While chatting with one of my colleagues this week, she told me about this fun product Babycakes that she saw at Kohl's! Babycakes is the creator of the mini-cupcake machine and many more: pie pops, cake pops, mini-doughnuts, whoopie pies, etc. How exciting! This product is definitely going on my Christmas list and...I think I want each product they sale. This product is great for DIY favors and party treats! Check-out the website, Babycakes.

Happy Planning!

Charlotte Wedding: Theckla + Beale 6.25.11

I love my job and feel truly blessed to work with such wonderful couples. My past bride, Theckla and I share a similar background. In my former life, I was an advertising account manager on Madison Avenue and Theckla also worked in New York in advertising, so in our first design meeting I was giddy with excitement when she pulled out an array of vibrant and bold pantone color chips for her wedding color palette. I knew this wedding was going to be fabulous!

Theckla and Beale were married on June 25th at St. Peter's Episcopal Church and the reception was held at the Mint Museum in uptown Charlotte. Theckla and Beale are an amazing couple. Their wedding was full of joy, laughter and good times!

Here are a few pictures from their wedding day. Photography by Cunningham Photo Artists.

Thank you so much to the incredible vendors that worked on Theckla and Beale's wedding!

Live Music!

This past Saturday was the last wedding of the year for Style Perfect Weddings and Events and it was incredible. Lovely couple, wonderful weather, beautiful beach, fabulous decor, great music and breathtaking views of the sunset off of Lake Norman. I can't wait to share the pictures with you!

The entertainment for this weekend's wedding was Kevin Brawley! Kevin was such a pleasure to work with and did a great job with both the ceremony and reception music. Please check him out if you're looking for an acoustic guitar player for your wedding or event.

Music is VERY IMPORTANT to the success of a wedding, whether you're hiring a DJ or booking a live band. Over the year I've had the opportunity to work with many different musicians and live bands. Here are a few of my favorites from this year's wedding season:

Heather Hayes Experience - Incredible live energy band! I was never a huge fan of wedding bands, until I heard them play.

Mo Money - Fun and funky! Great to work with. Very easy going and keeps the crowd on the dance floor.
Mo Money Band

Kevin Brawley - Awesome for small weddings looking for great live music.

Who is your favorite wedding band in Charlotte?
