{inspiration board} No. 7 Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

I've been doing everything I can to be in the holiday spirit when I am not going to be with my hubby for Christmas again. In 2009 he was in Iraq and this year he is in New York. I am thankful that he got a new job and I'm thankful to have my mom and friends here in Savannah to keep my holiday cheer. Our house is completely packed up and ready to move for Dec. 30th so there are no decorations up. Although I did keep the Hanukkah menorah and candles out to light. My kitty loved watching the candles burn each night and one night she got too close and burnt her tail! It was pretty funny! So to keep my holiday cheer in check especially with all the current events, I have created a hybrid inspiration board for Christmas and New Years. Happy Holidays Y'all and see you in 2013!!

{Pin it Friday} Red TOMS shoes

I love it when I find weddings that are wearing TOMS shoes especially because they are such a great cause. Check out all the groomsmen wearing red TOMS and see more of this eco-chic wedding on glamour and grace blog

How to pick the perfect vendors

I had to share this great resource for those getting married on how to pick the perfect vendors! "Finding the right vendor(s) for your wedding day is like dating" says Katie.You need to click over to to read the full post!!!
Tips/ideas for finding that right vendor:
1. Research them
2. Be excited to work with them and the vendors should be excited too
3. Creativity
4. Be comfortable

{inspiration board} No. 6 arrows

{Before I begin my weekly blog posts I would like to say, make sure you tell your loved ones how much you love them. With the recent event I feel that it's so important to give 'em an extra hug.} And now onto today's post....

I had to do a board on arrows since Nicole is kinda obsessed with them. Nicole took over Simply Savannah Events and has been creating great blog post there, plus she also blogs on her personal site with fun fashion and interior design. This board has some pretty jewelry ideas that would be fun for wedding gifts or any gift. Plus there are arrow downloads, arrow invitation ideas, and wedding signs with arrows. I just love the last images of the fancy arrows and think they would be great for a boho style wedding! Enjoy!!

{Real Wedding} Courtney & Harry

This is one of my most favorite weddings from Savannah! I know I can't actually pick my favorites since I loved sooooo many of them, but this was one that I was super excited to finally happen and on the day of the wedding we had so much to do that it kinda went by in a blur. So I'm always thrilled to receive the photos from the wedding photographer after the event and when Rachel sent them, there were so many I loved. Enjoy!!
