French Lick Resort Springs Wedding: Abbie + Derrick

Where do I begin?  The wedding planner’s son gets married 🙂  After coordinating many weddings, it was my turn to be the Mother of the Groom.  I enjoyed every minute and can’t thank my staff enough for helping me.

Abbie and Derrick’s wedding was a wonderful destination wedding at the beautiful French Lick Resorts, French Lick, Indiana. Both Abbie and Derrick are from Southern Indiana and wanted to be married there too.  French Lick was a perfect fit; offering a great weekend getaway, beautiful gardens and lots of activity. It was the perfect spring weekend and the Southern Indiana skies were sunny and bright blue; the same color as Abbie’s bridesmaid dresses.  The resort had lots of activity to offer the guests before and after the wedding.  The ceremony was planned in the gardens, a sudden rain shower caused a change of location plans. No problem for us!  A quick change of plans and the ceremony was held indoors overlooking the gardens.

It was so much fun hosting The Whipstitch Sallie’s Band.  This quartet of ladies played folksy, Americana bluegrass music during the ceremony and entertained at the cocktail hour. After the cocktail hour, guests were invited into the Windsor Ballroom for southern Indiana cuisine and lots of dancing.  The ballroom was detailed with custom linens in midnight, pewter and cornflower blue. Lots of silver accents and hydrangea adorned the tables.

We loved having the band, American Pie + “Mr. Emcee and Super DJ” Scott Evans there.  What a great entertainment combo for a non stop evening of fun and celebration. Thanks to Morgan Matters Photography, Dixon Digital Photography and Love’s Reel for capturing all the special moments and festivities.  It was an unforgettable weekend with a lot of special moments.

 

Love,

Kim

 

Anthropologie’s New Bridal Salon: BHLDN

BLHDN

Kim and I had the opportunity to visit Anthropolgie’s new bridal store, BLHDN in Chicago this week. BLHDN pronounced Beholden, means “to keep” in dutch. The store itself was stunning and set a very classy, yet unique image.  It is only the second location in the entire nation.

Kim King Smith and I really enjoyed seeing all of the stylish, very detailed gowns they had. There were gowns ranging from $600- $6000 in all different styles, including bridal and reception seperates which were gorgeous as well.  For those Anthropolgie fans out there, you will fall in love with all they have to offer. Not only do they have unique bridal gowns but also hair accessories, jewelry, shoes, gifts,and bowties.  You’ll even want to pack a few of their things for may want for your honeymoon, including lingerie.  If you’re in the Windy City any time soon, make sure to put BLHDN on your list of places to visit! You wont regret it! It’s on our list!

Lace is the Look

 

The runway report is in and lace is the new look! Its intricate beauty has captivated queens and starlets since Queen Victoria, and today it
is making a classy comeback with modern cuts and details. If you are looking for something very romantic and soft, lace is a beautiful material for a timeless wedding. It is ultrafeminine, classic, and romantic. Interested in adding a one of a kind detail to your dress? Lace capelets have the look of old Hollywood glam and can be wornover a lace gown. This little added coverage over a strapless gown is a greatvintage or two-in-one look, especially if you are on a budget! Lace is atimeless material, and some go so far as to makelace the theme of their decor. Check out some of these lace accents!
