"Ghost" Wedding Dresses

Get a load of these "ghost dresses". What a neat idea for decor at an outside wedding ceremony... especially around Halloween! They're actually kinda spooky...

For the Love of Lavender

Lavender is one of my absolute favorite blooms (hence, the name of our studio~ Lavender & Leaf Designs)! It is actually an herb in the mint family and has a wonderful scent that is said to promote calming and relaxing mood. Here are some fun ways that we have incorporated this fabulous herb into different events ~

Cynthia & Brian- Septmeber 24, 2011

Even though Cynthia and Brian's nuptials were set to take place the day after Autumn began, they weren't quite ready to give up on summer just yet. Cynthia chose navy blue, strapless dresses for her bridesmaids and we complimented their look with fun, vibrant peach and coral gerber daisies, with accents of cream for the glowing bride.The overall look gave off the feel of a spectacular summer day (along with the gorgeous weather!). They said their "I Do's" at the ever so grand Blessed Kateri Church in Lagrangeville NY and then celebrated at our favorite venue, the Links at Union Vale. These fabulous photos were provided by Mark Greenstone of Majestic Studios.
