A Beautiful Family :Tony and Nikki in Spring

Well, I'm finally getting around to blogging some of my weddings. I finally, have some time to sit down and blog! Blogger is doing something strange and not letting me see what the pictures are as I blog so I am blogging at the end of the pictures as opposed to my usual comments after each picture.
Tony and Nikki were married in May. I remember when they first came for their consultation and thinking to myself what a gorgeous family! Nikki was pregnant and I love pregnant brides. They always look like Goddesses and Nikki is certainly no exception! Also, their little daughter was so adorable and interested in everything I had in the studio. I had her draped in ribbons and playing with little birds. ADORABLE.
The flowers were bright and bold. I also made Nikki a custom hair flower for her hair that you can see in the picture where she is kissing her little daughter. I love that picture! All the professional photos were taken by Mary Jane Howland Photography and I thank her for sharing some of the images of their special day with me the rest are taken by yours truly.
Congratulations Nikki and Tony and your beautiful family!!

Jewelry Inspiration: Swept From the Sea

Swept from the Sea is a local jewelry designer based right here in Victoria, B.C. Yeah! Cheri creates her designs from recycled beach glass found right on our very own beaches and sterling silver. We think her pieces are great for a beach themed wedding and would make lovely gifts for your female attendants. Please check out her shop. She has just had a big Earth Day Sale but am sure she will replenish her shop shortly, so check back.
These are my absolute favorite...flowers and beach glass! Perfect for bride or bridesmaid.
Simple elegance.

Such great jewelry sets for the bride! Very reasonably priced!

A junior bridesmaid or flower girl would love this silver anklet. She has a mermaid one too.
Swept From the Sea such a great business name and we think would make a lovely wedding theme. Think pale aqua, green, or sand coloured bridesmaids dresses, beach venue, bouquets embellished with shells and pearls, flip flops for shoes, seashell embossed cake, seafood appetizers and of course wedding jewelry from Swept from the Sea!
