{beauty is a process, not an event :) }

The photo shoot for my 2009 magazine ad was this weekend! Although NONE OF THE PICTURES ON THIS POST ARE THE PROFESSIONAL ONES (just my own snapshots), I wanted to give a little preview. Enjoy!

First, we went to Lunatic Fringe in Salt Lake City for hair and makeup. Here are some before and after shots of my lovely bride model, Miss Caitlyn.

The beautification process:
*I've always wanted little ringlets all over my head for my wedding...*

Is that hair not incredible? Want this bomb look? Email hair and makeup artist Zack of Lunatic Fringe at z_norm@hotmail.com
Before the makeup (and still beautiful!)
The amazingly talented Zack and Caitlyn after the completion of the beautification PROCESS.
*Yes, the model in the picture in the background is my very own brother. He is a model!*

The locale of the shoot- can't wait til I get the professional pics! But for now enjoy my own snapshot. Doesn't my little bride model look FABULOUS?
*After the shoot in my front yard*
Loved the hair.
Loved the makeup.
And most importantly, loved the flowers!
Thanks to Zack, Caitlyn, and our photographer, Jonathan (again, these are not his professional pictures) for all the help!!!and p.s. to the cute girl at Lunatic Fringe who loved the flowers and wanted something similar for her upcoming wedding... glad you liked them and look forward to hearing from you! :)

{flashback friday}

The first wedding bouquet I ever made. LOVE IT... it's my favorite not only because I think it's beautiful, but for very personal reasons as well. Love flashback friday. :)

And on a lighter note, this gives a whole new meaning to the words 'flashback friday'. Ha ha. I found a website where you can take a picture of yourself and put it into old yearbook photos from decades ago. Funny! I guess this is what I would've looked like in about 1982. :)

Okay and now I'm off to go work on a big wedding that's tonight. I'm almost done but I need to add some finishing touches! It's going to be bright and beautiful. And this weekend is the photo shoot for the ad! I'm soooooo excited!

{ma saison préférée}

Everyone who knows me knows that Fall is my favorite. I love everything Fall! I created an arrangement today of some beautiful flowers in honor of my most favorite season in the world. Love!

{opinionated? welcome.}

The songs on my new blog playlist (see far right column) are the songs I will hypothetically be using on my new website. I love way too many songs I decided. I had to really limit myself so that the playlist would be somewhat cohesive.
What do you think? PLEASE let me know which songs you love, which songs you hate, or any other suggestions you may have as the list isn't necessarily complete. I need some honest opinions!Thanks to those of you who have already offered suggestions! Much appreciated!

{so excited so excited so excited}

I am pleased to announce that (as some of you already know) Blossom Sweet Weddings will be featured in the four 2009 issues of Utah Valley Bride Magazine (70,000 average readership!). I will have a full page ad, and I will be featured as one of few select florists in the 'flower section' of the mag as well. Love! Can't wait! The photo shoot for my ad is in three weeks. I'll keep you posted!

Oh, and a couple of you have inquired about my new upcoming website and why it's not done yet.... I've decided to postpone it until after my ad photo shoot so that I can put some of those pictures up. Give me 4-6 weeks! Thanks!
