The Oscars were on last night. I was busy sipping wine, painting my nails, watching and tweeting the Red Carpet. It’s a girl-fest for sure.
I love seeing beautiful people in beautiful dresses. And while I did kinda zzzzzzzzzz through the show (sorry Seth McFarlane, it wasn’t that exciting), here are a few of my picks for dresses that may or may not be worn as your wedding dress.
My absolute favorite of last evening, Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence. I know she tripped, but you would too if you were that excited and nervous from winning Best Actress. This dress is swoon worthy. Dior Haute Couture.
My favorite color in the world. One of my favorite actresses. Seriously, if I re-did my vows with a formal ceremony, I would get married in a plum or raspberry gown. Jennifer Garner NEVER fails. ps Don’t feel bad Jen L because Jen G fell later at the Vanity Fair party. These gowns are dangerous. Gucci.
This may cause controversy but let me tell you who my female crush is, Jennifer Anniston. She could of walked in with a pair of jeans, white button down shirt and blazer and would of looked fabulous. Now I know she tends to have an affinity towards red gowns, but this one did not disappoint me. I like understated. Her hair is always down and flowing, thank you for not chopping it off OR doing an updo. You do you, Jen! Valentino.

Stay tuned tomorrow morning on Local 7 Lifestyles around 8:15am … we’ll be highlighting the last wedding that will be held at the beautiful Old National Bank Headquarters in Evansville, Indiana. This beautiful space will still be open for non-profit or corporate events, but alas, not weddings.
It was truly a detailed with unique wedding planning ideas that left the guests personally touched. I had so much fun planning this wedding the past year with a super fun bride, who was always, so appreciative.
Here’s a little sneak preview. The wedding party doing their interpretation of the movie Bridesmaids.
Love it!Read More »

Is there a new trend for wedding photography? There may just be.
Have your wedding photographer come to your hotel suite for a potentially sexy “Morning After” photo session. Just the bride, groom and your photog. At least that is what the msn.com article said.
Intrigued to learn more, I contacted the photographer, Michelle Jonne. She gave me the low-down on this super cool concept:
“The Morning After” does not take place the night or next day of your wedding for multiple reasons: 1) we respect the wedding night and do not want to photograph any sexual acts 2) we do NOT want to photograph couples that are hung over 3) the photos are done in a tasteful manner and are meant to be implied, playful, sensual, edgy and tasteful all in one. The Morning After not only has to be for newlyweds but any couple in love and wants to capture it. I think it can be used as a tool to re-ignite the fire in ones relationship, celebrate an anniversary.
I totally concur, Michelle. Now at first I was a little doubtful. But realize this is more of a staged photo shoot and is a just a beautiful reflection of a couple’s love. Whether you want it to round out the wedding photo album or frame on your bedroom wall around your anniversary.
Check out this love that Michelle captured:
What do you think? Would you be up for it?
ps You should know that most wedding couples are usually so tired from partying the night before that the morning of starting new lives together is when they actually get to, er, consummate the marriage. Now THAT would be a whole different type of photography session.Read More »
