What the Flamingo??

I'm not sure when this happened, but gone are the days of the flamingo being anything but "tasteful" in the eyes of many.  For the longest time, this beautiful bird was mocked and taunted because someone decided to make little statues of him/her and put them in their front yard.  However, times have changed and it's time for this lovely pink bird to shine!

From flamingo pants, to flamingo cake toppers, everywhere I turn, there is something adorable, might I add, with a flamingo on it.  And how can you do anything but fall in love with those beautiful pink feathers and that stunning stature.

I officially hopped on the bandwagon weeks ago, when I saw the most adorable flamingo bridal shower posted on Instagram. The collaboration was with BHLDN and The House that Lars Built.  I was sold from that point on!

If you want to see a whole lot of flamingo cuteness, be sure to go to,  The House That Lars Built  to see a bridal shower they did!  I am in love with the whole thing!

I'm a huge Audubon fan and this flamingo print, which you can get on  One Kings Lane  right now, needs to find a place to live and I think my home has just the spot for it!

Wedding Wednesdays: Wedding Cake Wonder

The Wedding Cake.  A tradition and symbol of the wedding reception.  It can be one of the most beautiful focal points of the entire event...or it could be an utter disaster!  If you won't take my word for it..just take a moment to google wedding cake fails.  It's not pretty people...I warned you!

I consider myself pretty lucky to be a wedding planner in Charleston, because we have some killer vendors who make the most beautiful and delicious cakes on the planet! (okay so I may be a little bit partial...)  However, there is so much talent out there and everywhere I turn, I'm swooning over some beautiful cake on Instagram.  So not to look like some weird obsessed cake lady and post and re-post my favorite cakes the moment I see one (You're welcome!) I am sharing with you what are some of my newest favs in the cake department.

Choosing these little slices of inspiration weren't hard to do.  As a matter of fact...it was a cake walk!  (Sorry...I had to!) 

I hope you guys enjoy and watch out for your keyboards...because I guarantee there will be a little bit of drooling going on!

This wedding cake is actually from my wedding.  The amazingly talented  Jim Smeal  did this cake and hand did the lace to replicate my veil, which my Mom wore on her wedding day.  I've never seen such talent on a butter cream cake than his cakes!
