Planterra Perfection

We love this pale pink honeycomb beauty for Carly and David’s Planterra wedding.  See if you can spot the little gold bee with poured sugar wings.  For more of Carly and David’s wedding, check out Viva La Diva’s blog.

Dreamy Farm Wedding

We love the cafe lights, fun foral, and big smiles at Jess and Ben’s outdoor Misty Farm wedding.  As always Alison and her crew at Viva La Diva knocked it out of the park, and Jess + Nate captured it beautifully.  Featured here is our mini-cupcake dessert table, macarons, and a buttercream cutting cake.

Rebecca & Scott: A Perfectly Curated Wedding

Is being a bride really the stuff dreams are made of?  With the deluge of information available (bridal magazines, blogs, web sites and now pinterest) a bride could easily spend every day, all day of her engagement researching, DIYing, and generally driving herself (and probably loved ones) crazy.  And the result can look like your pinterest board threw up on your wedding: an amalgamation of every great idea all crammed into one day.

The key is to curate all those likes, loves, and pins.  And that my friend, can be much easier said than done.  Rebecca & Scott’s wedding at Cliff Bell’s is a testament to the power of editing.  Creative, fun, and cohesive to boot–it was a gorgeous event. I am loving the rich colors brightened with gold, and how even the smallest details, like the menu and cupcake wrappers look so at home in Cliff Bell’s.
