ADDIE TURNS ONE!
While it's far from the day this little girl will be walking down the aisle, I had to share the A-MAZING birthday celebration of my friend's daughter, Miss Adeline. It was ADORABLE! Her mom, Dina, picked the color palette of Tiffany blue and poppy red and enlsited a few of us to help her make it work!
Wanting to embrace a modern carnival theme, the details were spot-on with a mix of metallic gold, dots, stripes and florals. Spray painted animals were scattered throughout, along with jumbo balloons, bunting and colorful tissue poofs. The kids enjoyed a dunk tank and photo booth and simply could not get enough of the candy bar, sno-cones and cotton candy! (And let me just say, the decadent grown-up treats were more than yummy...) Party success! Happy girl. Happy day.
Looking forward to many more happy (and well-styled) birthdays for this little lady!

El Dia de los Muertos.
It feels authentic...real...passionate - and I have to admit a little bit scary (but cool.)
A national holiday in Mexico, the Day of the Dead begins on midnight of October 31 and ends November 2nd. Focusing on gathering friends and family to remember those who have departed, it is truly a happy celebration of life.
The traditions and customs are not universal. Some people believe possessing an item featuring Day of the Dead artwork will bring them good luck. Many have tattoos, dolls or artwork to represent the spiritual journey.
Gaining popularity as a non-traditional wedding theme, couples are embracing the deep-rooted heritage and emphasis on "til death do us part," and creating a most colorful celebration.
Connecting with creative people is one reason why being a part of GetMarried makes me so happy!
I have been lucky enough to connect with Happily Ever After Weddings and Pam Cooley Photography by word of mouth and mutual admiration...and so begins my chance to post beautiful work by an incredibly fun and talented group!
We get to kick it off with this fun, stylized shoot inspired by the adorable mini cake craze. One of my faves!
I love the girly vibe of the pink, black and white details. I can't help but smile and want to go put on a party dress...and hold a cute little cake!
