Just purchased my MSW summer 2011 issue and went right to p.104-112 for some fabulous wedding stationery! This seasons DIY issue features invites from some of my favorite vendors including Carrot & Stick Press and Bella Figura.
Father’s Day is right around the corner and I’ve got a nice round-up today of cards for Dad, starting with Fugu Fugu Press.
I love this moose card, reminds me of growing up in NH!
Festive Father’s Day Stripes by Smock.
How much fun is this Thanks Pops card by Papillon Press? Dad will love it.
I think all Dad’s have rocked a mustache at some point and Egg Press sums it up perfectly with their Sea of Moustaches card.
Sweet J’taime Papa card and Clever Prix Fixe card by Mr. Boddington’s Studio.
For the Dad with a sense of humor and a liking for the green, get this Father’s Day card from Old Tom Foolery.

Engagement photo shoots, some might say, are superfluous to the already long list of wedding expenses. But when it comes right down to it, unless you are a photog pro yourself with a snazzy camera and some serious skills, how many professional photo shoot opportunities are you going to get in your life time, with the love of your life?
While serving up oysters and lobster rolls at Neptune yesterday, I met the sweetest newly engaged couple who were doing part of their engagement session right there at the bar. It has always been one of their favorite places to eat and they wanted to capture that moment, how romantic? (sigh) I also got to meet the photographer, Kate McElwee, who apparently takes super fun, down to earth, capture-the-moment-perfectly photos. I am so thrilled to have met another talented photographer in the area and I highly recommend you take a gander at her website if you’re in need of a wedding photographer.
For more engagement shoot inspiration check out this sweet Havana, Cuba engagement sesh from Jose Villa and this fun Carnival engagement sesh, both via 100 Layer Cake.
I hope you all enjoyed Memorial Day weekend and the accompanying festivities! We had our first cookout this Sunday with family and friends in our new home, kicking off the summer with an abundance of tasty grilled food and delicious frozen strawberry margaritas. My striped paper straws came in handy, I’m telling you, these are so great for parties! I’ve been thinking about selling these in my online shop, what do you guys think?
Back to work! I have an overflowing email inbox that needs some tending to.
