May Wedding Vendor Challenge

I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in the Best Wedding Sites Vendor Challenge again in May.  This time, the theme was a bridal shower in the colors of yellow, orange and blue.  Pamela Smerker, of Party Starters, put together the design and I simply photographed this time.  What a relief that was!  Pam is an incredibly talented woman and with the help of some other awesome vendors, the table looked incredible.  Big thanks go out to Pamela and her team, including Go Against the Grain for the custom flags, My Pink Little Cake for the custom designed cookies, Green Eyed Susan for the passion fruit macaroons, and Rae Design Studio for the custom message board.  Pamela was the creator of the beautiful treat boxes and ruffled cake boxes.

Something Different!

I forced myself to step outside of my comfort zone on my recent trip home to Iowa.  I actually took the time to pull off the highway on several occasions to photograph the beauty of the midwest, with a fine modern model of a vintage vehicle as the subject.  I’m so glad I did this (and I think the hubs is thrilled too)!  I encourage everyone to think outside of the box they’ve built around themselves and try something new.  On a daily basis, I take mental photographs.  This time, I was able to actually capture those images.
