I often hear that people “dread” assigning tables for their wedding guests. And as I am sure it is a daunting task it does not have to be as hard as it seems! I learned about this “post it” trick a few years ago and I think this is the easiest way to be able to move around your guests and prepare for your wedding day!
Make last-minute changes easy and less stressful by writing guests' names on these thin adhesive strips (or cut up sticky notes). To rearrange people in a pinch, create color-coded groups, such as bride's family, groom's family, friends, and kids.

Snow came through the area on Friday and covered the streets beautifully for these photos! I was lucky enough to meet Hannah and Matt over a year ago. From our initial meeting I could tell the love that Matt and Hannah had for eachother. In the middle of the planning process Matt was deployed; Although I am sure it was very hard for Hannah she remained very strong and optimistic about the wedding and the planning process. I was lucky enough to get to work with Hannah to shape their wedding through many emails and a few trips back to Minnesota!
Matt and Hannah - I wish you all of the luck and love that your new marriage will give you.. Good luck in all of your adventures!

Every year Pantone names their color of the year. This year it is the vibrant color of Honeysuckle! This color just reminds me of spring, peonies and LOVE!
Here is what Pantone wrote about their color of the year choice: “While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life. “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”
In the Words of Audrey Hepburn.... “ I believe pink”
