Lighting Part 2 - Candles

Candles can really transform a space and create a truly magical wedding atmosphere.

Make sure you check with your ceremony and reception sites to make sure candles are allowed as some have policies against open flames.


Some are a simple as these from Crate & Barrel

Or more formal like these silver holders
from Jamali Garden.

Ode to Lighting

A common element of interior design is LIGHTING. Many underestimate the importance of lighting. While this may not be on the top of your list next time you visit your venue check the lighting situation out.

There are so many options out there. Many will hire lighting experts to design their venue. Others will DIY.

Here are some of my favorite finds:

The Beginning of it All

I began planning my own wedding in 2005. I was immediately overwhelmed by the options available to me. I did most, if not all, my research online and found the Internet to be a wealth of information.

This is why I decided to create this blog. Its purpose is to not only give brides/grooms the opportunity to get to know me a little bit better but to help brides and grooms rifle through their many options.
