Jana was barely in the door before I mentioned my plans to put her to work. She was more than eager to help and jumped right in. [Read more…]

The Road to Mrs. – How I Chose My Wedding Colors

 

Resident bride-to-be Nicole was generally uninspired by the color combos featured in her bridal mags so she decided to go with a chic and simple black and white palette.
