Brides, are you on a budget? Are your invitations not that important to you in comparison to all of the overwhelming details of your wedding? Has the quote you received for printed envelopes or professional calligraphy shocked you? If you answered yes to any of these questions then I'm your girl!
I started addressing friends wedding invitations as a helpful favor or gift with my art degree, self taught, more casual, style of calligraphy or "fancy writing" as I like to call it. Soon I was recommended to their friends, family, and co-workers. I have different colors, styles, tips, and widths to offer for your invitations, at a fraction of the price for professional calligraphy and printing. Email me for more information and prices today!
This years Summer Market was one not to be missed, with cool temps, windy gusts off the lake, and a few quick showers, there was lots of excitement for the vendors. I managed to snap a few pics but wish I would have taken more. For those of you unaware, The Summer Market is unique outdoor festival and benefit held in Avon Lake, Ohio, right on the shore of Lake Erie.
This year the vendors did not disappoint with fabulous furniture, jewelry, art, vintage items, home decor, and a variety of other goods. The food wasn't too shabby either with Tremont's own Fahrenheit food truck serving delish options. Some of my favorite vendors were there: Stash Style, French Hen Farm, Vintage Songbird, Chic Unique Home and my mom's Shabby Shore.

There has been a lot of wedding related talk on the blog lately, and with weddings comes honeymoons right? I seriously could not think of a more ridiculously awesome honeymoon spot then the Four Seasons Bora Bora. Visiting the website is a great way to kill time and daydream, the pictures are over the top incredible. Put this on the list as one of the first things to do/book when and if I ever win the lottery. Until then a girl can fantasize right? The most exotic and tropical place I have ever been is Hawaii and I loved every flippen second of it. I'm envisioning this place perhaps blowing that out of the water. What has been your all time favorite/best destination for a trip?

How cute are these idea's from a DIY wedding I saw on a friends facebook? I LOVE and want to recreate the homemade sign post with all the different locations the bride&groom have lived and their hometowns. And this Dr Seuss quote is probably one of my all time favorite quotes and perfection for any wedding. Beautiful and rustic, love.
These bridesmaids are in the "Colello" earrings, custom ordered and made for this particular bride/wedding party. Originally a J.Crew necklace, turned into earrings!
This bridesmaid is wearing the "Lyndsay" in white, the other half of this wedding party also wore the "Naughty Knots", too cute right? Email me with your wedding party order for your big day!
Introducing the newest earring to the Sis Style collection, the "Colello". I previously mentioned in this post that Sis Style Earrings make the perfect gift or favor for any bachelorette party, bridal shower, or for bridesmaids. Sis Style earrings have also been used as gifts to ask friends to be bridesmaids in the wedding. The Colello earring was made as a custom order for a bridal party to all wear for the wedding and to match the dresses, and I must say they turned out pretty cute!
