Spring Wedding Bouquet

Their are so many details that can occupy the space in the reception hall; everything that represents your tastes and personality. Flowers can play a small role in your wedding or they can play a huge one. They can be understated or they can be all encompassing. I for one love, love, love (LOVE) flowers and incorporate them into my every day life as much as possible. Keep in mind that when it comes to weddings, flowers can often break the bank, but if you’re crafty you can have the bouquet of your matrimonial dreams. This is just a little motivation to  get you adding your own personal touch to your wedding.

Shoot and share photo contest

I have known about the Shoot and Share photo contest since last year, 2015 so I got to see firsthand what kind of photos were rated top in the world for this contest. At first it discouraged me, because the caliber of the photographers was more than just amazing – it was unbelievable! Instead of letting these feelings of discouragement overpower me I let them drive me, teach me and give me a mile marker to strive for.

DIY Decorative Wedding Chalkboard Signs

Decorative Chalkboard Signs have been a popular addition to many modern weddings here in the Okanagan. They add a little personal flair and can be charming additions to table decoration, guest lists, signage, and countless other things.
