impeccably captured by Ashley… Everything was lovely, from the sparklers to the color palette of blush, magenta, and ivory. Cyndi looked beautiful… from her dress (one of my favorites to date) to her over all styling, perfection… her low side pony, netted veil, and just a soft touch of makeup… which you know is how I roll. 😉 looked stunning. I love love love that the bridesmaids bouquets were all different, I think we might be seeing more of that in the future. Way to set the trend Cyndi! Remarkably, she had no wedding planner! Job well done Cyndi, my hat is off to you (If I wore hats) well… you get the expression!! Hehe. I had a lot of fun putting this story board together, enjoy!

Here is a collection of some of my favorite pictures from Christian Oth’s team. I find their style so impressive, each picture tells a story and has a photojournalism quality to it, which is a nice breath of fresh air considering that so many wedding photos have a “look this way and smile” vibe. Wedding photography has taken on a whole new style and quality in the last few years. And I am LOVING it! Note to brides, invest your money in a good photographer… it is SO important. And there are too many out there that are amateur and have lackluster style. Find someone amazing and fresh, these are photos you will keep forever so do your research! If you ever need help, I have several of names of professionals that I trust and would trust to do my own wedding. Enjoy these little pieces of art.

Some say that New York City is the fashion capital of the world. To some extent I agree. I think trends are put on display and made popular in NYC, especially when they are debuted at the famous Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. But I think that fashion influence usually stems from Europe and then makes its way to the United States. I’ve seen over the years that many of the trends start in one of the fashion capitals of Europe such as London, Milan, or Paris… and then make their way to New York City. I love my country, but sorry, I personally think that the French and the Italian are the ultimate trend setters. (Think Marie Antoinette) Either way, cheers to worldwide fashion and glamour!!

Thank you to UK Harper’s Bazaar and Italian Vogue for these great editorial shots.

Lets face it, girls like pink…We love pink. It makes us happy. I put together this pink photo story and I was immediately happy upon viewing it. End of story. Well not quite, I think some of the happiness also stemmed from the fact that Jose Villa took some of the photos, the pair of Christian Louboutins in it, along with some tulle, chiffon, feathers, pearls and a wedding bouquet. Not hard to smile at a combination like that. Get happy ladies….

Dear Badgley Mischka Shoes,

I think this may be love at first sight. And I think we could have a beautiful relationship. I will tell everyone how much I love you and wear you with pride… in return, could you please walk yourselves over and into my closet? I’ll take it from there…


Take a look at these finely detailed, fluffy, and whimsical cakes by Maggie Austin. The details in these two cakes are so dainty they remind me of fabric from a vintage gown! I simply adore these airy and etherial cakes. What a little slice of heaven… They make my heart go pitter patter.
