Something “Pretty” for your New Year’s Eve

Style Me Pretty

Well Happy New Year indeed!  Be sure to take a look at Erika & Bill’s magical woodland soiree wedding featured on Style Me Pretty this morning.  We’ve been lucky to have worked on some amazing, one of a kind weddings this year and are so pleased to see another featured on this site.  Erika is a master of details, and it shows!

Wishes for a Peaceful Holiday

During a season of hope, love, and good will towards others, it is especially difficult to process the magnitude of loss that the families of Newtown, CT are experiencing.  We'd like to take this opportunity to offer our best wishes, empathy and prayers to those effected by this unthinkable violence and all others who have been touched by such tragedy in the past.  

We will be taking a hiatus from our blog until after the New Year. After a year in which our country and those across the globe have seen such devastation, loss and unrest, we'd like to take the next few weeks as a period of reflection and time spent with those we hold dear.  We will return with more beautiful weddings, celebrations, and happenings to kick off a new and hope-filled year. 

Wishing you love & happiness,

Kristin & Pam

2013 Pantone Color of the Year - Emerald

Pantone 17-5641 Emerald

Either I wasn’t paying close enough attention, or Pantone’s annual announcement of their color of the year didn’t have the same fanfare of the past.  A pretty color in it’s own right, Emerald just doesn’t have the same wow factor as years past.  Pantone’s press release touts the shade, “Appropriate for every occasion, Emerald’s classic elegance makes for striking and irresistible women’s formal and everyday wear as well as accessories.”  It’s a rich hue and could work well in the world of weddings.  Definitely in terms of accessories, and perhaps even bridesmaids dresses for more formal or evening affairs.  I have to say, I’m not in love with the choice, but it certainly would be a great background to a bouquet of bright blooms!


What do you think of the color of 2013?
