Wedding Wednesday! All About That Marsala



We had the pleasure of joining in on an open house for The Gallery Event Space in downtown Kansas City. When the theme was decided on, I immediately was giddy! Pantone’s color of the year had won us over!

Every year, Pantone comes out with the color of the year. This year it was decided that the color is Marsala. Pantone said it best when describing this color as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red”!

Marsala is a wonderful addition to a wedding. The color is perfect as a head liner, or even as an accent. The seductive shade draws you in to its embracing warmth, and adds a pop of wildness!

Check out pictures from the open house below!

Make It Over Monday – Wedding Programs



As guests come to enjoy the joining of two hearts at a wedding, one way to make them feel included is to have wedding programs.

Wedding programs act as a timeline and the guide through the events of a ceremony. They help guests know what is going to happen and when to celebrate. Programs not only keep as a record of your big day, but they often introduce the people who helped make your big day happen.

One way to make your programs pop and add some fun to the day is by adding pictures or even a word search!

For wedding programs, there are several options and really the sky is the limit. One of our favorite programs, are our Wedding Flip Book Programs!

They add just the right amount of pop with pictures! With our flip books you can add more text and customize them to fit your needs!

Go ahead, add a picture here, a crossword there, a fun connect the dots illustration everywhere! (just kidding, that would be a lot of dots!!!)

Don’t be afraid to be different! It is your big day, so do what you want to do! :) Let everyone see how special your love is by incorporating your personalities into your wedding stationery!

Wedding Wednesday! – Sweet Romance


As it nears closer to the most romantic day of the year, we found some inspiration for our hopeless romantic brides and grooms out there.

Instead of trying to decide what day of the year is perfect for your big day, let the day find you! Valentine’s Day is a spectacular day to say “I Do”.

With such a rich palette of color, a Valentine’s day wedding is sure to provide a great “WoW” factor.  Rich reds and an array of pink shades will look stunning when matching a gold accent or the gray of the grooms tux.

To add a little twist, we LOVE how this stylish bride made purse bouquets for her bridesmaids!

Follow our Valentine’s inspired pink wedding – Sweet Romance board for more ideas!
