When we create we want to have inspiration around us to keep us inspired. If you have ever had to work in a place that didn't exactly get the creative juices flowing, you probably understand the importance of a nice workspace. When our three year lease expired it became necessary to relocate, and the result is this beautiful creative working space. We wanted the color of our studio to be inspiring inviting space where we would enjoy spending time. We found pieces that made us feel inspired and decorated our workspace with them. The pieces did not have to directly apply to the work that we produce in the space, but something that makes us happy. Being surrounded by things that make you happy can spark new thoughts and create an appealing atmosphere to work in. We were able to accomplish this pretty inexpensive by creating design boards from magazines and incorporating things that were already around our home. little bit august 2012 13 14 little bit august 2012 We kept the furniture simple and added color with accessories for a bright modern look. One of our favorite elements is the Poppin acrylic aqua ruler. little bit august 2012 15 16 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 17 design in 18 little bit august 2012 nspiration Close your eyes imagine a big, blank canvas. How would you decorate it for your wedding? What theme would you have? What colors would you choose? Get creative. You know you're just longing to let your visions run loose. Dream big. This is your big day, after all. Do it your way. Make the uniquely stunning vision in your head become reality. little bit august 2012 19 In table design, tiny details can be tricky. But when color and details blend delicately in this lovely sophisticated design, a work of art is born. Tones of pink with accents of yellow and green create a lively, yet somehow still calming, result.

This is one flower that has endured the test of time and it appears its classic splendor will be cherished for years to come. 24 little bit august 2012 textured linens Exceptional stationery, we know, requires more than technical ability.

Clare got out of the car and walked towards her groom. As she rounded the corner, Matt looked up and saw the most beautiful bride. Clare and her dad finished the daddy/daughter dance; Mr. Brown asked to share a few words. Now you need to understand that Clare and her younger sister adore their dad. Mr. Brown had the microphone and he thanked everyone for being there and then he started to tell a story. He said that 26 years ago, he was putting Clare to bed and it just happened to be her 1st birthday. After he kissed her goodnight he explained that it suddenly hit him just how fast that first year flew by. He mentioned that when he has moments like this, he tends to write exactly what he's feeling. And so on Clare's 1st birthday, he wrote her a poem that he wanted to read to her on her wedding day. 26 years later, Mr. Brown stood in front of his beautiful daughter at her wedding reception and read her the sweetest poem. After everyone wiped away the tears, the food was served and the celebration began. little bit august 2012 55 56 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 57 Dress | Mori Lee , Purchased from Bridals by Natalie in Virginia Reception | The Bolling Haxall House Ceremony | St. Marks Church Coordinator | Anna Burke Florals | Janie Medley Hair and Makeup | Carla Williams DJ | Ran Henry Cakes | Jean Jacques Bakery Catering | White House Catering Bridesmaids Dresses | Alfred Sung Groomsmen | Men's Warehouse Invitations | Shine Invites Favors | Candy Bar Honeymoon | Playa Mujeres 58 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 59 60 little bit august 2012 weddings Laura andRay Conshohocken, PA Photography MK Photography Blush, petal, fuchsia, cerise, magenta..... how many shades of pink could there possibly be? Well we pretty much covered them all for Laura and Ray's wedding at the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia. Their wedding was a mixture of soft and romantic.... to deep and rich tones.... all accented with gold, which fits perfectly in line with the rich and regal aura of the Grand Ballroom. The gorgeous floral included a stunning bouquet of cattleya orchids, peonies, cymbidium orchids, and phalaenopsis orchids. The ceremony wreath -- at a whopping five feet in diameter -- was composed of every color pink we could possibly find! The escort card arrangement had a chandelier-type feel with an abundance of crystals accented with hand-strung blush dendrobium orchids hanging in the center of the table. The centerpieces varied from table to table and each had a coordinating shade of pink as the napkin and cushion. Laura and Ray's wedding was truly a romantic experience for all of the guests. little bit august 2012 61 62 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 63 Venue | Ritz Carlton in Philadelphia Flowers | Beautiful Blooms Entertainment | EBE Milan 77 64 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 65 66 little bit august 2012 weddings Martha andRob Barrington Hill Farm Photography Justin Demutiis Photography Martha and Robert's wedding was on a beautiful spring day at the Barrington Hill Farm. They've been together for 9 years, so most of the guests were close family and friends. Martha is a graphic designer by trade, so the beautiful invitations and save the dates were designed by her. Besides having similar professions, Martha and Rob have similar taste... I love every decision they made for their wedding. The colors, floral, suits/ties, and of course, Barrington Hill Farm a beautiful backdrop for such a special day. little bit august 2012 67 68 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 69 Florist | Northside Florist Equipment Rentals | Coast to Coast Event Rentals Makeup Artist | Michele Renee Hair and Makeup Artist Group Venue | Barrington Hill Farm Dress Designer | Allure Bridal Dress Boutique | Something Blue Bridal Boutique Cake | A Piece of Cake Invitations | Designed by Bride (She's a graphic designer) DJ | John Strandberg with DJ by CJ Hair Stylist | Rachael Hart 70 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 71 72 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 73 74 little bit august 2012 weddings Julie andShareef Norwalk, Connecticut Photography MK Photography With a couple who's been inseparable since their first meeting, a gorgeous setting, an even more gorgeous lace dress, and all the makings of a classic, romantic wedding. The feeling of timeless classic is something that can be looked at now and in 30 years time it will conjure up just the same emotions as when first viewed. You will immediately get that same feel from their wedding day picture. This is one of those few times in your life when you can get your closest friends and family all in one place having a good time together. There was no need for glitz or bright colors, just a timeless kind of beauty to express their timeless love. little bit august 2012 75 76 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 77 Venue Hotel Du Pont | Flowers Matlak Florist | Portraits Gibraltar Gardens Videography Sprint Valley Photography 78 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 79 80 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 81 82 little bit august 2012 weddings Lindsay andSteve Greenough, Montana Michele M. Waite Photography A charmingly beautiful and elegant wedding among the gorgeous and very rustic environment in Montana. The couple chose Montana for their wedding since Lindsay had so many fond memories from her childhood and growing up years since they visited the Big Sky state each year. Because Lindsay's father passed away when she was in high school, it was extremely important to them to find ways to incorporate him and his memory into their wedding. The very idea of having their wedding in a place he loved so much made her feel like he would be that much closer to her on her wedding day. The Resort at Paws Up in Greenough, Montana allowed them to have all wedding festivities on site and for all their guests to stay on property -- exactly what they wanted for a fun-filled weekend where guests could mingle, party, and enjoy the gorgeous scenery at their leisure! Their goal was to keep the rustic feel while bringing in a sense of elegance to the day. little bit august 2012 83 84 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 85 Event Design + Coordination Carter & Cook Event Co. | Venue + Catering The Resort at Paws Up | Florist Habitat Floral Studio | Invitations Dingbat Press with Little Miss Press Calligraphy 86 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 87 88 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 89 wedding photo booth photography by Alli McWhinney Photography // styling by Chanae Johnson 90 little bit august 2012 little bit style ... little bit august 2012 91 92 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 93 94 little bit august 2012 strike a pose ... little bit august 2012 95 96 little bit august 2012 little bit august 2012 97 spotlight Vanessa Scott - Hair Stylist Vanessa Scott is a Master Hair Designer at JcPenney Salon.
