Kelli + Brandon {Wedding Teaser by Jen Lynne Photography}

Happy Monday my blogettes! I am happy to announce I am back to the blogging circuit this week after a much needed week away. For a second there I felt so lost out to sea unable to see the shore and now, it feels so good to be back on solid ground with a new […]

Blogettes, it’s official. Andrew and I will be living in our own brand new and first home by November :) And as much as I hate showing non-pretty photos over here, I know some of you have been asking to follow along on this journey with us. And I have to admit this has been […]

Keeping Wedding Guests Comfy

Hi y’all! It’s Lisa, here for another Thursday on Hey Gorgeous. :) We’ve all been there (or we’ve seen someone on TLC’s Four Weddings who has been there :P)—a wedding where you just can’t seem to get comfortable.

Happy

Last night I returned home to Canada. For the first time since Christmas I was able to hug my brother, I was able to rub my mom’s sweet head, which now has the softest covering of beautiful salt and peppered-hued hair, I was able to tiptoe upstairs to peak into my childhood bedroom. As always, […]

I found the original inspiration on Pinterest (the ‘lamp shades’ were covered in Hallowe’en hued paper) but figured I’d give it a go using my fave hues.

Mini Milkshake Shooters

A few weeks ago I was scheming up signature drink ideas for a clients wedding when bam! My ridiculous summer of 2011 ice cream addiction finally came to good use. And I thought to myself, how adorable would Mini Milkshake Shooters be? (Rimmed with semi-sweet chocolate, colourful sprinkles, topped with marshmallows and adorned with a […]

Kelli + Brandon {E-session by Jen Lynne Photography}

It never ceases to amaze me how much I learn from my clients. I learn amazing lessons that live on long after the last guest has headed home from their weddings. And I know such will be true with Kelli and Brandon. With every word Kelli has ever mentioned about Brandon, the sweetness has left […]

Making Registry Gifts More Personal

Hi everyone! This is Lisa again :) A good friend of mine got married a few weeks ago, and I bought them a waffle maker off of their registry. Easy as pie. I clicked on the wedding website, then Target’s website, selected the gift, and presto—it was on its way to their new apartment. Let […]

Reward Yourself

For being brave, for going that extra mile, for working long after everyone else has gone home, for being kind, for believing in your wildest dreams. Whatever it is you conquered today, reward yourself for taking that extra step to be better, to do bigger; for doing exactly what it is you should be doing […]
