Vineyard Wedding

February 6, 2010

So, when you look at this blog you might think that I am a little wedding crazy… Well, you are correct. BUT, in my defense, I am a bride to be that is obsessed with pretty things. You had to know that this was going to happen!

I just can’t get over how beautiful this wedding is. I saw it first on the Little Black Book blog, which, of course, is affiliated with SMP. There is just something about the light and the soft colors that makes you feel dreamy just looking at it.

Take a look for yourself:

Maybe its the buttery yellow dresses or the gorgeous tree or the pop of color in the bouquets… I don’t know but it takes my breath away!

And look at this:

Just look what they did with their lighting! It looks like a fairytale. *Sigh* This is what an outdoor wedding should look like. Click on over to to Little Black Book to see the amazing cake, flowers, and paper used for this wedding.

Here are all the vendors they used in case you want to check out their websites too:

Architect + Cake = Just Love

February 5, 2010

Oh SMP, how do you always get such pictures? You are one lucky blog!

Look at this amazing cake:

The groom actually designed the cake because he is an architect and wanted it to reflect his personal style. They put it on a clear box/podium and put branches inside which gave it such a clean, modern feel.

You should really go check out the rest of the wedding photos on SMP because they are simply gorgeous!

And, for a little more greatness, the photographer was Jasmine Star. Just awesome!

10 for 2010

January 29, 2010

How should I start this blog? Should I start with a joke or some sort of whimsical saying? Perhaps an inspirational story that will make you want to go climb Mount Everest or lose 1000 pounds…. Nah, none of that is really me. Rather, I think I will start by telling you why I started Shiny Syndrome.

Rather than starting 2010 with a list of things that I should do but honestly will never get around too, I decided to make a list of 10 things that I can actually accomplish before 2011. Here we go:

1. Get featured on Style Me Pretty. If you are going to read this blog, you must know that I adore the blog Style Me Pretty. Since I am planning my wedding this year, my #1 goal is to infuse my parties with enough personal style and flare that I earn a coveted spot on Style Me Pretty.

2. Give to a good cause without writing a check.

3. Try out 10 new cookie recipes from Martha Stewart’s Cookie of the Day list.

4. Watch a really scary move… For the record, this is my challenge for the year. I am NOT a fan of scary movies but I suppose its time to get it through my blonde brain that they are “imaginary.”

5. Learn to fondant a cake.

6. Make five thoughtful, handmade gifts for people I love.

7. Make my own set of stationary.

8. Celebrate one obscure national holiday. For example, today was National Puzzle Day… That would have been perfect!

9. Attempt to make homemade mallows.

10. Reread the entire Harry Potter series in anticipation of the 7th movie.

So here I go, on a quest to have an awesome time while likely making a hella-ton of mistakes. welcome to the journey. More than likely, I will write more about my real life than about my “10 Things” quest but, regardless, I appreciate you coming along for the ride.
