West Coast Wedding

A Coastal Wedding

I love simplicity at times, especially in images; a single chair, a window, a door, a bridge....these are some things that always draw my eye. I LOVE this inspiration board. I love the girls in bare feet....wild, carefree, beautiful. The pale,barely there blue... This inspiration board would work so well for a wedding in Victoria on one of our wild west coast beaches. Planning a wild, beach wedding? Come see me, I'll be in bare feet.

Dream a Little Dream of Me


Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
Birds singin' in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me

Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
While I'm alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I'm longing to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me...

Floral Fashionista Friday Presents: Tissage Jewelry Inspiration

I love jewelry without a doubt. I love renaissance people without out a doubt. Those people who are so creative they can't contain themselves to one art form; they have to dabble in many creative pursuits because if they did not they would risk implosion! So, when I came across Tory over at Tissage...
I recognized a kindred spirit. I loved her jewelry instantly; a little bit bohemian , a little bit vintage a whole lot of glam chic!
I've put these earrings on my birthday wish list. Hello! They are purple!
I thought they would be so beautiful for the bride.
Also, so perfect for bridesmaids gifts.

I love this bracelet!
Are you bold?
Or dainty?

Not only does Tory make jewelry she makes hats too! So perfect for the vintage bride.
Perhaps, with these earrings...
...or this necklace.
I love the style of these earrings so perfect for a beach wedding.
Ooh la la! I just love Tissage! So perfect for brides, bridesmaids, weddings and just about anything. Affordable too.
Tissage is based out of Seattle. Tory loves custom work so don't be afraid to contact her with your request. Check out her shop there are so many beautiful pieces there. I personally can't wait for my birthday and those purple earrings!

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!
